It's a Small World


Have you ever been to Disneyland and gone on the ride "It's a Small World"? Small boats convey visitors on a tour around the world, with singing and dancing dolls showcasing the dress and culture of each nation. Guess who isn't featured there? Yiddish Jews! No star of David no Israel no nothing.  We see veiled Arabs or Muslims but no Yamaka
That's right, Israel does not exist!
Yiddish Jews Robert and Richard Sherman wrote the "It's a Small World"  theme song. Credit where credit is due.

  1. Well! I turned that awful song after a few seconds... last thing I want resonating between my ears.

    I have never been to Disneyland and my children were NOT traumatized by our avoidance of the place. In fact, they are not Disney fans at all.

    Why does my mind hark back to that Tower of Babel and the history there?
