What are you doing this Jewish holiday? 

My whole life* I never suspected I was a victim of a Jewish conspiracy:
"Hundreds of Iraqi students demonstrated Wednesday to protest a government decision to extend the weekend to include Saturday, denouncing the scheme as a 'Zionist plot'.

"Irate high school students marched through Baquba, northeast of Baghdad, denouncing outgoing Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's decision to extend the weekend from the traditional Islamic holy day of Friday to include Saturday. 'We don't want Saturday as it is a Jewish holiday,' the crowd chanted."
That might be a brilliant idea for improving productivity in the Old Europe and to make the French finally say goodbye to the economically-insane 36-hour working week: just tell them that Saturday is an Israeli holiday.

* Not quite - in communist Poland only every second Saturday was a day off. We wouldn't want to give the working class too much time off; after all, that's why they're called the working class.
