The two go out “for coffee,” he says, and she tells him about the senior thesis she hopes to write on Beduin handicrafts. Somehow, they both wind up in his apartment, “for more coffee,” he says. Linda’s thought process: “I don’t know what to do—he’s so handsome I could just die. On top of that a lifetime of dating Israeli guys has made them take no shit.They often take the upper hand in the relationship and you could, after a beer or two, classify them into two main types: – The Yemenite/Moroccan girls who are argumentative, bossy and used to getting things all their own way. In other words, most outsiders don’t really understand that the average Israeli male is not a gentle warrior—he’s a pig. Linda is a junior at Cornell and has decided to spend the year at the Hebrew University. Most believe the stereotype that all Jewish men are gentle nebbishes, so grateful for female companionship that they wind up fulfilling the punchline of the old joke: A boy comes home from school and tells his mother he’s been cast in a class play. The mother nods sympathetically and says, “Don’t worry, son, next time I’m sure you’ll get a speaking part.” Many women have also been led to believe another stereotype, that Israelis look, act and smell like Ari Ben-Canaan as played by Paul Newman—rough-edged men, cynical romantics, riding bareback into enemy villages at high noon to smash terrorist cells and work on their tans. Take a wimp accountant, mix in a freedom-fighting guerrilla, and what you have is a noble warrior who gets permission from his wife to go raiding after 6 p.m., seven on weekends.
