Say Shibboleth. Sibboleth.

Sibboleth . Or if you're from Eire (Southern Ireland) say 'Three'. Tree.

A shibboleth in English has come to mean a test to see if you are one of us.
The reason for this little lesson in language and accent is that the South tend to see the Israel/Palestine conflict as Brits/Irish and in the same order. It may come as no surprise that, in the North, Protestant Christians support Israel as they see the conflict the other way round. This is a generalisation as the following remarkable video will demonstrate. 

The speaker hits all the issues with unerring accuracy. Well worth listening to.

Another excellent video from Top Israel Videos.
