I'm not sure if this is a Mel Brooks skit or Mel Gibson's worst nightmare.

There's a story in the Post this morning about an ex-NYPD cop who wants to train rabbis and congregants to be first responders in the event of an attack.

There are a few things that stuck out for me. Check out the second to last paragraph where we discover that the guy promoting this isn't so much an ex-NYPD cop as he is a fired NYPD cop. I don't know if there's something there or if it's just lazy reporting, but I'd be curious to know what's behind that.

Also, you must watch the video. There's the guy quoted as saying (paraphrased), "God commands us to protect our health. You can't be healthy if you're dead." And then there's a moment a the very end of the video..."That's not supposed to happen."

I'm going with the Mel Brooks concept.

Haven't watched the video yet, but I now want to see an action movie where the hero, a gun-toting rabbi/cop says, "God commands us to protect our health--you can't be healthy if you're dead" before dropping the bad guy off the edge of a building. I think the bad guy should be played by William Dafoe because he's awesome.

I've known a few radical rabbi over the years, and would not have been at all surprised to find they were toting weapons of some sort!

It could only be Mel Brooks if it had a musical number in it somewhere.

You never saw the trailer for History of the World Part II, with the segment Jews in Space?
