ed note–in this case, Hefner is more right than he knows. Flesh peddlers are an intrinsic part of Judaic culture, beginning with the biblical account of Abraham selling his wife Sarah into prostitution to the Egyptian Pharaoh, to Abraham’s nephew Lott giving away his 2 virgin daughters to a group of sex maniacs from Sodom, instructing them to ‘abuse them as you see fit’ to Abraham’s son Isaac following in his father’s footsteps in attempting to sell his wife Rebeccah into prostitution.
Furthermore, when we look at the who’s who of pornography in America, it is clear that it is a Judaic institution, and therefore no one should be particularly surprised to see Hefner making comments such as this concerning the latest Hebrew-version of Playboy being launched in the Jewish state.
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner on Tuesday lauded Israel as a country sharing the core values of his magazine in a pre-recorded message at the launch of Playboy Israel, the first Hebrew version of the men’s magazine.
I’m proud to see Playboy Israel embark on its mission to play an important role in strengthening freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom of the press,” Hefner said in a message at the event at Brown Hotel in Tel Aviv.
“I am equally pleased that so many of the core values of the magazine are also the core values of the country, and the society that has so graciously invited us to be a part of its cultural landscape.” he continued.
The first version of Playboy to be read from right to left, which features an in-depth interview with Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter and racy photos of reality star Natalie Dadon, hits Israeli newsstands on Wednesday.
“Playboy’s been very successful all around the world, even with all the changes in the industry,” Playboy Israel CEO Daniel Pomerantz, an American oleh from Chicago, told the Post. “We’ve done our market studies and we know our audience, and what we found is there’s a very high interest in this particular magazine.”
