Adam Ferrara lived in Los Angeles' Gaza Strip. (2:00)

CITY?

SKYSCRAPERS AND EVERYTHING.

I'M JUST GLAD TO BE HOME, MAN.

I WAS LIVING OUT IN LOS ANGELES

IN A STRANGE LITTLE

NEIGHBORHOOD.

ON ONE SIDE OF MY NEIGHBORHOOD

WAS AN ARAB SECTION AND ON THE

OTHER SIDE WERE THE HASIDIC

JEWS.

AND I WAS LIKE RIGHT IN THE GAZA

STRIP, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.

AND WHEN THE LAKERS WON, THE

TOWN WENT NUTS.

ALL THE ARAB GUYS WERE

SCREAMING, LIKE, "LAKERS!"

(TRILLING TONGUE)

"LAKERS!"

AND THE WOMEN WERE JUMPING

AROUND LIKE...

(MUFFLED YELLING) "LAKERS!"

(MUFFLED TRILLING)

(APPLAUSE AND LAUGHTER)

YOU WANT TO SCARE THE HELL OUT

OF WHITE PEOPLE?

MAKE THAT NOISE.

I WAS IN MY APARTMENT, LIKE,

"I HOPE THAT'S RAMADAN."

(LAUGHTER)

AND THE JEWS DIDN'T CARE.

THE JEWS CAME RIGHT OUT,

LIKE, (YIDDISH ACCENT) "WHAT'S

THE NOISE?

WHAT'S THAT NOISE?"

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

"WHAT ARE YOU SCREAMING AT,

YOU SAVAGES?

GO FLIP CARS LIKE NORMAL

PEOPLE."

(LAUGHTER)

IF YOU LOOK AT A GROUP OF PEOPLE

THAT HAD FAITH, IT'S GOT TO BE

THE JEWS.

THEY FOLLOWED MOSES THROUGH THE

DESERT FOR 40 YEARS WITH NO MAP.

THERE HAD TO BE ONE GUY IN THE

BACK, LIKE, (YIDDISH ACCENT)

"I DON'T THINK HE KNOWS WHERE

HE'S GOING.

(LAUGHTER)

40 YEARS?

WHAT?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

I WAS 10 WHEN WE STARTED THIS

TRIP.

THAT FOOTPRINT-- MINE, 15 YEARS

AGO.

WE'RE WALKING IN CIRCLES!

NO, NO.

DON'T 'SHUSH' ME,

SHEILA.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

I DON'T GIVE A DAMN IF HE HEARS

ME OR NOT.

YOU'RE LOST, MOSES, YOU COCKEYED

BASTARD!

(LAUGHTER)

PROMISED LAND, MY ASS.

GET THE BAGS.

WE'LL OPEN A DELI."

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)
