Show takes place in Egypt.
The hosts prank the guests by telling them that the show is actually Israeli.
What ensues is pretty disgusting in my opinion, but worth watching because it is truly an insight into the level of hatred for jews buried deep into these people.
Note: the translations are 100% accurate so please don't start off on some tangent about memri tv and all that. They are accurate.

Haters gonna hate.
I could never understand why middle eastern men seemed to descend into shouting matches so quickly whenever they were debating something. Then I read Wafa Sultans book 'A God Who Hates' . It is well worth reading ( especially as she has put her life on the line and recieves daily death threats for writing it ) and it explains the psychology of it and how they see the loudest voice as winning the debate, regardless of what is said.

If this is the kind of attitude (on ethnicity, towards women) that pervades the middle-east I think the notion of the Arab Spring as any sort of liberal democratic flowering to be naive.
Just swapping one racist sexist regime for another.
Edit: Negged by the Jew hating actor in the video. 2012 buddy join the human race yeah?

Billions, millions, thousands...who cares? Any amount those people get for whatever reason is too much. This is exactly the type of nonsense the world did arming the Taliban against the Russians and look where it led them.

What these people did in the video is horrible, and while there is no doubt that tons of people support them it's important to remember that a not insignificant minority doesn't. Also, while their actions are inexcusable, it's overly simplistic to watch a video and judge an entire country based on it. There's equally horrible stuff that Israeli people do, so both sides are wrong.
Also, I'm not sure where this "world is spending billions on to help" thing comes from. The US does indeed give Egypt military aid to the sum of $1.3B, but don't be naive and think they're doing that for Egypt. The US supports the militaries of countries that they believe will come in handy - a smart tactic aside from the fact that it always bites them in a$$ later.
In terms of "humanitarian" donations to Egypt the US donates $250-310 million to Egypt1&2
, while Canada donates $17.83 million3
. That's not a small amount, but it's a far cry from the "billions" that you mentioned. Also, Israel receives aid as well from the US, 2.775B and 400m for military and humanitrain causes respectively.
P.S Full disclosure: I'm Coptic (i.e Egyptian Christian.)
These people shouldn't be getting a penny. They're out there in a civil war destroying their own country, secretly hating Jews and Christians and here we are spending cash on them while we're all in a recession and in record debts.
Also its naive of you to think that I am talking about each and every single Egyptian when i say "them". No one talks in such absolutes.
