OMG ‘One Direction’ speak Hebrew (and get kissed by Dustin Hoffman)

It’s been an interesting week if you are a Jewish/Israeli fan of the boy band phenomenon “One Direction.”

The band hung out in New York last week for a concert at the Madison Square Garden, and visited David Letterman on Friday. The guest before 1D was Dustin Hoffman, and when he realized that he doesn’t have a place to sit next to the five British/Irish singers, he decided he will go for the gold and kiss Niall Horan in a very passionate, wet way, which left the “Irish one” very thrilled.

In addition, a video of the band saying “Shalom Israel” surfaced yesterday, which will make many Israelis very happy, because there is nothing better than someone saying “Shalom” to all the Jews.
