A thumbs up for Israeli Muslims has the same meaning as a middle finger in the United States. Muslim When getting ready to enter a bus or any crowded area (i.e. - bank, post office, restaurant or open marketplace) we don't expect those from Israel to form a line. This is where you are expected to use the gentle nudge of your elbow to enter. If you wait - you will be last!
The Israeli is ready for immediate action. You can witness this by how many Israelis sit - leaning forward with legs spread apart - ready to stand at a moments notice. Gesture: Hand out in a pinched formation
It could mean: Look what I have here
What it really means: Wait one second, hold on, shut up, I don't care, I'm busy.
The Israeli will ask you to wait by placing their hand up, palm towards their body with fingers coming together - and the hand may shake. Hand Gestures!!!!!!
