Borat speaks Hebrew!

Remember those scenes where Borat spoke "Kazakh?" It was actually Hebrew! Borat, the Hebrew-speaking anti-Semite.

He also speaks Polish! "Yakshemash," a poor transcription, is Polish for "How are you?"

You do realize Sacha Baron Cohen (the mind behind Borat) is a practicing Orthodox jew, right?

Yes, I do realize that, as is clear from my other posts on the subject. It's still interesting that he chose to speak Hebrew for the scenes in which he was supposedly speaking Kazakh (or the language of Kazakhstan).
