    Wanting to knock the lid of someone for spitting in your face is a normal reaction for majority of the world. Is strange that to think they spit on each other in an argument and sit there and take it.

    I've never been to Israel; so I was going off of what I had been told by former IDF that now live in the US. They told me that spitting was common, but it was also the "glove slap" in which fights started immediately thereafter.

    But upon reflection of your comment, I can see how maybe people who told me this might have immigrated from Israel to the US, as they had to much "crazy American" in them.
