Just to clear up the subject, I don't think that Python is the enemy either. 
We already had one Israeli OSDC conference after three YAPCs:

It was successful and very fun. In 2007 we didn't have another one 
unfortunately, and instead opted for a lower-profile, Perl-specific, one-day 
and one-track Israeli Perl Workshop.

I should note that I was also the one who jump-started the Israeli Python 
meetings, albeit I passed the baton of chief Python organiser to someone 
else, who is actually a Pythoneer.

I'm not using Python much, so I'm not fluent in it, and so far don't like 
writing in it too much, but it's a good language and technology.

I still think that the "NASA Using Python" thing as presented is misleading. 
However, this thread gave me a really wicked idea for a parody site (not just 
of of course), which I'm planning to take forward.
