* Sabra from MarvelComics is a badass female member of the Mossad and a mutant to boot. And is the SOLE superhero for Israel, which she is more than qualified for. Her codename is the Anglicized form of ''tsabar''.

* In a fourth season episode of ''QueerAsFolk'', when a man is bashed on the street, an angry gay man tries to convince the community that they should stop being such "wimps" and defend themselves. The example he uses to protest against gays taking offensive slurs lying down: "Try calling an Israeli a kike! Man, they'd blow your ass right off the ''face of the Earth''!"

Israeli-born Jews' preferred nickname for themselves evokes the same trope. ''Tsabar'' (pl. ''tsabarim'') -- borrowed into English as "sabra" -- are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opuntia cactus fruits]], soft and sweet on the inside, but tough, thorny and nigh impenetrable outside.

*** It's generally believed that the reason the US started sending in supplies was because Israel secretly threatened to use nuclear weapons against the Arabs.

* ''Film/YouDontMessWithTheZohan'' an Creator/AdamSandler movie [[PlayedForLaughs plays this for laughs]] and [[UpToEleven takes it up to eleven]]. Zohan is, simply put, the baddest man alive. His Palestinian rival the Phantom (a man so awesome in his own right that he can walk on the ceiling) is the only man in the world whose awesomeness can even compare, and he still does not come close. Zohan's most badass feat is shown in a flashback when after being captured and having a hand cut off, said severed hand flies up, chokes his interrogator to death and then ''fetches Zohan a drink''. To top it off, [[AgentPeacock he's surprisingly effeminate]]. His dream in life is to be a hairdresser, which he pursues. And he satisfies his customers in every sense of the word. THe story is based on the real Nezi Arbib, though obviously embellished for humor.

* Israeli bombshell Yael in ''{{Weeds}}'' takes this in interesting directions, especially in her story about her dead commanding-officer boyfriend; apparently when she brought a man in for a threesome, he shot her in the shoulder, but she admits that if he hadn't she would've thought he was a pussy. Plus this whole speech begins with "Israeli men are so macho."
