TRY THIS ONE GUYS Alistair
A fleeing al-Qaeda guerilla, desperate for water, was plodding through the
desert when he saw something far off in the distance. He walked toward the
object hoping to find water, but alas, he saw an older Jewish man at a small
stand selling neckties.
The Arab asked, "Do you have water?"
The Jewish man replied, "I have no water, but would you like to buy a tie as
they are only $5."
The Arab shouted, "Idiot Jew! Israel should not exist! I do not need an
overpriced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water
"OK," said the old Jew, "it does not matter that you do not want to buy a
tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that. If you
continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a
lovely restaurant. It has all the water you need. Shalom."
Muttering, the Arab staggered away over the hill.
Several hours later he staggered back, and near collapse said: "Your brother
won't let me in without a tie."
