What Goes Around…

 

In the Torah, Isaac used to dig wells in and around Gerar, a city in or very near Gaza. The Philistines filled them in.

Today, Palestinians dig tunnels, and Jews are filling them in.

Is it time, thousands of years later, for the Jews to get even?

[this idea was advanced by a friend of mine]

    Archaeologists have found proof that the Philistines were actually Greeks who had migrated to the region during the collapse. I wonder how those Arabs feel about being called Greeks?

    It’s time for the Gazans to get a new hobby.

    Heck, even Cuba has a tourist industry, and who cares if the smiles are genuine if the service is good?

    Even the Maldives charge a premium, and they’re moslem and they make secret fun of the bride and groom their during their wedding services.  And still they make a fortune.

    Maybe some Psalm 60:8?

    Or if they had dug subway tunnels instead of terror tunnels, they would have one of the best subway systems in the world. They claim 300 miles of tunnels – in contrast the New York City subway has 248 miles.

    The Turks were outraged to find that their ancestors were Greek.

    I relish the gob-smack moment of anybody who thinks that their ancestors sprung out of the very ground on which they stand the same way that mine did.

    Yes, that, too, was glorious.
