worth reviewing. There's a great deal of truth in humor... -- Allan
When is a Jew a Jew?
When Paul Newman died not too long ago, they wrote about how great he was but they failed to mention that he considered himself Jewish (born half-Jewish).
When the woman (Helen Suzman) who helped Nelson Mandela died recently, they wrote about how great she was but they again failed to mention she was Jewish.
When Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, Martha Stewart, Randy Cunningham, Gov. Edwards, Conrad Black, Senator Keating, Gov. Ryan, and Gov. Blagojevich messed up, no one told me what religion or denomination they were - because they were not Jewish.
When Ivan Boesky or Andrew Fastow or Bernie Madoff committed fraud, almost every article mentioned that they were Jewish.
This reminds me of a famous Einstein story. In 1921, Albert Einstein presented a paper on his revolutionary but unaccepted Theory of Relativity at the Sorbonne, the prestigious French university.
"If my theory is proven correct," he said, "the Germans will claim me as a German, the Swiss will call me a Swiss citizen, and the French will call me a great scientist and citizen of the world."
"If relativity is proven wrong, the French will call me a Swiss, the Swiss will call me a German, and the Germans will call me a Jew."
