A wealthy Israeli Jew, riding in his limousine, munching down a Reuben-on-Rye and drinking a cup of Starbucks coffee saw two Palestinian men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate the matter.
He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass?”
“We don’t have any money for food,” the poor Palestinian man replied. “We have to eat grass.”
“Well then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the Israeli Jew said.
“But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.”
“Bring them along,” the Israeli Jew replied.
Turning to the other poor Palestinian man the Israeli Jew stated, “You come with us also.”
The second Palestinian man, in a pitiful voice then said, “But sir, I also have a wife and nine children with me!”
“Bring them all, as well,” the Israeli Jew answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine.
Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the Jew and said, “Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.”
The Jew replied, “Glad to do it. You’ll love my place– the grass is almost three feet tall!”
