Returning the Treasures to the Looters who Stole them

Over several decades, successive regimes in Iraq systematically destroyed the country’s 2,500-year-old Jewish community and seized its property, down to the last ancient prayer book and Torah scroll.

Iraqi President Saddam Hussein kept it all in the basement of his secret police headquarters. Until the U.S. invasion the material which included thousands of documents, artifacts and everything from Jewish day school records to rare editions of the Talmud moldered away.

In May 2003, 16 American soldiers searching for biological and chemical weapons entered the building, and there in the basement, in four feet of water, they found the waterlogged treasures of the destroyed Jewish community.

The State Department has now announced that the stolen Jewish property will be “returned” to the Iranian puppet regime in Baghdad in September 2018.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
