“We wish them [Israelis] death and they bless us with life. I am ashamed to be Iranian.”

When Prime Minister Netanyahu made his YouTube video on June 10, offering to help the Iranians with their water problem, it was a masterstroke. For he accomplished several things at once.

First, he reminded the Iranians that Israel has no quarrel with them, but only with the noxious regime that has been engaged in expensive aggression abroad, not least against Israel: “The Iranian regime shouts: “Death to Israel!’ and in response, Israel shouts, ‘life to the Iranian people!’” Throughout his brief talk, he made sure to distinguish between “the Iranian people” and the cruel theocracy that rules them.

He spoke directly — and repeatedly — to the Iranian people, distinguishing between the malign government of Iran, and the people it brutalizes. This is how he put it:

“The Iranian people are the victims of a cruel and tyrannical regime that denies them vital water. Israel stands with the people of Iran, and that is why I want to save countless Iranian lives.”

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.
