You Need A Sense of Humour

You really do, or you'll go nuts, or worse.
I invite you to send me more incongruous examples

Just now, I turned on the computer, went to the Arutz 7 English homepage and saw these two headlines.

Lt.-Gen. Ashkenazi in Auschwitz: 'We Have Learned Our Lesson'
Lt.-Gen. Ashkenazi, the son of a Holocaust survivor, is the first Chief of Staff to lead a delegation of IDF officers on the March of the Living. (complete article)

Defense Minister Barak gives orders to remove three critical checkpoints in Judea and Samaria, allowing terrorists to travel unhindered. (complete article)

  • Do these politicians, and I have no doubt that the IDF Chief of Staff is no less a politician than any MK or Cabinet member, ever really coordinate things? 
  • Do they read their speeches or just recite pretty words? 
  • Do they look any further in the future than the immediate applause of our enemies? But applause is applause, right?

I invite you to send me more incongruous examples like the two I just posted, inconsistency, hypocrisy etc.

Thanks and Keep Smiling, Just Don't Grind Your Teeth Too Much
