Israelis Laugh
At War Humor

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel's
involvement in the Persian
Gulf war as a non-combatant
target has given rise to a
sort of gallows humor.
Although the latest jokes
are just variations of gags
many say have been around
for generations, the enter-
prising Jerusalem Post
published its first anthology
of war jokes Feb. 11.
Some samples:
A Jew, a Moslem and a
Christian rush to the roof to
watch a Scud missile attack.
The Jew looks to see if a
Patriot has knocked out the
Scud. The Moslem blesses
Saddam Hussein. The Chris-
tian files a report for Cable
News Network.
Then there is the competi-
tion for extra large gas
masks between asthmatic
youngsters and Orthodox
Jews who refuse to trim
their beards to fit. The solu-
tion: feed the kids hormones
so they will grow beards.
An official of the Orthodox
Agudat Yisrael party is
shocked to see pigs are being
raised at Kibbutz Mizra
despite the recently passed
law banning the production
of pork in Israel.
They are not pigs, the kib-
butz secretary tells him,
they are sheep wearing gas
masks.
Finally, Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, chafing
under President George
Bush's appeals for Israeli re-
straint in face of Iraqi at-
tacks, is quoted as saying
the last time Jews listened
to a bush they ended up
wandering in the wilderness
for 40 years.

Jewish Groups
Pool Resources

New York (JTA) — Inter-
faith understanding will be
advanced on college cam-
puses in North America
through a new association
between the Jewish
Chautauqua Society and the
B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tions, it was announced here
by JCS Chancellor Roger
Jacobs.
Mr. Jacobs said that
beginning shortly, a com-
mittee of JCS staff and lay
leadership, Hillel profes-
sionals and student leaders
will meet regularly to
evaluate interfaith projects
on their campuses.
The projects will be judged
on the basis of their poten-
tial to appeal to different
groups and their prospects
for improving interfaith
understanding.
