Israel Says They Want Their Hand Outs From the USA To Be Paid In Euros!

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni

I'm not kidding! This is Chutzpah to the extreme! The Jews of Israel just can't be pleased with all the tax payers' dollars they get now. I guess we should just exchange them for Euros so that Israel does not have to "suffer" the pain of taking free US Dollars.

Secretary of State Rice has acknowledged a communique from Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Levni which requests that all foreign aid payments and loans from the United States be made in Euros rather than in Dollars. Foreign Minister Levni cited the rapidly declining dollar and it's disfavor as a world currency as reasons for the request.

"In the spirit of Yom Kippur, the United States will not hold Israel to any agreements obligating them to accept Dollars as payment for their foreigh aid. We will translate our obligations into Euros or whatever currency that best fits Israel's needs" Secretary RIce said in the Friday, Sept 21 announcement.

"We need to place our Israeli obligations at the top of our national prioriy list. Israel should not suffer any inconvenience due to currency fluctuations" said Rice before heading off to Camp David.

A similar request from Egypt was declined last week.

Hey, the EUROS thing is satire. Take it from me - I know.

The original post has the word "satire" as a tag. But, some people overlooked it, and currently no tags are showing up at the blog because of the high volume of readers (my software has gone buggy).

Anyway, sorry about the mix up.

If it makes you feel any better, I fell for it hook, line and sinker. It's a very well done satire.
