“Let me tell you the one thing I have against Moses. He took us forty years into the desert in order to bring us to the one place in the Middle East that has no oil!”
Golda Meir, May 03, 1898 — December 08, 1978

Who knew Meir had a sense of humor ?
She had a very dry sense of humor, that escaped a good many people. But she honed it in her years living in the United States. A mighty woman, indeed. In many ways, I compare her to Margaret Thatcher.
After the Six Day War a political cartoon depicted Ms. Meir talking on the phone, “Yes, Mr. President, Israel will be glad to take over your war for cost plus 10%.”
I sometimes have wondered, if there might not have been more truth than fiction in that cartoon~! But Lyndon Johnson was President, then,,, ANYTHING might have been possible~!
Lol. Too bad she wasn’t around to find out that right off Israels shore is a Huge deposit,
When I saw this quote, Uriel, I thought of that, too. I’m glad you brought that up. But I don’t know what they’ve done to exploit that to their advantage.
Another 6-day war joke was:
Q. Why did the war last 6 days?
A. The Izzies rented the tanks by the week.
HEY~! One excuse is as good as another~! OR, maybe they didn’t want it to run into the Sabbath???
