A story is told of a Jewish man who was riding on the subway reading an Arab newspaper. A friend of his, who happened to be riding in the same subway car, noticed this strange phenomenon. Very upset, he approached the newspaper reader.

"Moshe, have you lost your mind? Why are you reading an Arab newspaper?"

Moshe replied, "I used to read the Jewish newspaper, but what did I find? Jews being persecuted, Israel being attacked, Jews disappearing through assimilation and intermarriage, Jews living in poverty. So I switched to the Arab newspaper. Now what do I find? Jews own all the banks, Jews control the media, Jews are all rich and powerful, Jews rule the world. The news is so much better!"

You could replace the nationalities in this joke with anything else and it would still be funny. It is not who is saying it that is funny, but rather what is being said. Its a good joke, don't look at it in any other way than it being a joke, please.

Its all about someone else's point of view. This is not a ha-ha type joke, but it did bring a smile to my face. So in other words the joke did in fact work.
