A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the Washington DC beltway. Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window.
The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?"
"Terrorists have kidnapped Congress, and they're asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, collecting donations."
"How much is everyone giving, on average?" the driver asks.
"About a gallon!"

Normally I wouldn't expect to get sent to Guantanamo for telling anti-Congress jokes. But these days, anything is possible. Especially if you're Muslim. Or Irish.
Ask Saad Allami. He sent a text message to his sales team urging them to "blow away" the competition. The next thing you know he and his family were being swarmed by anti-terror cops.
Or Leigh Van Bryan. An Irishman living in the UK, he and his friend Emily Banting got the quasi-Guantanamo treatment after posting tweets about planning to go on vacation to the USA to "destroy America" and "dig up Marilyn Monroe." Explaining that "destroy" is British slang for "party" didn't help. Humorlessness and imbecility are apparently requirements for working at TSA.
As an Irish Muslim, with two strikes against me already, I envy the complete impunity enjoyed by Jews like Andrew Adler, who can seriously urge the assassination of President Obama in a published op-ed and get away with it; and Larry Silverstein, who can blow up the World Trade Center, brag about it on national TV, avoid prosecution, and collect billions from insurance companies on the premise that someone else - Muslims of course - did the dirty deed to which he himself confessed!
As an Irish Muslim, if I were to publish an op-ed calling on Hezbullah to assassinate the President, I'd be imprisoned at best, indefinitely detained at worst. Yet Adler's still walking around free. Apparently his ethnic identity is a get-out-of-jail-free card.
That's how it's always been in Zionist-occupied Palestine. If an Israeli Arab kills a Jew, it's curtains for that Arab. Yet Jews kill Arabs all the time with impunity. In fact, IDF snipers have massacred innocent Palestinian children by at least the hundreds, almost certainly thousands, without any significant punishment. An article in the British Medical Journal (10/16/04) concluded: “Two thirds of the 621 children (two thirds under 15 years) killed at checkpoints, in the street, on the way to school, in their homes, died from small arms fire, directed in over half of cases to the head, neck and chest—the sniper's wound. Clearly, soldiers are routinely authorised to shoot to kill children in situations of minimal or no threat.”
But the US, unlike Israel, has Constitutionally-enshrined freedom of religion, as well as an equal-protection clause. Every time a US official treats a Muslim differently from the way a Jew would have been treated in similar circumstances, it is a violation of the Constitution.
Yet Andrew Adler can seriously urge the killing of the President.
While Muslim salesmen get Guantanamoed for trying to "blow away the competition."
It used to be the USA.
Now it's Israeli-occupied territory.
Anyone else ready for an intifada?
