We have to laugh during tough times, because that's what Jews do.

Shlomo is on the train reading a newspaper, when his friend Mendel walks in. 

"Shlomo, why on earth are you reading an Arab paper?"

"When I read the Jewish papers, all I find is Jews under attack, synagogues under attack, Israel under attack. But when I read the Arab papers, what do I find? Jews control the media, Jews control the government, Jews rule the world. Mendel, the news is much better!"
