Two Beggars



Two Beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome . One has a

cross in front of him, the other one the Star of David.


Many people go by and look at both beggars, but only put money into

the hat of the beggar sitting behind the cross.


A priest comes by, stops and watches throngs of people giving money

to the beggar behind the cross, but none give to the beggar behind the Star

of David.


Finally, the priest goes over to the beggar behind the Star of David

and says, "My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country;

this city is the seat of Catholicism...People aren't going to give money if

you sit there with a Star of David in front of you, especially when you're

sitting beside a beggar who has a cross. In fact, they would probably give

to him just out of spite."


The beggar behind the Star of David listened to the priest, turned

to the other beggar with the cross and said: "Moishe, look who's trying to

teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing."
