Rumors emerged over Purim on Capitol Hill, that the Republican Party, splintered and struggling at the polls, has offered Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu the opportunity to run as their candidate in the upcoming United States Presidential election.
An off-the-record source confided:
“According to our latest polls, the only one who can topple President Obama in an election is Netanyahu. The Americans love his square jaw and tough John Wayne stare. Let’s face it – you get chills when Bibi speaks in English. Everyone else on our list sounds like some hillbilly who got drunk at a football game or some Evangelist church party.
With our Republican control over the Congress, we can pass a law allowing a foreigner to be President. If Netanyahu accepts our offer, it’ll be good for us and good for him. This way, Israel will have America’s entire military arsenal behind them to blow Teheran and Ahmadinejad sky high off the map.”
Over Purim, the JewishPress.com tried to reach the office of the Israeli Prime Minister, but he has refused to comment if he will be accepting the offer.
About the Author: Tzvi Fishman was awarded the Israel Ministry of Education Prize for Creativity and Jewish Culture for his novel "Tevye in the Promised Land." A wide selection of his books are available at Amazon.
