Scott Ott @ ScrappleFace makes a funny laced with truth:
(2007-09-17) — Nobel laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu told CNN this week that the disparity between rich and poor causes terrorism, and that “unless the problem of poverty, or the problem of wealth, is solved, poor men will continue to hate Jews, strap bombs to their bellies and yearn to indiscriminately slaughter others while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.”
“We can’t blame the terrorists nor the teachings of Islam,” said the renowned South African cleric. “After all, ‘terrorist’ is just another term for ‘victim of an unfair distribution of goods’. I’m sure if I ran out of money, and lost my bishop job, I would naturally blame the Jews, fall in with the wrong crowd, and begin training as a suicide bomber. After all, we’re only human.”
Bishop Tutu said he “looks forward to the day prophesied by the Old Testament economist, Isaiah, when ‘Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level…‘ In other words, when everyone has the same amount of money, nobody gets jealous, and nobody feels like exploding anymore.”
