The Promised Land
During the first days of creation, God turned to the Angels and said: "I am now going to create a land called Israel. It will be a land of mountains full of snow, sparkly lakes, forests full of all kind of trees, high cliffs overlooking sandy beaches with an abundance of sea life."
God continued, "I shall make the land rich so to make the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Israeli, and they shall be known to the most people on earth."
"But Lord," asked the Angels, "don't you think you are being too generous to these Israelis?"
"Not really," God replied, "wait and see the neighbors I am going to give them."
