Syria Appoints Jewish Acting President

(LNN*) [Damascus ] [I2-26-07] In response to Israel appointing Druze Majali Wahabe Acting President of Israel, Syrian President Bashar Assad is appointing currently unemployed former Israeli President Moshe Katzav as Acting President of Syria. Current Israeli Acting President Dalia Itzik is leaving Israel for a week long visit to the US. Mr. Assad is leaving Syria to further pursue his medical studies in London.

President Assad's secretive Alawite sect is considered similar to the Druse religion.

The state run Syrian Arab News Service (SANS) announced:


"The Syrian Arab Republic believes in peace and reciprocity. If Israel can appoint a Druze as Head of State, Syria will appoint a Jew."

"Mr. Katzav speaks a fluent Arabic, and has presidential experience, as well as experience making way for successors in an orderly fashion on short notice. This will prove useful when President Assad returns from his healing pursuits. Moreover, the press treatment of President Katzav in Israel may indicate that he will adjust well to the historical behavior patterns of the Assad family dynasty."

Further details to be announced on Sunday.

Jewish April Fool's. Well known is that the best Purim Torah and "News" is when the underlying concept kind of makes sense. Kudos.
