Subject: Fwd: FW: This is one of the best emails and it explains why I had to send it to you!
This explains why friends forward jokes.
When it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.
He remembered dying and that the dog walking
Beside him had been dead for years.
He wondered where the road was leading them.
After a while, they came to a high, white stone
Wall along one side of the road.
It looked like fine marble.
At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch
That glowed in the sunlight.
When he was standing before it, he saw a magnificent
Gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl and
The street that led to the gate looked like pure gold.
He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got
"Excuse me, where are we?"
"This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.
"Wow! Would you happen to have some water?"
The man asked.
"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have
Some ice water brought right up."
The man gestured, and the gate began to open.
"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog,
"come in, too?" the traveller asked.
"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."
The man thought a moment and then turned
Back toward the road and continued the way
He had been going with his dog.
After another long walk, and at the top of another
Long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a
Farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed.
There was no fence.
As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside,
"Do you have any water?"
"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there,
Come on in."
"How about my friend here?" the traveller
Gestured to the dog.
"There should be a bowl by the pump," said the man.
They went through the gate, and sure enough, there
Was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.
The traveller filled the water bowl and took a long
Drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.
When they were full, he and the dog walked back
Toward the man who was standing by the tree.
"What do you call this place?" the traveller asked.
"This is Heaven," he answered.
"Well, that's confusing," the traveller said.
"The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.'"
"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly
Gates? Nope. That's Hell."
"Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?"
"No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would
Keep forwarding stuff to us without writing a word.
Maybe this will explain it.
When you are very busy, but still want to keep in touch,
Guess what you do? You forward email's!
When you have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact,
You forward jokes!
When you have something to say, but don't know what,
And don't know how . . . . You forward stuff!
A 'forward' lets you know that . . .
. . . You are still remembered,
. . . You are still important,
. . . You are still loved,
. . . You are still cared for.
So, next time if you get a 'forward',
Don't think that you've been sent just another forwarded joke,
But that you've been thought of today
And your friend on the other end of your computer
Even if it means only forwarding on an email !
Silly French Authorities
At the start of 2017 we're still looking back at 2016.
Today's cartoon is based on a story reported in many places including Israel National News:
Paris rejected Israeli software which could have stopped attackA groundbreaking Israeli security system could have helped French authorities prevent the Paris massacre last November - but authorities balked at the deal under pressure from the anti-Israel boycott movement.
Report claims anti-Israel boycott movement stopped France buying technology which could have prevented massacre.
Speaking to Fox News, an Israeli counter-terrorism source with intimate knowledge of both the software involved and the deal itself said that after the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher attack the previous January an Israeli company offered to provide French authorities with special terrorist-tracking software, which could well have enabled them to flag the ISIS terrorist network operating under their noses. But although the French were initially very keen on the idea, they ultimately rejected it, the source said. "French authorities liked it, but the official came back and said there was a higher-level instruction not to buy Israeli technology," he told Fox News.
"The discussion just stopped." The technology enables intelligence agencies to "connect the dots", by aggregating and analyzing fragmented intelligence from multiple sources to provide a clear, comprehensive assessment. It has already been shared with the US and other Israeli allies, and helps to pinpoint terror suspects and other persons of interest to investigators. The source claimed it could well have helped stop the Paris attacks, and potentially the more recent Brussels attacks as well, which were carried out by the same ISIS terror network".more
