Two beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome.
One has a cross in front of him; the other one the Star of David.
Many people go by and look at both beggars, but only put money into the
hat of the beggar sitting behind the cross.

A priest comes by, stops and watches throngs of people giving money to

the beggar behind the cross, but none give to the beggar behind the Star of

Finally, the priest goes over to the beggar behind the Star of David and
says: "My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country,
this city is the seat of Catholicism. People aren't going to give you money
if you sit there with a 'Star of David' in front of you, especially when
you're sitting beside a beggar who has a cross. In fact, they would probably
give to him just out of spite."

The beggar behind the 'Star of David' listened to the priest, turned to

the other beggar with the cross, saying "Moishe, look who's trying to teach
the Goldstein brothers about marketing.
