(Washington) - In an effort to get rid of the Iraq problem before the 2008 election the Bush administration today announced it has agreed to sell Iraq to Israel, for the sum of one million shekels ($240,000).
Monica Lewinsky, of Bill Clinton's "oral sex is not sex" scandal, now the new Press Secretary and, once again, the White House "mouthpiece", issued the statement, "Iraq has been a never ending political and financial nightmare. It sucks. Thank goodness it's now Israel's problem."
In Tel Aviv, a spokesperson for the Israeli government stated, "We're going to resell Iraq for 100 million shekels ($24 million) to the Palestinian refugees so that they can all leave Israel and go live there. Maybe they'll be happy there and maybe then they'll stop whining about not having their own homeland. Plus, we'll make a nice profit."
Representatives of the Iraq government could not be reached for comment as they were all busy packing their bags and heading to Abu Dhabi .
Historically, Iraq is an ancient area, thought by many to be the cradle of civilization, and the land which is now Israel, according to the Old Testament, was given to the Jews (aka the Chosen People) by God Himself.
Oy vay, such a world.
