"Hey! Mr. Abdallah Abushawesh, can you get the PA to fund AP Calculus in my high school?"
"Shame on you, Ahmed! I gave strict orders that all advanced courses be stopped and stone-throwing exercises be held instead!"
"But your esteemed sir, advanced classes in math, chemistry, biology, will help me get into college."
"Shame on you, Ahmed! It is a blessing for you to throw away your future by throwing rocks at Zionist pigs! You should want to spend all your time planning attacks on the Zionist entity, which we cannot name!"
"But your honorshipness, I want to go to school to study and make something of myself! And besides, I use Israeli buses all the time and the people ignore me. I shop at Israeli stores and the people are polite to me. I eat in Israeli restaurants and the servers are happy to wait on me. I go to Israeli beaches and have fun and I'm just another person on the beach! Nobody really cares who I am, only that I behave like a civilized person."
"Shame on you Ahmed! You have fallen for that Zionist-entity claptrap! So they let you on their buses, and in their hotels and restaurants and stores, and beaches and nightclubs. So they serve you food with a smile and let you sit in their movie theaters. Do you think that means they really want to get along with you?"
"Er, why, yes, your holiness."
"Shame on you, Ahmed! What does it take to make you understand that the despicable Zionist-entity (which we cannot name) is doing exactly what they are doing in order to harm you? Can't you see their kindness, their normality, is just a ruse to make you a second class citizen?"
"But your bigshotness, isn't it true that Jews have been thrown out of Muslim countries all over the world? Why is that? Why do some modern Muslim countries not even let Jews come on vacation? It seems to me that Israelis are more welcoming to Muslims than Muslims are to Israelis. Why is that? Just yesterday two Israeli soldiers accidently drove into a Muslim town and were assaulted by everyday people. That kind of response doesn't happen anywhere else on the planet! We do we have to act so insane? If I drove into Tel Aviv by accident, nobody would care! I could even ask for directions ! Why do you want us to be uneducated pawns that get arrested for throwing rocks at Israelis? Do you have mental issues?"
"Ahmed, shame on you. You are looking at the issues with an open mind and a brain. I fear I have lost you. Go, go to school and get a good education. Get into university (even one in the Zionist-entity, I hear they are very good), and then start a great career. You will make something of yourself, a doctor, lawyer, CPA, scientist, professor, business owner, whatever. But you will not become a shahid, you will not be rewarded with 72 virgins and riches beyond imagination, you will just be a successful and happy human being."
"I can live with that!"
"Oh lost soul! Get out of my sight. You make the Ummah sad."
"Gladly, your insipidness. By the way, I just got accepted to Technion and will be rooming with 3 other students who happen to be, er..., citizens of the Zionist-entity. We met up already and I already had dinner at one of their homes! Maybe if we tried NOT throwing rocks, everyone's lives would be better?"
"Oh, Ahmed! You are lost to me forever! "
"Bye,Bye, you self-important doofus. I will decide where my life will go, not you. Tell your own kids to throw rocks and to throw their lives away. We don't want to hear it anymore. Your time is over. Maybe I'll even become a diplomat! If a certified backward idiot like yourself can hold the position, just imagine what good a real diplomat can accomplish! Yes, it's time for new faces to lead us. The old guard has let us down too many times."
