A letter to Hillary

Dear Hillary,

You’ll have to pardon us, but, you see, we here in Israel are kind of busy fighting for our right to exist and we’re really not up to entertaining any annoying guests right now. You would just be in the way.

It would have, however, been nice to see you BEFORE it came to the point where we had no choice but to fight for our survival. You see, being how you’re so concerned about the escalation of violence, we figure you and your pals back in the US had about a decade to try to reign in the Arab terrorists in this region and put an end to the rockets plummeting down on our children. Evidently, the well-being of our civilian population was not a motivating factor for any of you.

With all that said, since you didn’t think it was worth your while to visit BEFORE Israel was forced to finally fight back…well…we’d really appreciate it if you would stay out of our way now…

Seriously, you’re not wanted here.
