Covert Operations in Turkey
Conversation: It has come to our attention that Israel’s neighbor Turkey is experiencing tremendous success. We, the Jewish Diaspora, will not stand for this.
1) Turkey’s GDP currently sits at 15th largest in the world. Our South American office has graciously volunteered to make sure they drop to 87th by February 2014 through a combination of sketchy accounting practices and by petitioning the Ramaz School to coordinate a worldwide Kebab Boycott-Divestment-Sanction effort. If you would like to be part of these efforts, please send intra-office mail to Moises Cohen in our Brazil office.
2) To our undercover intelligence agents who have helped spark the protests in Gezi Park, we wish to extend a hearty yashar koach to you. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed; expect some extra “gelt” this upcoming Hanukkah. Our involvement in another nation’s internal affairs will continue this week, however, PLEASE NOTE: when wreaking havoc in a foreign country’s riots, do your utmost to blend into the local population. Wearing your “Camp Heschel” t-shirt is forbidden.
Also, if you are interested in attending this week’s demonstrations in Istanbul, you MUST have a permission slip signed by your parent or legal guardian NO LATER than Friday, June 30th. Jewish Diaspora members with heart conditions will be forbidden from entering any areas where tear gas or water cannons may be deployed.
