Humor is contextual. And how it's taken can depend on who's talking, who's listening, and where it takes place. Gen. Jones simply hasn't earned the trust of the Jewish listener to be telling a Jewish joke, as his indifference to Israeli interests and concerns is well known. He's neither family nor friend. When I came across that joke a short time back (from a Jewish source) I found it funny because of how *I* took it - that in the end, the Jew will defeat the enemy of the Jew (represented by the Taliban). Anyone think that's the meaning Jones intended?
