Paratrooper in Israel
An American Paratrooper named Mike O'Brien decided to join the Israeli
Air Force. Things were just too quiet in the States. He explained that
he had lots of experience and was raring to go.
The following Thursday he is outfitted with a parachute and told they
were going to jump over th Golan Heights. He asked, "Where is the
second chute?" The officer in charge told him only one was
necessary. He asked, "What do I do if it doesn't open?" The
officer said "you say the Shema and you have nothing to worry about".
He asked the officer how to say the Shema, and he practiced it
Sure enough his first time out the chute doesn't open. He says the
Shema and an enormous hand suddenly appears and catches him and
gently lowers him to the ground. On his way down he is so stunned by
the enormity of it all he says, "Jesus Christ!" The hand turns over
and drops him out.
