-> "Well, after almost allowing the Arabs to finish what Hitler started, we realized that not only was that mirror image necessary, but it must forever be our national policy. From 1973 onward, if nine intelligence analysts came to the same conclusion, it was the duty of the tenth to disagree. No matter how unlikely or far-fetched a possibility might be, one must always dig deeper."

->A Jewish congregation was arguing over whether one should stand or sit during the Shema[[note]]: a very important prayer[[/note]]. Half of the congregation said one should sit, the other half insisted one should stand. Every time the Shema was recited they shouted at each other, “Sit down!” and “Stand up!” The fighting became so bad that the congregation was split in two, each half contending that they knew the tradition in that synagogue.
->Fed up, the rabbi decided to ask a one hundred year old member of the synagogue. “Now, tell us,” said the rabbi, “what is our tradition? Should we stand during the Shema?”
->“No,” said the old man. “That is not our tradition.”
->“Well, then,” said the rabbi, “should we sit during the Shema?”
->“No,” the old man, “that is not our tradition.”
->“What are we supposed to do then? Just stand there fighting among each other each time we say the Shema?" the rabbi asked, exasperated.
->“That,” said the oldest member of the congregation, “that is our tradition.”
