The Wailing Wall

A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going the the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time.

So she went to check it out. She went to the Wailing Wall and there he was walking slowly up to the holy site. She waited him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a cane in a very slow fashion, she approached him for an interview…

“Pardon me Sir, I’m Rebecca Smith from CNN. What’s your name?”

“Maury Fishbein.” he replied.

“Sir, how long have you been coming to the Wailing Wall and praying?”

“For about 60 years.” he stated.

“60 years! That’s amazing! What do you pray for?”

“I pray for peace between the christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the wars and hatred to stop. I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults, and to love their fellow man!”

“How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?” she asked her final question.

“I feel like I’m talking to a fuckin’ wall.” he bluntly barked.
