One day Mullah Nasruddin went to his neighbour, known to be a mean fellow.
"Sir," he explained, "your ox has gored my cow and killed her after she refused his amorous advances."His neighbours shot back, "So what has that got to do with me? Should a man be held responsible for what an animal does."The Mullah answered cheekily, "Thank you, Sir. Actually it was my ox that gored your cow."
Somehow this story mkaes me think of Internation relations in the Middle East and other parts of this world of conflict!
