Too many Jews...

Ynet is telling about a newly discovered Jimboism:

Former US President Jimmy Carter once complained there were "too many Jews" on the government's Holocaust Memorial Council, Monroe Freedman, the council's former executive director, told WND in an exclusive interview.

Former US president also rejected Christian historian because name sounds 'too Jewish'...
Which immediately reminded me a joke told during the same period (1980 or a bit earlier) about Carter's kissing buddy - Leonid Brezhnev of the late USSR.

Some time before the 1980 Olympic games Brezhnev (B) calls one of his flunkies (F).

B: Listen, F - these forinners will swarm our capital soon, and we have to show them that our minorities are being well taken care of.

F: Minorities? We don't have no minorities in Moscow, comrade Brezhnev! Only good loyal Soviet citizens.

B: Oh, come on, you know whom I mean, these troublemakers...

F: Oh, you mean Jooz?

B: Right, F. Quick thinking.

F: So, comrade Brezhnev, should I remove them... for a while, that is?

B: No, you dummy, just the opposite. I want you to create 20, no, make it 30, synagogues, with all that Jooish stuff and attending worshippers. All that is needed to show the tourists that Jooz are free to pray to their hearts' content. You have a month to report back to me.

In a month:

F: Comrade Brezhnev, I have a report to make. Your order was implemented, but there was a snag...

B: What, didn' t you locate enough buildings?

F: No, buildings are fine, some closed churches were reopened and cleaned up a bit.

B: So what - a problem with the congregation?

F: No, that was easy - all highly trained and loyal KGB people, not a hitch on this front...

B: Now come on, what is the deal, man?

F: It is the rabbis, sir...

B: Wazzat - aren't they Soviet people? Aren't they loyal? Aren't they communists, for Lenin's sake?

F: Well, comrade Brezhnev, they are all Soviet citizens, loyal to the hilt and, of course, communists...
