A fleeing Taliban Arab, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghani desert when he saw something far off in the distance.
Hoping to find water, he walked towards the image only to find a little old Jewish man sitting at a card table with a bunch of neckties laid out on it.
The Arab asked, "I'm dying of thirst, can I have some water?".
The man replied, "I don't have any water, but why don't you buy a tie? Here's one that goes nicely with your robes."
The Arab yelled, "I don't want a tie, you idiot, I need water!"
"OK, OK don't buy a tie.But to show you that I've no animosity,I'll tell you that over that hill there, about four miles down the path,
is a nice restaurant. Walk that way. They have water, wine, whatever you want."
The Arab thanked him and staggered away towards the hill and eventually disappeared.
Three hours later the Arab came crawling back to where the man was sitting behind his table.
The man said "I told you, about four miles over that hill. Couldn't you find it?"
The Arab rasped, "I found it all right. Your brother wouldn't let me in without a tie."
