    The captain of a Syrian Air Force transport flying over the Mediterranean sends out a MAYDAY message:
    "This is Syrian Air Force # 174 announcing we have lost one engine and
    want to land at any airport in the Middle East OTHER than Israel!"
    No answer.

    A while later he announces, "This is Syrian Air Force # 174 again.
    We have now lost two engines and need to land at any airport in the Middle
    East OTHER than Israel!"
    Silence.

    A short while later the captain announces, "This is Syrian Air Force
    #174 We are desperate. We have now lost THREE engines an urgently ask
    permission to land at any airport in the Middle East OTHER than Israel!"
    Still no answer.

    Finally the captain calls out, "Help! This is Syrian Air Force #174.
    We have only one engine left and it is rapidly failing. Unless we can
    land we are going to crash. We need permission to land at ANY
    airport in the Middle East INCLUDING Israel!"
    Shortly thereafter, a voice is heard in the Syrian cockpit:
    "Shalom Syrian Air Force # 174. This is Tel Aviv approach control.

    We would like to help. "

    "Allah is praised," says the Syrian pilot. "Please give me instructions."

    "Do you speak Hebrew?"
    "No"
    "OK, then please repeat after me:
    Yitgadal Viyitkadash Shimay Rabbah......"

    THE LAST LINE IS THE START OF THE JEWISH PRAYER FOR THE DEAD.....MIKE
