    _A Russian Jew had been allowed to emigrate to Israel._

    _At Moscow airport, customs found a Lenin statue in his baggage and asked him, "What is this?"_

    _The man replied, "What is this? Wrong question comrade. You should have asked : Who is he? This is Comrade Lenin. He laid the foundations of socialism and created the future and prosperity of the Russian people. I am taking it with me as a memory of our hero days."_

    _The Russian customs officer was a bit shamed and let him go without further inspection._

    _At Tel Aviv airport, the customs officer also asks our friend, "What is this?"_

    _He replies, "What is this? Wrong question Sir. You should be asking 'Who is this?' This is Lenin, a bastard that made me, as a Jew leave Russia. I take this statue with me so I can curse him every day."_

    _The Israeli customs officer said, "I apologize Sir, you can go on."_

    _In Israel, when he arrives at his new house, he puts the statue on a table._

    _To celebrate his immigration, he invite his friends and relatives to dinner._

    _One of his friends asks him, "Who is this?"_

    _He replies, "My dear friend, 'Who is this' is a wrong question. You should have asked, What is this? This is ten kilograms of solid gold that I managed to bring with me without customs and tax."_

    _MORAL of the Story:-_

    _*Politics is when you perform the same mess in different ways depending on the audience. The end result will be good in every way...*_

    Stalin, knowing that his time was short and that Khrushchev would be his eventual successor, summoned Nikita to a very private meeting. After telling Khrushchev how lonely it could get at the top, Stalin said: "I've left for you two letters containing my wisest counsel in the bottom drawer of the desk. Do not open the first one until things are totally terrible. The second letter should only be opened when you are sure there are no answers to your problems, when you are despairing."

    Khrushchev took over and enjoyed a Russian honeymoon. Then followed trouble: a failed harvest; the five-year plan was two years late and many rubles short; plotting by his political enemies. At 3 a.m. one morning, Khrushchev broke down and opened the bottom desk drawer and read the first letter. Its message: "Blame everything on me . . . Stalin."

    That's what Khrushchev did successfully in a major party address. All the troubles of the present were pinned on the policies of his predecessor. It worked, and the pressure was off, for awhile.

    The second honeymoon was brief. Hostilities along the Chinese border, another lousy crop and the humiliating Cuban missile crisis did very little for Khrushchev's job rating and even less for his own peace of mind. He was down. Then he remembered the bottom desk drawer. Making certain he was alone, Khrushchev quietly opened the envelope and read the one-line message: "Write two letters . . . Stalin."
