There once was a powerful Japanese emperor who needed a new chief
So he sent out a declaration throughout the entire known world that he
was searching for a chief.

A year passed, and only three people applied for the very demanding
position: a Japanese samurai, a Chinese samurai, and a Jewish samurai.

The emperor asked the Japanese samurai to come in and demonstrate why he
should be the chief samurai. The Japanese samurai opened a matchbox, and
out popped a bumblebee. Whoosh! went his sword. The bumblebee dropped
dead, chopped in half.
The emperor exclaimed, "That is very impressive!

"The emperor then issued the same challenge to the Chinese samurai, to
come in and demonstrate why he should be chosen. The Chinese samurai
also opened a matchbox and out buzzed a fly. Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh,
whoosh! The fly dropped dead, chopped into four small pieces.The emperor
exclaimed, "That is very impressive!

"Now the emperor turned to the Jewish samurai, and asked him to
demonstrate why he should be the chief samurai. The Jewish Samurai
opened a matchbox, and out flew a gnat. His flashing sword went Whoosh!
But the gnat was still alive and flying around.The emperor, obviously
disappointed, said, "Very ambitious, but why is that gnat not dead?"The
Jewish Samurai just smiled and said,"Circumcision is not meant to kill."
