HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, NOVEMBER 06, 2009 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha -- Call 407-657-9405 or 407-834-8787 Pakistan, our "friend"... Well maybe they are be- coming our "friend" for real? Ya think? At least Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thinks so. This came from the Associated Press over the Internet: Offering sympathy for victims of Wednesday's [Oct. 28] terrorist bombing, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton praised Pakistan's offensive against extremists and pledged U.S. support at a critical point in the country's history. "Pakistan is in the midst of a struggle against tenacious and brutal extremist groups who kill innocent people and U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton terrorize communities," she told a news conference at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, just hours after a car bomb killed more than 90 people and wounded more than 200 ata Peshawar market, about a three- hour drive from the capital. "I want you to know this fight is not Pakistan's alone," Clinton said. "These extremists are committed to destroying what is dear to us as much as they are committed to destroying that which is dear to you and to all people. So this is our struggle as well." Appearing with her, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the violence would not break his government's will to fight back. "The resolve anddetermina- tion will not be shaken/' Qureshi said. "People are carrying out such heinous crimes.., they want to shake our resolve. I want to address them: We will not buckle. We will fight you. We will fight you because we want peace and stability in Pakistan." Clinton said her visit, the first since she became secretary of state, was designed to chip away at anti-Americanism in this predominantly Muslim nation and to offer U.S. support for the government's assault on extremism. Qureshi praised her for coming, saying, "This visit of yours will build bridges' between Pakistanis andAmericans. This visit is well-timed." Clinton said the Obama administration intends to do more to support Pakistan on a wide range of issues, including economic development, energy generation, education and the environment. She suggested that the administration of former President George W. Bush had focused too nar- rowly on Pakistan's value as an ally in the war on terrorism. neglecting other aspects of the relationship. "We are turning the page on what has been for the past several years primarily a secUrity, anti-terrorist agenda, she told reporters on the flight from Washington. Anti-terrorism "remains a very high priority, but we also recognize that it's imperative that we broaden our engagement with Pakistan." In an example of the broader efforts. Clinton announced that the U.S. would contribute $125 million to a project to increase Pakistan's electrical output and improve its energy efficiency. (And we are running out of Medicare and Social Security money here?) One of the most sensitive issues facing Clinton is Pakistan's unexpectedly negative response to congressional passage of a bill providing $7.5 billion over five years for economic and social programs in Pakistan. The Pakistani military was especially critical, saying the bill amounted to U.S. meddling in Pakistan's internal affairs. Clinton arranged her three-day visit to get maximum public exposure. She planned to meet with students, business leaders, opposition figures and others. "It is fair to say there have been a lot of misconceptions about what the United States intends for our relationship with Pakistan," Clinton told reporters on her overnight flight, adding, "It is unfortunate there are those who question our motives. I want to clear the air." I love jewelry... Doesn't everybody? I re- ceived this e-mail from NANCY LUDIN of The Jewish Pavilion: GAY HARRISON of Hand- crafted Couture Jewelry, is one of the sponsors of The Jewish Pavilion's fashion show at Neiman Marcus at The Mall of Millennia on Nov. 12 at 10:30 a.m. Gay is responsible for put- ting together the "Pearls of the Pavilion" membership appeal, an effort to gain generous donors for the Jew- ish Pavilion. Gay's beautiful jewelry will be on display at Gay Harrison the next Jewish Pavilion event entitled "JP Connections" on Dec. 2. Gay found the art of designing jewelry therapeutic in 2002 after grieving the loss of her mother. She began her career by utilizing her mother's vintage beads to recreate new pieces for her daughter's bat mitzvah. Gay is hands on with every element of her collection, from research and development to design and delivery. The business is philanthropically driven to honor her mother's memory. She has been very generous to the Jewish Pavilion over thepyears and the charity is very grateful for her generosity and talent. Judy Procell (center with scarf) surrounded by walkers in her honor I Can hardly wait for a cure... Here is an e-mail from our own JUDY I~ROCELL, abreast cancer survivor: "Two weeks ago on a Sunday morning several people from Temple Shir Shalom of Oviedo participated in the 'Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure' Breast Cancer event. It was a crisp, clear morning and we gathered for 'Team Judy Procell' (led by Jessica Meyers) at the UCF Campus/ Stadium. We had husbands, mothers, sisters, daughters/sons and friends all walk for this cause. We walked to raise money, awareness and spirits. We were joined by thousands of others this day. The excitement and energy was intoxicating. We were making a difference. So, all of October you have seen pink ribbons for Breast Cancer everywhere, right? That's because breast cancer is everywhere! It's at the bank; the grocery store: the car dealership; it's at the neighborhood block party; and at your Temple. It is everywhere. Did you know that in the U.S. one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, and one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes! Breast cancer affects more than just the patient...friends and family need support too. (Cancer is serious business. Judy was recovering from surgery less than 36 hours prior to the walk and was being pushed in a wheelchair. We at Heritage salute her courage and wish her a speedy and complete recovery.) Speaking of cancer and family... Our own Barbara Klein died of Leukemia on Friday. She was a special lady, wife, mother and grandmother. If you would like to donate to the Leukemia Foundation, here is the address: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Donor Services, P.O. Box 4072, Pittsfield, MA 01202. If ever I needed a joke, it's now... T;red of constantly being broke and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife with himself as the beneficiary, and then arranging to have her killed. A 'friend of a friend! put him in touch with a nefarious dark-side underworld figure, who went by the name of'Artie.' Artie then explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was $5,000. The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money. Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened his wallet, displaying the single dollar bill that rested inside. Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, and reluctantly agreed to accept the d()ilar as down payment for the dirty deed. A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Super WalMart store. There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands and as the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath and slumped to the floor the manager of the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene. Unwilling to leave any living witnesses behind, oi' Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well. However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the hidden security cameras and observed by the store's security guard, who immediately called the police. Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the store. Under intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid plan/including his unusual fi- nancial arrangements with the hapless husband who was also quickly arrested. The next day in the newspaper, the headline declared... 'ARTIE CHOKES TWO FOR ONE DOLLARAT WALMART!' (A groaner for sure. ALAN ROCK is responsible for this joke.
