A fly falls into a cup of coffee:

The Italian - throws away the cup and goes into a fit of anger.

The Frenchman - pulls out the fly and drinks the coffee.

The Chinese - eats the fly and throws out the coffee.

The Russian - drinks the coffee with the fly.

The Israeli - sells the coffee to the Frenchman, the fly to the Chinese, buys himself a new cup of coffee and uses the remaining money to invent a device that prevents flies from falling into coffee.

The Palestinian - blames the Israeli for having thrown the fly in his coffee, complains to the UN for this act of aggression, receives a loan from the European Union to buy a cup of coffee, uses the money to purchase explosives and then explodes himself in a cafeteria, where the Italian, French, Chinese, and the Russian, are all trying to explain to the Israeli that he should have given his cup of coffee to the unfortunate Palestinian.
