A friend emailed this story to me. I do not know the original source so cannot give credit.
As you know President Obama just returned from China . While he was there the premier of China gave him a gift of a beautiful bolt of cloth. When President Obama returned he wanted to have a suit made from the cloth so he called a tailor on London 's famous Seville Row to come over and make him a suit.
When the tailor arrived he measured the President and he measured the cloth and declared that he could not make him a suit. "There is not enough material" the tailor said.
The President was disappointed but after thinking about it for a while he called the French Ambassador and asked him if he could recommend a French tailor that could make him a suit. The Ambassador said that he would have one of France 's top men's designers flown over to make him a suit. When the French designer arrived he measured the President and he measured the cloth and declared that he could not make him a suit. "There is not enough material" the designer said.
President Obama was disappointed and happened to mention the problem to the Israeli Ambassador. The Ambassador told him not to worry. He knew of a tailor in Israel that could make him a suit from this fine cloth.
A few days later Yankel shows up at the White House. He measured the President and he measured the cloth and told him that not only would he make him a suit but a vest and an extra pair of pants to go with it. Stunned the President asked how this Israeli tailor could not only make him a suit but a vest and an extra pair of pants when the English and French tailors said that there was not enough material.
The Israeli tailor looked at President Obama and said, "Mr. President, in Israel you are not such a big man."
