He picks it up, rubs it, and–sure enough–a genie pops out.
The genie says to the old man, “I will grant you anything you want.”
The old man pulls a map out of his back pocket and points to the Middle East.
“You see this? I would like peace in the Middle East between Israelis and Palestinians.”
The genie looks at the map and says to the man, “I’ve been stuck in a lamp for centuries; you expect me to pull that off right out of the chute? This area has been at war for thousands of years. I’m a genie, I’m not God. I’m afraid it simply cannot be done, sir.
“I’ll have to ask you to make another wish, and this time try to be reasonable, please.”
The Jewish man thinks for a moment, then responds: “I would like my wife to blow me one more time.”
The genie lets out a long sigh and says, “Let me see the map again.”
