Found on the WeLL, filed under the lighter side of terrorism

 The coach had put together the perfect team for the Oakland Raiders.
 The only thing missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the
 colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't
 find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl victory.

  Then one night, while watching CNN, he saw a war-zone scene in
 Afghanistan. In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan
 Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand- grenade
 straight into a window from 80 yards away. Then he threw another
 grenade  from 50 yards down a chimney, and then hit a passing car going
 80 miles per hour.

  �I've got to get this guy!" coach said to himself. "He has the
 perfect arm!" So, he brings the young Afghan to the States and teaches
 him the great game of football ..... and sure enough the Raiders go on
 to win the Super Bowl.

  The young Afghan is hailed as a hero of football, and when the Coach
 asks him what he wants, all the young man wants to do is call his

  "Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

 "I don't want to talk to you," the old Muslim woman says. "You
 deserted us. You are not my son!"

 "Mother, I don't think you understand," pleads the son, "I've just won
 the greatest sporting event in the world!"

 "No! Let me tell you," his mother retorts, "at this very moment there
 are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your
 two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I
 have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get assaulted!"
 The old lady pauses, then tearfully says, "I will never forgive you for
 making us move to Oakland!"
