The Fate of Jews in Greece

(Stumbled into a Dutch blog, and got the skit below )

Just got this and fell appart. Sorry for the title of the post.

Two Jewish men, Sid and Al, were sitting in a Greek restaurant in New York.
Sid asked Al:
-Are there any people of our faith born and raised in Greece?
Al replied:
-I don't know, let's ask our waiter.
When the waiter came by, Al asked him:
-Are there any Greek Jews?
The waiter said:
-I'll ask the cooks.
He returned from the kitchen in a few minutes and said:
-No sir, no Greek Jews.
Al wasn't really satisfied with that and asked:
-Are you absolutely sure?
The waiter, realizing he was dealing with 'xenoi' [foreigners] gave the
expected answer:
-I check again,- and went back into the kitchen.
While the waiter was away, Sid said:
-I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews in Greece, our people are scattered everywhere.
The waiter returned and said:
-The head cook say there is no Greek Jews.
Al asked once again:
-Are you certain? I can't believe there are no Greek Jews!
-Gamoto mou … I asked EVERYONE,- replied the exasperated waiter.
-All we have is Orange Jews, Apple Jews &Tomato Jews!

That's the fate of Jews with Greeks. In other places there would be Apricot, Strawbery and Banana Jews as well ;-))
