Saudi Arabian textbook shows Yoda at the UN

A doctored image of Yoda at the United Nations has somehow ended up in a history textbook.
The image, which shows the pint-sized Jedi master sitting next to King Faisal at the founding of the UN, was somehow included by mistake in a section of the book about the King's rule.

It turned out that the doctored image had been created by artist Abdullah al-Sheri as part of a series showing famous film characters inserted in to photographs of major events in Saudi history.

"I am the one who designed it, but I am not the one who put it in the book," he said.

Authorities are now scrambling to have copies of the textbook withdrawn from schools.

"The Ministry of Education regrets the inadvertent error," said education minister Ahmed al-Eissa.

"The ministry has began printing a corrected copy of the decision and withdrawing the previous versions, and has formed a legal committee to determine the source of the error and to take appropriate action."

Well, Jihad, Jedi, can't you see it? They both start with a J and have a D as last consonant.  They are clearly Jihad Knights!    One thing though: if both attended the founding of the UN, were they listening to Palpatine's speech in that picture?  I see the king was taking notes.

Guys, I just thought of something major. If my made up quote by Yoda is correct, Yoda is giving council to Saudi Arabia. That means the most powerful Jedi Master in the Galaxy is a hardcore anti-Semite Yoda wants to wipe Israel off the map! And he wants us buying oil from his home world, Dagobah!

Maybe they should replace politicians in videos with Darth Vader, including the voice. Especially with all the sabre-rattling going on in some speeches at the UN. Just imagine president Trump saying in Vaders voice: Kiiim jong Uuuun, I Aaam your Faatherrrr!
