getting the Syrian Govt. To do something
Abdullah was in jail in Damascus and he receives a letter from his wife which read: "Dear Husband, I have decided to plant some lettuce in the back garden. When is the best time to plant them?" Abdullah, knowing that the prison guards read all mail, replied in a letter: "Dear Wife, whatever you do, do not touch the back garden. That is where I hid all my papers." A week or so later, he received another letter from his wife: "Dear Husband, You wouldn't believe what happened, some men came with shovels to the house, and dug up all the back garden." Abdullah wrote another letter back: "Dear wife, now is the best time to plant the lettuce."
