When speaking at the United Nations, a representative from Israel started by saying:
"Before I begin my speech, I want to tell you a story about Moses. One day when Moses wanted a bath he struck a large rock
and brought forth water. Then Moses removed his robe, put it on the rock, and entered the water.
When he finished his bath, he got out of the water and discovered his robe had vanished. A Palestinian had stolen his robe!"
Just then a Palestinian representative to the UN jumped up and shouted angrily, "You lie, Jew! Palestinians weren't there then."
The Israeli representative smiled and said, "Now that we have established that fact, I will begin my speech.
