A Speech at the United Nations that made world community smile

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

A representative from Palestine began: 'Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses. When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath!'

He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. An Israeli had stolen them.'

The Israeli representative jumped up furiously and shouted: 'What are you talking about? The Israeli weren't there then.'

The Palestinian representative smiled and said: 'And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.'

Are you actually kidding? Substitute "Israeli” for “Palestinian” and vice verse, and you might find it makes a lot more sense. Moses was a descendent of Jacob (aka. Israel). “An Israeli stole them” does not even follow logical thought. And if the Israeli’s then said, “We were not even there then!” that would be a contradiction in terms…Moses was an Israeli…so yes, Israelis were there then!

There has never been a Palestinian state, and there has never been a Palestinian people. The land was renamed Palestine by the Romans when they finally destroyed Israel in the first century, to break the Jewish peoples’ thousand years of ties to that land. Those who call themselves Palestinians today are Arabs, like those living in Jordan (most of the rest of the land called the “Palestinian mandate” prior to WWII).
Don’t use jokes to build your understanding of history. Get your understanding of history...from history.
