Today I Received An Email That Made Me Ummm, Smile. Maybe It Will Do the Same For You

Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

A representative from Israel 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. A Palestinian
had stolen them.'

The Palestinian representative jumped up furiously and shouted,

'What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then.'

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