A clever example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly.

The 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 take a bath!” Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water.
When he got out he found, his clothes had vanished. Moses assumed a Palestinian was the obvious culprit!
The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and shouted, “What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren’t there then.”

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