An ingenious example of speech and politics

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.'

Salam to all
if you happen to post on the google search the title of " An ingenious example....etc" you will come up with several sites that mention this story but with the Israeli being the one to tell the story!!... dated in 2007.
i wonder if there is a real reference to that story or is it just a 'story'?
thankyou

It was the Israeli UN representative who caught out the Palestinian UN representative. Think about it, why was Moses there if "there were no Israelites there at the time" And you wonder why people think Arabs are stupid???
