Israel & The United Nations

By Ronn Torossian

Israel & The United NationsIsrael has never had a good history with The United Nations – and Israel expects nothing from the UN.

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred some years ago at The United Nations. 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.”

Owning a Public Relations firm, sometimes the shortest answer is the clearest.
