Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas sat down for a discussion on a Palestinian State but Netanyahu wanted to tell a story first.
He spoke, “Moses was hot, so he went to the Jordan, took off and folded his clothes and went for a swim. When he got out, his clothes were gone. He stopped a passing Israelite and asked if he had seen his clothes. The Israelite said, ‘A Palestinian stole them.’…”
Mahmoud interrupted, “Wait! There were no Palestinians in Moses’ day!”
Netanyahu said, “OK, now that that’s out of the way, what did you want to talk about?”
That’s it, all I had to say. You can’t hit a home run every time, but even a foul tip can be someone’s take home prize.
