This joke goes back to when Ariel Sharon was the Defense Minister of Israel and Yassir Arafat was the Palestine leader.

One day Mr. Sharon and Mr. Arafat decided to have a meeting to try and decide borders and boundaries of Israel/Palestine.

As they sat down and started talking, Ariel Sharon said it was a custom in his land to tell a story before you start a meeting of this nature. Arafat agreed and listened to the story.

Ariel Sharon started the story with Joshua as they were about to reach the Promised Land. Joshua decided to take a bath in a pool of clear water. When he was done swimming he got out of the water naked and looked for his clothes. They were missing. Caleb was there with him and said, Joshua a Palestinian stole your clothes!

At this point in the story Yassir Arafat jumped up and said REDUCULOUS!!! This is nonsense. There were not even any Palestinian’s here in those days! How dare you accuse us of stealing?

After this, with a grin Ariel Sharon said …Yes, now that that has been established. Let’s start our talk on who has the rights to the land.
