Humor: Scientific Achievements Of Ancient Israel

A friend passed this on to me:
After digging to a depth of 100 metres last year, Russian scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network one thousand years ago.

So, not to be outdone,in the weeks that followed, American scientists dug 200 metres and headlines in the US papers read: "US scientists have found traces of 2000 year old optical fibers, and have concluded that their ancestors already had advanced high-tech digital telephone 1000 years earlier than the Russians."

One week later, the Israeli newspapers reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 500 metres, Israeli scientists have found absolutely nothing. They have concluded that 3000 years ago, their ancestors were already using wireless technology.
