Israeli Archaeological Discovery

	A team of archaeologists were excavating in Israel when they came
	upon a cave.  Written on the wall of the cave were the following 
	symbols in order of appearance.

	1. A dog
	2. A donkey
	3. A shovel
	4. A fish
	5. A Star of David

	They decided that this was a unique find and the writings were at
	Least more than three thousand years old. They chopped out the piece
	of stone and had it brought to the museum where archaeologists from
	all over the world came to study the ancient symbols. 

	They held a huge meeting after months of conferences to discuss what
	they could agree was the meaning of the markings. 

	The President of their Society stood up and pointed at the first
	drawing and said, "This looks like a dog. We can judge that this was a
	highly intelligent race as they knew how to have animals for
	companionship. To prove this statement you can see that the next symbol
	resembles a donkey, so, they were even smart enough to have animals help
	them till the soil. 

	The next drawing looks like a shovel of some sort, which means they
	even had tools to help them.  Even further proof of their high
	intelligence is the fish which means that that they had a famine 
	that hit the earth whereby the food didn't grow, they would take to 
	the sea for food. 
	The last symbol appears to be the Star of David which means they were
	evidently Hebrews." The audience applauded enthusiastically and the
	President smiled and said, "I'm glad to see that you are all in full
	agreement with our interpretations." 

	Suddenly a little old Jewish man stood up in the back of the room and
	said, "I object to every word. The explanation of what the writings say is
	quite simple. First of all, everyone knows that Hebrews don't read from
	left to right, but from right to left......
	Now, look again..... It now says :
