39. sigh... such a poor misquote of the far more articulate Abba Eban.
Speaking before the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, the prime minister noted that "the UN can also adopt a resolution that the world is flat."

The actual quote:

If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions.

-Abba Eban
