Ken: Mr. Mayor, I understand you have quite a project going on here.
Barkat: That's right. We are creating a bible-themed garden, which will be a tourist park, adjacent to the City of David. This is the most important area in the world, and in the valley right there below us is where King's Garden actually was.
Ken: What about the 22 Arab homes that are sitting there now?
Barkat: They will be demolished.
Ken: Won't the Arabs object to that?
Barkat: They will benefit from it, because they can use the theme park.
Ken: Can they build homeless tents in the theme park?
Barkat: Of course not. The facts are wrong; those structures are illegal. They're sitting on an area that the world wants to be part of a city that's flourishing, that is clean, that is beautiful.
Ken: Those Arabs always seem to stand in the way of something the real 'world' wants to do, don't they? Why are the structures illegal?
Barkat: Everything in this area belongs to the Jews, because King David walked through there many years ago. Any non-Jewish homes are illegal by definition.
Ken: I guess the Arabs who built them should have been aware of King David, and all that sacred history. I wonder how they could have been so insensitive.
Barkat: It amazes me. We, on the other hand, are trying to be sensitive, here.
Ken: Boy, how times change. Put yourself in their shoes, and it kind of reminds you of something that happened to Jews in your own history, if you think about it.
Barkat: Get your facts right before you bash Israel, before you bash Jerusalem.
