The following conversation between Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Bibi) and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) is fictitious.
The setting: Bibi and Abu Mazen happen to come to East Jerusalem and stumble into each other at the Colony Hotel. They approached to say hello and felt that a brief private meeting would do no harm. A few minutes later, they adjourned to a secure room in the hotel.
Abu Mazen: So how are you Bibi? I guess it is ok to call you Bibi!
Bibi: Of course, after all we are friends; how are you and how are your kids?
Abu Mazen: My kids? My kids are fine but let's not stretch it, since when did we become friends?
Bibi: Well you know Abu Mazen, we live side by --
Abu Mazen: Spare me all this hullabaloo. Neighbors, ha! We have a big problem with you my friend.
Bibi: What are you talking about, what problems?
Abu Mazen: What problems?? You must be ... only you ... damn, I don't know why we're talking!
Bibi: There is nothing wrong in talking, I am sure you agree that a little chat won't hurt.
Abu Mazen: Let's talk then; get out of my land, it's enough! Like it or not, we'll get rid of the occupation.
Bibi: Occupation? How can we occupy our own land?
Abu Maze: You are hilarious, Mr. Prime Minister. You deny everything, the truth, reality ... forget it.
Bibi: I know you're frustrated, I am frustrated too.
