One Day in Ramallah


PLO Arab President Mahmoud Abbas meets British actor Ben Kingsley


Abbas: I really admire what you are doing.

Kingsley: Thank you.

Abbas: She was a great hero.

Kingsley: He was a great hero.

Abbas: Huh? Aren’t you working on a play about our beloved martyr Rachel Corrie?

Kingsley: No. I think you have me confused with my colleague Alan Rickman. I am Ben Kingsley. You may know me from the Holocaust movie Schindler’s List?

Abbas: Holocaust? What’s that?

Kingsley: I am here for the screening of Gandhi, and to promote non-violence among your people.

Abbas: I see. Abdul, will you kindly show our guest the door?
