As it happened, Ali Khamenei, Benjamin Netanyahu, Vladimir Putin, and Recep Tayyip Erdogan were all walking in one of the UN's corridors.
To show that he is just an ordinary human being and a humble man, Khamenei shouted, 'Hey Vladimir, Tayyip, Bibi, come over here! Why don't we all sit down and chat about so many things we all have in common.'
Curious to hear what Ali has to say, they hesitantly start walking toward him, (he) who was already seated at a round table with a view of the East river.
Ali: How are you all doing, I hope you're feeling well.
Tayyip: Given the mess I am facing at home and abroad, you should know how I feel.
Vladimir: Oh I feel great; everything is fine with me. How about you, Bibi?
Bibi: What do you all care how I really feel?
Ali: We really don't. This a nice view, isn't it? The river, the beautiful buildings, you know, the UN should move to Tehran.
Bibi: Why on earth should the UN be relocated to Tehran?! What have you got to offer?
Ali: Well, Persia is the greatest civilization, we have lasted for thousands of years; like no other country, we are at the heart of the most strategic spot on earth. Tehran is the center of the universe, easily accessible from everywhere.
Tayyip: This is ridiculous! If the UN goes anywhere, it should be to Istanbul - after all, we inherited the riches and the culture of the great Ottoman Empire; we are also the bridge between east and west. And Istanbul - well there is no greater city in the world than Istanbul.
Bibi: Forget it, Jerusalem is the place where the UN should be located; it's the birth place of the great monolithic religions, and absolutely no other city can rival Jerusalem.
