This reminds me of the the joke about the rabbi and the cardinal:

So a rabbi and his followers camp out on the Vatican property, and the Pope sends out a cardinal to tell them to leave. But the cardinal only speaks Italian and Latin, and the rabbi only speaks Yiddish and Hebrew, so they converse in sign language.

First the cardinal points upward.
The rabbi points downward.

The cardinal thinks about that, and then points a finger at the rabbi.
The rabbi points two fingers at the cardinal.

The cardinal thinks some more. He holds up his hand with the fingers all together.
The rabbi holds up a fist.

Hmmm. The cardinal takes out bread and wine.
The rabbi takes out an apple.

The cardinal goes back to the Pope and says, "I can't argue with him. The man is too brilliant. I had to let them stay. First I said "We are going to heaven." He said "Ah, but you might go to hell."
Then I said "We believe in one God." He said, "There is both good and evil in the world."
I said, "We are one people." He said, "But our community is more tightly-knit."
So I brought out the bread and wine, our most holy sacrament. And he brought out the apple, to remind me that we are all children of Adam. So I had to let them stay."

Meanwhile the rabbi goes back to his people to report.

"First he said, "You're going!" I said, "We're staying!"
Then he said "I'll poke out your eye!" I said, "I'll poke out both your eyes!"
Then he said, 'I'll slap your face!" I said, "I'll punch your nose!"
And then we had a little lunch and talked it over, and he decided we could stay."
