Beck: You're not saying, Rabbi, that they intentionally are building the Tower of Babel.
Lapin: I think they are. I really do. I do believe and was told that the design of the headquarters of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, was -- designers were asked to make it resemble the Tower of Babel.
Beck: They said -- because we called -- we tried to verify, and what they say is, [laughs] they're just reflecting like the Coliseum.
Lapin: Yeah, that's what we want to build in Europe -- right? A place where Christians got fed to lions.
Too funny. Of course, as a matter of fact, as the Wikipedia entry notes (citing a press release): "The architects were inspired by Roman amphitheatres."
Meanwhile, it's always helpful to remember that if the Tower of Babel actually existed, no one has the remotest idea what it actually looked like.
