Want to get out the vote in the occupied territories? What better way could one find than the air a few public service announcements by delivered by Richard Gere.
It sounds weird, but I must admit that I have often wanted to introduce myself in the manner Gere uses in his televised ad:
“Hi, I’m Richard Gere and I’m speaking for the entire world.”
The response from some has been less than stellar. One Gaza factory worker explained:
“I don’t even know who the candidates are other than Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), let alone this Gere. We don’t need the Americans’ intervention. We know who to elect. Not like them — they elected a moron.”
