Gearing for Failure
From the 'What the F...?' files:
Richard Gere, grey-haired actor, supporter of the Dalai Lama, vegan, alleged fornicator of gerbils, has decided to put his two cents worth in the recent Palestinian elections. Israeli-Palestinian peace lobby group One Voice asked the officer and the gentleman to endorse their cause. Which is well and good but no one in Palestine seems to know him that well. Added to the fact that some of Richard Gere's new friends may be seriously dodgy individuals. For example, Skeikh 'Funboy' Tamimi was overheard to have mentioned "The Jews are destined to be persecuted, humiliated and tortured forever, and it is a Muslim duty to see it that they reap their due. No petty arguments must be allowed to divide us. Where Hitler failed, we must succeed." Yikes.
Incidentally Abu Mazen won by 62.3% of the vote.
Take that Richard Gere!
