The new face of the America in Palestine is .... Richard Gere ?!?!? That's right, folks, it is the star of such cinematic masterpieces Runaway Bride and Shall We Dance, is in a new commercial airing in Palestine (I really am not lying, here's proof) where he gets to utter the phrase everyone would love to say:
"Hi, I'm Richard Gere and I'm speaking for the entire world"
Like hell he is. The only guy who seems to have any ounce of sanity left is Gaza soap factory worker Manar an-Najar
who was quoted by Reuters
as saying, "I don't even know who the candidates are other than Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), let alone this Gere."
When he found out Gere
was, in fact, an American, he said: "We don't need the Americans' intervention. We know who to elect. Not like them -- they elected a moron."
