Appeal by Pretty Woman Star Perplexes Palestinians

Jan 6, 10:08 AM (ET)

RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - He's been a prostitute's rich beau, an officer, a gentleman and a gigolo, but Palestinians can't fathom Richard Gere's latest incarnation as a cheerleader for their elections this weekend.

Well known for his vocal support of Tibet's Dalai Lama and celebrated for his captivating good looks, Gere urged Palestinians in a television commercial broadcast ahead of Sunday's poll in the West Bank and Gaza to get out to vote for a new president to succeed Yasser Arafat, who died in November.

"Hi, I'm Richard Gere and I'm speaking for the entire world. We're with you during this election time. It's really important. Get out and vote," Gere said in the advertisement.

But many voters, already struggling with the labyrinthine politics of the West Bank and Gaza, say they have never heard of the actor who swept Debra Winger off her feet as a dashing Navy officer in the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman and were even less interested when they were told he's an American.

"I don't even know who the candidates are other than Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), let alone this Gere," Gaza soap factory worker Manar an-Najar told Reuters on Wednesday.

"We don't need the Americans' intervention. We know who to elect. Not like them -- they elected a moron." (:lol:)

Arafat's death has stirred international hopes of ending more than four years of Middle East violence. Moderate Fatah faction candidate Mahmoud Abbas is the front-runner to succeed him in the first Palestinian election since 1996.

The Gere spot, sponsored by grassroots Israeli-Palestinian peace lobby One Voice, recalled ads put out by Hollywood notables to support Democratic candidate Sen. John Kerry in November's U.S. elections. He lost to President Bush.

You're pretty good at posting things that have nothing to do with the original post.

um WTF has that got to do with anything?
secondly im sure many enviro-nuts might blame climate change for this catastrophe but obviously it was not directly cause by bush not signing the kyoto protocol as there have always been tsunamis throughout history, so that is just ludicrous. That is not to say that Bush is an extremely dumb and greedy fuck for not signing the Kyoto protocol.

If we really want humanity to survive in the future then there must be much more done than just complying with the Kyoto treaty and bush not even signing it is really a display of the importance placed on money compared to the preservation of our species and entire planet.

But back to my original point, WTF has this got to do with ANYTHING in the original post?

It doesn't, but as a note, why would global warming have anything to do with affecting the movement of the earth's tetonic plates? These plates have been moving for hundreds of millions of years, whether or not global warming is taking place earthquakes and tsunamis would continue to happen.
