Richard Gere has angst over supporting Israeli apartheid

So glad Richard Gere felt angst walking the red carpet in Israel after rejecting the appeals of BDS activists to honor the cultural boycott. Swell of him to make a statement against settlements & the military occupation–only to negate it by denouncing “violent extremist factions on either side.”

He’s been to Israel several times & after Yasser Arafat died made an embarrassing intervention into the 2005 Palestinian presidential election with a video urging Palestinians to vote in an election designed to make fools of them.

Somebody’s gotta tell Israel’s very own American gigolo that the jig is up, that you can’t make like you’re a human rights advocate if you can’t tell right from wrong or are shilling for apartheid behind a stink bomb
