Richard Gere's Message is Lost on Palestinians

Years ago on the MTV Video Music Awards, host Jon Lovitz made an impassioned speech about why the world should listen to him on major geopolitical issues. "I'm an ACTOR," Lovitz said, "I've had extensive ACTING training, which gives me the right to speak to the world on big, important things."

Richard Gere, longtime Tibetan rights activist, recently made a television spot imploring Palestinians to get to the polls in their upcoming election. And at least one Palestinian couldn't care less.
