  • Poll of the Week: Which “Seinfeld” character could help the Israelis and Palestinians make peace?

    Jason Alexander aka George Costanza met in Jerusalem this week with Israeli President Shimon Peres (he also visited with Palestinian officials in Ramalah). Alexander was representing the organization OneVoice, which seeks to help reach a two-state solution by training “Israeli and Palestinian youth in leadership skills, non-violent activism, and democratic principles.”

I too, through comedy and humor, try to contribute my part by advancing the idea of two states for two people.
