  • 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.”
    Here’s the official version from the president’s office:
    President Peres turned to Jason Alexander with a smile and said jockingly, please allow me to call you George. He then said: “George, on the show you and Jerry Seinfeld conduct yourselves like two different states – each of you has a differing world view and creative thoughts. What is your advice to advance the peace process in the Middle East?”
    Alexander answered the President by saying that it is correct that he and Jerry Seinfeld represent two different worlds and it is extremely difficult to have a relationship like this, but my advice to you is not to give up. Even with the disappointments it is important to continue in the difficult effort of advancing peace which is so important. I too, through comedy and humor, try to contribute my part by advancing the idea of two states for two people.
