Hollywood himbo Richard Gere has already announced himself as a most ungracious guest of this country. And in keeping with his biased view of the conflict, he took a tour of Hebron with Israel-bashing group Breaking the Silence. This is what the cameras caught him saying.
“It’s exactly what the old south was in America. Blacks knew where they could and couldn’t go and it was well-understood. You didn’t cross it or you would’ve gotten your head beaten or you’d get lynched.”
A very interesting choice of words, given the only people who have had their heads beaten in and been lynched here are Jews who had the misfortune of going in to palestinian controlled territory.
P.S Richard, King David – who you played in a movie, – was anointed King of Israel in Hebron, and reigned there for seven years. Yet you believe Jews do not belong there?
