Peace is no joke for Peres

By Simon Rocker, October 28, 2011

Israeli President Shimon Peres is never one to turn down a celebrity meeting and here he is with actor Jason Alexander, best known as the hapless George in Seinfeld.

Alexander was heading a delegation on behalf of the organisation One Voice, which promotes support for a two-state solution among grassroots Israelis and Palestinians.

Asked his advice on the peace process, he told the President not to give up, adding that he did his best to advance the two state-cause through "comedy and humour".

Step aside Quartet peace envoy Tony Blair… let's have Larry David.
