Hi, I'm Richard Gere!

A video image shows U.S. actor Richard Gere showing his support in a television advert for a pro-peace group to help persuade Palestinians to vote in their upcoming presidential elections is this grab taken January 4, 2005."Hi, I'm Richard Gere and I'm speaking for the entire world. We're with you during this election time. It's really important. Get out and vote," Source: Reuters

Some welcome and appreciate Gere's support, considering his participation a great gesture that will encourage many Palestinians to take part in the elections. While some others look at it as another "American" attempt to interfere in their own actions and interests!
I personally believe all Palestinians should play a positive role in their own elections regardless of the occupation and suffering. They should let nothing get in their way.
Good Luck Palestine, and hold on Palestinians!
