Hey, you might've read way below that I'm involved with OneVoice which has a real serious chance of creating a mass peace movement.
The big contribution of these guys has been to speak with tens of thousands of Palestinians and Israelis about what they really want… and everyone pretty much says they want peace with a reasonable deal. Unfortunately, the mass media never covers this.
A big election in Palestine is coming up in days, and the OneVoice guys are really helping out. For more info, check out their blog. Here's the gist:
The first-ever Get-Out-The-Vote Campaign in the Palestinian Authority, conducted by OneVoice-Palestine, is about to release a Public Service Announcement that will turn heads: it juxtaposes Sheikh Taysir al Tamimi, the Chief Palestinian Islamic Justice, and Father Attallah Hanna, the Patriarchite of the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem, with Richard Gere, the film star and humanitarian. They all encourage the Palestinian people to go out and vote. Sheikh Tamimi calls it a "religious and a national commandment" to participate in the elections.
The 1 minute ad will air on Palestinian National TV as well as on local Palestinian stations during the week prior to the Presidential elections.
