In this article from the UK Telegraph, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Danny Devito have decided to do what several presidents and thousands of negotiators have failed to do. They want to bring peace to the middle east.
“The past few years of conflict mean that yet another generation of Israelis and Palestinians will grow up in hatred,” reads a statement from Pitt and Aniston. “We cannot allow that to happen.”
Again, this is the arrogance of Hollywood. Since they can act and show their collective body parts in the movies, they feel they can stop a conflict that has gone on for fifty years. Since they’re such huge stars, no one in Hollywood has the guts to call these people idiots.
I think we should encourage this behavior. I would be willing to donate money to send all three of these people to the Middle East. Since a large number of people in the Middle East don’t even know who they are, we should have a large, ticker-tape parade right down the Gaza strip. Each of them can sit in Cadillac convertables and wave to the “ordinary folk”. I would just ask them to televise the whole thing so I can see their faces when that rocket launched grenade lands in Jennifer’s lap.
