Why is George Costanza (Jason Alexander) teaming with a terrorist in today’s Palestinian elections? Ditto for Mr. Angelina Jolie a/k/a Brad Pitt.
It’s bad enough that OUR TAX DOLLARS are funding terrorist group Fatah’s (and it’s Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade’s) campaign to the tune of $2 million. But Costanza?
Yes. Both Costanza and Pitt are on the board of One Voice, a far-left group, that produced ads featuring Palestinian terrorist Sheikh Taysir Al-Tamimi, which are running on Palestinian Authority TV today. The ads urge voting in the elections between terrorist group HAMAS and terrorist group Fatah. Along with Costanza and Pitt, Tamimi is also a One Voice board member.
Which George Costanza is More Disgusting . . .
As I wrote previously, Richard Gere proved he truly is an “American Gigolo,” last year, when he appeared with terrorist Al-Tamimi in similar ads for last year’s Palestinian elections. (Could have been called “A Terrorist Officer and a Gerbilman.”)
To recap who Taysir Al-Tamimi is, here is an excerpt of what I wrote on the man who Costanza’s and Pitt’s One Voice claims is a voice of “moderation”:
“Palestine’s” Islamo-Fascist Enforcer
There’s Al-Tamimi, the Palestinian Authority’s Chief of Judges and chairman of its Islamic law high council.
He uttered these words: “Islam is escalating and cannot be resisted. I pray that Allah may tear apart America just as the Soviet Union was torn apart.”
As the chief Palestinian judge and Muslim cleric, Al-Tamimi frequently appears on Palestinian Authority Television praising homicide bombers and spreading anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and fatwas.
In 1994, Al-Tamimi said, “The Jews are destined to be persecuted, humiliated, and tortured forever, and it is a Muslim duty to see to it that they reap their due. No petty arguments must be allowed to divide us. Where Hitler failed, we must succeed.”
In August 2003, Al-Tamimi, a personal friend of Yasser Arafat (who appointed him Chief Islamic Judge), was arrested for inciting terrorism. Al-Tamimi’s extremist sermons are well-known for urging attacks on Israel and calling upon Arab nations to wage war. In March 2000, Al-Tamimi delivered a hate speech during the Pope’s visit to Jerusalem, accusing Israel of “genocide” and “strangling Jerusalem.” He called on Christians to join Muslims in a jihad to oust Jews from all of Israel.
In a recent Palestinian Authority appearance, Al-Tamimi defamed late Israeli Prime Minster Golda Meir, claiming she and the Israelis conspired to burn down the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He decreed Jews have no right to pray at the “Cave of the Patriarchs,” (where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are buried), one of the holiest of Jewish sites, which Al-Tamimi claims is a mosque. “Jews have no right to claim any bond or connection . . . . Jews are foreign interlopers.”
Not only are Costanza and Pitt board members of One Voice (Pitt’s also still listed as “Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston”–no word on who got this absurd group in the divorce settlement), but Costanza appeared on FOX News’ “O’Reilly Factor” pimping One Voice and defended his group’s alliance with Al-Tamimi in a debate with me on the Howard Stern Show (scroll to the bottom here), saying he believes in working with terrorists to get a “solution.”
Costanza’s priorities are striking: He pulled out of doing KFC ads when PUTA (People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals and humans) objected, but supporting terrorists–he won’t back down from that. Chickens, yes; innocent civilians, no.
Is Bin Laden next in George Costanza Islamic terror love-fests? Now THAT would be an interesting episode of “Bin Ladenfeld.” Regardless, Jason Alexander’s attraction to Terrorist-in-Chief Taysir Al-Tamimi should be career-ending.
He should stick to “breaking a leg” instead of legitimizing the taking of innocent peoples’ limbs and lives.
