Brad and Jennifer try Mid-East diplomacy

Sigh. Evidently Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, and Danny DeVito will be traveling to Israel "in the belief that their charms will work magic on the Israeli-Arab conflict."

Uh, huh.

As Israeli sociologist Oz Almog (which, even I must confess, sounds a little bit like one of the names from Quest For Fire) notes:
Many Palestinians do not even have television sets. What is more, for the past three years here no one has listened to anyone, so what makes these people think they will listen to Danny DeVito?"

And I like all of them. Oh, well.

Thanks to Reasonblog for the pointer.
