IMEMC & Agencies
The Israeli newspaper Maariv, said that the American Actor Richard Gier decided to recruit himself in order to support the Geneva understandings.
The newspaper said that Gier never knew any information about the understandings until he met last year the former Minister of Justice in Israel, Yossi Belin, since then Belin was informing Gier about any progress concerning the initiative until they met two weeks ago in New York.
Gier said that he is ready to contribute in the peace efforts and that he intends to organize a ceremony at his place and invite celebrities in addition to Belin and Yasser Abed Rabbu, former PA Minister who will both be the guests of honor.
It is worth mentioning that The Geneva Initiative, prepared by MK Yossi Beilin and former PA minister Yasser Abed Rabbo, calls for a two state solution, sharing Jerusalem, and a solution to the refugee problem based on United Nations Security Council resolution 194 with certain limitations.
Gier is expected in the Middle East next month in order to meet several Israeli and Palestinian peace activists in an attempt to recruit support to the initiative.
