From the department of understatement:
“As human beings, all of us wish to see a resolution,” he [Richard Branson] said about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Because if you don’t have a resolution, I think something ghastly could happen one day…
One day? Try TODAY. Wake up Mr. B., the ‘ghastly’ happens every day. You just don’t have an opportunity to see it. Maybe you should try to spend a day in Gaza or waiting at a checkpoint.
But I should at least give Branson credit for traveling to Israel and the West Bank with the Elders (which includes Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter, and Mary Robinson among others) and for funding their efforts.
