With all these good intentioners involved, we could have ended up at war with Mars:
Israel this week issued a formal rejection of a recent offer by former US President Jimmy Carter and former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to mediate a ceasefire between the Jewish state and the Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip.
It’s not just President Rabbit and Truly, Madly, Deeply Concerned Kofi who wanted in on this. Dizzy Desmond and The Pertayter Lady also put their hands up:
Carter and Annan sent their proposal to Israel several weeks ago, and noted that South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former Irish President Mary Robinson would also be part of the mediation team.
Israel probably rejected the proposal out of sympathy to the Gazans. They’re tough, but they’re not unfair.
