Playwright and actor Wallace Shawn, best known for his role as Vizzini in The Princess Bride, translated an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) ad that blamed Palestinians for Israel’s mass slaughter of Gazan children. The ad featured and endorsed a statement from the former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir which said, “We cannot forgive them [the Arabs] from forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with [them] when they love their children more than they hate us.”

Shawn comments that “Anyone who learns more about what has happened can’t help but realize that the anger of the Palestinians cannot be ended by killing their children.”
