Geraldo considered a Knesset run
http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | (KRT)
Geraldo Rivera in the Knesset? Oy vey.
Rivera says he was ready to relocate to Israel a few years ago and run for a seat in the Knesset in order to advance his strong views on the Palestinian situation.
Born in Brooklyn to a Jewish mother, Lilly Friedman, and a Catholic, Puerto Rican father, Cruz Rivera, Rivera was raised "mostly Jewish" and was a bar mitzvah, he says.
Israel's occupation of the West Bank "is bull," in Rivera's view, and it "dehumanizes" the Palestinians. "I want peace between Jews and Palestinians, based on equality between the countries."
Rivera says he went so far as to look for an apartment in Israel before his then-fiancee, Erica Levy, and her father put the kibosh on any move to the violence-plagued country.
"I would die for Israel," says Rivera, 62, whose syndicated news show, "Geraldo at Large,'' launched in October. "Jews have been persecuted for five millennia. We can't be persecutors. We have to take a chance for peace."
As for the controversial Israeli wall, "I don't even mind it," he says. "There has to be a border. It might even be better. Let the people cool off for a couple of decades."
Rivera's not the cooling-off type. Had he made it to the Knesset, "I'd be punching out everybody every day."
