Frank Costanza may have famously asked for “serenity now” on Seinfeld
George Costanza, also known as comedian Jason Alexander, plans to promote peace
between Israel and the Palestinian Authority at a conference in the Knesset
titled “The Knesset and the Nation: A debate in the aftermath of the Schalit
deal” on Monday afternoon.
Speaking on Channel 2 Sunday night, Alexander,
sporting a toupee that covered his trademark bald dome, said he felt the
excitement in the country since his arrival over the release of

Alexander is part of a delegation of more than 30 entrepreneurs
and entertainers from the US visiting Israel with the “One Voice”
campaign. The group will be hosted by MK Yoel Hasson (Kadima), the head
of the Knesset Caucus to Promote the Two-State Solution and Separation Between
Israel and the Palestinians.
“After we negotiated with extremists in
order to bring back Gilad Schalit, now is the time for balance and to begin
negotiations with moderates,” Hasson said. “In light of what is happening around
us in the Arab world recently, in which extremists have been strengthened,
Israel must be among those who stop this trend.”
The discussion will be
held in a round-table format allowing MKs and delegation members equal
opportunities to participate, which Hasson said was inspired by the social
protests this summer.
Government Services Minister Michael Eitan (Likud),
MK Doron Avital (Kadima), MK Marina Solodkin (Kadima), MK Eitan Cabel (Labor)
and other caucus members are expected to attend the event.
