Inigo Montoya in East Jerusalem
Write your own caption for this photo
Mandy Patinkin, the (Jewish) actor whose most famous role is in 1987’s The Princess Bride, is a board member of the liberal group Americans for Peace Now. And currently, according to an APN spokesperson, he’s on a tour of East Jerusalem organized by the related Israeli organization Peace Now. Patinkin, Claire Danes, and other cast members of the Showtime series Homeland are in Israel to do some filming—appropriate, given that Homeland is based on the Israeli series Halufim (Prisoners of War).
Anyway: Twitter has already provided variants on, “My name is Inigo Montoya. You stole my neighborhood. Give it back.” What do you guys have?

We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.
