New 007 Did His Bit For International Relations On Munich Set

DANIEL CRAIG prepared for his role as superspy JAMES BOND by playing peacemaker on the set of new movie MUNICH.

The British actor achieved what world leaders have been attempting for years - bringing together Palestinians and Israelis.

Craig, who plays a member of a gang of terrorists hired to track and kill the Palestinians responsible for the deaths of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics, insisted actors who would otherwise be on opposite sides joined together for the duration of the movie.

He says, "It was very inspiring. We did one scene in Beirut and we had young Palestinian actors and young Israeli actors and we all had a drink together that night.

"It was cause for celebration in some strange way because both Israeli and Palestinian actors said they would never have had this chance to meet each other, even though they lived very close to each other."
