Israeli policitican or Star Wars Character?

Now for die hards such as yourself, this is probably easy. But try this on your friends and family. This would be a great peice for Jay Leno, etc. to see if the people on the street can distiguish the two. It has just always struck me that the names of Israeli politicians sound very similar to the types of names that George Lucas gives to his characters, because both sound incredibly foreign to me, yet just close enough to English names to let you know the alphabet is the same.

Binyamin Netanyahu
Chancellor Palpatine
Mace Windu
Reuven Rivlin
Bail Organa
Yitzhak Ben-Zvi
Count Dooku
Zalman Shazar
Tion Medon
Moshe Sharett
Luminara Unduli
Ehud Barak
Barriss Offee
Asajj Ventress
Yitzhak Rabin
Cliegg Lars
Qui-Gon Jinn

You should take out the obvious ones like Chancellor Palpatine, Mace Windu, and Count Dooku and put a few of the more obscure characters like Nute Gunray, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Aayla Secura, and Mas Amedda. Then you might really stump some people.

Maybe with Star Wars fans, but to the typical person walking down the street, I don't think it would matter.

I don't think anyone typical posts in a Star Wars Forum.
