A bit of good news a long time coming...


Falling Star Power? Obama's Hollywood Base Choosing Israel Over New Iran/Obama Power Couple

231 actors israel 940
It's not surprising that it happened but it's very surprising that it took as long as it did, particularly given the large Jewish population in Hollywood. One would have expected that they would have come to the reality that Obama is the enemy closer to the time the rest of us figured it out, seven or eight years ago.
The important thing is that 190 Hollywood celebrities, including some big names, have finally come to their senses and signed a letter of support for Israel and in opposition to Hamas. Included in signatories are Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Kelsey Grammer, Bill Maher, Seth Rogan, Jon Lovitz and David Zucker. The letter, which was posted originally at Creative Community For Peace, the sponsoring organization, is below, followed by a complete list of the stars who signed it.
We, the undersigned, are saddened by the devastating loss of life endured by Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza. We are pained by the suffering on both sides of the conflict and hope for a solution that brings peace to the region.
While we stand firm in our commitment to peace and justice, we must also stand firm against ideologies of hatred and genocide which are reflected in Hamas' charter, Article 7 of which reads, "There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!" The son of a Hamas founder has also commented about the true nature of Hamas.
Hamas cannot be allowed to rain rockets on Israeli cities, nor can it be allowed to hold its own people hostage. Hospitals are for healing, not for hiding weapons. Schools are for learning, not for launching missiles. Children are our hope, not our human shields.
We join together in support of the democratic values we all cherish and in the hope that the healing and transformative power of the arts can be used to build bridges of peace.

The Hollywood stars adding their names to the list of those in support of Israel are:
Orly Adelson, Marty Adelstein, Dan Adler, Lou Adler, Michael Adler, Dan Aloni, Avi Arad, Tom Arnold, Jeff Astrof, Craig Balsam, Gary Barber, Roseanne Barr, Jason Barrett, Elana Barry, Jonathan Baruch, Aaron Bay-Schuck, Lainie Sorkin Becky, Lawrence Bender, PeterBenedek, Steven Bensusan, Raphael Berko, Adam Berkowitz, Greg Berlanti, Jordan Berliant, Mayim Bialik, Joshua P Binder, Todd Black, Michael Borkow, David Boxerbaum, Scooter Braun, Dan Brecher, Eric Brooks, David Broza, Dan Bucatinsky, Naomi Bulochnikov, David Byrnes, David Caspe, Omri Casspi, Josh Charles, Liza Chasin, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Cynthia Cidre, Neil Cloud, Ayala Cohen, Etan Cohen, Joe Cohen, Jim Cooperman, Charlie Corwin, Marc Dauer, Robert Davi, Craig David, Douglas J Davis, Stephen Davis, Donald De Line, Matt DelPiano, Josh Deutsch, Kurt Deutsch, David Diamond, Leonard Dick, David Draiman, Minnie Driver, Jack Dytman, Lee Eisenberg, Doug Ellin, Diane English, Dan Erlij, Ron Fair, Erik Feig, Dave Feldman, James Feldman, Patti Felker, Erica Forster, Gary Foster, Doug Frank, Bryan J.

The Gift of a Leader (Israel v Hamas)

During a recent cease-fire, the leader of the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas, Khaled Mashal, sent a gift to the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, in an elaborate box with a note.
After having the box checked for safety reasons, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opened the box and saw that the content was human feces.
He opened the note, handwritten in Arabic by Mr. Mashal, which said, "For you and the proud people of the Zionist Entity."
Mr. Netanyahu, literate in Arabic, pondered the note and decided how best to reciprocate.
He quickly did so by sending the Hamas leader a very pretty package with a personal note.
Mr. Mashal and the other leaders of Hamas were very surprised to receive the parcel and opened it very carefully suspecting that it might contain a bomb. But to their surprise they found it contained a tiny computer chip.
The chip was rechargeable with solar energy, had a 1.8 terabyte memory and could output a 3D hologram display capable of functioning in any type of cellular phone, tablet or laptop.
It was one of the world's most advanced technologies, with a tiny label "Invented and produced in Israel."
Mr. Netanyahu's note, personally handwritten in Arabic, Hebrew, French, and English, stated very courteously..."Every leader can only give the best his people can produce."
