Hollywood is far from the most conservative or pro-Israeli city in the world but now, over 150 showbiz pros have signed on to a letter denouncing Hamas and supporting Israel.
With the politically correct crowd lashing out at Israel for their “mistreatment” of Hamas and the Palestinians, many are shocked to see so many names from Hollywood on the list.
Here is the letter:
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.
Here’s some of the notable names:
Tom Arnold, Roseanne Barr, Ethan Cohen, Joel Cohen, Minnie Driver, Doug Ellin, Benji Madden, Joel Madden, Bill Maher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Aaron Sorkin, Sylvester Stallone and many, many more!
