100 Spanish celebrities accuse Israel of genocide in Gaza

100 Spanish celebrities accuse Israel of genocide in Gaza July 29, 2014

Actress Penelope Cruz, shown at the 86th Annual Academy Awards, was one of 100 Spanish celebrities endorsing a letter accusing Israel of genocide.

SEVILLA, Spain (JTA) — A letter accusing Israel of genocide in Gaza was endorsed by 100 Spanish celebrities, including Academy Award winners Pedro Almodovar, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz.

On Monday the actors, writers and directors endorsed a letter that Bardem published last week in the Barcelona-based El Periodico de Catalunya, the daily reported. “This is a war of occupation and extermination against a whole people without means, confined to a miniscule territory without water and where hospitals, ambulances, and children are targeted and presumed to be terrorists,” Bardem, himself an Academy Award-winning actor, wrote.

European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor told JTA that “Rather than outrageously attacking a fellow democracy for defending itself against radical terrorists, the time of Spanish public figures would be better put to use fighting against the rapidly growing hatred of Jews in their country, which according to recent surveys is one of the highest in Europe. The gratuitous use of the term ‘genocide’ and the fact that no similar statement has been released while hundreds of thousands are massacred and made refugees in the Middle East and Africa demonstrates grave ignorance or extreme malice.”

Kantor added: “I would be interested in reading the opinion of the same Spanish celebrities after thousands of rockets are fired at Madrid or Barcelona.”

Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Pedro Almodovar, and other members of the Spanish film industry sent a public letter to the European Union on Tuesday denouncing Israel for “genocide.” Dozens of Spanish actors, writers, musicians, directors, and other entertainment representatives asked the EU to “condemn the bombing by land, sea, and air against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip.” The letter blamed the latest outbreak of violence squarely on Israel because it “continues to advance into and invade the Palestinian territories instead of returning to the 1967 borders.”

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Spanish claque of useful idiots “blamed the latest outbreak of violence squarely on Israel because it ‘continues to advance into and invade the Palestinian territories instead of returning to the 1967 borders.’ ”

Those communist sycophants are the same scum of the earth that support the genocide of the Cuban People by the Castro brothers and their communist ruffians.

Have they ever denounced and condemned the Christian genocide by Muslims all around Africa and the Middle East?

The Muslims invaded the Iberic Peninsula in the 8th Century defeating the Christian Kingdoms and ruled Spain for over 700 years. Now they are demanding their right to the Al Andaluz and the return of their Spanish Caliphate to the 1400 borders. Are the Spanish Islamic sycophants going to start a campaign for the return of Spain to the Moors?

Well, I was on the fence until this, but these are celebrities, f'Petessake. They're better people than us. Right.

I am reminded of an old bit by professional wrestler The Rock, who would nod pleasantly when someone was offering him an opinion and suddenly bellow, "It doesn't MATTER what you think!"

Spain exterminated and expelled it’s Jews long ago.
Then it was the Aztec, the Inca...
Oh well. The Jews are still around.
Evidently there are some left in Israel.
Hop to it, amigos!

Nope. And just think, when these radicals begin to fight to reclaim Spain for the Caliphate, what will these celebrities demand then?

They are cretins who cannot even understand the explicitly stated and repeatedly stated objectives of the Arabs/Palestinians to destroy Israel and "kill all the Jews." Who gives a rat's ass what "celebrities" think?

What a “NICE WAY” to put Castro’s Death Squads..
Some people just can’t allow themselves to speak/face the truth..

Same ones that put a positive spin on Stalin, Hiter’s and Mao’s.. 200 to 300 million murdered people by their hands..

AND the multi-Billions they made miserable..
and still are.....................

Last time it took almost 800 years to extricate the Muslims from Spain and it did not happen until 1492. So if you Dhimmi’s want to go through that again you are dumber than rocks which is probably true.

That's it, it's about "fashion" and the cluelessness of the rich and protected. Sometimes I really do think that the only thing that would bring these people to their senses would be bombs going off in their mansions, but the parable of Lazarus and the rich man suggests that even then they wouldn't get it.

I wouldn’t mind seeing some rockets thrown on their houses, let’s see how they handle it..but it won’t happen..these rich hollywood liberals are coddled and well protected..they think “Hey I will get more fans now if I bash Israel” they are probably right..they will get more Arab support which is what they are after

Such a shame, as that moron Bardem was good in “No Country for Old Men,” one of my favorite films. I even purchased it off iTunes. You’d think all “them Jews” who run Hollywood would ban these Marxists from future productions. But a secular progressive Jew is a Marxist first and Jew second.

Wouldn't make any difference. Those 100 Spanish lefties would then issue a statement saying: "Spain brought all this on itself. Spain deserves to be punished."

What makes THEM think they are experts on genocide?

Jews KNOW genocide firsthand.

Genocide? Israel has nuclear weapons. If they truly wanted to commit genocide, they could commit genocide.

Isn’t it strange when Israel decides to commit genocide, according to these wing-nuts?

It only resorts to genocide, after thousands of missiles have been fired into it’s territory. Why not commit genocide at other times? I’m sure these people have no idea why.

It’s always to a pleasure to watch anti-Semites raise their head, to be seen in public for what they are. I doubt any of them have a clue either. What? Me? An anti-Semite? Me? Noooooooooo...

Yes!

Heh. These pro-Palestinian celebrity elites in Spain remind me of that thread about Gloria Estefan & family hosting an Obama fundraiser. They could have used a nice long stay under Fidel Castro until they figure out that socialism doesn’t work.

Likewise, the pro-Palestinian cheerleaders in Spain need to be sent back in a time machine to the period when Spain was under militant Islamic rule. It took Spaniards 781 years to get their country back and these idiots are promoting the other side.

My mom is Spanish. I don’t know what it is with those people, but they always seem to have love flings with dictators, terrorists, and tyrants.

That Spain suffered 7 centuries of humiliation and colonization to the Muslims makes no difference to them. Like France, they are a society that is slowing dying and being devoured by PC and Socialism. The irony of all of this is that if you took the DNA of the average Spaniard, they’d have more Hebrew DNA than the minute Arab DNA that “scholars” always declare Spaniards to have a lot of.

They don't understand that the Arabs want to exterminate Spain. You'd think they'd know their own country's history, but this is the usual assortment of sodomites and communist entertainers for whom ignorance is a virtue.
