Skip to comments.Jon Voight to ‘Ignorant’ Javier Bardem & Penelope Cruz on Israel....
Posted on 08/02/2014 7:20:00 PM PDT by Beave Meister
Actor Jon Voight is a conservative. That, in and of itself, is a rarity in Hollywood. But Voight is also an outspoken supporter of Israel.
As a result, after fellow-actors Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz denounced Israeli genocide in an open letter last week, Voight couldnt help but respond.
Here are excerpts, via The Hollywood Reporter: I am heartsick that people like Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem could incite anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage they have caused.
They are obviously ignorant of the whole story of Israels birth, when in 1948 the Jewish people were offered by the UN a portion of the land originally set aside for them in 1921 and the Arab Palestinians were offered the other half.
The Arabs rejected the offer, and the Jews accepted only to be attacked by five surrounding Arab countries committed to driving them into the sea. The Arabs tried again in 1967 and again in 1973.

God bless Jon Voight!
Voight is a stand-up guy. And a terrific actor, one of the best.
Sorry to hear about Penelope being a typical Hollywoodland type.
I always thought she was sort of hot. Also like her in “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin”.
Penelope Cruz is an idiot I have no clue who the other idiot even is
Penelope Cruz is a Lava Lamp.....interesting to look at but not very bright.
He could be acting you know. Pretending to be conservative
but that would be insane in Hollywood. Or would it?
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?
Xavier is husband to Cruz and the two have now birthed two children. Believe both are from Spain
Well said. And, describes many in both Hollywood and in the Media.
these celebs are willfully ignorant. Hamas/Al queda will kill them after the Jews.
Actually, these two don’t really care what happens in Gaza...It is just Hollywood and liberal “cool” to be on the Hamas side...
THAT is all they care about...To look “cool” to their Hollywood groupies....
Cruz and Bardem are inhabitants of Bizarro World, where people defending themselves against genocide are endlessly accused of genocide.
Somehow they failed to notice that in no muslim country can a Jew live openly as a Jew. And the forces arrayed against Israel have tried repeatedly to drive them into the sea. Again and again and again.
If Israel uprooted itself and moved lock stock and barrel to Bolivia, Hamas would move to Bolivia. Because they are on this earth to kill Jews where ever they are, where ever they have to go to find them.
> these celebs are willfully ignorant. Hamas/Al queda will kill them after the Jews.
They believe their “star power” shields them from danger. I want to see their faces when they see heads and fingers cut off of fellow useful idiot actors by the people they support.
That is the trade mark of Liberals; cheapen and adulterate words as to make them meaningless.
They want to shock you in to believing them with their use of shocking words.
The use of the word GENOCIDE is supposed to shock and fill you with hatred of the Israelis because they are killing Palestinians by the millions (there are millions of Palestinians).
But the reality is that there have been less than two hundred Palestinians killed in the present conflict.
The word Genocide used to mean that a huge number of a people had been killed in an effort of wipe them from the face of the Earth.
In World War Two the Nazis attempted to totally remove the Jewish people from the Face of Europe by either driving them out or killing them.
In the process they killed two thirds of the Jews in Europe and one third of all of the Jews in the world.
To use the word Genocide in the context of the Israel trying to kill off the Palestinians in the West Bank conflict is pure sophistry and adulterates the meaning of the word.
They should be ashamed. But I wont hold my breath waiting for a published apology.
These actors should be doubly ashamed because it is the stated goal of Hamas to drive out or kill all of the Israelis in the Middle East.
Should have been Gaza
