Kidman condemns Hamas, Hezbollah
Herald Sun ^ | 17 August 2006

Posted on 08/16/2006 5:19:45 PM PDT by Aussie Dasher

NICOLE Kidman has made a public stand against terrorism.

The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today's Los Angeles Times newspaper.

It specifically targets "terrorist organisations" such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.

"We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hezbollah and Hamas," the ad reads.

"If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.

"We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs."

A who's who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.

The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.

Directors Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Michael Mann, Dick Donner and Sam Raimi also signed their names.

Other Hollywood powerplayers supporting the ad included Sumner Redstone, the chairman and majority owner of Paramount Pictures, and billionaire mogul, Haim Saban.

This from Hollywood?

Has anyone checked Streisand's pulse?

You could knock me over with a feather.

I wonder if they asked Michael Moore if he would sign it.

Bruce Willis tried to but he was turned down because of his age.

Look at the money. Look at who funds Hollywood. Look at their spiraling viewership. This is an effort to stem the tide. Nothing more.

I don't believe a word these people say outside of how it affects their own well being.

Hello,

Wow, this is unexpected, and welcomed. Not so much by us, but there are millions of Americans that take what these people say as important. (Why, I'll never know....)

I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked, MOgirl
