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?

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.

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 think most of this group was known as the most conservative (least liberal?) members in Hollywood. Michael Douglas and Kelly Preston are a little surprise to me. Isn't Preston married to John Travolta? Is he on the list, I wonder.

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

It will help. Those who are afraid to speak out in Hollywood will be encouraged. Those who blather on endlessly about how the US is the worst terrorists of all, they will maybe have a second thought. It is a bold move, I applaud them.

Producer Sam Raimi...GO SAM GO! He's a big GOP supporter...thank you!

About time the Hollywood'ers put down their bongs and their Prada goodie bags and reached in and found some good old common sense. How about making some PRO-AMERICAN movies?

This is a great story. I'm wondering who the other names are.

Looks like the Hollywood stars can't win. If they are against the war, they are commie leftist wackos and if they support the war and our troops, the Joos made them do it.

I would like to know what instigated this and what's in it for these hollywood types. I don't trust them when they start lining up in support of truth, justice, and the American way as defined by regular Americans.

Note the Aussie paper makes them sound like they are freedom fighters in uniform on the front lines:

"It [the ad they took out] specifically targets "terrorist organisations" such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine."

"The Peacemaker" was one of the best action movies I've ever seen.

Almost all non-stop action. George Clooney was believable in his role and Nicole Kidman is always good eye candy.

Could it be believed that maybe Hollywood is finally getting the word. The very freedom that these types believed in is finally at a point of maybe not so safe after all. Appeasing terrorist can no longer be tolerated if we as a free society is to succeed. It is not a question which party will save the free nations, but instead the support of the MSM as well as the Democrats right now is desperately needed. I fear that even the current Administration is tiring of the fight when they have to fight at least a third of the population and try to fight a war at the same time. Stupidity is rampant in this Country.
