Heads of the film industry in Hollywood and prominent movie stars have signed a statement blaming Hamas and Hizbullah for terror activities in the Middle East, the war in Lebanon, and for harming innocents.

 

Some 84 senior film industry members signed the statement, published in the Hollywood Reporter newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, and the Variety newspaper.

 

Among the signatories: Sylvester Stallone, James Woods, Bruce Willis, director Ridley Scott, tennis player Serena Williams, Nicole Kidman,

WASHINGTON - Heads of the film industry in Hollywood and prominent movie stars have signed a statement blaming Hamas and Hizbullah for terror activities in the Middle East, the war in Lebanon, and for harming innocents.

 

Some 84 senior film industry members signed the statement, published in the Hollywood Reporter newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, and the Variety newspaper.

 

Among the signatories: Sylvester Stallone, James Woods, Bruce Willis, director Ridley Scott, tennis player Serena Williams, Nicole Kidman,

​ ​​​​Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, William Hurt, Josh Malina, Kelly Preston, Danny DeVito, Don Johnson, and media tycoon Rupert Murdock.

 

The Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles has been active since the start of fighting with an aim of drafting Hollywood stars to back Israel. During the war, Ehud Danoch, the consul general, initiated a mission aimed at enlisting support for Israel in Hollywood. The team was comprised of Israeli directors and producers in Hollywood.

 

'Stop terror at any price'

 

The statement said that if terror around the world is not stopped, chaos will rule and innocents will continue to die. The statement called for terror to be stopped at any price.

 

Consul General Danoch is continuing with his PR activities, and on Wednesday night he briefed the heads of the William Morris agency on the recent events in Lebanon.

 

Actor Adam Sandler was present at one of the many briefings the consul general gave this week. At the end of the briefing, Sandler announced that he would personally donate USD 100,000 to the children of the north and south, and about 400 Playstation games purchased by the actor are expected to be transferred to the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem in the coming days.p>

In a war of ideas, Hollywood's important. They can put their power behind the good guys. ( Oh, and many thanks to the signers)

This can't be true. They must have all been taken over by the pod people from the 'Body Snatchers'. On another bright note, maybe we will see some better acting out of all of them. :)

Perhaps soon, someone will post one of these that contains all 84 names; that, at least, would be good.

That's what W has been saying all along!

Kudos to all those in Hollywood who have taken a stand for Freedom and against terrorism.

Well, leave Adam Baldwin out of it. He seems okay. Seems to be the sane one in the family

Hell, he played a character named Jayne.

Before 2001 I spent over $300 per year at the movies. But after 2001, I spend less than $ 20 dollars a year...and that's in DVD's. Hollywood is not American. Nobody to really appreciate. The golden era of Hollywood is over. Decline and the tedious characterizes the American Movie Industry now.

I just can't do it. Even the movies I've bought leave a bad taste. I want to enjoy the story in the movie but when I think of all the crap that Hollywood has said about how stupid we "little people" are after 2001.....I said to myself, "What the hell am I paying them for?" It's just over. I've kicked them out of my "little" house.

Adam Baldwin is not related to the other Baldwins - Alec, William, Stephen and Daniel, the latter four of whom are brothers.

Can't they just shut up and make movies?

OK, this time they agree with me, but that doesn't make them any more a source for foreign policy statements than when they don't agree with me.

Shalom.

Funny to see these Hollywood liberals standing side-by-side with George W. Bush and the Israelis against terrorism.

You'd think at one point a lot of those liberals who still feel a tie to Israel would suddenly stand up and notice what's happening.

Perhaps they've finally noticed that the Left has decided to allow "Never Again" to become "Not Soon Enough!".

The right is their only hope. They may take some time to realize it, but hopefully they will before all is lost.

For the innocents here at home and Israel, it can't come soon enough.
