Photograph: Dave M Benett/WireImage A group of Spain's biggest film personalities, including Penélope Cruz, Pedro Almodóvar and Javier Bardem, have written an open letter in a Spanish newspaper denouncing Israel's bombing of Gaza.
The letter calls for the EU to "condemn the bombing by land, sea and air against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip... Gaza is living through horror these days, besieged and attacked by land, sea and air. Palestinians' homes are being destroyed, they are being denied water, electricity [and] free movement to their hospitals, schools and fields while the international community does nothing."
They lamented the "physical, moral, psychological" effect that the attacks are having on the people of Gaza, and also called for an end to the Israeli blockade that restricts what can be taken across the Gaza border.

Anti-Semitism is on a roll. The Nazis have risen from the dead. This is like “The Night of the Nazi Zombies”.
From (the RED) Guardian. Natch.
There are probably millions of Cruz’s running around, but only one Ted Cruz.
They’re shunned by me, but I can’t control what other people do or think.
And while they're at it, teach Iran a lesson that it will take centuries to forget.
Funny how they don’t condemn ISIS for slaughtering Christians in Iraq and now apparently also in India..they don’t condemn Boko Haram for slaughtering men, women, and children by burning them alive..and how about those Nigerian girls, guess no one cares about them anymore..yet when Israel defends herself, you see these no name morons who are desperate for some fans coming out of the woodwork to bash Israel. I tell ya what, I will give Penelope Cruz 5 bucks if she can locate Gaza on a map
Do these jerks who make believe for a living realize that Spain is at the top of the radical islamist’s radar?
Maybe the next time they appear on the Red Carpet we need to let loose Joan Rivers on them.
They totally forget history.....much of which has been re-written.
I will never watch or pay for another movie they appear in.
The English actors Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman and Vanessa Redgrave also walk the thin line between supporting Palestinians and hating Jews.
If they have commented on the Israel/Hamas War, I have not read about it.
Don’t bother. She would spend it on a trendy, pretentious latte.
Coming from a bunch of narcissistic line readers whose job description is nothing more than playing make-believe, this is what passes for deep intellectual thought? And to think when I was a kid I was made fun of for believing pro wrestling was real.
Yeah, I thought the same thing for a second. WHEW!
Bardem and Cruz will move to America, vote Socialist, and continue to hate Jews and Israel.
A generation of adults don’t seem to realize/know that the Nazi’s in WWII had great friends in the oil fields of the Ukraine. USA bombers were lost trying to take out the supply of oil. Nazis like Soros were involved in the war then and are involved there now. It seems like the USA cannot get unhitched from evils such as communism and/or fascism.
Funny, ISIS plans to retake Spain ASAP.
You weren’t expecting it?
Yep, we’ll see what they’ll do when it’s Al-Andalus again.
Im convinced the reason some of these celebriTURDS are doing this is because they think its now “Cool” to hate Israel, they want more fans..they don’t care about the Jewish fans they might lose because they will make up for it with new Arab fans..that is why they are doing it, for fame..if these idiots were around in the 30s they would be calling Hitler a good guy
Movie people. What DON’T they know?
I have no use for Spain anyway. They burned Jews at the stake, subjected them to horrific acts of torture, confiscated their goods, expelled them wholesale from their country in 1492, and now they give us Peanutty-pee Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem. Who gives a fig what 2 shallow celebs have to say?
Also, since these are film personalities, I would consider this "stupid people saying stupid things" and ignore them
exactly — low iq idiots
Did these people speak out against Putin in the Ukraine?
Why are they picking on Israel?
I’m sorry, it is anti-semitism in their case.
Did they denounce Gaza’s bombing of Israel as well?
If the Palestinians want peace, why do they execute anti-war protesters?
Get a grip. Silence can mean acquiescence. Freepers know what lack of pushback meant with a mute President Bush. We're still suffering from it and WILL suffer from it for a long time.
These three anti-Israeli no-names deserve shunning....i.e. boycotting of whatever they do, whatever they produce, wherever they appear or whatever they endorse.
No one does.
These islamist facilitators evidently want the return of Al Andalus.
