Israel has been fighting not only a war with Gaza, but a public relations battle as well. Many have been rightly asking, Where are the Hollywood supporters of Israel who happen to be Jewish? Some of the biggest, most prominent Israel supporters who are also Jewish have remained silent specifically Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Barbra Streisand. They do not hesitate to speak out on supporting Democrats and their causes, yet they have remained missing in action regarding the latest Gaza conflict.
There have been too few in Hollywood who are willing to stand up for what Israel is doing, but many have spoken out against Israel. Spanish filmmaking icon Pedro Almodovar and hundreds of other Spanish artists joined actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem by signing a letter, accusing Israel of Genocide. They stated that Israel "humiliates, detains, and tramples on the rights of the Palestinian population in all of the West Bank every day, also causing many deaths. The letter also referred to the Israel Defense Forces as the "Israel Occupation Forces."
Did the prominent Jews in Hollywood mentioned above denounce this? No. It was actor Jon Voight who responded, The Palestinians elected Hamas, a terrorist organization, and they immediately began firing thousands of rockets into Israel. I am asking all my peers who signed that poison letter against Israel to examine their motives. Can you take back the fire of anti-Semitism that is raging all over the world now? You should hang your heads in shame. You should come forth with deep regrets for what you did and ask for forgiveness from the suffering people in Israel.

Hollywoodites who have expressed solidarity with the Palestinians, including Rihanna, Jonathan Demme, and Selena Gomez.
Great quote from Joanne Rivers:
If New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out. If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey. Where did she [Gomez] go to college? Ask her if she knows how to spell ‘Palestinian.”
“If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey.”
Actually they would begin building toll booths.
To Joan Rivers on the scenario of NJ firing rockets into NY: What’s this “we” sh*t Kemosabe?
Spielberg once again proves he’s pond scum; he tries to destroy Megan Foxes’ career (such that it was) because her joking comment about Michael Bay being a “Nazi” offended his Jewishness. But actually standing up for Jews who are being subjected to terroristic rocket attacks? Crickets.
Unfair to Local 12 of the tunnel digger’s union! Heaven’s to mergatroid!
Part of me thinks that Spielberg & Streisand live on Mount Olympus (that’s Malibu in Hollywood talk) and are probably completely unaware of such a petition. Zeus and Athena rarely leave Malibu and only read the New York Times.
Jon Voight has also been supportive of Israel - and has slammed 0 and J F’n Kerry on their Israel stance.
These so-called Hollywood Jewish celebrities are jewish by birth and name only. My bet is they do NOT attend a synagogue very often and when they do, it’s probably for a phto op and publicity.
I seriously doubt they practice their birth religion.
These jerks need to go directly to ISIS and tell them how disgusted they are with the uS.
