Skip to comments.Kidman condemns Hamas, Hezbollah
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.
You're welcome...I know the rules around here.
Streisand has been supporting Lament against Lieberman.
Haven't got the complete list. Can anyone help?
Michael Mann ... my favorite director! -Heat- and -Last of Mohicans- and -Collateral-
Notice how many of the signers make mostly action movies
OK, it's a good name then! Having experienced the eyewall of the weather event Hurricane Andrew in 92, it got my attention.
Wife and I are both alumni of University of Miami. Not exactly sports fans, but of course we always want UM to win. They've had some great football teams over the years.
Well....maybe the next thing you know they will figure out that there WERE/ARE TERRORISTS in IRAQ!!! They're on the right track....maybe?
I am quite surprised at some of those names, and not surprised at all by others. Good on all of them!
My thoughts as well. One thing for sure is that this can only help. There is no down side.
I understand your sentiment, but right now this country is divided due to the rabid Left. Having a few powerful Hollywood types on our side, and vocally so, is a good thing. We all have to choose which side we are on. I'll take their support and kinship in killing the Islamo whackjobs.
That's only a valid statement if you believe Hollyweird types denigrating our nation and troops doesn't do any damage.
Did they offer any support to our nation?
Dennis Hopper and Michael Douglas surprised me a lot. I also had no idea that Hurt was in our camp.
I'll tell you who gives a rip what they think. All of the mindless sheeples in this country care a great deal what they think.
The fact that some of these Hollyweird people are finally standing up and voicing an opinion that makes sense actually means a great deal. If even 10% of the mindless crowd let this sway their opinion, like they do with everything else Hollyweird or the MSM tells them, it can mean a lot of extra votes for the conservative candidates in the next election.
"We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualities in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and Hamas. 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."
People that signed it who I recognize include Bernie Mac, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Dennis Hopper, Don Jonson, Gary Sinise, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Larry Elder, Michael Douglas, Nicole Kidman, Pat Sajak, Patricia Heaton, Rupert Murdoch, Serena Williams, Sherry Lansing, Sir Ridley Scott, Sylvester Stallone, Vivica A. Fox, WIlliam Hurt. There are a total of 90 or so signatures. Many of them with obviously Jewish surnames. I'll try to get a list of names posted.
When Hollyweird Lefties denigrate our troops and our nation, do you come into the thread and say, "Well, that doesn't matter?" If not, you're being a hypocrite.
I knew exactly what you meant when you asked. I've gotten that question quite a bit over the years.
Even though I graduated from the University of Delaware, my roommate during those times was originally from Miami also (Palmetto Sr. High graduate). In addition, my uncle lived in Hialeah at the time. It wasn't quite as bad there, but it was bad enough, so I know how it affected folks down there. They've since moved to North Carolina (inland, of course).
I took the wife and kids to the Keys a couple years ago, and Homestead still isn't what used to be. It's so erie to see the devastation still even after so many years have passed.
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.
Yup. I loved 'Peacemaker' and also 'Executive Decision'. That was back in the day when it was not politically incorrect to show the Muzzies as terrorists.
Hod did you get the listing of names. Directly from the LA Times? Would love to see the whole list.
What military base are you posting from?
You must be in the military, right, or otherwise you'd be a hypocrite. Especially when you consider that some of these people are too old to enlist. Even if you go in as a nurse or doctro, the age limit is 47, IIRC. Maybe you want to go kick in doors with Michael Douglasand Sylvester Stallone, but I wouldn't want to, they're older than dirt.
And since you're not a hypocrite, surely you've condemned every civilian who hasn't enlisted in the same manner, right?
The name 'Arnold Schwarzenegger' is conspicuously absent. Oh wait..err.. never mind.
James Woods? Patricia Heaton? Bruce Willis? Just being good Americans to please Da Jooooz?
Puh-leeze. You're so full of crap it's coming out your ears.
They made their bed. Let them sleep in it. It's true not only for these idiots but for the Jewish money men who've supported them and their leftist ideology. Leftist Hollywood has been against the WOT all along. They never understood it was an underlying factor in the safety of Israel (well maybe some did, but likely felt as long as the US was involved another Israeli war was remote), but they were wrong.
Now it's hit them in the face. So they become pro Israel but, I'm sure if one asked, likely still against the WOT.
Don't put much stock in these people. It means nothing.
After seeing his performance in American President, I have to say that he is either A) such a bleeding heart liberal that he would pay cold hard cash for the 'privledge' of licking the sweat off of Clintoon's testicles, or B) he is absolutely one of the best actors to ever grace the silver screen.
That movie was nauseating, and I believe it was the main inspiration for the West Wing, which was basically, the movie turned into a tv series.
They have become painfully cognizant of the public's growing contempt for Hollywood and almost any movie it produces.
Time to make up to the rednecks.
Why take a whiz on somebody when they do a good thing? Are you so important that it's beneath you?
This is just a ploy. They got their marching orders from the DNC. This is one of the first salvos fired in the Democrats new agenda to take security away from the Republicans. They dont give a damn if Hamas or the hezzies kill jews they are shilling for the DNC.
Is Jamie Masada on the list? He owns the Laugh Factory. Maybe they only wanted actors, directors, and producers on that list.
Palmetto Sr High isn't too far from here, several miles north is all. It serves the kids from our neighborhood which is about the southern limit for its census.
In any case, Go Miami!
Mann produced "Crime Story" too
And holy cow, a "Heat" video game is coming out
Yep. No good deed goes unpunished on FR, where everybody knows everything they need to know to judge every act with perfect wisdom.
He is a CLASSICAL liberal in the mold of his father and MOST of the Hollywood of old.
Of course. We run the world. BTW, I know Passover is far off, but some of us are already preparing and we need the blood of gentile children for our matzah. Care to contribute?
Thread for your ping list, SJackson.
don't worry..I can sit here and listen...Im not going anywhere
Now there's the first logical thought I've read on this thread. Everyone's either too wishful or too accepting. Anytime these wusses come out with something there's an agenda behind it. Again, look at the source...the money!
"Whatcha drinkin' neighbor?"
"Heineken? F%^& that $%^&! PABST BLUE RIBBON!!!"
I think he is Jewish, actually.
I knew there was something there (about all of these folks) to appreciate. They just needed an excuse to express it.
It's not supporting the United States or George W. Bush. It's supporting Israel.
I'll take what I can get.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Did Nicole really dump Scientology? Good for her. Must have wanted to raise her children Catholic instead of in some cult. She woke up.
Did you ask that when James Woods castigated Bill Clinton for being a perjuring scumbag? Did you ask that when Heaton spoke out on behalf of the pro-life cause? Did you ask that every time Willis went out to entertain the troops?
Note the Aussie paper makes them sound like they are freedom fighters in uniform on the front lines:
BS. The article says they ran an ad, and "targets" is a political, marketing and medical term as well as a military one. You are allowing something to color your perception of the text.
New thread, same old whining.
Never saw that movie. Maybe Michael Douglas needed the work or did it as a favor
DS- Run Away
