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.

So is Babs. I didn't see her name. For that matter, so is Mike Wallace.....though he may have forgetten during his most recent interview...

Douglas has always been a lefty in my book though, so it was a genuine surprise.

No it's not. Look at where their money comes from. They have to keep their Jewish financiers happy. That's all this is.

Heh... These people can't win for losing.

They can be loyal to the Jews all they want. It beats the alternative, if you ask me.

There is something wrong with this. I really think this is somehow going to work into a press release from The DNC or Howard Dean. Don't know how yet, but give me some time.

Michael Douglas? Seriously? Most of the others aren't too much of a surprise...

Maybe shtooping Maureen Down for the Liberal Cause shocked him back to reality.

How did you pick that screen name?

Goes way back to the 90's and my first internet experience. I'm a life long University of Miami fan, and my first "discussion board" was a Hurricanes fan site back in 1997. It just kind of stuck.

"Isn't Preston married to John Travolta?" Kind of like Tom Cruise is "married" to Katie Holmes.

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.

Not only that, but I give credence to a cabal of actors about as much as I would give a convention of hairdressers. Their opinions mean nothing to me. They're a-c-t-o-r-s, for God's sake. They make their livings pretending.

James Woods

James Woods is a genius. He was also on one of the 9/11 hijackers' dress rehearsal flights in August 2001, and reported to the flight crew that he thought the men were hijackers, based on their behavior.

Nice to see but how is this gonna help anything?

It may change the opinions of the lemmings who really have no opinions other that those that they glean from hollywood morons and the MSM.

That's about it.

One of the cool things about watching old B&W WWII movies is the amazing fact that Hollywood was on OUR side back then.

It didn't seem amazing at the time because the whole country was on the same page.

If we could only recapture that same unity of purpose today.

Sam Raimi is from Michigan and hangs with his Michigan chums, Bruce Campbell, Rob Tapert, Lucy Lawless (married to Tapert) and brother, Ted Raimi. Nice to see Sam on the list. Michael Douglas is a surprise.

"......stop terrorism at all costs."

I wonder if they even realize that this includes pre-emptive war.

Whether I agree or disagree with these Hollywood folk, who gives a rip what they think? They're actors. They should shut up and act [or direct, or whatever].
