Jane and a scary M-16 get too close for her comfort:

American actress and activist Jane Fonda visited a refugee camp and a hospital in the West Bank on Saturday, capping a three-day visit to the region aimed at promoting peace.

Fonda, who was celebrating her 65th birthday, passed through a West Bank crossing point at Qalqilyah, trudging through mud and clutching a bouquet of red roses given to her by a Palestinian women's group.

She toured West Bank villages and nearby Israeli settlements and was led through a Palestinian refugee camp near Ramallah in a daylong tour by the Jerusalem Center for Women. Fonda also paid a visit to Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat at his Muqata headquarters in the city.

It was the final visit of a trip organized by a global movement to stop violence against women. The movement, called V-Day, was inspired by the off-Broadway hit "The Vagina Monologues" and its playwright, Eve Ensler. Ensler accompanied Fonda and led discussions with Palestinian women.

"This is the focal point of so many conflicts," Fonda said. "Both sides aren't hearing each other's narratives, and maybe that's our role as artists."

Fonda and Ensler met with Fatima al-Kasba, 37, who lost two sons in fighting. Kasba said her sons, Yasser, 12, and Samer, 15, were killed a little over a month apart by IDF troops.

Later, Fonda and Ensler toured the Abu Raya Rehabilitation Center, where victims of violence and spinal cord injuries are treated and provided with physiotherapy.

Fonda, a two-time Oscar winner and fitness guru, said she had been to Israel and the West Bank in 1980, but what she saw today was dramatically different. She said she was most surprised by the number and proximity of settlements to the Palestinian population.

On Thursday, the American actress met with MKs Yael Dayan and Naomi Chazan in Jerusalem. She also visited Israelis wounded in suicide bombings who are recovering at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem.

1. Pizgat Ze'ev is a well established neighborhood that has been annexed.

2. Jane Fonda is still an idiot.

It used to be, long ago, before the political correct heresy we have been subjected to, that each military club had "Hanoi Jane" urinal cakes in each urinal. They were manufactured by some company in the east, and sent world wide to the military clubs, barracks, and what not as a reminder of her treasonous b***s***.

Maybe I can find the company and see if the IDF would like a few for their military clubs and barracks, since they have something in common with US veterans now.

She is still a world class idiot...you are absolutely right.

Huh? Yeah, paint a picture for us artiste Fonda. I'm sure it's bound to come out looking like a paint-by-numbers job.

I guess Hanoi Jane didn't have enough time to visit Isreali families whose loved-ones were murdered by Palestinian suicide bombers or shot dead as they were innocently going about their business. Hanoi Jane didn't care to visit wounded children in Israeli hospitals whose bodies are peppered with nails dipped in rat poison and human feces, courtesy of a Palestinian suicide killer.

You would've thought she would have learned her lesson over Viet Nam.

I am not amazed at her stupidity and self-focus, but gave her a wee more credit to recognize that a large share of the American public still thinks of her as a traitor.

Where was Ramallah Jane when the World Trade Center was destroyed? What did she do for the victims of that? What is she doing to fight the root cause of that, gutter cults like Al Queda? And what statement has she made condemning suicide bombings?

"Ramallah Jane" urinal cakes, an inevitability.

Your 'rear end' comment was apparently quite accurate. This is what the surname "Fonda" means:

FONDA Spanish, Fonda, bottom, foundation, the source or beginning. Fondi, a town of Naples, in Italy, so called from the Latin fundus, the bottom.

LOL.

1. Jane Fonda is still an idiot.

2. At 65 she's still not too old to hang.

3. She does look bad though, maybe Yassir can give her some of his drugs, dilate those pupils a lot like his.

4. At 65 she's still not too old to hang.

I think Israel knows what the palestinian "narrative" sounds like, all too well.

The article did in fact state: "She also visited Israelis wounded in suicide bombings who are recovering at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem." One assumes the Israeli victims were carefully selected by her handlers, Naomi Chazan of the Meretz (appeasement-let's-surrender-now) party to make sure that their relatives wouldn't shower the distinguished guests with rotten eggs and tomatoes.

Get over yourself, Jane.

BTW, what's with the pink scarf and stilleto heels; is that what the "best dressed" traitors are wearing now?

I remember. I remember the interview of our POW with Ms Fonda. One was blinking a Morse Code to tell the world that they were coerced to say what they said. And they were tortured because of her actions.

This woman needs to die a natural but painful death.

No, their role is to pretend to be someone other than who they are for our entertainment.
We've seen what Hanoi Jane and her commie friends from Horrywood have done to our military personal overseas, and they should be publically shunned for it.
Politics is certainly not their strong point!

She said she converted to Christianity. It appears she converted to ***APOSTATE*** Christianity. To side with the leftists against Israel is stinking fruit.

This motley troupe was inspired by the Vagina Monologues? Can you imagine them offering to perform the show in Islam? It should be required that, when Hollywood leftists journey as "artistic" ambassadors , before opening their mouths, they must screen an important piece from the body of their work or perform a segment of the Vagina Monologues for their hosts, particularly the Islamic hosts. (Followed by a disclaimer from the US Gov).

Jane hasn't been an "artist" for decades, so what the he!! is she talking about? Her most recent claim to fame was being Ted Turner's bi!ch. Is that know as "artistry"? ;-)
