Weeks of hand wringing over tragic deaths. Weeks of calls for a ceasefire to shield aggressors from the consequences of their aggression and leave them free to regroup and cause more trouble. Oh so much effort expended to evade and even reverse the cause of those deaths, as with for example our ex-President Jimmy Carter saying, “…the concerns I exposed have gotten even worse now with the United States supporting and encouraging Israel in its unjustified attack on Lebanon. … I don’t think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon.”
Who would have expected a cadre of Hollywood elites lead by Nicole Kidman to take out a full-page ad in the LA Times and lay the blame for those deaths squarely at the feet of Hezbollah and friends?
[Nicole Kidman], 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.”
Wow, as if seeing her in Eyes Wide Shut wasn’t enough…
