The stars blast Nasrallah

A group of 84 Hollywood personalities have signed a statement blaming Hamas and Hezbullah for terror activities in the Middle East, the war in Lebanon, and for harming innocents. The statement appeared in the Hollywood Reporter newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, and the Variety newspaper. The signatories included 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. Note that Steven Spielberg is not on the list. (I haven't seen the advertisement, but I have to believe that if Spielberg had signed, it would have been noted).

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.

Los Angeles Consul General Ehud Danoch is conducting public relations activities, and on Wednesday night he briefed the heads of the William Morris advertising 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. Hopefully, they won't be taxed on their way into the country.

I read this elsewhere...and tried, without success, to find it on the LA Times website, at www.latimes.com.

Maybe as it might be considered advertising, such pages are not shown on the web edition. Odd, the Comrades of the LA Times (aka Pravda-West) will of course take the money for a full page spread, but not show it on the website.

Maybe I'm reading something into this that isn't so. But I think it accurate to say the anti-Bush, anti-War on Terror, "blame America first" LA Times, like their fellow travellers at the NY Times, (aka Pravda-East) would be aghast at being incorrectly thought of as staunchly pro-Israel, patriotically pro-America, pro-West, anti-Islamofascist, non-dhimmi, non-appeasers.

But like the song said in that great musical movie, Cabaret, "money makes the world go 'round". And it'll buy a full page statement in the Times.

All that aside, it IS a VERY refreshing change to see that not all Hollywood types are empty-headed left-wing trained parrots. Some actually do have and use their intellects and have a sense of morals.
