Jon Voight hits Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem on Israel : Jihad Watch: "They “incited anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage that they have caused.” Indeed so. “Jon Voight To Cruz, Bardem On Israel: ‘Oblivious To The Damage They Have Caused,’” Deadline.com, August 2, 2014:
The brutal conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has moved several high profile actors and filmmakers to voice their opinions in support of one side or the other. The latest is Jon Voight, who attacks Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz for signing a letter accusing the Israeli military of genocide.
In response to the strongly-worded July 29 letter signed by Bardem, Cruz and Pedro Almodovar, among others and published in a Spanish newspaper, Voight blasted the actors this morning with his own Open letter saying they have defamed the only democratic country of goodwill in the Middle East: Israel (Bardem and Cruz later clarified their statements this week).
A longtime, outspoken supporter of Israel, Voight wrote that Bardem and Cruz should “hang their heads in shame” over their shortsightedness with the country’s situation, arguing that they “incited anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage that they have caused.”
When asked by Deadline this morning to expand on his op-ed, Voight said, “The letter says everything I need to say and I don’t want to diffuse what the words say in the letter.”"
