Stars Face Hollywood Backlash
in War of Words Over Israel

Hollywood Reporter, by Tina Daunt and Tatiana Siegel

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 8/6/2014 5:57:24 PM

When the latest battle in Gaza finally is over, as someday it will be, hard feelings could linger in the corner offices of Hollywood toward the stars who have voiced anti-Israel sentiments. But will the artists who criticize Israel military strikes -- particularly married Spaniards Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, who accused the country of "genocide" in a widely circulated July 25 letter -- suffer career backlash in a town whose power brokers tend to be strong supporters of Israel? So far, Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh is the only studio head willing to go public with his disgust. "As the

Comments:
You´ll never eat lunch in this town again.

Article says that´s true to a point but it is the audience that matters - if moviegoers stay away from them in droves, it will finally get the message across.

Video showing Hamas shooting missles and rockets out of people´s homes and children´s schools and forcing the civilians to go up on the roof to stop Israel from fighting back. Look and see it for yourselves and stop lying to yourselves and others about what´s really going on.

I have a lot of trouble believing that support for Israel, even among Hollywood´s Jewish execs, is all that strong, there´s a lot of self-hating low-information "peace now" types around too.

Still I welcome the story, as if it were true.

Cruz and Bardem have been lucky- they didn´t appreciate it.
Easy to boycott these two along with a Clooney, Penn, Glover, Morgan Freeman,Jamie Foxx Oprah, Spielberg, Weinstein etc etc etc.
Supporting Obama and Hamas -priceless.

Why is anyone surprised that Bardem and Cruz are anti-Semitic? The Spaniards have had a strong history of anti-Semitism since the Middle Ages. Even their religious literature shows it. St. Theresa of Avila and San Juan de la Cruz were persecuted by the Inquisition because they were suspected of being cryptic Jews. Bardem and Cruz are just doing what has been in their collective hearts and consciousness for centuries. Expose it for what it is.

U.N. calls for decriminalization

Santiago Tiimes [Chile], by Staff    Original Article

As part of a visit to Chile assessing the country’s treatment of women’s rights reform, a team of U.N. experts published a report on Wednesday expressing support for the legalization of abortion under special circumstances for girls younger than 18 years of age. U.N. human rights experts Frances Raday and Alda Facio arrived in Chile last week to urge the government to enact reform aimed at increasing women’s political participation, protecting them from domestic violence and decreasing teenage pregnancy, among other issues. “Chile finds itself at an opportune moment in which it has the economic capacity and the political will to make

Mark Sanford´s fiancée
surprised by break-up

The very public break-up between Rep. Mark Sanford and his fiancée came as a surprise to his fiancée, who told the New York Times on Saturday that she learned about it from the media. Maria Belen Chapur told the Times that she had spent time with Sanford in Paris last week. Chapur had such a wonderful time during their time in France that she felt it was like a “honeymoon,” she said. But then she learned Saturday that Sanford had written a 2,400-plus word post on Facebook announcing his intention to break up with her. “I learned it from the press today,”

The front page of today’s New York Times features an article titled Paths to War, Then and Now, Haunt Obama. It is an exercise in journalism as a hall of mirrors. The article, by Peter Baker, is “based on interviews with 10 people who spoke with [Obama] in the days leading up to his speech Wednesday night.” These conversations occurred on two occasions: a dinner at the White House for “a group of foreign policy experts and former government officials,” and a separate discussion with a “group of columnists and magazine writers.” Baker’s article includes extensive quotes by President Obama,

Immigration: When California Gov. Jerry Brown hung out the "all welcome" sign for illegals, Mexico´s drug cartels heard him loud and clear. Raids on Thursday left lawmen declaring Los Angeles a cash-laundering mecca. Roping off 100 blocks of downtown Los Angeles this week, federal agents from the U.S. attorney´s office raided roughly 70 garment district businesses along with a few houses in tony Westwood and Beverly Hills. The suspected crime was laundering money for Mexico´s Sinaloa cartel. Agents hauled out $65 million in cash stuffed in duffel bags, suitcases and boxes, some of it blood-spattered.

Silverado Fire: Mandatory Evacuations
Ordered as 1,600 Acres Charred
in Cleveland National Forest
KTLA-TV [Los Angeles, CA], by Tracy Bloom*    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 9/13/2014 3:14:16 AM     Post Reply
As temperatures soared Friday, a brush fire burning in the mountains of Cleveland National Forest south of Corona grew to 1,600 acres, sending a plume of smoke towering above Silverado Canyon that was visible from miles away. Mandatory evacuations started at 6 p.m. for the area from 30331 Silverado Canyon Road east to the end of the canyon, authorities. That order was issued in part because of expected nighttime downslope winds that could push the flames into populated areas in the canyon bottom, Battalion Chief Mike Petro said. Brush left very dry by the state’s historic drought had created heavy fuels that were burning

On a daily basis, numerous street vendors and performers can be found throughout Lima trying to make ends meet. Whether they are juggling or dancing at intersections or perhaps offering to wash a car, it can be assumed that these individuals have little to no fixed income. It is becoming increasingly likely as well that they are foreigners. On Wednesday, authorities decided that the issue of foreigners who have arrived to Lima illegally needed to be resolved. In such districts as Miraflores, San Isidro, and Central Lima, a total of 32 male and 10 female foreigners were detained. Those rounded up by the police were natives of Argentina,

Chile´s military coup anniversary

MercoPress [Montevideo, Uruguay], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 9/13/2014 1:27:52 AM     Post Reply
“In Chile there´s no room, and there can be no room, for violence or fear,” President Michelle Bachelet said Thursday at a ceremony commemorating the 41st anniversary of the 1973 military coup and several days after a bomb blast injured 14 people in this capital. The 17-year military dictatorship remains controversial and a rift in Chilean society. The ceremony, held in the La Moneda presidential palace, was attended by representatives of various social and political organizations, including Senate leader Isabel Allende, the daughter of then-President Salvador Allende, who took his own life during the putsch led by

Argentina is heading towards social outbreak due to soaring inflation, head of the anti-government CGT Azul y Blanca labor confederation Luis Barrionuevo said in statements that have already sparked controversy. “President (Cristina Fernández) said that if inflation reached 25% Argentina would burst, and we will be reaching 40% of inflation (soon),” Barrionuevo told reporters on Thursday as he warned conflict will flare up in December. “Who predicted what is coming is President (Cristina Fernandez) herself,” the union leader insisted adding that “our time is not politicians’ time.”

Fast-moving brush fire in the parched hills of Cleveland National Forest grew to more than 350 acres in less than three hours Friday, fueled by tinder-dry vegetation and steep, hard-to-reach terrain. The so-called Silverado fire was first reported at 10:32 a.m. in the Cleveland National Forest in the near 30500 block of Silverado Canyon Road. Hot weather was fueling flames as they moved up mountain slopes, consuming chaparral and oak trees “that had not burned in several years,” Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Larry Kurtz said. “The fire is burning up to the ridge lines, which is where we hope to stop

Hillary Clinton is widely considered, should she enter the 2016 presidential race, the Democratic front runner. But the former secretary of state is shrinking rather than building an already limited website presence. Sometime within the last two months, Hillaryclintonoffice.com quietly removed the only substantive content featured on her website, a set a remarks from three events from early 2013. The home page of the site that included a "remarks" button in addition to the "contact" button vanished sometime between July 23 and August 27 as these images show: Mrs. Clinton launched the website within a week of concluding her tenure as

SANTIAGO - Chile´s Congress approved President Michelle Bachelet´s tax reform bill on Wednesday evening, the first key part of the center-left leader´s tax-and-spend campaign pledge to reduce inequality. The reform, which will increase the cost of doing business in Chile by raising corporate taxes and closing some tax exemptions, had been fiercely opposed by right-wing politicians and business leaders, who say it will crimp investment at a time when economic growth is slowing. The government says the extra cash it will bring in - equivalent to about 3 percentage points of gross domestic product by 2018 - is needed to pay

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life.

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

And she is reviewing who’s who in the Democratic Party in Iowa, a crucial early voting state in the presidential cycle.

But inside the Clinton operation, the groundwork is already quietly being laid for a candidacy. On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton will appear at the 37th annual Iowa steak fry hosted by Senator Tom Harkin;

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.
