Hollywood Takes A Stand - It's Not What You Think

Nicole Kidman took out a full-page ad in Los Angeles Times yesterday (it also ran in Variety and the Hollywood Reporter). The content of which is the type of statement we havn't seen in the entertainkment industry since WWII. The statement reads as follows:
“We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and Hamas.
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.”

83 Members of the Hollywood community of artists joined Nicole Kidman in support of this statement and all are to be commended in their courage in the endorsement of the obvious. Islamo-Fascist terror must be met with a very strong and un-mistakable response.
