Nicole Kidman and 84 Others Are Against Terrorism

August 18th, 2006 // 18 Comments

Thanks goodness. Here I was all along worried that Nicole Kidman was one of those celebrities who supports terrorism. She and a slew of other Hollywood heavyweights took out a full page advertisement in the Los Angeles Times, and the they single out such terrorist organizations 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.”

She is thankfully not alone in her stand against terrorism. Others on the list of supporters included in the advertisement are Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt. Directors Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Michael Mann, Dick Donner and Sam Raimi also signed their names.

Now, Kelly Preston bestowed her support for the letter, but where was her husband John Travolta’s support? Do we assume he’s pro-terrorism? What about Nicole’s exhusband Tom Cruise? Well, he probably thinks that the world’s differences should be solved with high doses of vitamins.

Photos of Nicole Kidman, the anti-terror actress, are after the jump.

    The same can also be said for Serena’s sister Venus. Where’s her signature? Or Nicole’s current husband, Keith Urban? Regardless, it’s nice to know there are some in Hollywood that support the fight against terrorisim.

    These actors and actresses aren’t suggesting that those opposed to their stance are then pro-terrorism. What they are saying is that they are pro-democracy, and that they support the idea that democracies foster peace which is, and has always been, the philosophy of the Bush administration and the strategy of the global War on Terror.

    What they are saying is that they support the War on Terror, and they are trying to give that viewpoint a voice in the public realm.

  3. I’ll sleep better at night knowing that Pat Sajak signed this. Once you have the Wheel of Fortune fans, you have the world.

    This document does little to dispel my theory that Vivica A. Fox actually is a terrorist, though.

    ====== What would the democrats do different? John Kerry couldn’t make up his mind about certain issues. ===== Where would we be now if he was in office? He never stated what he was going to do about terrorism.=======

    Phew, here I was all worried that some of these people were harboring Hezbollah members in their basements and helping them build bombs. Snort.

    Why is it that celebs are so full of themselves that they think they even matter in the war on terror. It’s laughable.

    ChristopherM, your comment made me shoot rootbeer out my nose. Pat Sajak……hilarious!

    What I find ridiculous, is that people define Hezbollah and Hamas as terrorist organizations, when in fact, the one who are making terrorist acts is Israel!!! Hezbollah is part of the lebanese government, and they are the only ones defending Lebanese people , since Israel has been occupying Lebanon for the last 30 years!! and Hamas was democratically elected!! And all they do, is defend themselves from everyday’s Israel attacks! What is also ridiculous is celebrities endorsing something they don’t know SHIT about…

    Thank you SmallFry!

    And PageBetty, I’m not sure what you mean. What would John Kerry have done differently than Nicole Kidman? For starters he probably would never have made that regrettable “Bewitched” movie. He has some standards, after all.

    What is this bull??? Of course im against any kind of killing of innocent civilians, but for god sakes those dumb celebrities and AGAINST the Lebanese?? especially after Israel has bombarded their country and killed thousands upon thousands of innocent men, women and children? Besides, The Hesbollah is NOT a terrorist organization, they are a DEFENCE organization whos only mistake is to strike Israel when their own ppl were being held hostage over there. From that one little attack, all hell broke loose and Israel decided to blow up all bridges and roads for all civials to be unable to escape, not to mention destroying the airport! Once that is done, all innocent ppl have become easy targets.

    “List of people against terrorism”?? my a$$! it should be called “List of people who are FOR the attacks Israel has done on the Lebanese”

    Thankyou sweetsugarmamma, you totally said what i needed to say….I cannot believe their eues cannot see the truth….how can the the DEFENDERS be terrorists ???? I really pity their simple knowlege and folded eyes.

    What is wrong with you morons. Hezbollah and Hamas sponsor and direct attacks against civilians in Israel. Israel has NEVER attacked either organization or any country without having FIRST been attacked by that country or group. And often it takes SEVERAL attacks before ISrael responds. The Lebanese people are victims only of their unwillingness to stand up against the animals within their society. Hamas and Hezbollah are just puppets for Syria and Iran who have a political agenda and profit from the death of the “fellow Arabs and Muslims” they propose to side with. Look at today. Fellow ARABS were killing Shiite pilgrims in Iraq in order to cause panick and undermine democracy there. So get a grip. Hamas and Hezbollah are terrorists who attack Israel and then cry about how evil Israel is for retaliating. I have personally seen Israel turn the other cheek at least 5 times in the last 15 years. If Israel has finally had enough, so be it. I hope they kill all the Hamas and Hezbollah fighters they can. In the long run, it will save both Israeli AND Arab lives.

    Wake up. Israel is a terrorist state which raped and pillaged first Palestine and now Lebanon. It has a long record of breaking UN and other international agreements and is constantly finding innovative ways to humiliate and torture the people living under its occupation. Now that is terrorism. Hezbollah and hamas are organizations which build schools, run charities and feed the hungry as well as resisting the tyranny of israel. I don’t blame those who don’t know these things as they are ignorant. I do blame the mainstream media, such as CNN, for covering up the truth and not showing all sides of a story. Just watch, listen to or read online the BBC or the Independent or the Christian Science Monitor or even Salon.com. Investigate for yourself who exactly is the terrorist.

    Well said Hiba! These americans are totally brain washed as to what’s really going on in the middle east.

    Israel holds thousands of Lebanese and Palestinians in there prisons including women and children. The only thing that has worked in the past for the safe return of prisoners is a prisoner swap. So Hezbollah captures two soldiers hoping for a prisoner swap, BUT instead Israel completely destroys Lebanon. They pass out flyers warning people to leave their homes, but how do you expect people to get away when you’ve destroyed the main bridges that lead out of town. The end result was that over 1000 civilians died.

    Explain to me how Hezbollah targets civilians when Israel has killed more than 20 times the civlians that Hezbollah has?

    Democratically elected Hamas officials of Palestine are being captured every day in cross border incursions by Israel. Does this give Palestine the right to destroy Israel?

    If Israel is a state founded on democracy, then why were jews only allowed in the bomb shelters?

    I for one totally agree with Hiba and Khan. These people have no idea what is truly going on due to the fact that the truth is always hidden from them. As Hiba said, Israel has destroyed and murdered people, such as Palestine and often get away with it. I for one speak from experience. My father’s town in Palestine was destroyed and taken over by Isreal. My own father was forced out of his home. And yet, we are called terrorists? Excuse me for not agreeing with dumb celebreties that have no idea what they are talking about. I’d appreciate it that people, such as Nicole Kidman, should shut up and just act. Obviously they have no idea what is going on and before they even attempt to speak out on such issues, they should first do their homework and get the facts straight. I am sick and tired of everyone shutting up about how Palestinians and the Lebanease are such terrorists. Open your eyes and look at everything. Listen to people, read articles, go on the internet and research the history of violence that Israel has swooped on the two contries and how others (such as the UN) manage to just sweep it under the rug. I think the true terrorists behind everything is Israel. And yes, I agree with Mel Gibson’s comment when he said “Israel is the cause of all wars.” Don’t condemn Mel for being brutally honest. I admire him for actually opening up and having the courage to even say this despite the idiots out there who choose to close their eyes and be selective at what they know.

    the only thing i want to add is tha nicole and the rest of actors out there know the truth about israel and all its horrible crimes but because most of hollywood directors ane producers are jews these actors choose to sell themselves to the devil and you all know what i mean.

    The problem began long ago when the Arabs refused a Jewish state among their midst. They accept it and there is no wars, no occupation, and no Hamas. I would like to ask one thing to all the Israel haters. Do you honestly think there would be a Weizmann Institute, Bar-Ilan and Hebrew University, and other great schools of learning if your wonderful Palestinians had control of Israel or Palestine? Not a chance. It would be nothing -like Gaza is nothing. Can anyone see the Palestinians sending doctors and nurses and other medical teams to Haiti or Turkey? Yeah sure!!

    Does that mean HAMAS terrorism or terrorism in general- what’s Ms,Kidman’s stance on Irish Republican terrorism- or does she hold a soft spot for”the boys”?
