Jon Voight slams Penelope Cruz And Javier Bardem

jon-voight Even though Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz have clarified their reasons for signing an open letter denouncing Israeli military action in Gaza, saying they just want peace and end of the Israel/Palestine conflict, Jon Voight has accused the couple of inciting anti-Semitism.

In an open letter for Hollywood Reporter, Voight wrote: “My name is Jon Voight and I am more than angry, I am heartsick that people like Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem could incite anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage they have caused…”

He continues: “I am asking all my peers who signed that poison letter against Israel to examine their motives. Can you take back the fire of anti-Semitism that is raging all over the world now? You have been able to become famous and have all your monetary gains because you are in a democratic country: America. Do you think you would have been able to accomplish this in Iran, Syria, Lebanon, et cetera?

You should hang your heads in shame. You should all come forth with deep regrets for what you did, and ask forgiveness from the suffering people in Israel.”
