Celebrities who are pro-Israel

Celebrities who are pro-Israel

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement has plenty of money flowing in, mostly from Europe, to pressure businesses and investors from engaging with Israeli organizations in an effort to isolate the Jewish state from the rest of the world. Their stated hope is that Israel can be pressured into abandoning “occupied” lands, but many at the top of the movement understand that doing so will eventually lead to the disruption of Israel as a nation and the birth of a dominate Palestinian state.

While more politicians and prominent corporate figures are starting to shift their views on the BDS movement, the majority of exposure to the movement comes in the form of entertainment. They realize they have an uphill road to climb before Americans treat Israel the way most of the rest of the world does, so they’re targets are the celebrities they feel influence us the most.

It’s becoming difficult for major celebrities to openly embrace Israel, especially if they have an international audience. But some celebrities are swimming against the current by openly declaring their support for America’s only true ally in the Middle East.

This list was much harder to put together than I thought it would be because there are conflicting views. Some celebrities, such as Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, are on both pro-Israel and pro-BDS lists. This contradiction is partially reconciled by shifting views or tempered responses that support Israel while also showing support for Palestinians, but there also seems to be misinformation campaigns out there that try to list celebrities who are clearly pro-Israel as being pro-BDS over isolated comments. If a celebrity pronounces their support for Israel but cancels an appearance over security concerns, that doesn’t mean they’re suddenly BDS supporters, but that’s how some are being painted.

This list is gathered and cross-referenced to more sources than I can list. At any point, some of these celebrities may have changed sides, so be sure to check the most recent reports before assuming they’re still pro-Israel.

This list is important because those of us who support Israel’s right to exist and operate as a sovereign nation should be aware of which celebrities share our views. We didn’t include some prominent names that simply made an appearance in Israel unless they made their support for the nation public. It’s better to be certain rather than make assumptions.

So, here’s the list in no particular order…

Simon Cowell

Celebrities who are pro-Israel

Donated $150,000 to the Friends of Israeli Defense Forces that pays for education and care of Israeli troops and supports families of fallen soldiers.

Jenna Jameson

Jenna Jameson Israel

The Jewish former porn star has been a thorn in the sides of leftists for years. She’s not only pro-Israel but also politically conservative.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

The regularly newsworthy power couple have had their children baptized in Jerusalem. Kardashian learned how dangerous it can be to support the Jewish state after a Tweet saying she was “praying for Israel” after Hamas rocket attacks. The onslaught of hateful messages, including death threats, compelled her to delete her Tweet.

Jean-Claude Van Damme

Jean-Claude Van Damme Israel

Following a controversial Facebook post that showed him in Jerusalem in which he said, “Hello from Israel,” the martial arts actor later changed the caption to appease the hordes crowding his comment feed. While it was a backtrack from his original support, we’ll assume his presence in the nation and his original post reflected his feelings, and his subsequent edit was simply to not cause trouble.

Ashton Kutcher and Gerard Butler

Ashton Kutcher and Gerard Butler Israel

What do actors Ashton Kutcher and Gerard Butler have to do with one another? They appeared together at the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces that raised $60 million to support soldiers and families in the IDF. Which brings us to one of the performers at the event…

Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams Israel

Williams took a lot of heat from fans and foes alike by performing at the FIDF fundraiser in Los Angeles in 2018.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga Israel

As the push against celebrities going to Israel reached its peak in 2014, Lady Gaga bucked the system, not only performing there but becoming the source of rallies in the states based on her profanity-laden proclamation of affection for Israel.

Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves Israel

If there’s a celebrity who can escape criticism over supporting Israel, it’s Keanu. The John Wick star has visited Israel multiple times and signed his support for Israel in 2014.

Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman Israel

While her support may publicly be more about her Jewish heritage and defending Jews themselves rather than Israel as a nation, she seems to be against Hamas terrorism enough to count as a pro-Israel celebrity.

Bill Maher

Bill Maher Israel

Comedic political talk show host Bill Maher may be the key to getting progressives to understand why Israel exists, how it’s handling the Palestinian situation properly, and why their conflicts with their neighbors are usually no fault of Israel itself. He’s become an icon for the left with his anti-Trump rhetoric finding its way into every show. But his logic wins out, and when it comes to Israel, the only logical way to handle it is to accept and support the nation.

This list is obviously incomplete, but if it does well, we’ll either expand it or post a new list with fresh celebrity faces.

Israel faces political, economic, and militaristic challenges from every side. As the BDS movement continues to pick up steam, it’s good to know there are still some celebrities who are brave enough to go against the flow in their professions.

    Israel is not the only “ally” of the US in the Middl East, there are many other “allies”, or more like subordinates of the US, like the gulf states, Egypt, Kurds…..Israel is the only “MASTER” of American policy in the Middle East.
    All those celebrities who are donating so generously to Israel, they are not doing out of love for Israel, unless they themselves are Zionists. but they are doing it, because the media coverage, the publicity they get, is much bigger. Some even may be getting more contracts. These guys are not stupid, they know where the real money is.

Mashup video of Jussie Smollett and Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson tells a sad story

Mashup video of Jussie Smollett and Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson tells a sad story

Mashup videos are usually intended to be funny. There’s nothing funny about the outrageous alleged actions taken by actor Jussie Smollett in his attempt to garner victim status and increase his pay for the show Empire.

According to police, Smollett first tried to gain sympathy by mailing a letter to the studio threatening himself with a “ransom” to keep him safe. When that didn’t get him the instant status of victimhood through which he could parlay higher pay from the studio, he allegedly paid $3500 to orchestrate a hate-crime stunt that drew so much sympathy from the gullible left that it’s hard to find anything that compares. The outpouring of support from Hollywood, leftist politicians, and mainstream media was immediate and unquestioning.

They were blinded by a desire for the hate they believe exists among supporters for President Trump to actually manifest in a tangible hate crime against a beloved gay black actor. This blinding prevented them from calling into question the inconsistencies and outrageous accusations made by Smollett. All they heard was “bigoted Trump supporters attacked a minority” and the latched onto it as their gospel truth.

Support independent journalism.

It’s very impressive to hear the words of Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson who is clearly outraged by the hoax itself. He is proud of the progress he’s made in Chicago and to falsely attack the city over a desire for more money rightly disgusts the public servant.

This isn’t just a condemnation against Hollywood or the detachment so many actors have with reality. It’s a condemnation on the leftist ideology that has made victimhood a badge of honor to be sought at all costs.

Jussie Smollett arrested, allegedly staged attack to prompt a pay increase

Jussie Smollett arrested allegedly staged attack to prompt a pay increase

Actor Jussie Smollett wasn’t happy with his $65,000 per episode, prompting him to send threatening letters about himself and engage in a hate-hoax to force the studio’s hand, according to Chicago police. The result: he has been arrested and faces multiple felony charges.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson held a press conference this morning to detail their version of events based on the ongoing investigation.

“As a black man who spent his entire life living in the city of Chicago, I know the racial divide that exists here,” Johnson said. “I know how hard it’s been for our city and our nation to come together … How can an individual who’s been embraced by the city of Chicago turn around and slap everyone in this city in the face by making these false claims?”

My Take

Obviously, this is a very disturbed man. His actions should be condemned, but let’s avoid trying to make him the face of progressivism in Hollywood, though the temptation may be very strong. His actions went way above the hatred and rhetoric normally directed at the President and his supporters.

What he did was shameful, but if there’s any lesson to be learned, it’s that the people who are so swift in jumping to conclusions, assuming the worst, and condemning anyone who may or may not have been wearing a MAGA hat must take a step back and examine their worldview. If a story is too juicy to be true, be cautious. There were oddities from the beginning with Smollett’s story, yet the hyper-leftists didn’t blink before condemning the “incident” as an example of what happens when you have a President like Trump.

Smollett is a symptom of a rapidly spreading illness taking over leftists in this nation. They only see what they want to see, which means truth is relative. If it fits their worldview, they go all in. Then, they double down. America needs to contend with this bias.

Jussie Smollett charged

Published

on

Jussie Smollett is officially suspected by Chicago PD of committing a felony

Update: Charged.

Original Story:

Chicago police had made official what many have anticipated for several days. Alleged hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett is now suspected of filing a false police report, a class 4 felony. There may be other crimes being investigated as well.

My Take

Now is not the time for Trump supporters to gloat whether we want to or not. We need to be sober and take the high ground in our rebukes against leftist media, celebrities, and politicians who rushed to judgment in supporting Smollett’s claims but who are now suddenly more cautious about denouncing them as a hoax.

Smollett is a mess. It would be easy to feel at least a little pity for him if he were to come out and admit what he did. Instead, his lawyers are still claiming that he is the victim here despite mounting evidence that he was actually trying to fool the world.

His crimes may end up being filing a false police report and/or mail fraud, but his real crime was stoking the ongoing fires of false outrage directed at conservatives across the nation. There has been damage done and Smollett may be one of the causes.
