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.

Avengers: Endgame ties for highest Rotten Tomatoes score of all MCU movies

Avengers Endgame ties for highest Rotten Tomatoes score of all MCU movies

There’s a little movie coming out this weekend. You may have heard of it. Avengers: Endgame is set to break records and (nearly) conclude this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s eleven year run.

Critics love it.

Based on its score on movie review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes, the culmination of the infinity stone saga is the best yet, tied with Black Panther at 97% “fresh.”

Opinion

Fans of the MCU are in for a treat, though bittersweet it might be. This movie is expected to bring a close to many of the storylines that have dominated summer blockbusters for over a decade, which means we’re sure to have a heart-wrenching experience that will also deliver vindication in ways movies are rarely able to achieve.

But I’m glad. This may be the level of distraction that Hollywood has always been tasked to deliver, but it’s also the bane of entertainment when such films make so much money they choke out the artistic aspect of movie-making. I hate to sound like a movie snob, but I’m glad to see this chapter, which has sucked all the air out of movie theaters for a decade, finally come to a close.

The mold won’t be broken, but there’s going to be a major challenge by all studios to duplicate the insane level of success the franchise has achieved. This bodes ill for the future of Hollywood as we’re bound to see poor attempts to live up to the world-building challenge the MCU seems to have mastered. Even those who continue forward will have a difficult time matching this level of success both critically and at the box office.

In other words, this is the end of an era.

Quote

“The MCU sticks this landing, allowing us to let go of years of baggage and get ready for the next flight.” – John Wenzel

Final Thoughts

It’s going to be hard for Disney to capture this level of movie magic again as they continue to build on the MCU. Frankly, I’m pretty sure they won’t be able to match what they’ve accomplished with these 22 films.

Petition Capitol Hill for Term Limits

Sign the petition. We demand Congress immediately put together legislation that spells out term limits for themselves. Americans need to know who is willing to suppress their own power for the sake of the nation. This can only happen by bringing legislation to the floor.

Game of Thrones Final Season Episode 2 Review

Published

Game of Thrones Final Season Episode 2 Review

As with episode’s one’s review there is no promise of keeping free of spoilers. In fact there is nothing to spoil. Last week’s episode was gritty in a political thriller sort of way as the divided North became the main focus. Episode 2 takes place in the limbo period between the preparation episode and the battle itself. It served as a second preparation episode that was unnecessary filler between two important events. In practice, I like to keep these reviews free of shiny objects and focus on the more analytical aspects of the show, but those were few and far between.

Verdict: Episode 2 was a hollow turd.

Ser Jaime

Ser Jaime Lannister is the MVP of this episode, having the only interesting opportunities continuing throughout the script, but still failed to depict, accurately, Jaime’s character once more. Jaime opens up on “trial” before his former enemies. In truth, Jaime, blurring the lines between sarcastic and serious, regards slaying Mad King Areys II as his “finest deed.” He regrets little, but that which he regrets are the deeds of concealing his (past) love for Cersei, like throwing a child out of a tower, and [spoiler alert] lying to Tyrion about his first wife Tysha being a whore. The latter is an increasingly frustrating deviation that not only undermines Jaime’s character development but has paved the way for HBO to emasculate Tyrion Lannister, metaphorically speaking as opposed to the literal emasculating of Theon Greyjoy. In confronting Daenerys, Jaime was not as defiant enough to make an interesting confrontation better. Instead this was undermined by the power struggle between Daenerys and Sansa, denying a far richer scene where Jaime declares that he saved half a million people. During the drinking scene that resembled previous buildups before battles, Jaime’s character could have amended the Tysha deviation. This hope was unrealized; however, the episode’s best scene was the knighting of Brienne of Tarth, a misfit too ugly to be a lady but unable to be a knight. “Any knight can make a knight” is a well-known Westerosi saying.

Lack of Military Realism

The show goes out of its way to paint incompetent characters like Sansa and Daenerys as quality leaders. Last week, was the first time characters acknowledged how selfish Daenerys is. Sansa is the last person on the show you want as a “wartime president.” Very few remaining characters in Game of Thrones can play the game and command an army. Jon Snow is one. Tyrion is a second, but the show has made him irredeemably stupid. Jaime refused the game but technically has a winning record as a commanding officer. Bronze Yohn Royce was technically featured in the episode and can do both. Daenerys is probably better at military command than playing politics, but when you have dragons, it takes far less skill, Aegon the Conquerer proved as much. Last weeks episode delved into the logistics of war. That was virtually undone in this episode.

For instance Brienne of Tarth is given command of the left flank. Looking closely at the war maps, the left flank featured the knights of the Vale. Instead of having Lord Yohn Royce, a season military commander who fought in Robert’s Rebellion, the Greyjoy Rebellion, led the winning cavalry charge in the Battle of the Bastards, has the loyalty of his men as the most powerful lord in the Vale, the show has Brienne of Tarth command the Vale’s force. Brienne of Tarth has fought one battle, at most! She has never led an army and has no ties to the Vale. The only thing dumber than giving her command of the Vale would be giving her command of the Dothraki, who I believe are on the right flank, the place of honor in ancient Greek culture (perhaps relevant). It’s not that Brienne of Tarth is unworthy of any command, they simply chose the second least believable place for her to lead.

Prepubescent Sex Scene

This is not the poorest written sex scene in Game of Thrones, that still belongs to Sansa being married off to Ramsay Bolton, one of the worst plot deviations from the books. Arya having sex with Gendry was up there though. Arya is eleven when the show starts. A year has passed, no doubt, maybe two, but not anything beyond three which would barely put her at fourteen, at most. It’s not the combo, it’s the age. Arya is a child, not a sensual woman. The show has unrealistically aged these characters. Heck, why didn’t they recast Gilly’s [Mance’s] son? They’ve had over three Mountains, two Dario Naharises (both poorly casted), two Myrscella Baratheons, and I’m sure there are others.

Only Meaning

The only meaning in the episode that was of any worth was Bran revealing the motive of the White Walkers to erase the memory of mankind. There was no buildup and little foreshadow towards this reveal. Game of Thrones is all about placing mysteries on the backburner (who really killed Jon Arryn) but this was a little rushed.

Final Thoughts

This episode was less worthwhile than watching the first three episodes of Star Wars. You could have missed episode 2 and have gone straight to episode 3 and you would have missed nothing that wasn’t known already. I’m not saying this was the worst Game of Thrones episode ever but its down there.

World made dumber by leftist Lil Dicky ‘Earth’ video

World made dumber by leftist Lil Dicky Earth video

This is perhaps the worst song I’ve heard since the Mo Bama song. Music has truly descended into the cultural depths never ventured by previous generations. This is not art, rather its propaganda complied by the biggest names in the Pop/Rap music and whomever Lil Dicky is. The song is a call for action to stop climate change but is perhaps the least compelling argument for action I’ve ever seen. If this is what planet earth, sign us up for SpaceX trip to Mars.

One sign of trash music is autotune, because talented musicians never use autotune. But the only compelling reason this song offer for saving the earth is imminent danger that prevents male ejaculation and female orgasms. But the premise of the song is a lie. Human are not threatened by climate change. Forest fires in California result from poor forestry management. Warmer weather has historically been a net gain for almost every civilization in human history. It means increased yields in agriculture. The song is also not premised in real chronology. America is the leading nation reducing emissions despite not participating in the Paris Climate Accords. China and India, the two nations specifically called out in a superficially endearing way, are the leading polluters. The ocean garbage we hear about is not from America. And the Paris Climate Accords wanted to give them money. These celebrities joined forces to shame people who are not threatened by that which cannot kill us is yet. The song celebrates debauchery.

The lyrics read as though written by a middle schooler after sex ed class. “Earth” is trash and Lil Dicky is untalented. I’ve posted the lyrics so that you do not simply take my word for it.

Lyrics

[Intro: Lil Dicky ]
What up, world? It’s your boy, just one of the guys down here. Well, I could be more specific. Uh, I’m a human, and I just wanted to, for the sake of all of us earthlings out there, just wanted to say:

[Chorus]
We love the Earth, it is our planet
We love the Earth, it is our home
We love the Earth, it is our planet
We love the Earth, it is our home

[Justin Bieber]
Hi, I’m a baboon
I’m like a man, just less advanced and my anus is huge

[Ariana Grande]
Hey, I’m a zebra
No one knows what I do, but I look pretty cool
Am I white or black?

[Halsey]
I’m a lion cub, and I’m always getting licked (Meow!)

[Zac Brown]
How’s it going? I’m a cow (Moo!)
You drink milk from my tits (Moo)

[Brendon Urie]
I’m a fat, fucking pig

[Hailee Steinfeld]
I’m a common fungus

[Wiz Khalifa]
I’m a disgruntled skunk, shoot you out my butthole

[Snoop Dogg]
I’m a marijuana plant, I can get you fucked up

[Kevin Hart]
And I’m Kanye West

[Chorus]
We love the Earth, it is our planet
We love the Earth, it is our home
We love the Earth, it is our planet
We love the Earth, it is our home
We love the Earth

[Adam Levine]
Ba-dum-da-dum-dum, ba-dum-da-di
We are the vultures, feed on the dead

[Shawn Mendes]
We’re just some rhinos, horny as heck

[Charlie Puth]
I’m just a giraffe, what’s with this neck?

[Sia]

[Rita Ora]
I’m a wolf. Howl!

[Miguel]
I’m a squirrel, lookin’ for my next nut

[Katy Perry]
And I’m a pony, just a freak horse, heh-heh-heh
But, uh, c’mon, get on (Yah)
Giddee-up, let’s ride

[Lil Yachty]
I’m HPV, don’t let me in

[Ed Sheeran]
I’m a koala and I sleep all the time
So what? It’s cute

[Meghan Trainor]
We love you, India

[Joel Embiid]
We love you, Africa

[Tory Lanez]
We love the Chinese

[ Lil Dicky ]
We forgive you, Germany

[Chorus: Lil Dicky, (Snoop Dogg), Meghan Trainor, Lil Dicky & Sia, John Legend]
Earth, it is our planet (It’s our planet)
We love the Earth (We love the Earth), it is our home (Home)
We love the Earth, it is our planet (It is our planet)
We love the Earth, it is our home
We love the Earth

[Verse 3: Lil Dicky ]
I’m a man (Hello?)
Can you hear me? (Anyone out there? Hello?)
I’ve trudged the Earth for so damn long
And still don’t know shit (What’s going on?)
I hope it’s not a simulation (Huh)
Give each other names like Ahmed and Pedro
And, yeah, we like to wear clothes, girls still look beautiful
And it covers up our human dick (Woo), eat a lot of tuna fish
But these days, it’s like we don’t know how to act
All these shootings, pollution, we under attack on ourselves
Like, let’s all just chill (Hey), respect what we built (Hey)
Like look at the internet! It’s cracking as hell
Fellas, don’t you love the cum when you have sex? (Ayy)
And I heard women orgasms are better than a dick (Uh)
So what we got this land for? What we gotta stand for?
Love, and we love the Earth (The Earth)

[Ariana Grande]
Oh, yeah, baby, I love the Earth
I love this planet

[ Lil Dicky ]
Hey, Russia, we’re cool
Hey, Asia, all of you, c’mon
Every one of you from the plains to the Sahara
Let’s come together and live

[Choir]
Hum-dum-dum-dae-dum, hum-dum-dum-dae-dum

[PSY]
우-우-우리는 지구를 사랑해요

[Bad Bunny]
Amamos la tierra

[Kris Wu]
我们爱地球

[ Lil Dicky ]
(We love you, we love you)
C’mon everybody, I know we’re not all the same
But we’re living on the same Earth
(We love you, we love you)

[Ariana Grande]
Have you ever been to Earth?

[ Lil Dicky ]
Everyone who is listening has been to Earth, Ariana
(We love you, we love you)
We’re not making music for aliens here

[Justin Bieber]
Are we gonna die?

[ Lil Dicky ]
You know what, Bieber? We might die
(We love you, we love you)
I’m not going to lie to you
I mean, there’s so many people out here who don’t believe Global Warming’s a real thing. You know? We gotta save this planet. We’re being stupid

[Ariana Grande]
Unless we get our shit together now

Final Thoughts- if you bothered to read through this garbage

This song also enhances the most pagan notion of love that is both superficial and unfulfilling. If you are interested in real love, know that Jesus suffered for our sins. Know that life has more meaning that the base desires presented in this song. God has a plan for those who know Him.
