Nicole says Enough is Enough.

Thursday, August 17, 2006


Just when I did not think they had them it in them a bunch of Hollywood stars with Nicloe Kidman in the lead take out an ad condemning terrorism. Here is the link in full from the Herald Sun.



NICOLE Kidman has made a public stand against terrorism.

The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today's Los Angeles Times newspaper.

It specifically targets "terrorist organisations" such 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."

A who's who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.

The actors listed included: 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.

Other Hollywood powerplayers supporting the ad included Sumner Redstone, the chairman and majority owner of Paramount Pictures, and billionaire mogul, Haim Saban.

Rick,
It is hard for the poor dears,their management and insurance companies won't let them fly to exotic locations,you can't expect them to spend their lives moping around down town Burbank.

I’m a cynic. Follow the money. I can see it all now. We’ll get a sequel to:

Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Instead of Slim Pickens straddling the bomb we’ll get Sharon Stone.

Peter,

It puts me in mind of Hollywood's change of heart after the troubling collapse of the Molotov Ribbentrop Pact. If it concluded with: "Therefore, the undersigned declare their support for the GWOT." It would carry a bit more weight. There are a few names among those mentioned that don't fit.

Yeesh, what is the world coming to. I followed the link at Instapundit, which takes one to Australia's Herald Sun and discovered Buddhist monks brawl at peace protest where I learned there are hardline saffron-robed monks opposed to concessions to Tamil Tiger rebels who say the government is too soft on the rebels and want military action.

If we warmongers now have Nicole and some hope of turning Richard Gere then we'll have 2/3 of Chicago. Maybe there is hope, after all, that the non-Islamic world will someday decide to bother defending itself. Has anybody called Europe and notified them of this? Not that I'd expect Europe to decide anything is worth defending but they might want to at least hold some conferences to prepare a position paper should anything come of it.

PUK, you old cynic.
I find it remarkable that this statement is considered remarkable.

Sumner is weird. After allowing his companies to bash Bush 24/7 he said he voted for him..and now this. Maybe he's caught on that terrorism is bad for business.

They have discovered that being a socialist multi-millionaire is no longer a talismen against the new foe,hell,some of these jihadis haven't even got any money let alone membership of the socialist international...a few of them are quite dangerous.

Maybe they are beginning to realize that these folks mean business. Sometimes it takes awhile.
