Days After Oscar Winner Shocks America

Days After Oscar Winner Shocks America – Hundreds of Hollywood Stars Make Unexpected Move

Last weekend, Hollywood hosted the Oscars. The once-beloved event has been met with criticism in recent years. Many Americans have stopped watching, as the show often becomes a platform for celebrities to spread their political views.

And, at least once, it happened again. Jonathan Glazer won an Oscar for his film “The Zone of Interest.” During his speech, he slammed Israel over its war with Hamas.

The filmmaker seemed to spread the same anti-Israel views held by far-left progressives and Palestinian groups. Soon after he gave his speech, however, a group of over 450 Hollywood actors and workers issued a response. These Jewish Americans were not pleased with Glazer’s claims.

From Fox News:
Top Hollywood stars like Debra Messing and Julianna Margulies are among over 450 Jewish individuals in the entertainment industry denouncing “The Zone of Interest” director Jonathan Glazer’s controversial Oscars acceptance speech about the Israel-Hamas war.

“We refute our Jewishness being hijacked for the purpose of drawing a moral equivalence between a Nazi regime that sought to exterminate a race of people, and an Israeli nation that seeks to avert its own extermination…”

Famous Hollywood stars joined over 450 employees in the film industry to denounce Jonathan Glazer’s anti-Israel Oscars speech. They slammed the director, claiming he “hijacked” their Jewishness to compare Nazi Germany to current-day Israel.

They went on to expose Glazer’s use of words like “occupation” to describe Israel’s presence in the region. Palestinians and other anti-Israel groups claim Israel is wrongfully occupying the land—to claim Palestinians are “oppressed” and “enslaved.”

These Jewish Americans rejected those claims, reasserting that the Jewish people are “indigenous” to that region, which has been their homeland for “thousands of years.” They defended Israel’s war with Hamas saying they are “defending” their homeland.

This group explained that “the moment Hamas releases the hostages and surrenders” the war would end. It is odd how anti-Israel groups conveniently forget that Hamas started this war. Their rhetoric against Israel seems to imply that the Jews are wrong to defend their land; that they should have just let a terror group kill 1,200 of their civilians.

The letter defended Israel’s actions, pointing out it was “not targeting civilians” but this evil terror group. It seems the mainstream media and progressives have ignored that.

Key Takeaways:

  • Over 450 Hollywood actors and industry employees signed a letter slamming Jonathan Glazer’s speech.
  • The director attacked Israel during the Oscars ceremony.
  • This group of Jewish Americans defended Israel’s war and reasserted its right to exist.
