Re: .(Penelope Cruz, husband Javier Bardem write open letter calling Israel’s actions ‘genocide’; NY Daily News
When people step out of their sphere of familiarity and take on a cause with a background of sheer ignorance, they just can’t connect los puntos (the dots)! Ay, que lastima (what a pity)! Such is the case of Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, director Pedro Almodovar and others.
These “voices of justice,” 100 Spanish activists who have just awakened from a stupor, speak out for the poor Palestinian children, these flores (flowers) who are being killed because they are intentionally placed with the rocket launchers by their fellow jihadists, so that the body count may be increased to sway public opinion.
The Muslim women and children are commanded to stay in their homes, mosques, schools and hospitals that contain the missiles and launchers. They are told not to heed the warning leaflets that Israel sends to give them ample time to leave the war zone. No shelters for them; Hamas uses those millions of dollars in humanitarian funds for tunnel construction and weapon purchase and storage. Even CNN covered the news about the tunnels, the tunnels that were built with the help of many children, resulting in the death of at least 130. Sr and Sra Bardem missed this unconscionable inhumanity.
What of the Israeli flowers, the three Jewish students who were kidnapped and murdered? Not a whisper from these distraught entertainers. What of the first rocket discharged – from Gaza? Not a murmur. What of the thousands of rockets fired from Gaza? No outcry from the Spanish for the Hebraicos. They will not acknowledge the post-traumatic stress syndrome of the Israeli children (Jews, Christians and Muslim), or the depression of the citizens’ living in constant terror or the increased number of miscarriages. The blinders they wear are all-encompassing.
