Angelina Jolie: Zaatari Refugee Camp Visit!

Angelina Jolie pays a visit to the Zaatari Refugee Camp on Tuesday (September 11) near the Jordanian border with Syria.

The 37-year-old actress and UNHCR special envoy was joined by UN High Commission for Refugees staff to visit some of the more than 250,000 refugees who have fled Syria. The United Nations is calling the humanitarian problems sparked by the conflict their “biggest crisis”.

“It’s been a very heavy experience, because oftentimes you come to these camps and … very rarely do you … meet them as they cross the border and you get to know people the moment they become a refugee,” Angelina said in a press conference. “The moment they’ve forever lost their home, their livelihood, their education, everything they have been is gone, and when I ask them, ‘What did you bring?’ they say ‘This’ (plucks at her shirt) ‘The shirt on my back.’”

The evening before, Angelina visited some refugees minutes after they made it across the border.

Watch The Today Show‘s special reporter Ann Curry reporting from the scene below!

She tries to get PR with her kids. That doesn’t work for her. Why not try the memorial day of 9/11 huh. This is not working for her either. Smart people can see right through her. GMAB is right. She will be laughing all the way home to OUR COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is beyond trash. She is the entire landfill.

Best UN celebrity ambassador ever.

JPfan,

i know why hags are upset Angelina currently has 1005 news articles about her trip on google news feed(thats WAY more than Jen got for her pr engagement) Angie is currently trending on yahoo and msn and people all across the globe are seeing what a great humanitarian she is and most IMPORTANTLY people can get more informed about Syrian refugees, how many people would have thought about Syrians today, prob not a lot, you go girl! we are so proud of you, Brad and the kids are so lucky

If she thinks she can overshadow 9/11 she is crazier than she looks. She is no better than the dirt on the bottom of my shoe. Who cares where she goes, just as long as she goes!

@fyi12:

She didn’t ‘pick’ the day, she CHOSE to do it for them on this day!!!!!
She could have done it yesterday or tomorrow, but No! 9-11 is recognized globally. This was on purpose loon. And she was right there helping. She is an owned *****.
Why doesn’t she speak on behalf of cancer riddled first responders and survivors of 9-11 today????? She’s fake and hateful, turning her back on Americans.

@JP Fan:

Do you think God cares who’s trending on yahoo? Moron.

The Real Deal @ 09/11/2012 at 4:49 pm

@As if:

Uhhmmm how is she overshadowing 9/11? in what way? Although I do find your feigned outrage quite amusing. Please do elaborate.

The Real Deal @ 09/11/2012 at 4:51 pm

Wow, there’s one angwy little nutter on board.

The only comments I read are the hidden comments. They are the only ones that are true an interesting to me. She call herself a humanitarian. That is BS. She doesn’t have a bit of humanity in that ugly, skinny body of hers. She is not human. She is evil and nasty. This trip was planned for this day. She is the same as Kim Kardash. They will do anything for pr attention. She cannot stand on her own, so she cries her fake tears an laughs at the world. What she has done today will not help her. If anything it is not going to sit well with Americans or Hollywood. She is scum. Pure an simple scum.

I’m sure loons have contacted their representatives and donated generously to the UN Refugee Agancy thanks to Angelina’s noble efforts.

aniston is a filthy loser @ 09/11/2012 at 5:07 pm

Jen loon is changing name as we speak. Just don’t engage. Loser like their idol JenHo. She is angry because paid midget cannot stand her granny idol. She’s out there working hard for her midget while her midget is going to fashion shows. LOL LOL

@aniston is a filthy loser:

Doncha know? Jennay is doing her part for ‘merica. She’s buying one ‘merican d.i.c.k. at a time.

bringing this over from last thread, proof that Angelina makes an impact
Angelina Jolie’s crusade for the world’s less fortunate is moving Congress closer to committing 10% of total U.S. AIDS-relief funding for orphans under 18. Jolie, who D.C. insiders say was this past year’s “most effective activist” among movie stars, held private meetings with several powerful committee chairmen, including a testy one with staunch law-and-order conservative Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., about the legal rights of unaccompanied alien minors.

@JP Fan:

Do they know she stole a baby from it’s mother, claimed the mother was dead, and that baby Z had aids?

The Real Deal @ 09/11/2012 at 5:22 pm

@JP Fan:

And this, is why the schizos’ b.u.t.t.holes are clenching in rage. This woman is on a whole ‘nother level.

Not A Fan @ 09/11/2012 at 5:25 pm

People from 90 different countries died on 9/11 and she picks this day to go to a terrorist country to boo hoo over their people. She should be here crying those fake tears for our people. The same people that made her and her boyfriend the millions of dollars they have today. If she is that concerned for them let her give all her millions and move there so she can care for them. She can take her boyfriend and her kids with her. What a low life sk@nk!

@megatit:

Hiya Mega! Oh I totally agree. In addition to those refugees whose lives she touched, the hor goddess has also changed her loons’ lives for the better. What a wonderful example she’s setting. You can see loons also doing charity, helping refugees, adopting third world orphans too.

How can you not love this woman who only spends a few hours in a refugee camp and put on some make up to get photographed next to these refugees? I’m sure that in the moment they saw her divine (and totally not-surgically-enhanced) face, all their tribulations went away. Without her, how else loons would know what is going on in Syria.

Score one more for the hor of Babyloon! Yay!

“Clearly there are bigger criminals in the United Nations than Angelina Jolie, but nevertheless she has been an enthusiastic proponent of all these so-called “humanitarian” wars in Libya and beyond. The United Nations’ history of war crimes and massacres is legendary, and just as Joseph Goebbels operated as a propaganda minister for the Nazis, Jolie, who is officially employed by the UN, is their mouthpiece. It is her task to promote endless war. It’s time to call out the United Nations and by extension their poster girl Jolie for what they are – instruments of a corporate fascist world government. Yesterday morning while doing research into Kony 2012 I read a Hollywood Reporter article where Jolie was enthusiastically calling for an invasion to arrest Joseph Kony in Uganda, and the hypocrisy was just too much. The western backed dictator of Uganda has overseen the murder of a thousand times the number of people than what Joseph Kony has killed, and so by Angelina Jolie’s benchmark for war crimes she herself should be arrested, but therein lies the paradox, because United Nations would have to arrest itself.”

————————————————————

While Joseph Kony and his army disappeared six years ago, Ugandans are being killed and evicted in their thousands by western entities right now – but nobody is making ‘viral’ films about the crisis and celebrities like Angwelina Jolie are tweeting their displeasure.

Following the release of Kony 2012, a film made by a shadowy charity with links to USAID, the Tweetosphere exploded with a deluge of leftist politicos and clueless celebrities jumping on the bandwagon to call for Barack Obama to launch yet another act of “humanitarian” bloodletting to go after Kony, leader the of Lord’s Resistance Army (LRC).

In their haste to appear trendy and in vogue with a viral trend that was all over the social networks like a bad rash within the space of 24 hours, those advocating an increased military intervention on top of the 100 US troops already sent into Uganda last year, most notably habitual “humanitarian” warmonger Angelina Jolie, didn’t concern themselves with the facts.

The propaganda campaign that has put Joseph Kony on a par with Osama Bin Laden and Hitler is a crude hoax to legitimize the US military-industrial complex’s agenda to re-colonize Africa under Africom.

“Not surprisingly, the [film] is seriously misleading, falsely implying there’s war raging in Northern Uganda when there’s not. In fact, Kony has not been in the country for six years; his group is a much-depleted rump, numbering a few hundred people at most,” writes ABC Australia’s Jeff Sparrow.

Ugandan journalist Angelo Izama calls Kony 2012 a “misrepresentation,” noting that the film’s “portrayal of [Kony's] alleged crimes in Northern Uganda are from a bygone era,” and that the problems facing the country in 2012 are AIDS, Hepatitis, prostitution and unemployment, none of which would be alleviated by a U.S. military invasion on the pretext of hunting a man who is not even in the country.

“At the end of the day the Kony2012 campaign will not make Joseph Kony more famous but it will make Invisible Children famous,” writes Izama. “It will also make many, including P.Diddy, feel like they have contributed some good to his capture- assuming Kony is even alive. For many in the conflict prevention community including those who worry about the militarization of it in Central Africa this campaign is just another nightmare that will end soon. Hopefully.”

While a legion of celebrity idiots and political operatives push the Kony 2012 hoax, Ugandan people are currently facing a very real threat of murder and displacement that has nothing to do with the Lord’s Resistance Army. It’s being carried out by the Ugandan government itself in alliance with the World Bank and carbon trading companies.

As we reported last year, armed troops acting on behalf of New Forests Company, an outfit backed by the World Bank whose board includes HSBC Managing Director Sajjad Sabur as well as other former Goldman Sachs investment bankers, burned houses to the ground and killed children to evict Ugandans from their homes in the name of seizing land to protect against “global warming.”

An Oxfam report documents how the British outfit has worked with the Ugandan government to forcibly expel over 20,000 people from their homes using terror and violence as part of a lucrative scramble for arable land that can be used to satisfy the multi-billion dollar carbon trading ponzi scheme, which is worth $1.8 million a year to the company.

Harrowing stories speak of how armed “security forces” stormed Ugandan villages and torched houses, burning children to death as they threatened to murder anyone who resisted while beating and torturing others.

But you won’t see the likes of Angelina Jolie or Bono tweeting about it in protest, because slaughtering people in cold blood and evicting families from their ancestral land in the name of saving the planet is p

@Not A Fan:

Those refugees are victims, just like the people that died in NY…… whyyy I bet some of them were even of Sryian descent. You see loss pain and death are universal, ‘mericans dont have a patent on tragedy. And pookie, why arent YOU boohooing and holding a vigil for the victims on this Oh so sacred day. YOU are obsessing about AJ on a computer. Slore, you couldnt care less about what day it is. You’re using a tragedy to bash a woman helping others. If ya want to see a low life sk.a.n.k. look in the mirror. Now go run, back to the FF mothership and make up more reasons to hate someone who has done more good than your evil a.s.s. ever will.

Mrs. Chancellor @ 09/11/2012 at 5:46 pm

Keep it up Angelina. You are wonderful.

@tamsin
Oh I know Tam. The poor dear. She does so much in two hours. Thank God she gets to go home to her French château. And you’re right Tam, at least she keeps the loons informed. I’m sure they’re packing up their instant noodles and Brangelina dolls to send to the refugees as we speak…
