@Truth:

Wish in one hand and shite in the other and see which one gets filled first. They are the loves story of this era of celebrity. Suck it up, you can never change their amazing and loving bond and family. How many times do they have to say how committed they are to each other and their family for you to get it.

I can understand someone not being a fan……..free world, but to take the time to type such utter garbage and feign that you actually believe your own lies, is amazing to me.

You would have to be sight and hearing challenged or dumb as a box of rocks not to see their adoration of each other. So go spend your Sunday doing something more in touch with reality. He ain’t ever going back. They are going to marry and have more children……..your hell is going to continue likely for your lifetime. Give it up.

Can these two crazy trolls go somewhere else to fight?

Angie could be at home already, it is already night in UK. It is scary to see so many refugees surrounding Angie. you don’t know what would happen. sometimes could turn into a riot. I am glad the trip finally over. She is a very brave woman. I would be scare to death.

BRAVO!!! To you Dawne for saying everything I feel. And I am certain I am not alone in my feelings you expressed so well.

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/jolie-iraq-urges-open-borders-syria-refugees-155129996.html

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie on Sunday called for Syria’s neighbours to keep their borders open to refugees, during a visit to a refugee camp in Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan region.

“The most important thing is cooperation from the countries on the (Syrian) border… and to make sure these borders in all countries stay open,” said Jolie, a UN refugee agency (UNHCR) special envoy.

“I’ve been of course very encouraged to be here and hear the government speak of continuing this wonderful, life-saving open border policy,” she told reporters at the Domiz refugee camp in Dohuk province.

“I know how gracious the Kurdish government and the Kurdish region people have been to the Syrian refugees.”

The three-province region hosts the majority of the Syrian refugees in Iraq.

According to the UNHCR Syria Regional Refugee Response website, there are 25,508 registered Syrian refugees in Iraq, of which 16,833 are in Dohuk province.

Another 10,914 Syrian refugees are awaiting registration, putting the total at more than 36,000.

The UNHCR has said more than 250,000 Syrian refugees have been registered in neighbouring countries.

The total number of Syrians who have fled the bloody civil war between supporters and opponents of President Bashar al-Assad is even greater.

“With the continuation of the bloodshed in Syria, we have to all be prepared for a greater influx (of refugees), and I’m so happy to hear that the government is continuing to commit to these people,” said Jolie.

The actress, who has been on a tour of countries bordering Syria, arrived in a white UN helicopter, then travelled to the camp by pickup truck.

She stepped out of the vehicle near the camp, waving to the whistling, cheering crowd of Syrian refugees that greeted her.

“I have been to the four borders of Syria, and this is the first camp I have been to where they are already preparing for winterisation, and also where there are ID cards, giving freedom of movement, which is an extraordinary thing,” Jolie said.

A statement on UNHCR’s website said she had met Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari and Displacement and Migration Minister Dendar Najman in Baghdad, and also met Kurdistan officials including the region’s premier, Nechirvan Barzani.

“Combined with the new influx of Syrian refugees and the sudden return of over 30,000 of their own citizens, the complexity of the situation and the challenges for this country just emerging from conflict cannot be overstated,” the statement quoted Jolie as saying.

The world is so crazy right now. Conflicts everywhere. US vs Muslim, Israel vs Iran, Japan vs China. UN will face a lot of challenge in the future. People like Angie and Brad try their best to help people, they can only do what they can.

strazila is a mental bitch @ 09/16/2012 at 1:19 pm

@dawne: Great post.
.
I don’t know about these tweets about The Counselor. Most seem like Brad is the lead and not Fassy. So whenever Scott is filming, people assume the Brad is filming.
.
Thanks for the great articles about Angelina UN trip. Let’s hope the violence/war in Syria ends soon and these refugees will be able to go home.

New thread

plez @ 09/16/2012 at 1:20 pm
True, some tweets saying Brad was filming last weekend. but it was Brad’s stunt double in fact, there were pictures of stunt double filming.

It’s just sad that with such suffering in the world, with a thread that highlights efforts to bring the world together in one accord for the betterment of our neighbors, that we should have to put up with the neuroses of Trolls.
-
Someone put up an article that described trolls and it speaks to these 2 or 3 people who have camped out on JJ’s for the sole purpose of trying to upset the fans by spewing hate against this woman and her family in the foulest of language.
-
These people are mentally ill. They don’t need educating because they know the truth and they don’t care. They are only here to feed their own sick, twisted need to hurt others in the only way they can, with words.
-
They don’t have any life, any power, any self worth, so how can they care about the feelings of others, even those suffering in ways that many of us just can’t comprehend. They are worst than mean or twisted, they are evil, a title which I am sure they enjoy.
-
This is the reason I don’t talk to them. What can I say to a lunatic that would have any meaning for them? They are faceless cowards who through the protection of the anonymity of the internet create chaos through their constant negativity. Who can read that day in and day out and not be affected? The last thing I’d want to do would be read anything that they say.
-
If you’re wondering about your mood, why you feel depressed, angry and irritable sometimes, you may need not look farther than this blog and the insistence in reading what these trolls say day after day after day. Who cares what they think?. Who cares about making a point? Making a point or one upping someone is reserved for people with reasoning ability, not mental fleas.
-
Manny Patinkin said recently that he had to leave Criminal Minds because the continuing depressing subject matter was getting to him. Physiologist have long held that what we put in our minds can affect us mentally and physically.
-
I don’t need to know what they think of Jolie or to continue to defend things that are owed no defense. She is a warm, giving, empathetic, dedicated, compassionate woman. That’s what I’ve come to know of her and nothing a troll can say will ever changed that.
-
We will never stop trolls from spreading lies. It’s useless to think anything that we say will make any impression on them. There are special places of unmitigating pain and loneliness for them. It’s not hell, it’s within their own minds. Without us to feed them, they would lose what little gasp they have on sanity.
-
I’m speaking from a place of frustration, but it is mine to deal with. I just find it beyond reason that with the seriousness of the subject matter on these threads in the past few days that trolls are garnering so much attention.
-
Peace be to all, however you may find it.

@Rose:
.
Glad to hear you are feeling really good, Rose, and I am certain that meal will be delicious.
.
Yes. Angelina is just a fabulous lady. She fulfilled her commitments this week and visited the Syrian refugees in the various camps set up in several countries. God bless every one of those countries for helping in this dire time of need.
.
She is a real trooper and I know Brad and the children are proud of her and will have many questions for her. I remember her saying how she shares the stories of her trips with Brad because he is interested and inspired by what these people go thru and how resilient they remain and how they manage to still have hope despite all they have experienced.
.
I am so glad she has Brad to share these stories with and find comfort thru and cry it all out with and get suggestions on how she can be an even bigger help thru ideas that probably come to both of them as they discuss how to improve conditions for the refugees. I remember Brad saying they have conversations of this sort and “how to make things better.” They truly are a great couple.
.
Have a wonderful day Rose. And I am already enjoying your many lively and informative posts.

Fans, I’d like to share this very short video of how the Jordanian Gov’t has prepared for the influx of Syrian refugees. I found it to be quite interesting.

picture of a little girl on anjie’s lap,precious!!! thank you BRANGELINAFORUM!!!

Hello to all Brad and Angelina fans aren’t we all so proud of her. I am extremely proud and in admiration of her. She’s the best! All week she’s visiting the refugee camps helping, giving her time and love – never giving up, believing in what she’s doing and bringing awareness to all. I can’t say it enough, she is a great person. Be safe Angelina. You are in my thoughts all the time <3.

@tamsin: a perfect description for you dumblister LOL

@tamsin: 1,2 ,3, 4,……………n posts . who’s a real loon ?
a stalker ?? LOL

Angelina Jolie is one of a kind. Her kindness is just inspiring. She doesn’t have to do this BUT she chooses to. It gives her inner happiness to be able to help in her own way.
.
To be honest, I have little knowledge about refugees & as such BUT through her, I get informed what’s happening about these less fortunate people who are just victims of war.
.
It is really commendable to whatever kindness she is extending to strangers such as her current effort to go & visit Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey & Iraq to thank every government in welcoming & helping the Syrian refugees as well as to show the world that there is truly a need for the international community to give aid to these people.
.
It is impossible for everyone to like AJ as one simply cannot please everybody BUT it is impossible NOT to see the goodness of this person. Hate her all you want BUT not her kind gesture. She is simply giving a VOICE to the refugees.

@tamsin: really LOL another perfect description for you Lol.
a real stalker …………………. since April LOL

@Truth. Have you really lost your mind? There is no point to look for it. Tell me why should Angelina wear her engagement ring while showing respect for the refugees that have lost everything in this world? Only an insensitive idiot would do something like that, maybe like YOU.

who cares about ex wife ?? sorry i don’t have time for her.
grrrrrr rrrrrrrrr you sound upset LOL
calm down

I don’t understand why trolls and the like continue to waste their time and energy insulting certain celebrities and their fans. Whatever, you are all pathetic but I also know that if it were YOU in those awful conditions, people like Angelina Jolie and other celebs would still be fighting for you to have proper living conditions and medical care.

The plight of refugees is horrible and this is what people like AJ are hoping to bring to the forefront. A refugee has left their home and possessions and livelihood behind to save themselves and their families. Stuck in these camps they are in “limbo” unsure if they are just waiting it out in order to return to their homes someday or if they should find a way to move on and away from their homeland and start over somewhere.

Celebrities like AJ are hoping to bring awareness to this issue so that people support charities that are helping defray the costs of accommodating refugees and to pressure their governments to help these countries who are helping others.

All the immature people on this thread should maybe thing of pouring their time and energy towards helping raise this awareness. You are obviously on the web, alot, so why not put it to good use?

oh yeah , you are definitely angry and i love it LOL..

i have fun with my family, my friend , cyberfriend , my boyfriend…..
and you ” having too much fun ” here trolling????? bwa hahhahahahahhahaha

@tamsin: Not a guilty conscience, but perhaps a more understanding of her intended purpose of this journey, like to bring awareness to refugees plight . If I remember your nom d’plume correctly, you are a FF from way back. Why don’t you stay at FF and keep them posted with your sarcasms and condescending remarks. That palace suits you much better than here.
