Angelina Jolie: Zaatari Refugee Camp Visit

Angelina Jolie holds hands with a little girl during a visit to the Zaatari refugee camp on Thursday (December 6) in Mafraw, Jordan.

This is the 37-year-old actress’ second trip to the region in three months to meet with the civilians that are being targeted.

“What I saw last night is a dramatic example of the plight of hundreds of thousands of Syrians who have been uprooted by the fighting and are in a desperate search for safety,” Angelina said to the UNHCR. “Civilians inside the country are being targeted. Many of those trying to flee are exposed to extreme danger right up to the border itself. I appeal to all sides in the conflict to do all they can to ensure the safe passage of these innocent civilians.”

    @valis202:
    Please! How is she helping? Seriously, going there with a camera crew for the UN is NOT HELPING.

    I pity any of you that look to Angie to educate you on the problems of the world!!

    I see in some photos of Angie’s visiting refugees, some kids are still wearing sandals in this cold weather. It is really sad to see this. I am thankful that Angie brings hope to them.

    @told ya so:

    If Jennifer Aniston, withered away and disappeared tomorrow, Angelina Jolie would still be the biggest star on the planet.

    It’s Aniston, the bland, superficial mediocrity who needs the JPs to be relevant in any way, shape or form.

    it´s really disgusting to see “ONE”, just one-loser posting her hate in the first page, running like a dog, using different names and stalking fans just to fill the 1º page with HATE.

    this sad-jealous-idiot must be proud to be the first ignorant to be closed and send to the box-dog by the fans.

    the sad-idiot is waiting in the shadows for Angie news to be the first.

    i believed this sad-jealous-hater belong to a small group of 3/4 idiots that are doing this just because they are insane and don´t know better.

    why normal and sane persons will attack someone who have done so much and keep doing for many people in this world?

    what Angie and Brad have done so incredible bad to deserve this insane-absurd-hate? nothing ….

    the haters can bark all day and watch the Jolie-Pitt walk without stop. Angie and Brad rule the world.

    Angie and Brad are too good and don´t care about this idiots they just think about there life, there family and helping changing this world for better.

    @valis202: #40, Joe/Josephine is a creep. She’s here everyday monitoring this thread 24/7. Her only joy in life is to critized the fans and pretend she is so educated, yet she’s on a thread of people he hates. With all Josephine’s pretend education, one would believe she would spend her time as a college professor giving back to society instead of stalking Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt and their fans. Brad and Angelina owns her as$. I hope Brad and Angie marries soon so I can watch the trolls screaming at the ocean and losing their minds, I guess they lost that already.

    wow, the psychotic jealous idiots are at it again. the reality is that Angelina Jolie travels in social circles these people will never be welcome in. that’s because Angelina is not only extremely talented, she is also a gracious, elegant, and a compassionate loving woman who actually cares about the welfare of her fellow human beings; no matter where they might live. all attributes our jealous trolls seriously lack.

    Jared and Chris, time to clean up this thread of all the xenophobia and ignorance from trolls.
    .
    Anyone who doesn’t get or who doesn’t want to get how her involvement helps the cause are beyond help. Her work long ago became much more involved than “visiting.” In any event, these “mere visits” do a lot of good both for awareness and fundraising and also significantly for the relations between the UN and the host country.
    .
    Most of these trolls are involved in the lower echelons of the work force and obsessed with gossip. Their opinions are hardly reflective of those whose opinions matter in these affairs.
    .
    Once gain Kudos to Angelina Jolie for continuing in her admirable work on behalf of those “refugees on the unarmed road of flight.”

    @Mimi: Angie is not the only person you can ask for help. Why don’t you ask Jennifer Aniston to adopt from America. Ask her what’s taking so long to help all the people who needs help. There are millions of millionaires who you should be asking to help all the Americans who needs help. Angle/Brad are not the savior of America.

    @Jaye: Hi Jaye, how are you? Hillary Clinton said she may do a home decorating show for HGTV. She is serious with her decorating ambitions, and you are serious with your writing. I hope to read your book one day.
    =======================================

    I will be right there watching if she did a show. I love to know what her design esthetic is. I’m loving Property Brothers and Elbow Room. That Chip Wade is 10x the designer that John Gidding is IMO, besides being an awesome contractor. As for David Bromstad, I hate to say it, but I haven’t watched him in a long time. He is just to modern for me and predictable.

    As for reading my story, uh, I hope you’re prepared for the s.exual language, it’s pretty direct. Gee, I made myself blush lol.

    if you sad-jealous-haters don´t like Angie and what she represent why you came here?

    If you like to know about house, hair color, dresses, gossip, and all the other trash that you talk with your sad-friends this is not your place.

    Angie is not a gossip girl, she is not a Hollywood girl, she do not care about party’s or TV Shows or other trivial rich subject or even American idiotic and ignorant kind of life.

    Angie is a citizen of the World she care about the people of the world.

    That´s why she is loved by the rest of the world. Angie is the true World example of a World citizen.

    ================.

    For a report this week on Britain’s Channel 4 about rape in Syria, actress and UN special envoy Angelina Jolie spoke out to Cathy Newman about the efforts to aid refugees. So what were the headlines after the interview? USA Today reports that “Angelina Jolie planning to quit acting.” E! says, “Angelina Jolie… Plans to Give Up Acting.” Access Hollywood asks, “Angelina Jolie To Retire When Her Kids Become Teenagers?” And the Christian Science Monitor says, “Angelina Jolie home with the kids? She’s talking about retiring from acting once her brood hits their teen years because of ‘too much to manage’ at home.” If this were the comprehension portion of the SAT, the mainstream entertainment media would have just bombed out mightily.

    It was during the final minute of the interview that Jolie, who happened to be sitting next to Foreign Secretary William Hague, responded to the question of whether she ever thinks her humanitarian work is more rewarding than her acting. “I think I’m going to have to give up acting as the kids hit the teenage years anyway, because there’s going to be too much to manage at home,” she said, adding, “If it went away tomorrow, I’d be very happy to just be home with my children.” And that was totally the most significant part of the whole piece. Not William Hague calling the situation in Syria “one of the worst things happening in the world today.”

    Sure, Jolie is a huge, Oscar-winning star, and her career decisions are entertainment news. But this isn’t quite the same thing as when her partner Brad Pitt last year said he was giving his acting career “three years” more because “I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together” during an interview that was not about mass rape as a weapon of war.

    Similarly, Jolie’s acknowledgment that the obligations of parenthood don’t end when a kid is toilet trained – a sentiment that became part of the national conversation earlier this year when Anne-Marie Slaughter famously railed about “having it all” — would, in the context of a different discussion, have been a legitimate a jumping off point for another public discourse of work and motherhood. I would like to point out however that, gosh, it’d sure be nice if a woman’s choices about how to raise her family didn’t always seem to come with a big fat wave of A-HA! She can’t hack it! By all means, let’s focus on making sure women everywhere are reminded that, as the CS Monitor tells us, Jolie and Pitt “can hire whatever help they want. Nannies, housekeepers, tutors, LEGO experts, whatever. But still, parenthood changes things.” Thanks, helpy helpertons!

    It’d be even nicer if the takeaway from an 11-minute segment about bringing aid to women who’ve been sexually assaulted could be something other than the big news that Angelina Jolie says she’d be happy staying home with her kids. I swear to God, I can’t imagine how emotionally deficient a journalist would have to be to watch a story about harrowing sexual violence and boil it down to a headline about who’s quitting acting.

    And so, because it seems to have been missed in all the busy chatter about how the movie star is “managing” motherhood, let me tell you what else Jolie told Channel 4. She said, “These years in the filed, I continued to meet victims of sexual violence who had seen no justice, and had felt isolated and abused, and abuse upon abuse because they’d been ignored … How dare we not do something?… How can we live in a world where people are abused in such fashion? Where young girls and boys are being raped so violently?” Not a sexy, headline making statement. Definitely not one that affects whether there’s a sequel to “Salt.” But if you’re talking about a woman who’s trying to raise awareness of women who’ve been ignored, it’s the one message to not ignore.

    Jennifer Aniston needs to do some charity like Angelina Jolie. Not just read some lines for a St Judes commercial , flip her hair, and call it a day. Actions speak louder than words, bimbo!

    Angie is helping the refugees and you are here hating on a woman trying to bring awareness to the problems. We can see who’s the winner and it is not you, troll.
    .
    And quit pretending you knew about Syria. Pffft. You’re here 24/7/365 days. Your world revolves around the JPS. Your obssession with them is not healthy, becuase you hate them.
    .
    JPs fans have lives outside this blog/site, hence, we’re not here 24/7/365. You, OTOH, lives here. You are the resident troll.
