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.”

    I bet a lot of us wish we could do something like this. We hear about it on the news but it seems like a distant thing. Something we can’t really touch. It’s nice to see Angelina Jolie step up and show compassion for people in need. I think her heart is in the right place.

    I’m always amazed that this woman has the time and energy to do all that she does. The magnitude of the work she is doing is enormous and for anyone to criticize her efforts is shameful.
    -
    These people don’t know her, they don’t care about her celebrity and that really isn’t her calling card. What she has to offer them is hope and the comfort of knowing someone is listening to them. But besides this, through her donations she provides items of practical utility as well as toys for kids so that they can have some sense of normalcy. There is no way that all the atrocities of war can be prevented, but it incumbent upon those in the position to do so to make the best effort that they can, so that at least some are saved. This is her mission.
    -
    It must be terribly frustrating and hurtful for her to be in the midst of all that pain and suffering, but she does it because of her compassion for people. It takes a very strong person to walk the path that she has chosen. Giving money many be easy for some, but facing the results of conflict and war on this level can be spirit crushing. No one can really know how much she personally has suffered, but it never deters her because as hard as it is for her to see it, she knows it is much more devastating for them to live it.
    -
    Angelina Jolie is an inspiration to everyone. No one works this hard for ulterior motives, it just can’t be sustain as a publicity stunt over these many years and those who make such claims know that to be true. You have to have dedication to a cause that comes from the heart, which is motivated not by self interest, but by empathy and compassion. She has that in spades.

    Finally. One journalist out of thousands. It’s ridiculous because it wasn’t just the “entertainment” media who made that the focus of their story. Even legit news agencies reported it as “Angeline Jolie to quit acting…” and then note that she made the comment while talking about using rape as a weapon of war. It was like, “Oh yeah…by the way…” And yet they wonder why nobody watches the nightly news anymore…

  • nani

    who is that tamsin? What a nasty person, sick, mean and perverse, all of that at the same time! No nice words, hidden, perhaps a fat one who is not loved by anyone.Piece of sh…..!

  • megatit

    @tamsin
    Lol, you know the only reason this ho-bag pulls this shitt is because she gets tired of Pitty and the runts. Those kids must spend about a month with both parents around throughout the year. It’ll be less after they announce their separation, lol. Why is Passing Poop blowing her load everywhere? Is she still mad because I said she had the longest beard?

    Good bless you Angelina!

    Who cares about your sex life, your stolen kids, boyfriends and husbands, your drugs and knives collections, the issues with your family -incest with Jamie and love-hate realtionship to both your deceased mother and father? Who cares about your drug fueled days, stealing your mom’s boyfriend and breaking up your co-stars’ engagement (BBT) and marriage (BBT)? Who cares about you cheating on Jonny with Jenny? Who cares about Lefsetz, your imaginary friend? Who cares if your children are not with you and you haven’t seen Brad in months!

    We fans don’t care about any of that stuff because you’re there helping out those poor people and that inspires me to be better.

    And if Jesus forgave the prostitute, he’s already forgiven you because of all these good deeds and blessed you with money, fame, beauty and power. Thumbs up if you agree! :)

    Angelina and Brad are my inspirations. Such a great couple who genuinely care for people in need.

    it´s truly funny to see the JEALOUS-SAD-HATER-KING-OF-STUPIDITY appear in this thread for spit her venom of hate and insane stupidity again and again and again… always the same rant of trash talk.

    for more then 7 years this MASTER-IDIOT-OF-HATE repeat the same old and false arguments about Angie and Brad.

    Angie and Brad can do all the good, help people, care for others, build a beautiful family, make and produce movies about difficult issues, work with ONG and Estates in all World to improve the life of people and much more but this PROFESSIONALS-OF-HATE will repeat the same old and boring talk.

    Don´t try to spread your false accusations about the Jolie-Pitts . Nobody believe in your lies even if you repeat the same thing one million of times it will not be true. One lie today it´s a lie tomorrow. It´s a lie seven years ago and it will be a lie next year.

    Well you are too ignorant, insane and obsessed and red of envy and hate to understand this simple questions. poor little and sad soul. Go take your medicine.

    You know that the trolls are desperate when they start stealing a fan’s name or pretend to be a fan. Sad isn’t it. Those poor pathetic losers.

    Why are the media report Angie is quitting acting? Angie didn’t say that. She said she’ll do less films and focus more on her humanitarian works.

    Anyway, she looks great in those photos. Great woman.

  • megatit

    @God blessed the prostitute!:
    Even the fact that she hired someone to kill her, was admitted to a mental institution, and wore vials of blood is ok? You loons are cray! Cray, I said!
    “Well, I’ve opened his vial, poured some on me. I’ve painted with it. I’ve considered pouring it on my clothes but I think people would be a little upset about it”. Ya think?

    Angie is an amazing woman. I wish more celebrities like her.

    You can’t have respect for a woman who has had more than 50 lovers of both sexes, scandals for years and

    the trash talk that the two residents MASTERS-OF-HATE are repeating every single day it´s not offensive, for me it´s no more offensive, what they say are making me laugh, it´s so ridiculous and stupid that i start to think it´s funny and amusing.

    What they say about drugs and sex and the children are so incredible ridiculous that i only can laugh , ha ha ha ha

    Angelina Jolie was in Jordan today, her second visit in three months in her role as UNHCR Special Envoy to raise awareness for the plight of Syrian refugees in the region. Meanwhile Jennifer Aniston is pregnant again and denying it again and hosted a holiday party with Justin Theroux. Usually though, after the Jolie drops some kindness, Jen is careful about the kinds of leaks she releases. No shopping pictures for at least a week — nothing frivolous. Babies though, babies are a good idea all the time.

    Brad and Angie do their best to make this world better. They walk their talks.

    UNHCR is going to be the world shame, the scandal Jolie is much next to going out to the light

    Brad & Angie donated $50,000.00 for the refugees in Jordan/Syria border for tents. That’s how our favorite couple in the world are, humanitarian. God bless the Jolie Pitt Family.

    Thank you look of love 1365, ! I was annoyed that all they could take from the interview that she would slow down her acting when her children hit the teen years she will be needed at home ! People are so jealous of her and I ask what have they done lately !! As for us they give to charity to the Us and to adopt here is a joke!!! I would not do it either so the social worker and judges can give them back to the parent or parents who don’t want them in the first place don’t me started!! On that subject!!look up SOS charity they have shown a light on that charity and most people in us don’t know about the wonderful work that is done by that charity in Us !!

    Hi TLOL1365, Thank you for bringing the article over. I clicked on the link as well to REGISTER the fact that I read the article and increase the view count – something I do whenever there is a good article about the JPs. This one article in particular was particularly pertinent – hitting the nail of the head – that in a discussion of something as HORRIFIC as rape as a weapon of war and as HOW the world needs to start addressing this crime to bring justice to the victims of rape, it is totally DISGUSTING that the only take away from that interview in so many blogs, including JJ’s was – “Oh Angie is going to quit acting.”
    .
    In the future, I hope that when serious journalists (- and I assume Cathy Newman is a serious journalist), interview the JPs on serious matters, they will simply avoid personal questions because the entire purpose of the interview is lost. I assume that for a serious journalist who wants to get the serious message across when interviewing the JPs, will be just as frustrated when the follow up report of the interview is all about something completely irrelevant – like how the JPs intend to quit acting.
    .
    Personally, I was completely disgusted by the coverage the celebrity press gave Angie on the Cathy Newman interview. It IS POSSIBLE to talke about serious matters AND do celebrity press. But none of them, not JJ’s not any of the others, even tried to explain what the broader interview was about.

    @tamsin
    Good points. So much effort for two laughing stocks. Leg bomb, Chanel bomb, KTS bomb, maybe this is why that slutt visits all these third world countries, they’re the only ones who are still in awe of her. If Muslim countries knew about her disgusting past, they’d probably stone her to death, lol. So, it’s loons, third worlders and a few nuts from Europe. They were the only ones still crazy about Michael Jackson after the Bashir interview, remember?
    And I’m pretty sure NAN may actually be from Ork. That’s too much retardation for one person to fake.
    Oh and yeah, I love it when they’re rabid with their hate for Lainey or Kaiser or pretty much EVERY site, magazine, and entertainment program unless, by chance, they say something flattering about their gods or derogatory to JA. Pathetic bunch. I’m expecting a Jonestown / Heaven’s Gate event when Heroina and Pitty announce their separation. Haha

    With the exception of a small contribution from the UN’s regular budget, UNHCR is entirely funded by voluntary contributions – both government and private. According to this year’s letter from UNHCR to me, they say they received only $ 10mil donation in 2011. Donation is decreasing due to the finantial crisis while refugees are enormously increasing. Now it has reached to more than 40 millions.
    One tent for one family costs $440 and Angie/Brad’s donation can supply more than 100, 000 tents for Syrian refugees.

    Brad Pitt love children’s chaos

    Brad Pitt has revealed he thinks the chaos his children create every morning is beautiful and he is trying to enjoy every moment of their childhood as he knows they will grow up quickly

    Brad Pitt says spending a morning with six children is ”a beautiful form of chaos”.

    The 48-year-old actor – who raises six kids, Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with his fiancee Angelina Jolie – is trying to enjoy every moment he can with his children because he knows they wont be young forever.

    He said: ”I would describe it as a beautiful and controlled form of chaos. Sometimes you’re tired and you kind of function on automatic but I really appreciate this time where the kids are still young and they’re forming right in front of your eyes.

    ”I’m trying to enjoy it all because I know that one day I’m going to look back and they’ll all be grown up and I’ll miss this time.”

    Brad and Angelina’s older children have got used to travelling around the world with their busy parents, and the ‘World War Z’ star revealed the couple’s youngsters love to create their own ”fantasy playgrounds” when they are staying in hotels.

    He added: ”They’re expert travellers. The older ones are getting very adept at packing up and taking along the books or toys they like to have with them wherever we’re living. They know the routine by now and so it’s much easier for me to organise everyone while Angie can pay more attention to getting the twins ready.

    ”They also love staying at hotels because it’s this pretend world for them that they get to be part of. It’s quite something to watch them create their own little fantasy playground wherever we go – running around, jumping, playing make-believe. I love it! Most of the time!”

    A doctor from Doctors Without Borders said he saw many non-Syrians from various counties came to his hospital in some city in Syria. They are injured anti-Assad members. I heard some of them are killing innocent citizens and raping women and children as Assad groups are doing. Both sides are doing these atrocity in the country. I think US and NATO are going to do something more agressively.
    Below is CFR’s senior fellow’s interview.
    ***********
    No Easy Answers in Syria
    Interviewee: Ed Husain, Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies
    Interviewer: Bernard Gwertzman, Consulting Editor
    November 14, 2012

    Over the weekend in Doha, Syrian opposition figures reached an agreement to form a group called the National Coalition for Revolutionary Forces and the Syrian Opposition, amid calls from the United States and European and Gulf countries for a show of greater unity. Ed Husain, a Middle East expert for CFR, says it “remains to be seen if the new coalition has any influence on what goes on inside Syria,” and whether it can rein in al-Qaeda. Overall, he remains pessimistic about Syria’s future and says the conflict could last at least another three or four years. “I can’t see people who’ve been fighting for the last eighteen months amid deep sectarian tensions suddenly overcoming them and looking for a premature political settlement,” he says.
