Penelope Cruz & Javier Bardem Write Open Letter About Israel's 'Genocide' on Gaza

Penelope Cruz, her husband Javier Bardem, and director Pedro Almodovar, are just a few of the stars that have written an open letter in local Spanish publications slamming Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip

“Gaza is living through horror these days, besieged and attacked by land, sea and air. Palestinians’ homes are being destroyed, they are being denied water, electricity [and] free movement to their hospitals, schools and fields while the international community does nothing,” the open letter read (via E! News).

The letter also urged to “lift the blockade, which the Gaza Strip has suffered for more than a decade,” and “open border crossings to facilitate the mobility of the population, the entry of medical equipment, medicines and food.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem’s open letter??

    This is an example of why actors should just shut up and act. I ask Javier and Penelope if their home countries were under constant bombing over their boarder, would they still advocate for the protagonists? Granted the people of Gaza are paying the price, it is their support of Hamas letting them launch bombs from mosques, homes, schools, etc.

    Wonderful words. More people need to realize that Israel is committing genocide, killing Palestinians because they are not Jewish/Israeli. They are doing what was done to them by H!tler.

    Shame on Israel!

    Interesting read .. too bad, it’s all a bunch of crap! When the people of Gaza stop tunneling into Israel and when they lay down their weapons .. the war will be over! Penelope and her husband don’t know the facts…if they did, they would have STFU long ago!! If Israel lays down it’s weapons, Israel will cease to exist .. When the Palestinians lay down their weapons there will be peace!!!! When the Palestinians love their children, more than they hate Israel…there will be peace!!!!

    BTW…who does she think runs Hollywood???? Guess she won’t be working for awhile!!

    FINALLY! Celebrities start talking about this conflict! What palestinians are supposed to do? Let Israel steal their entire land and do nothing about it? Submit to israel’s domination, humiliation?
    And yes what is happening right now is a genocide everyone knows, sees it but do nothing about it! What a shame! Why the ONU is not sending troops like it was the case in libya? Syria? Etc…

    It’s a really crappy situation for both sides. How do you let people come and go freely and keep the terrorist which govern these innocent people out?

    LoMo Says:

    While the situation is definately not black and white, at least someone is not starting an idiotic hashtag-action on twitter.
    It is hair-raising that seemingly no efforts are made to negotiations or peace terms.
    Noone reasonably expects a solution but less blood sheding should be negotiated.

    swiftie Says:

    That conflict has nothing to do with them. They are neither Israeli nor Palestinian. They are Spanish. Some people will do anything to make themselves relevant again. Soon we will be hearing Madonna and Sharon Stone sharing their thoughts on Gaza. The only celebrity who has any business giving an opinion on this conflict is Natalie Portman, who is actually from Israel.

    @swiftie: thats the most stupid thing ever said so nobody can comment on the killing of innocent people on both sides just cause we are not from the country, you sound terribly ignorant.

    adam Says:

    @swiftie: IDIOT they are human beings not animals like you probably seeing all these children dead and hospitals and schools bombed moved some emotions in them.and natalie portman the israele her opinion will probably favors israel but even she has more brains to know that israel is committing war crimes in gaza so she wont open her mouth anytime soon

    @MK: Oh so you support murdering innocent school children? Wow you Israelis are so blinded and have zero morality and humanity. Stop being so biased and think like a human being!

    just_me Says:

    @MK: I don’t like Penelope or Javier, i think they’re fake and arrogant people. BUT they are right in this matter. It’s insane what is hapening there right now. And let me tell you we, in Spain had some sort of terrorism from a part of the country and we never bombed that land to “protect ourselves”. You can’t blame an entire country because some of them take awful decisions like killing people and kill them way back without stopping to consider there might be innocent ones.

    Would make my day if Muslim terrorists would build a terror tunnel under Cruz & Bardems family home or if they had rockets flying into their town…threatening them and all those Spanish Idiots…I wonder what letter they would write then… Just wait 15-20 years when the Muslims take over Europe… I wonder if Cruz will be allowed even to write a letter let alone give an opinion…

    Gaza is an open prison. Everyone is using the crisis as a political tool, and sadly children and women are paying the ultimate price for it.

    Watch this exclusive documentary on what took place in Gaza just a few days ago, it was a massacre.
