Hollywood ‘Star’: ‘I Stand with Palestine’


(TheIndependentStar.com) – In a display of one-sided leftwing solidarity, actress Susan Sarandon reiterated her support for the Palestinian cause through a social media platform. However, the actress chose to omit the actions of Hamas, the terrorist group that invaded Israel on October 7, engaging in atrocious crimes such as rape, murder, and abductions.

Sarandon shared her stance on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, stating, “You don’t have to be Palestinian to care about what’s happening in Gaza. I stand with Palestine. No one is free until everyone is free,” amplifying a message from the Palestinian Feminist Collective.

Previously, in 2021, as Breitbart News covered, Sarandon had expressed her backing for model Bella Hadid, who publicly criticized Israel for its policies, labeling them as “apartheid,” and showed her presence in pro-Palestinian demonstrations. Sarandon voiced her support, tweeting, “I stand with the Palestinian People fighting against the apartheid government of Netanyahu and pray for the Israeli people that they too, will enjoy peace. I also support @bellahadid for having the bravery to stand in solidarity with her people. That can be lonely.”

Sarandon is not alone in her views within the Hollywood community regarding the Middle East conflicts. She joined prominent figures like Joaquin Phoenix, Cate Blanchett, Channing Tatum, Jessica Chastain, Andrew Garfield, and Kristen Stewart in advocating for a ceasefire between Gaza and Israel, emphasizing the importance of safeguarding civilians on both sides.

In communication with Joe Biden last month, these celebrities omitted any mention of Hamas, focusing instead on the plight of Palestinians in Gaza, as reported by Breitbart News. There was no acknowledgment of the victims of Hamas’s onslaught against Israelis, which included babies, children, and older people, occurring just a fortnight prior.

Echoing this sentiment, over 3,000 British actors, filmmakers, and artists called for a ceasefire last month, similarly omitting any reference to Hamas in their appeal.
