There are 84 Good People in Hollywood

h/t to Texas Rainmaker

With Liberal Hollywood stars like Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, and Barbara Streisand getting the majority of media attention, stories like this, from the Sydney Morning Herald, are refreshing.

Nicole Kidman and 83 Hollywood heavyweights are using the power of the press to speak out against terrorism...

It specifically targets "terrorist organisations" such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.

"We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hizbollah and Hamas," the ad reads.

Kidman and the other 83 celebrities (which include Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Rupert Murdoch, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton, William Hurt, Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Michael Mann, Dick Donner and Sam Raimi) are showing their support and committment for an ideal that seems, in general, out of tune with traditional Hollywood values. The stars go on to say,
"If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.

"We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs."
