84 Hollywood Heavy Hitters Publish Ad in LA Times Against Terrorism - how come only Australia is carrying the story?

Nicole Kidman + 84 other Hollywood heavyweights stand against terrorists

LOS ANGELES, CA---Nicole Kidman has made a public stand against terrorism. The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today's Los Angeles Times newspaper.

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 Hezbollah and Hamas," the ad reads.

"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."

A who's who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.
The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.

Directors Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Michael Mann, Dick Donner and Sam Raimi also signed their names.

Other Hollywood powerplayers supporting the ad included Sumner Redstone, the chairman and majority owner of Paramount Pictures, and billionaire mogul, Haim Saban.

Al ... your logic is very questionable ... 3000 US on 9/11/01 & yes many in Iraq. Sunni vs Shiite sectarian violence is hardly evidence for your post ... maybe you'd like to prove these organizations are a myth by a trip to Iraq or NW Pakistan or other areas ... I'll be watching for the video ...

Oops, Anon, I thought Al was being ironic. You know, making fun of the national media for not getting it. Oops. Me bad.

Like his photo though. Kinda fits, don't you think?

Well, Al, I like Severus Snape too. There's always hope.

I like the lightbulb cartoon on your site. That was truly funny. Really.
