“Killing Us Softly”: Gwyneth Paltrow Fundraises for Terror-Front Palestinian Charity Tied to HAMAS, PLO, Al-Qaeda

Well, no wonder actress Gwyneth Paltrow left Hollywood. It wasn’t just that she hates America and Americans–as she told Spanish media. It’s that she preferred Pali-wood, the pro-Palestinian cesspool known as England.
And Thursday, she put her money where her mouth is–er, her mouth where the terrorist money is–by appearing and singing karaoke at a fundraiser for the Palestinian charity, the Hoping Foundation, a front-group for HAMAS and other Islamic terrorist groups founded by Hugh Grant’s Muslim girlfriend Jemimah Khan and some anti-Israel left-wing Jews. Paltrow’s karaoke song choice, “Killing Me Softly,” is ironic, since the Hoping Foundation provides money and resources to HAMAS operatives and others running Palestinian refugee camps and breeding and training future killers, who do NOT kill “softly.”

The Hoping foundation is a virulently anti-Israel charity, which funds programs throughout Gaza and Palestinian refugee camps, including Ein Al-Hilweh, Burj Al-Barajneh, and Nahr Al-Bared, which are hotbeds of Al-Qaeda and HAMAS activity. The Chair of its Board of Trustees is Karma Nabulsi, PLO representative from 1977-90 to the UN, Beirut, Tunis, and the UK, who wrote a column defending PFLP terrorist chief George Habash’s hijackings as “an inspiration to secular democracy.”

The Hoping Foundation camouflages the programs as “art” and “creative writing,” claiming they spread peace. But, in fact, the programs are administered by members of HAMAS. The Hoping Foundation joins UNRWA (the UN Refugee agency for Palestinians) in using HAMAS officials and supporters to help spread the hate. The Hoping Foundation website’s description of who the Palestinians are is filled with anti-Israel disinformation and propaganda. The Foundation’s site does not disclose the identities of its trustees, but they include Hugh Grant’s girlfriend, Ms. Khan.
In the Hoping Foundation’s “Who Are the Palestinians?” we are told that:

Palestinians . . . were forced to leave their homes in 1948 when Israel was created, and again in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

Actually, none of them “were forced to leave.” They chose to leave at the behest of neighboring Arab nations, who–during both wars–assured them that they would defeat Israel and the Palestinians could then return. The Palestinians made the wrong bet. And they lost. Tough. After decades, you’d think they’d want to better themselves–as did the million Jews who were kicked out of their homes and expelled from Arab lands. But, then, that would take away a political issue from all the Muslim and Arab nations who hate the Jews (and hate the Palestinians, too).
The Hoping Foundation also tells us:

The majority of Palestinian refugee children live difficult and harsh lives, facing the realities of continued Israeli occupation.

That’s interesting, since the Hoping Foundation has a lot of projects in Gaza, which is not occupied, but is run by the Palestinians. And the Palestinians also control 95% of the land in the so-called “West Bank.” And the harsh lives in Syrian, Jordanian, Lebanese, and Egyptian refugee camps for Palestinians–where a lot of the Hoping Foundation programs take place–are a result of those governments’ apartheid policies against Palestinians, refusing to allow Palestinians the same civil rights as natives of those countries.

Check out one of the “tamer” Hoping Foundation programs for which Gwyneth Paltrow helped raise money. Last summer, the foundation and Jemimah Khan took a film director on an anti-Israel propaganda trip:

We also organised a trip to occupied Palestine last summer with British film director, Stephen Frears, visiting HOPING activities in Balata and Qalandia refugee camps as well as UNRWA officials and facilities. The delegation met UN humanitarian officers that work in the occupied Palestinian territories, as well as Palestinian filmmakers and artists. We believe that providing an opportunity for people to see for themselves the daily reality, and witness at first hand the obstacles impeding everyday life under military occupation, is the most useful and direct means for them to learn more about the situation.

Here was this gullible director’s predictable response:

Until I saw it with my own eyes, I did not fully understand what occupation meant. Going to Palestine changed my life. I was so shocked by what I saw.

Hmmm . . . when’s he visiting Sderot or the wreckage of the Park Hotel, site of the Passover massacre homicide bombing, or Mike’s Bar, or Mayor’s Falafel, or Jerusalem Sbarro, or the Dolfinarium Disco?



This Propaganda Appears on the Hoping Foundation Site

What was boyfriend Hugh Grant’s involvement in all of this? Not that he has done anything of note recently that didn’t involve oral sex with a hooker in the backseat of a car.

In 2006, on behalf of the Hoping Foundation, his girlfriend, Jemimah Khan, and Bella Freud, another trustee of the “charity” participated in a special issue of an Islamic Palestinian magazine, Haq Al-Awda, dedicated to “Al-Naqba“–the catastrophe, which is what Muslims call the day that Israel was established. One of their co-contributors was Bishop Atallah Hanna of the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem. He is famous for calling for fellow Christians to participate in HAMAS homicide bombings against Jews.
A 2005 program for Gwynnie’s new fave charity, educated Palestinian kids in refugee camps on how to be politically active on behalf of the P.L.O., by being given a book, put out by the Palestinian women’s arm of the terrorist organization founded by Yasser Arafat:

Young Reader’s book on Children’s Rights
Written by two local Palestinian writers, and with pictures by local artists in a fun and engaging style, the book educates young Palestinian refugee children on their social, economic and human rights. A Hoping grant provided for the printing of 3770 copies distributed to all UNRWA nurseries and grammar schools in the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. The project was administered jointly by . . . he General Union of Palestinian Women.

And ongoing Hoping Foundation program is this propaganda sham:

History Database Project
Connecting Palestinian Youth with the Older Generations through Oral History- 2006-2008

[Y]oung people participate in devising the questions and recording the interviews with the older generation using audio and video equipment. This idea followed on from an earlier initiative with the Lajee Centre in Aida Camp where they organised outings for the children to other youth centres in the West Bank, introducing them to subjects such as the separation wall and the state of Palestinians inside Israel.

It’s a fence, not a wall, and it was erected to keep terrorists out. Palestinians inside Israel don’t want to leave, because they know they have it better there than under the despotic rule of their own people or any other Arab or Muslim rule.

And Paltrow isn’t the only celeb involved with the abomination of a “charity.” Other celebs who’ve organized and contributed to Hoping Foundation fundraisers include Kate Moss, Chrissie Hynde, Bryan Adams, Nick Cave, and The Clash’s Mick Jones. Moss and Cave hosted a “Hoping for Palestine” concert.

After discovering this, I’m not going to patronize any of the products that Kate Moss promotes and for which she has modeling contracts. And I suggest you boycott Gwyneth Paltrow’s future movies.

If they want to raise money for HAMAS and PLO front-groups, we shouldn’t contribute a penny to their bottom lines.

Here’s Hoping that Gwyneth Paltrow and the rest stop Killing Us Softly with their ignorant and destructive pan-terrorist political activism.
Since Gwyneth Paltrow raises money for the promotion of Islamic extremism in Palestinian refugee camps, I thought she might enjoy wearing some of the “Killing Me Softly” garb that she’d have to wear if she lived there. Thanks to Fred Taub of Boycott Watch for the PhotoShop.

Dear Miriam (“I want to plant roses all over Palestine”):
I have some very good news for you. You don’t have to plant roses all over Palestine because the Jews have already done that. Besides, your fellow Palestinian Arabs are finding it rather hard to plant roses with Kalashnikov assult rifles.
You COULD try planting roses in your refuge camp in Lebanon. I’m not quite sure why an Arab like you must live as a refuge in a land you were clearly born in, but I shall not digress further regarding minor details.
Given the picture in the background of your compelling poster, it is clear to me that your present community could benefit greatly from your desire to plant roses. If for some reason, you cannot plant roses in your present community, you need to ask your community leaders “why not!”

Cut the drama. The issue is: dar-Islam v dar-Harb. Or: us v them. Israel is the front-line of the same fight that we are all waging against the Muslim horde. It is a CLASH.

The Hoping Foundation also tells us:
“The majority of Palestinian refugee children live difficult and harsh lives, facing the realities of continued Israeli occupation.”
Things were certainly different before the PLO (AKA “The Tunisians”) were airlifted into the West Bank and Gaza. Until that time, the [so called] Palestinians had the highest standard of living of any Arab population in the region. Arafat’s thugs immediately robbed every bank and stole every nice home and automobile from the previously upwardly mobile population.
And by the way….the Palestinian refugee camps are for the most part, typical, run-down, apartment blocs..as seen in Europe and the United States. Not at all bad for people who shun physical labour for the easy-pickins on offer from the NGO’s.

P.S., I could add a few dozen names to your “Must cite” list……

Considering that she is married to hard left (and no talented) Cold Play lead singer Chris Martin – I am not surprised about Paltrow. She can stay in Britain for all I care with Madonna and her naming of her daughter “Apple” qualifies as child abuse. As for Hugh Grant – he was living with one of the most beautiful women in the world Elizabeth Hurley yet he picks up “Divine” Brown for a Lewinsky in the back seat of a car.

I gave up my TV a few years ago, because I found that virtually all the ‘entertainment’ was politically biased, or on the level of a 5 year old. Radio stations on the internet, old movies, old TV shows, & old radio shows are readily available in huge variety, bringing to mind a time when the United States and Western Civilization were respected by entertainers. Those few movies & TV shows worth watching can be identified just be reading movies reviews such as Debbie’s. I’ve gotten along fine for years without any of this garbage.

c f on June 23, 2008 at 4:30 pm

Good stuff Debbie.
After all, this is an idiot that named her kid apple and is happy about it! I’m sure the kid’s future husband is gonna love saying that name. /rolls eyes
I have long hated hollywood for the most part (with a few exceptions the ones that aren’t whacko liberal). I use the strong word hate becuase I feel they push and push their agenda yet try to act like they are all for freedom which is malarky. I noticed that their awards went to the stupidest and most unappealing movies. My value system never seemed to match up with them. I noticed this even in my teens.
Let’s take for example the whole fundraising for 9/11 that bill o’reilly helped expose when the hollywood people got all this money raked in and didn’t seem to care that the charity wasn’t giving it to the right people or releasing it. Only a few even cared! Well, I took note let me tell you but those who chose to attack bill instead of making it right are disgusting. bill o’reilly is not my favorite any longer due to his embracement of geraldo, sharpton and that ilk but when he’s right, he’s right and those hollywood people who took others’ money and would not check up on it and came up with excuses when it was exposed are disgusting peoplem with questionable ethics.

Her ancestors on her fathers side were Rabbi’s (I think Hungarian). I am sure they are turning over in their graves. I am sorry to read that Jeff Beck (my favorite guitarist) was involved in that show.

Ripper on June 23, 2008 at 4:51 pm

My mistake. Paltrow is descended from Polish Rabbis not Hungarian.
“Paltrow is a descendant of Rabbi David HaLevi Segal of KrakÛw through the Russian rabbinical family Paltrowitch, which produced 33 rabbis over several generations.”
Memo to Gwyneth and all her moonbat friends at the performance that night – being 1/2 Jewish the jihadis hate you as much as they hate me and Debbie Schlussel and every other ‘full blooded’ Jew. Furthermore Gwyenth and her friends Stella McCartney and ex pat American Chrissie Hynde et al – should know but refuse to recognize that those bombs in London on 07/07/2005 was meant for all of them!

Ripper on June 23, 2008 at 6:18 pm

Sigh, if I ignored all the hollywood lefties, I would have to give up movies:(

mindy1 on June 23, 2008 at 9:16 pm

Does anyone listen to, or take present, or ex Hollyweirdo’s seriously…I sure don’t!

Jackson Pearson on June 23, 2008 at 11:12 pm

Gwyneth Paltrow, another empty headed dangerous nitwit.

arius on June 24, 2008 at 1:31 am

Hugh Grant’s girlfriend Jemimah Khan was born Jemimah GOLDSMITH. Yep, her father’s a Jew. She married a Pakistani cricket player by the name of Khan and I believe she converted to Islam. So she and Gwynny have something else in common- they’re both the daughters of Jewish men and are now spitting on their dads’ religion.

bluekrauss on June 24, 2008 at 1:50 am

Thanks once again for this informative article. I really want to know which celebs support the palestinians so I can boycott their films, music and endorsed products as well as spread the word concerning their vile shallow ignorance and hatred of Israel.

johndoe on June 24, 2008 at 6:00 pm

mindy1 that is actually not true. There are plenty of “liberal” actors and actresses that are normal in their thoughts and not whacko like the outspoken ones of the last 6 or so years.
So I disagree..there are PLENTY of movies to see. Keep track of the whackonuts who hate america and do NOT line their pockets.

diaphanous on June 25, 2008 at 6:14 am

This article is PATHETIC. All of you that are commenting- I suggest you use your OWN heads and do your OWN research into Palestine and Israel. Put your bigoted media induced views aside. Perhaps your own leg work will enable you to determine your OWN opinions as opposed to agreeing with dimwits such as this article’s author. Journals, resarch papers and charity websites are what should determine your views on issues no the crap you see and hear in the media.. OPEN YOUR EYES.

Peace Girl on November 12, 2010 at 8:48 pm

Hey Peace Girl,

Why don’t YOU do some research, you twit..er, twat. You are brain-dead….Look up the history of the FAKESTINIANS..no such people..and guess what? If it weren’t for Israel, “Palestine” would have NO WATER…they are too lazy, stupid, and busy shooting rockets to learn how to live like normal people. YOU ANTI-SEMITE TWAT

natashaINFIDEL on June 1, 2011 at 8:47 pm

“They chose to leave at the behest of neighboring Arab nations, who–during both wars–assured them that they would defeat Israel and the Palestinians could then return.”

Please explain to me how the Arab nations encouraged them to flee.

Muzahaf on May 7, 2012 at 4:58 pm

@ natashaINFIDEL
“they are too lazy, stupid, and busy shooting rockets to learn how to live like normal people. YOU ANTI-SEMITE TWAT”

Interesting that you go on a racist tirade, and then afterwards have the nerve to whine about anti-semitism. It is exactly those sort of attitudes that lead to oppression, ethnic cleanising and genocide.

Muzahaf on May 7, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Shame on you Debbie for peddling such ignorant racist garbage.

Nabeel on May 12, 2012 at 11:41 am

Debbie..you’re a Jewish LOSER…Racist and ignorant..SHAME ON YOU..

yaso on May 16, 2012 at 4:49 pm

it’s funny how I read a column from this person about Nazi missile experts working in the US and how it hurt her feelings. Now she is talking about extreme Islamists. Here’s an idea. Go back to Europe where you came from. Was there a reason they didn’t want you there? Semites are Arabs not Europeans from Warsaw. Lastly if you think these Muslims are so bad – at least their religion doesn’t think every single non-jew is subhuman cattl;e and should be a slave to Jews. At least their religion doesn’t advocate raping 3 year old children and saying that it’s okay. These are explicit in the Torah and talmud.

Sanity on June 26, 2012 at 4:41 am

You’re a bitter, racist, pathetic woman

Brian Beddowes on November 15, 2012 at 9:42 am

WOW, the RASICTS are many. Did you know that the only so called DEMOCRATIC nation in the Middle East has over 20 laws that are anti-ARAB. For example, there are roads a Palestinian cannot use. They cannot get building permits in certain areas even though their Jewish neighbors can. Former Arab natives cannot return to their land even though Jews with no connection to the land have a legal “Right of Return”. The Israeli army is illegally occupying E Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza despite international law and world opinion. What are these poor people who live in an open prison expected to do? Israel has 200-300 NUKES and does not allow UN inspectors- so who are the real terrorists?

Con on December 9, 2012 at 1:21 am

Correct, Con, West Bank Arabs (not all Arabs) cannot use the bypass roads. But the reason these roads were originally built (if I recall correctly) was so that Israeli traffic would not intrude on Arab cities. With the advent of the intifadas, the roads became a way for Israelis to avoid terror attacks. Sounds okay to me!

The Israeli army is LEGALLY in the liberated territories. This is clearly recognized even by the international community, in UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338.

There is no “open prison” in Gaza; that is a canard. Gaza is a terrorist state bent on Israel’s destruction. Do you want Israel to open the border? No problem: stop the terror attacks!
