Angelina Jolie and Oliver Stone’s Terrorist Problem

By Debbie Schlussel

The box office flop of “Alexander” is cause for celebration.

That Stone’s pretentious film debuted at a weak sixth place—well behind the animated “The Incredibles” and “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie”—is even better.

Not because of its debatable portrayal of “Alexander the Great” as bisexual.

But because “Alexander’s” director, Oliver Stone, and star, Angelina Jolie, are Soft On Terrorism.  Extremely soft.  Especially Palestinian terrorism.


Remember the 2002 Passover Massacre, when a Palestinian suicide bomber blew up 29 innocent, elderly Israelis celebrating the important Jewish holiday?

Right after that, Oliver Stone paid homage to Yasser Arafat, visiting the now-deceased Palestinian terrorist-in-chief at his Ramallah compound.  As if that weren’t enough, Stone had a friendly visit with Hamas Ramallah chief Hassan Yussef.

Then, Stone made a sympathetic “documentary” on Arafat for HBO (“Persona Non Grata”).  It mimicks Stone’s “talent” for presenting fiction as fact—as he did in “JFK,” “Nixon,” and “Alexander”—and glorifying malefactors and the hate-America crowd, while denigrating American institutions—as he did in “Commandante” (exalts Fidel Castro), “Born on the Fourth of July,” “Natural Born Killers,” and “Platoon.”

Stone said he made the Arafat cellu-lie in a search for “long-term classical values: what your life was like, what the meaning of your suffering was, what regrets you have.”  In case you can’t tell, the “you” and “your” refers to Arafat.  No Stone documentary on the classical values and suffering of any of Arafat’s victims, though.  Instead, Stone’s 80 hours of footage include many interviews with Palestinian homicide bombers.

In an interview with famed Hollywood “Variety” columnist Army Archerd, Stone said of the homicide bombers that he “understands why they feel the way they do.”

Stone denied documented reports that the Palestine Authority used terrorism as a strategic means to get a Palestinian State.  When Archerd told him of the anti-Semitic education of Palestinian youths and the glorification of suicide bombing, Stone both denied and justified it, saying, “The memories are long as are the grudges and feuds.”

Stone also said, “The (Jewish) settlements (on the West Bank)  . . . . The Israelis have no business in the West Bank.  The settlements have to be gotten out of the West Bank.”  How about getting Oliver Stone out of West Hollywood?!  Or better yet, the movie biz.  Stone also likened Jewish residents—including those of suburban Jerusalem—to “vigilantes of the Old West in America.”

So, we know Oliver Stone supports bigoted ethnic redlining in residential areas.  What if the U.S. Government told him he wasn’t allowed to live in his Hollywood mansion because of his ethnicity?  (In a stab at exoticism, he claims to be African-American, Anglo-Saxon, German, Jewish, Irish, and all other ethnicities he could think of.)


Then there is Angelina Jolie.

She spends a lot of time in “Alexander” with snakes writhing around her, saying that she “loves” snakes and “understands them.  They became like my family, my accessories.”

That might explain the snakes she’s hanging out with as a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the UN High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR).  In July, Jolie attended the Arab Children’s Congress in Amman, Jordan.

Organized by Jordan’s Queen Noor and billed as a way to support children and protect their rights, it’s really an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hate-fest.  Several groups which organized the Congress are “charities” known to fund terror.   Dubai, which has strong ties to 9/11 hijackers and other terrorists, funded much of the Congress.

The annual meeting is a kid’s version of the UN Conference on Racism—where any problem for Arab children anywhere in the Arab World (and five European countries, which sent kid delegates) is the fault of the Jews and Israel.  Through drama, dance, painting, and crafts, they teach the children young — all with movie star Angelina Jolie as a willing participant and the guest of honor.  Pictures across the Arab world showed her kissing Queen Noor during the conference.

During the conference, Jolie, in a Jordan Times interview, said that she “hoped to be able to bring aid and awareness to conflict zones not covered by the media.”  But Jolie must be blind and deaf, because the only “conflicted” people she speaks of are the most overly media-covered group, the Palestinians.  “Here, so many people have been uprooted for so long and have such terrible living conditions,” Jolie lamented, adding that she planned to travel to “Palestine” soon.

If Jolie were truly interested, she might wonder why Palestinian refugees are still refugees—why they live in such living conditions and why for so long they’ve been without a country.  Instead of commending Jordan “for hosting the world’s largest group of Palestinian refugees . . . for more than 50 years,” it just might occur to her that they are still refugees because Jordan and the other Arab countries represented at the Arab Children’s Conference won’t allow Palestinian refugees to be absorbed—for fear of losing a political tool against Israel.  They won’t allow them to live outside the refugee camps, own property, or use public services as regular human beings.

In Jolie’s favorite Middle East tourist spot—the “Hashemite Kingdom” of Jordan, Palestinians are not allowed to run their own country.  Palestinians are between 70 and 90 percent of Jordan’s population, but are ruled by Hashemites, like King Abdullah.   Instead of recognizing this, Jolie called Palestinian refugees in Jordan “displaced” from their country, thanked Jordan “for keeping its border open,” and commended the Jordanian government “for hosting the world’s largest group of Palestinian refugees  . . . for more than 50 years.”

Jolie claims, “I will always be a great supporter of children’s rights,” but she doesn’t seem to care much about the rights of the child victims of Palestinian terrorism, only the progeny of those who commit and support it.  A much-heralded December 2003 visitor to the Ruweished Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan, Jolie wrote diaries lamenting the treatment of Palestinians.  While she doesn’t mention Israel by name or specifically endorse cold-blooded murder, you get the drift.  She approvingly quotes the kids and a play they do about Jerusalem “about Arab children and how they live”:

“Palestine was sold by merchants.  God knows we are injured and hurt.  Be patient we will take our revenge [sic] we will take our homes back  . . . . (Smiles, fists in the air)  Palestine, your name is in our veins. . . .Their dream is to see their homeland. . . .  It was very moving to hear them speak of the dream.”

Hmmm, Angelina, what do these precious refugee kiddies mean by, “We will take our revenge”?  Which part of that was “very moving?”  No disapproval from Ms. “Tombraider,” anywhere.  Instead, she marvels at and sympathizes with this cute and cuddly group of “frightened” children.  In fact, Ruweished, like all Palestinian refugee camps, is a training ground for terrorists–the future revered profession of Angelina’s new little friends.

And a lot of the refugees at the Ruweished camp, near the border of Iraq, are not even Palestinians.  Some are Somalis.  Others are the hundreds of Palestinians living in Iraq who fled at the start of the U.S. War on Iraq.  When they wanted to return to Iraq, UNRWA (the UN agency we fund with millions, which runs the camp) tried to coerce them to stay at the camp.

But hoping Jolie would get a clue on this is like wishing the contents of her head were as robust as that of her lips.  It’s like hoping she would, indeed be “Gone in 60 Seconds,” instead of helping those who support “Taking Lives.”

With his and Jolie’s “Alexander” a huge flop in America, Stone said the more sophisticated Europeans “tend to see me a little differently than they do in the U.S.”

Wrong.  Americans just see this Emperor-with-no-Clothing’s “films” for what they really are:  cinema not-so-verité.

Instead, they chose to see “SpongeBob,” knowing that Stone’s offerings are the real cartoons.

yeah the photos really demonstrate how much it’s really a “hate-fest”, pathetic.

TruthSpeaker on November 10, 2010 at 6:18 pm

You are such a misinformed ‘journalist’. You appear to have never even studied the Arab-Israeli conflict. It is sad that you support the terrorist state of Israel. It is true that in many cases the Arabs have not acted smartly in the past, but come on, it is Israel that has pushed it so many times. The Dier Yassin Massacre, the King David Hotel bombings, the Sabra and Shatila Massacre. Get a clue before you go off corrupting the minds of idiots that care to listen to you and your mindless rants.

Olivia on April 3, 2011 at 4:24 am

you are the most immature, sad excuse for a journalist i have ever seen. my grandfather was in a line up and shot by the scum of the earth israelis. he survived and lived to tell his horrific story after he moved out. the palestinians live there. it is PALESTINE. i don’t understand that logic, the “Israelis” think they can come into someone’s home and kill them, take it and call it a day. sorry sweetie pie, that’s not how to world works. viva palestina! god bless the palestinians, i am one of them, proudly.

laila on April 20, 2011 at 10:33 pm

No question this is the place to get this info, thnaks y’all.

Lefty on July 23, 2011 at 6:19 pm

Is killing 1000 kids in 10 years terrorism ????

StoCazzo on September 15, 2011 at 6:23 pm

So basically in laymen terms, anyone humane or who just speaks truth is anti semitic?? Is that right deb? Even Angie helping underprivileged children is considered “anti israeli”? So the world can support any child in the world as long as they’re not Palestinian right???? Please correct me if I’ve read your garbage wrong. Get a grip on life!! This sort of tirade served the Nazi’s well and it seems zionism (aka Nazism of today) has adopted the method of their oppressor. So listen up world, in order to NOT be deemed an “anti semite” you must never ever ever talk about what Israel does and never ever ever help a dying Palestinian child. deb go live in Palestine then maybe just maybe your blogs may improve on credibility.

you dumb blond bimbo, you don´t know squat about anything and yet you publicize your erroneous views and probably manage to convince a few clueless idiots. you´re a disgrace to any and all kinds of writers.

Alex on October 4, 2011 at 8:50 am

    Dan, if Israel was a woman she’d be sleeping with as many men she could get her legs round to pump out as many ‘Israelis’ as she could to flood the Occupied Territories with. I wouldn’t bother marrying her – why buy the cow when the milk is free ?

    Frank Rosen on August 4, 2014 at 4:01 pm

    The blond is not too dumb though (if you don’t mind selling your soul for the coins) – loads of wealthy Zionists are probably pushing money at her to support her ‘site’… aka lie machine. Scribes and Pharisees remember ?

    Frank Rosen on August 4, 2014 at 4:04 pm

You are an idiot. I am ashamed I wasted ten minutes of my life reading that bunk. You are biased, you are uneducated and you are brainwashed. For every story you have about Palestinian terrorism, there will certainly be an Israeli one to go along with it. The superiority complex of Zionist Jews is disgusting, the displacement taking place in the Middle East by the Israelis is like our Scotland’s own Highland Clearances.

You know what? Your post is so ludicrous that I can’t be bothered to educate you further- you are a fucking imbecile.

Mark Robbins on February 9, 2012 at 8:27 pm

what is israel? i don’t know that someone here can respond me to it …

Mehdi on May 18, 2012 at 8:58 am

Im disappointed I wish this journalist would post a report not
the authors own views.Its a shame.
Also Israelis should look back at what happened to them and
hold honor to that tragedy.Instead they do they same thing
innocent people.Judgement day will come Israelis are just racking up more crimes against themselves.NO WHERE TO RUN

emma on July 9, 2012 at 12:01 am

God you need to smell the coffee, for years and years now, Palestinians throw stones, while you Zionist shoot them, the poor fuckers are living in an open prison, they cant even import something without Israel permission, and you wonder why they become suicide bombers, their not terrorist, their soldiers, Israel will fail soon..
The world is starting to wake up, as it did with South Africa.. You guys are doing exactly what the Germans did to you, sorry worse…. Absolute scum of the Earth..

Andrew on August 8, 2012 at 8:47 am

It’s so unfortunate the way you so blindly support Israel. I think you need to visit Palestine, Debbie. Maybe then you’ll realize who the real enemy is.

Proud Pali girl on July 29, 2014 at 10:20 pm

It’s funny how the supporters of Israel are calling the innocent Palestine “terrorists”. Who came to whose home now? Israelians are the one stealing people’s home and killing the citizens after. They are the one creating terror among the palestinians, THEY ARE THE TERRORISTS! And so you are calling children with only rocks as their weapon, bodies as their armor “terrorists”? You are an irrelevant and biased stupid blonde woman.

Jew-hatred is an inextricable compnent of Islamic doctrine — Both Shiite and Sunni Muslims invoke the infamous hadith attributed to Muhammad: “The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: ‘Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.'” Each Friday this genocidal hadith is quoted in sermons across the Islamic world, including among U.S. Muslim communities.
