Jon Voight Slams Palestinian Terror: “We Are Facing a New Holocaust and People of All Faiths Must Demand the Truth Be Heard”
Jon Voight slammed Palestinian terrorism at an Israeli event about the Holocaust organized by Glenn Beck. Earlier in the week Voight visited victims of Palestinian terrorism.
Voight delivered a powerful speech at the event, asking participants, “How have we come to a time when blowing up babies and cutting their throats are an acceptable means to a political goal?”
The Jerusalem Post reported, via Israel Matzav:
Oscar-winning American actor Jon Voight slammed Palestinian terrorism Monday, at a Jerusalem event about the Holocaust organized by broadcaster Glenn Beck.
Voight, who is not Jewish, praised Israel and the Jewish people in his speech. He made reference to suicide bombings and to the March 11 slayings of the Fogel family in Itamar.
“How have we come to a time when blowing up babies and cutting their throats are an acceptable means to a political goal?” Voight asked.
“I feel complete contempt for anyone not intelligent enough to see that the media propaganda portraying the Palestinians as victims endangers the state of Israel.
“We are facing a new holocaust, and people of all faiths must demand that the truth be heard. The Palestinian radicals have only one prayer on their lips: To remove every Jew from Israel.”
Voight received a standing ovation for saying “We will not bend to terrorism in any way, shape, or form for the sake of peace.”
The event, which was carried on Beck’s new television network, featured a film about Holocaust survivor Rudy Wolf’s visit to his childhood home in Germany. Speakers at the event noted the significance of holding a Holocaust themed evening at the former Jerusalem train station after world armies did not bomb the tracks to Auschwitz in World War II.
