Actor Jon Voight has written an angry open letter to his colleagues – namely Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem – over their support for Palestine.

The 75-year-old, a long-time supporter of Israel, says actors who have joined the ‘Free Palestine’ movement are ‘obviously ignorant’ of the facts.

As a guest columnist of The Hollywood Reporter, Voight says he is ‘more than angry, I am heartsick’ at an open letter signed by Cruz, Bardem, director Pedro Almodovar and other Spanish film industry names denouncing the Israeli/Palestinian conflict as genocide.

Voight doesn’t hold back, writing: ‘I am asking all my peers who signed that poison letter against Israel to examine their motives. You should hang your heads in shame. You should all come forth with deep regrets for what you did, and ask forgiveness from the suffering people in Israel.’

It’s not the first time Voight has attacked his fellow actors over their support for Palestine. He wrote a letter – similarly worded to the one against Cruz and Bardem – in 2009, accusing Jane Fonda of ‘aiding and abetting those who seek the destruction of Israel’.

Voight is a staunch Republican, having spoken out about criticism of George W Bush in 2007, saying criticism of Bush was in fact criticism of America. That didn’t stop him calling Barack Obama a ‘false prophet’ at a 2009 Republican fundraiser.

Penelope Cruz has clarified her statements on Israel after using the word “genocide” to describe her views in a statement.

“I don’t want to be misunderstood on this important subject. I’m not an expert on the situation and I’m aware of the complexity of it,” the 40-year-old actress said in a statement to JustJared.com. “My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace in both Israel and Gaza. I am hopeful all parties can agree to a cease fire and there are no more innocent victims on either side of the border. I wish for unity, and peace… I believe in a civilization that can be capable of bringing the courage to have a world where humans can live side by side.”

Dozens of Spanish film stars, directors, musicians and writers, led by Oscar winners Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Pedro Almodovar, have denounced Israel’s incursion into Gaza.

In an open letter referenced by Europa Press and other Spanish media, they described Israel’s actions as “genocide.”

They also called on the European Union to “condemn the bombing by land, sea and air against the Palestinian civilian population in the Gaza Strip.”

In the open letter, they demanded a cease-fire by the Israeli military and urged Israel to “lift the blockade, which the Gaza Strip has suffered for more than a decade.”

The letter also said: “Gaza is living through horror these days, besieged and attacked by land, sea and air. Palestinians’ homes are being destroyed, they are being denied water, electricity [and] free movement to their hospitals, schools and fields while the international community does nothing.”

Others who signed the letter include directors Montxo Armendariz and Benito Zambrano; actors Lola Herrera, Eduardo Noriega and Rosa Maria Sarda; and musicians Amaral and Nacho Campillo.

The entertainers blamed the new round of violence in the Middle East on the occupation of Palestinian land by Israel, which, the letter said, “continues to advance into and invade the Palestinian territories instead of returning to the 1967 borders.”

Almost 1,100 Palestinians and 56 Israelis have died since the Israeli military began its bombardments of Gaza three weeks ago, according to the latest reports.

Bardem, who won the Oscar for supporting actor in 2008 for his role in No Country for Old Men, is a known political activist who frequently expounds on controversial issues.

Cruz won an Oscar in the best supporting actress category in Woody Allen‘s Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2009.

The two are married and are good friends with Almodovar, who has won two Oscars: one for best foreign language film for All About My Mother (2000) and one for best original screenplay for Talk to Her (2002).

THR has reached out to reps for Bardem, Cruz and Almodovar and will update with any additional comment.
