A group of 187 celebrities—including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Mayim Bialik, Minnie Driver, Kelsey Grammer, Seth Rogen, Roseanne Barr, and Sarah Silverman—signed a letter condemning the “ideologies of hatred and genocide which are reflected in Hamas’s charter.”

The celebrities noted that Article 7 of the Palestinian terror group’s charter states, “There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!” The letter, published Sunday as an advertisement in leading American entertainment industry magazines, also said Hamas “cannot be allowed to rain rockets on Israeli cities, nor can it be allowed to hold its own people hostage.”

“Hospitals are for healing, not for hiding weapons,” the celebrities said. “Schools are for learning, not for launching missiles. Children are our hope, not our human shields.”

The letter was initiated by the Creative Community for Peace, an organization devoted to fighting economic and artistic boycotts of Israel.
