Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging.

Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli citizens fleeing for their lives.

But while such silver screen luminaries as Penelope Cruz, Rihanna, and Selena Gomez have criticized Israel’s response to the rocket and terror attacks, a string of top Hollywood A-listers recently signed a petition backing Jerusalem and condemning Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules the Gaza Strip.

Evidently, the statement, initiated by a group called Creative Community for Peace and signed by close to 200 Hollywood heavyweights, has tapped a reservoir of goodwill towards Israel.
