#BDS: Hollywood stars salute Israel

Movie industry figures attend gala event in support of Jewish state at Kodak Theater, complete with limousines, red carpet, paparazzi. Actor Jon Voight: World playing a dangerous game by going against Israel

Hollywood stars, red carpets and Israel: More than 500 people were present at an event dedicated to Israel held in Hollywood on Monday, including reel stars, movie industry veterans and local business figures.

All came to express their support for Israel. The exclusive event, entitled "From Vision to Reality," opened in traditional Hollywood style with a glittering red carpet walk. Guests arrived one after the other, drawing up in limousines and stepping out onto the expanse of red where photographers waited, then going on to give interviews to TV networks and speaking warmly of Israel.

Among those attending were Jon Voight, father of Angelina Jolie; Shaun Toub, known for his role in Crash; actor and scriptwriter Howard Rosenman, Beverly Hills Mayor Jimmy Delshad; Israeli-American producer Avi Arad; Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon; and actor-models Moran Atias and Noa Tishby, who also MC'ed the event. Representatives from Hollywood's major studios were also present.

  1. I dont think it was successful. If John Voight is the biggest name than it was a failure. Voight is estranged from Jolie and is regarded as a right-wing nut really.
