Oscar Winning Actor “Disappointed” In Daughter’s Anti-Israel Stance
Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight is one of President Trump’s most vocal supporters, which is a rarity in Hollywood. But his daughter, fellow Academy Award winner, Angelina Jolie leans to the far left.
A few days ago, Jolie wrote a post on social media, calling for a ceasefire in the conflict. She also blamed war leaders, who she called complicit, for not demanding one.
On Friday, Voight posted a video on social media, saying he was disappointed by his daughter’s support for a ceasefire in Gaza, saying that it was war and they “can’t be civil now.”

From Fox News:
Jolie condemned Hamas’ attack against Israel in a post on social media but said it did not justify “the innocent lives lost in bombing a civilian population in Gaza that has nowhere to go.”
“Humanity demands an immediate ceasefire. Palestinian and Israeli lives – and the lives of all people globally – matter equally,” she said in a post on Instagram.
Voight posted a video to social media on Friday and said he was “disappointed” that his daughter had “no understanding of God’s honor.”
“This is about destroying the history of God’s land — the Holy Land — the land of the Jews. This is justice for God’s children of the holy land,” he continued. “The Israeli army must protect thy soil, thy people,” Voight said in his video.
“This is war. It’s not going to be what the left thinks — it can’t be civil now,” he continued.
Jolie called for a ceasefire again days later after claiming that Gaza was “fast becoming a mass grave,” in another Instagram post.
“By refusing to demand a humanitarian ceasefire and blocking the UN Security Council from imposing one on both parties, world leaders are complicit in these crimes,” she wrote.
“Israel was attacked by inhuman terror on innocent babies, mothers, fathers, grandparents,” Voight said. “These animals want to wipe out Jews, Christians.”
“Allow the force of truths and justice to bring us all together and recognize that Hamas and this deceit of their ruling is destroying their own people, not Israel,” he continued.
A lot of social media users agreed with Voight’s message and many thanked him for his words.
Thank you for your words of wisdom.

I stand with you Jon, and for the innocent as we endure biblical times. It is a showdown between Good vs Evil. The devil has shown his face.

May God bless and protect you, Jon, for the stands that you choose to take, to help protect both our nation, and nations like Israel, who are our trusted ally, both politically and ideologically!
