Dislike For Israel On The Rise: Highly Rated Oscar Nominees Turned Down Trip To Israel

Is there anything new under the sun? Just like the Bible says, nothing new. What has been will always be. Israel has been, either we like it or not a finger of God, to prove to the whole that their is God, a Supreme being that created the universe and all things that dwells there in, either spiritually or physically.

But most people have failed to understand it. Israel at the moment will be a nation that God will use in the end time to make people believe that truly God and as well Jesus Christ is real.

As for now, hatred for Israel is welcomed because it is the fulfillment of Bible prophesies. For the word of God must be fulfilled. "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:11 KJV.

From Israel Today
"Of the 25 leading candidates to win an Academy Award last year, none chose to exercise the offer by the Ministry of Tourism to enjoy a free upscale vacation in Israel.

According to the company that gives the special gift bags to Oscar nominees, the only Hollywood star to make any use of the Israeli gift card was Jennifer Lawrence, who gave it to her parents.

Some, like British actor Mark Rylance, star of the movie “Bridge of Spies,” openly rejected the Israeli offer.

With the 2017 Oscars just around the corner, pro-Palestinian groups told AFP that the failure of the Israeli gift card last year was due to their pressure on Hollywood stars to boycott the Jewish state.   The Oscar gift bags contain about $200,000 worth of gifts. Valued at $55,000, the Israeli officer of first class airfare, 5-star accommodations and culinary experiences for two is one of the more expensive offerings.

Pro-Palestinian activists have accused Israel of using the expensive gifts to trick Hollywood stars into photo-ops that would benefit the Jewish state. They have urged the celebrities to shun Israel, just as they refused to visit apartheid South Africa in the 1980s.

Among the groups pressuring celebrities to NOT visit Israel are liberal Jewish organizations like “Jews for Peace,” which warned Hollywood stars that by visiting Israel they would be identifying with the “occupation of Palestine.”

That seems to have been enough to scare off every single one of last year’s top Oscar nominees. We’ll wait and see if the pressure works again this year.

Meanwhile, Israel’s Ministry of Tourism said that while the 25 Oscar nominees didn’t visit, a great many other Hollywood stars did come to Israel over the past year, and returned home as newly-minted goodwill ambassadors for the Jewish state.
