    I urge all these performers who are so quick to judge others to read an open letter that was written by Dan Gordon in the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles.( “Like you I am a Jew, a screenwriter and a playwright. Unlike you,the first time I was shot at I was 16.”) The if the performers want a true cause to champion it should be the liberty of Gilad Shalit . In the meantime, if they are so courageous in advocating the boycott of others they should be equally accepting of the consequence, a desire of those who disagree with them to boycott them. Reading their releases it sounds like they are spoiled children advocating for an extra treat while others bear the brunt of battle. Rest assured, I live in the Islamic world and at least 5 to 15% of those I live with would be happy to see their throats slit and their blood running in the street.
