American actor and staunch Republican Jon Voight has submitted a public letter to The Washington Times, in which he accused President Barack Obama of putting Israel in harm's way and promoting anti-Semitism across the world.
"You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies," wrote Voight, who last year called Obama a false prophet.
"You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone's enemy - and it has resonated throughout the world," he wrote. "You are putting Israel in harm's way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world."
"You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today. The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientists and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs," he wrote.
"But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals who want Israel eradicated."
"You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens. Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics," he added.
Voight signed off his letter by writing: "With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel."
