Penelope Cruz and hubby Javier Bardem issued an open letter accusing Israel of being the aggressor in the Gaza conflict.

Then, in a change of heart, motivated by the realization a Palestinian will likely not be the source of her next booking, she tried to walk it all back..

 “Gaza is living through horror these days, besieged and attacked by land, sea and air. Palestinians’ homes are being destroyed, they are being denied water, electricity [and] free movement to their hospitals, schools and fields while the international community does nothing.”

Then came the walk-back via claims of ignorance. Agreed.

“I don’t want to be misunderstood on this important subject. I’m not an expert on the situation and I’m aware of the complexity of it. My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace in both Israel and Gaza. I am hopeful all parties can agree to a cease fire and there are no more innocent victims on either side of the border. I wish for unity, and peace… I believe in a civilization that can be capable of bringing the courage to have a world where humans can live side by side.” source

So Israel is supposed to trust terrorists to move forth peacefully? Remember kiddies, (and booking agents, producers, etc,) never forget..
