“Streep did, in fact, omit the country when she was talking about Dev Patel being raised in another famous city – London – rather than saying London, UK – while American star Sarah Paulson was mentioned as only having been born in Florida. But the conspiracy theorists believe Streep’s omission of Israel could reflect a hidden anti-Israel bias.”
The Daily Mail, the worst paper in the Western world, doesn’t tell you that it isn’t just “conspiracy theorists” who think this. There is no controversy over what countries London or Florida are in. There is a huge controversy over Jerusalem, and Streep almost certainly was afraid of offending the hard-Left Hollywood glitterati, who have followed the rest of the hard Left into an increasingly anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian jihad stance.
“Now Meryl Streep is accused of being anti-Israel at the Golden Globes after merely saying Natalie Portman is from ‘Jerusalem’ – while mentioning every other actor’s home nation,” by Hannah Parry, Dailymail.com, January 10, 2017:
Meryl Streep has been accused of being ‘anti-Israel’ after she said Natalie Portman was from Jerusalem at the Golden Globes.
Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, had launched a blistering attack on Donald Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars.
But while the president-elect may have been the target, the three-time Oscar winner managed to insult football, MMA and now, according to some, the state of Israel, which has battled with the State of Palestine for decades over ownership of Jerusalem.
Attacking Trump’s divisive rhetoric towards immigrants, Streep said that ‘Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners.’
‘The beautiful Ruth Negga was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and was raised in Ireland… Ryan Gosling, like all the nicest people is Canadian. And Dev Patel was born in Kenya, raised in London, is here playing an Indian, raised in Tasmania.
‘Sarah Paulson was born in Florida… Amy Adams was born in Vicenzia, Italy, and Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem. Where are their birth certificates?
Some have pounced on the fact that Streep chose to only mention that Portman was from the world famous city of Jerusalem, and not the country of Israel.
‘Meryl Streep at Golden Globes was anti-Israel’, one viewer tweeted. ‘Anti-Israel left refuses to say Israel.’
‘Notice Meryl Streep named every actor’s foreign country except Israel,’ another added.
Trump’s Kellyanne Conway, who has criticized Streep’s speech, also waged in on the backlash, tweeting a link to a story in conservative political news website FreeBeacon, with the caption ‘That too.’
Streep did, in fact, omit the country when she was talking about Dev Patel being raised in another famous city – London – rather than saying London, UK – while American star Sarah Paulson was mentioned as only having been born in Florida.
