Natalie Portman represents the worst of the Jewish people. Portman is vilifying the country of her birth to appease the radical left-wing elites in Hollywood. There is nothing racist about Israel’s nation-state law. The law states the obvious: that Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people. Israel’s nation-state law will not change the fact that Israel provides full human rights to all of its citizens. Jews and non-Jews alike. No other country in the Middle East can make such a claim truthfully. Not even close.
Israel’s Arab citizens are doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, engineers, and work in many other fields. Israeli Arabs are members of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) and are members of Israel’s high court. Yet this blithering idiot Portman chooses to attack (and lie about) Israel at a time when Israel is defending itself from “Palestinian” terror attacks, and at a time when the BDS movement is raging.
Has Portman ever condemned Palestinian racism, brutality, incitement, and terror publicly? Has Portman ever condemned the racist BDS movement with the same intensity that she regularly besmirches Israel? No, she hasn’t. What a coward Portman is. It would be interesting to know how much Portman believes she can advance her career by betraying the country of her birth on Arab television. Natalie Portman is a neo-Kapo.
“Natalie Portman slams Israel’s nation-state law as ‘racist,’” b
JTA — Natalie Portman isn’t a fan of Israel’s controversial nation-state law, which defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people but does not specify equal rights for all Israeli citizens.
The Jerusalem-born actress slammed the law, which was criticized as it was debated and adopted over the summer, in an interview with BBC’s Arabic language channel broadcast Sunday.
“It’s racist and there’s nothing else to say about that,” Portman said. “It’s wrong and I disagree with that.”
Israel passed the law, which was sponsored by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, in July. It drew ire from Jews in Israel and abroad for appearing to relegate Arabic to non-official language status, promoting the status of the Jewish religion in legal matters, and not specifying equal rights for all Israeli citizens.
Others have defended it as codification of longstanding agreed-upon facts about Israel’s identity, and noted that existing legislation provides for equal rights.
This isn’t Portman’s first time speaking out about her views on Israel. Earlier this year, Portman said she would not travel to Israel to receive the Genesis Prize, an award which calls itself the “Jewish Nobel.”
“I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony,” Portman wrote in an Instagram post explaining her decision, adding that she does not endorse the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against the Jewish state….
