Several high-profile Hollywood figures have stood against Israel’s detractors recently, drawing praise from the New York Post. While anti-Israel sentiment abounds in Tinsel-town, there are those who stand up for the Jewish State.
Famed talk show and personality and magazine publisher Oprah Winfrey was approached by BDS supporters to publicly reject Israeli jeweler Lev Leviev’s products. A delegation came to her magazine’s offices in New York, bearing a letter with the group’s demands, after Oprah was seen wearing Leviev’s creations on the cover of O magazine last month. The group accused Leviev of stealing Palestinian land and committing human-rights abuses in Angola.
Oprah and her executive staff refused to meet with the agitators, and did not accept the letter they came to deliver.
