Mark Ruffalo apologizes to Israel for genocide charges
It is safe to watch The Avengers movies again.
Thanks Mark Ruffalo. The Jewish community around the world, and all of Israel, can once again breathe fresh air. For two weeks, people were too scared to move after the actor’s release an anti-Israel Tweet accusing the country of committing acts of genocide during the recent fighting in Gaza. Well now, thank the Lord, he’s backed down.
You would think it shouldn’t be so disturbing for a Hollywood actor to condemn Israel on such harsh terms. But this is not just any actor. Remember, Mark Ruffalo is the Incredible Hulk. After that? Will Superman condemn Israel as racist or accuse it of committing war crimes? God forgive!
So what exactly did Ruffalo say anyway? Mark Ruffalo tweeted: “1,500 Palestinians face deportation to # Jerusalem. 200 demonstrators were injured. 9 children were killed. Sanctions against South Africa have helped liberate its black people – it’s time to sanction Israel to liberate the Palestinians. Join the call. “
Well, after having had two weeks to “think it over,” the actor apparently changed his mind. Now he tweeted: “I thought about it and wanted to apologize for the messages posted during the recent Israel / Hamas fighting which suggested that Israel was committing ‘genocide’. This is not accurate, it is inflammatory, disrespectful and is used to justify anti-Semitism here and abroad. Now is the time to avoid hyperbole. “

So what has changed? Maybe his Marvel co-star Scarlett Johansson caught him. She is a well-known Zionist sympathizer who carried out an advertising campaign for the Israeli company Soda Stream. Or maybe those Jews who control Hollywood threatened Mark’s career.
Either way, the news is certainly no relief for anyone.
Now, no one is looking forward to similar apologies from John Oliver, Trevor Noah, Lena Headey, Susan Sarandon, Viola Davis…
