Pro-Israel Celebrities

With yet more celebrities coming out against Israel, now seems like a good time to publish this post which I have been working on for a while.

Below is a list of celebrities (dead and alive) who were/are either definitely pro-Israel or have somehow been associated with a pro-Israel cause. Where there is an article proving this, I have linked the celebrity’s name to it. Where an article lists many such celebrities, I have included it under General Sources after the complete list of names.

Note that this post is designed to be a work-in-progress, and not a complete list of pro-Israel celebrities. If you know of other pro-Israel celebrities, please leave their names in the comments, as well as a links to proof of this, and I will update the post accordingly.

    Jason Alexander are you kidding me. He and his leftist buddies went to Israel to tell Israel to give land to the Terrorists…Oh wait I’m sorry the so called “Pallestinians”

    Half these people don’t ‘Support’ Israel per say, they are for both sides to be established. Some of them have never even spoken about it, they’re just Jewish. A lot of Jews here in NY actually are ‘Against’ Israel and Zionism, there are whole organizations made entirely of Jews who are against Israel.

    Howie Mandel supports Israel.
    The late Harpo Marx was an avid Zionist. He even bequeathed his harp to Israel in his will. This is true.
    The late showman, Billy Rose was a Zionist and bequeathed his sculpture collection to Israel. There is now the Billy Rose Sculpture Garden in Jerusalem.
    The late actor Canada Lee was a supporter of Israel.
    The late actor Jeff Chandler was a supporter of Israel.

  • Robbie (Reuven)

    I apologize for repeating Harpo Marx, whom I originally listed on Nov. 21st.
    I heard the late actress, Shelley Winters, speak at a pro-Israeli rally.
    Lauren Bacall is a cousin of Shimon Peres and took some actions on behalf of Israel.
    Actor, Ben Vereen is pro-Israeli and appeared on a telethon for Israel.
    Gabe Kaplan is pro-Israeli.

  • Robbie (Reuven)

    Also singer-actor, Pat Boone should be added to the list of celebrity supporters of Israel.

    Stephen Baldwin is veruy pro-Israeli.

    what about Rashida Jones … the daughter of Peggy Lipton … i recently heard that she is becoming more religious …. very dedicated to Israel … just to let you know …

  • Dan

    Sarah Silverman.

    • Judge Dan
      • Dan

        She doesn’t exactly fit my definition of anti-Israel eg. Ken Loach. She’s not anti-Palestinian, but she is not anti-Israel either. The two are not mutually exclusive. She has performed in Israel, and even did an interview on an Israeli news station.

  • Dan

    Ian Anderson and Mariah Carey, too.

  • Lilfid

    BULLSHIT !!!

  • Dan

    I can’t find anything that says Halle Berry is pro-Israel.

  • Dan

    I’m sorry, but I’m having trouble making sense of this article. At the top of the page, it describes the celebrities coming out against the settlement project as anti-Israel, and yet there are numerous celebrities on this list who have done pretty much the same thing. I don’t understand. What is your definition of anti-Israel?

  • Dan

    One last thing, this page could certainly use an update.

  • Dan

    You forgot the most important one of all.

    Looks like you’ll be able to add the Rolling Stones to the list :)

    Still a little premature to list them officially, but it’s nice to have them in the wings.

    This shit makes me sick .

  • ygalg

    Ben Kingsley pro israeli?

  • reuven

    Add John Wayne, Sophia Lauren, and yes, Marlon Brando to Israel supporters.

  • reuven

    I saw that video too. It’s definitely not Tom Cruise.

  • Silk

    Madonna giving the finger… Charming. That’s just the kind of gesture I’d expect from Jews or pro-Jewish people. Typical and classless.
