Following Roger Water’s disgusting, but predictable, rant against Israel, we were “greeted” today with the news that
Toe Pearl Jam’s Darth Eddie Vedder – an apparent friend of Waters – had also revealed his true, Israel-hating colors.
And I am sure we will hear from the usual wretched hive of celebrity scum and villainy over the course of this war. But instead of focusing on them, I would like to point out those celebrities who have spoken out for Israel during this difficult time.
Actor Greg Grunberg:
It’s disgraceful how the press is under-reporting what is happening in #Israel.

NBC affiliate weatherman Tim Miller (hat tip: Johnny Massengill):
Musician Phil Soussan:
Disturbed singer David Draiman, who has been tweeting voraciously for Israel (the below is but one example).

Life goes on here in Israel despite the rockets raining on us. Of course I was seriously wounded in ’48 ignoring air raid siren!

Mayim Bialik (hat tip: Eric):

Yael Markovich, Miss International Israel 2012 at a big pro Israel rally in LA:
(Yael said this for Israellycool: “When they stop acting like animals and start acting like human beings, we will have peace not just in Israel… but on earth!”)
600 missiles been fired from GAZA by Hamas in the last 4 days. NUMBERS DONT LIE. STOP LYING.

Becky Griffin (who is a very outspoken supporter of Israel):
In criminal and international law, there is “self-defense”. If you are against Israel’s right to defend itself — you are an ignorant racist

I will hopefully be able to add to this list. If you find any other celebrities speaking out for Israel now, please let me know in the comments.
