Anti-Israel Celebrity Of The Day: John Cusack Will Say Anything

John Cusack will say anything, it seems, even when he has no idea what he is talking about.

While attending an award ceremony in Sweden honoring American fugitive from justice Edward Snowden and Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger, he tweeted:

While it has become common place for Israel’s critics to complain about Israel’s security fence, despite the fact that it has saved countless lives, most of the people complaining at least know where it is . . . . But never mind the details.

Anything, that is, other than accept liberation that was offered to them in 2000 and 2008. Or, if he’s talking about Gaza (at this point it’s unclear, since he doesn’t seem to know where the “apartheid wall” is), then also in 2005.

Oh, hey, great news, Sweden has now come to its senses, and now formerly recognizes Palestine. Wait, is that what you meant?

This is not the first time Cusack has expressed his disdain for Israel on twitter. Back in July, he called Israel’s Operation Protective Edge “murder.”

Apparently playing an assassin in a movie doesn’t teach a person how to distinguish between murder and self-defense.
