Alright, I’ve just published the Simon Wiesenthal Center‘s list for 2010 via The Jewish Journal that lists who has been labelled the Ten Most Anti-Semitic people for 2010. Go here to read that very upfront and out in the open piece of literature. Shocking!
The list was prefaced by Rabbi Marvin Hier stating: “Never before, in recent memory, has the Simon Wiesenthal Center seen such a proliferation of anti-Semitism going mainstream,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Center adding that “Our list of top ten anti-Semitic slurs runs the gamut of well-known personalities including journalists, government officials, celebrities, a prominent film director, and academics.”
Many of the quotes are classic Jewish conspiracy theories updated to reflect current anxieties, blaming the control of the media and banking sectors on Jews. “Unfortunately, our list shows that anti-Semitic canards normally thought to belong to the lunatic fringe have, in fact, been bought into by major elements of Western society,” Rabbi Hier concluded.”
As we live in a mature cultural world, here are three things that Jews did to me personally when deciding to behave badly this year. I post these on Horiwood.Com as an open sign of fairness and maturity in America–denoting how Jewish people like everyone else need to grow up too in love concerning people who are not Jewish. Let’s put this under the topic of JEWISH GOSSIP for a laugh:
1. Once I posted a blog post about British supermodel Kate Moss attending a Hope for Charity event in support of innocent Palestinian children caught up in the cross-fire of war in Gaza. This post about Kate supporting innocents in war–somehow got this blog blacklisted on The Anti-Semitic website.
2. This year a Jewish boss who did not get his way with me screamed at me at the top of their lungs: “You are nothing but an Adolph Hilter.” It was not pretty.
3. Something Jewish people have said to me personally in Hollywood at least five times this year, when monetary deals didn’t go their way as they had rather forcefully wanted to: “Why don’t you go back to New Zealand?”
Yep, those comments were hurtful and at the time I would describe their intention as being “to hurt” and framed as being so manipulatively racist too! As I have been accused of being racist on this blog many times in the past–when I don’t deliberately try to be, I told each of these people who had offended me on the spot why I thought they were racist with such comments to their face and forgave them instantly too. Only way to go!
There’s a lot of work to be done by all people in Hollywood –Jewish people and gentiles alike.
Happy Holidays everyone! Let’s keep growing, loving, forgiving, extending courtesy and mutual respect across cultures within and outside of Jewish communities all year round and everyday. Especially, here in America. Despite these minor hiccups with some members of the Jewish community, (no community is perfect) I remain Pro-Jewish as a global citizen of the world, the way I was raised to be by Kiwi parents who are Pro-Jewish too.
It’s flattering that Jewish people feel comfortable and safe in my presence to be badly behaved. After all, that’s what friends are for. :)

Mel Gibson Movie News: “The Jodie Foster-directed flick Beaver about a man (Gibson) who befriends a hand puppet will have a limited opening on March 23 with an expanded release on April 8. The movie, which also costars Foster and Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), has been in limbo because of, well, you know—Gibson’s very messy and trouble-filled personal life. Understatement of 2010!
Mel Gibson and Anti-Semitic News: This year Mel Gibson kept Hollywood tabloids going playing the ‘scary villain’ construct of Tinsel Town for over half of the year. This role is important (believe it or not) as if there is no villain, than angels of Los Angeles look pretty dull and ordinary. Someone going ‘dark and rogue-ish’ spices up their glow. A villain makes everyone else appear shinier and brighter than they actually are. In playing the scary man of Hollywood this year, Mel was dubbed a wife beater, child neglector, anti-semetic and many other nasty names in a year that saw Gibson hit Twitter’s 4th most tweeted name of the year in the world.
However, when it comes to anti-semtic quotes of the year, experts on the topic, namely The Simon Wiesenthal Center don’t give Mel a top ten ranked spot this year on their list of Jew hurtful comments. Who made their list instead? The Jewish Journal breaks down the list of all of these people behaving badly:
1. Helen Thomas: Former UPI White House Correspondent: “Jews should get the hell out of Palestine. They should go home to Germany, Poland, America and everywhere else.” -May 2010 “Congress, the White House, Hollywood and Wall Street are owned by Zionists. They put their money where their mouth is.” -December 2010
2. Oliver Stone: Hollywood film director: “Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and it’s been used cheaply. He’s the product of a series of actions. It’s cause and effect.” -January 2010. “Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people,” [there is a greater focus on the Holocaust than on Russian suffering because of] “the Jewish domination of the media.” “There’s a major lobby in the United States,” “They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up U.S. foreign policy for years.” -July 2010 (more…)
Apparently, if you have a long history in Hollywood this makes you industry fit. Wynona plays an aging prima ballerina replaced by the younger star, Natalie Portman, in Black Swan. Talking to GQ, Ryder says: “I thought it was a cool parallel. Being replaced by the young thing. I know that definitely happens in Hollywood. It’s harder to find good roles, and suddenly there’s new girls. I’m at that age I’ve been warned my whole life about.”
Winona also strikes her star against Mel Gibson‘s for a spark, re-entering the Hollywood ring, saying: “I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And he was really drunk. I was with my friend, who’s gay. He made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it.
“I’d never heard that before,” Ryder continues. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!”
Hollywood is a strange place. Here you have a Jewish girl who once shop-lifted and near over-dosed on pain killers daily for her kicks, talking “oven-dodgers” as a phrase that is not baseball related. Somehow this is Mel Gibson’s fault, her disappearance from Hollywood for the last half a decade? Huh?! I don’t get it. If you live in Hollywood you will know that (for reals) it is a virtual impossibility to be anti-semitic in Tinsel Town. Hollywood is proudly pro-Jewish and Gibson has mostly Jewish neighbors in his Mulholland Drive neighborhood. That’s a fact too. Mel was twitter’s 4th ranked star name for 2010. Out of over 6 billion other people’s names to talk about on twitter, people like talking about him–no one can take that away from Gibson.
Nice to see Winona back. Those eyes are so big and used to fame, they’d eat you. We’ve missed them.

In Oscars Hollywood history, the Cocoanut Grove was the venue celebrating Americans much loved art form of Hollywood’s cinema’s best awards for excellence.
From this image we see a Palm Tree as a symbol of Peace. Whether a palm is found in California, throughout The South Pacific, in Israel or Iran provides a message for us all to ponder as a symbol.
A palm tree grows peacefully in earth’s soil, irrespective of how people draw up maps of territory. Its a very humble tree. It just grows. Its leaves offer shade in extreme heat conditions for people and camels alike. It always signifies that water is found nearby, water being a symbol of life that all growing things need to live. A palm tree’s fruit is eaten by people of Californian, people in Iran or Israel alike. A palm tree does not discriminate. It looks after people equally.
May leaders of the world (G20 Economies Summit leaders included) all have a movie date with Peace, in their hearts concerning the future direction of the world and showing mercy to others, not all that different from ourselves.
This is California’s story in the City of Angels. We are peace messengers in The City of Angels–just like a palm tree is. May the art of peace be the most glorified American art of all and bring forth its fruit in due season.
I think an emphasis on water systems watering people who don’t have it in the world with clean drinking water, would be an intelligent thing of G20 leaders to obsess on at this point in World History. With the existing wealth all G-20 Summit leaders nations have, let’s leak some water these nations way who are without.
That’s smart leadership. Instead of just “World Economy, War Economy,” as buzz words, let’s think “Water Economy” too for all people in the world. A war on lack for the least in the world is what’s needed. That’s true power, to think that way and shows respect for basic human rights in the world.

In leaked excerpts from Sarah Palin‘s new book, on page 26 she writes:
“Certainly his [Barak Obama's] wife [Michelle Obama] expressed this view when she said during the 2008 campaign that she had never felt proud of her country until her husband started winning elections.
“In retrospect, I guess this shouldn’t surprise us, since both of them spent almost two decades in the pews of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright‘s church listening to his rants against America and white people.”
Um, does Sarah Palin give Native Alaska Indians and all Americans from Alaska a bad name or what? Let alone all Americans.
That’s so not cool. And this coming from a guy who praised her debut book for making Alaska sounding like such a cool place to visit. It’s a shame race and religion? are coloring an Obama smear campaign, and are a part of Palin’s armory now for the GOP’s causes.
The truth is, if you live in America, it’s such a diverse country. So rich and full of diverse cultures. Palin’s construct of anti-black doesn’t exist in reality. It’s archaic, so you can’t even take it seriously, unless you’ve never been outside GOP white states of America your whole life, of whom her book is written for to make a quick buck, while she claims she wants to be a future President of the US.
On the other hand, heroes are created against villains. So in a sick way, she’s acting as Michelle Obama’s star maker here too, while being a vampire and taking some blood for her troubles, to hawk a book. If black people don’t feature in her faith or flag or her family’s friends in good regard, than what nation does this women live in exactly. Not the one the rest of us do, that’s for sure.

Commentary on what is the purpose of this rally?: Undoubtedly, the man of the moment award this weekend has got to go to both President Obama & also John Stewart. The latter held a rally where 200,000 plus attended uniting community (always a good move in an impersonal IT age), allowing people to scream and vent frustration (healthy for the lungs and emotional cathartic purposes) and get their picture taken at a ‘historic moment’ (an essential in a media age, & good for phone companies). I kid.
John’s closing in his own words in the clip above, sums it all up. He describes “a reflected Image of “US” through a fun house skewing mirror of the carnivalesque-producing media. He says it is a distorted. True, as it’s ratings driven Media/ Sales propelled based on sensationalism. Stuart being one of the best at the game, which is why he holds the microphone in this clip. 30-40 somethings of the U.S currently love Stuart’s news the best. What a guy!
In summation: Why when we go to war (a polarizing matter) and all politicians love raising debate through intersecting two totally opposing views–to give a feeling of ‘change’, ‘progress’, ‘leadership’–as it gets leaders noticed, when they referee such debate –do we then act surprised when people manipulated by these political and media antics –lose a sense of peace and sanity.
It’s a bit rich. But I’m glad everyone at the rally felt happy about attending that’s awesome. Everyone who attended the Halloween rally? last night in West Hollywood, got exactly the same benefits from it, without political orchestration or interference or a noble man of TV Talk’s verbage either –cementing his own ratings, for further down the track of his career.
Gosh — I need another cup of coffee. That was harsh! Good to see the American people unite though. Together Everyone Achieve More– talk?
Seriously though – we live in an age, where a President must partner with a trusted person who has a platform, because us people are so easily distracted by social media, how else does a leader get their nation’s attention. So Obama-Stuart are a good combo, to give messages to the people.
On that note lets go, New Zealand–LOUDER! :)
[This image Sir Richard Taylor, Oscar Winner, at that Hobbit Rally, t'other side of world--doing what Jon Stewart was doing too, uniting hearts and community--for a future project coming up. We know what Sir Richard's is (Hobbit films in 3D)--I wonder what Stuart's is that he's been assigned. All eyes on Jon as well as Hobbits then. Rallies. Gotta love 'em. They're US.
Here's Israeli artist Ofra Haza & some good MC 80's blokes: As critics say, they don't know what Stewart's rally was about, (it was a Seinfeld episode, done live en mass--a "buncha nothing"), this song can help shed light. The captions in the video clip are what Stewart's rally could be about, defining what to turn up the volume. Things like color, diversity, tolerance, peaceful ways forward, artistic authentic expression being shared equally and cross-culturally--while still getting loud for fun. I was 16 dancing to this song with friends. It's kinda jurassic. Still a goodie though. Lol! My point is--when at the place where all these sites can cross-over freely (in equal give and take opportunities) is where love can be found operating between people. That's still what the world wants. Can a government love us? Or be love teachers? Most governments in the world probably won't. But a good one can, will and does.
The governments that do, will rule the world. Love meets in the middle. Like Middle Ground or Middle Earth where two parties meet. Starting with loving the earth, is a good start. People-care goes hand-in-hand with this thinking of earth-care. There's work to be done. Traditionally family, Church, neighborhood, community--teach these values. We must never forget that. It's the government's to fix the economy and grow it, and then when that's done, philosophy about what love is, can be - should happen after that. There are more people qualified to define what love is, than many politicians spending 60 hours a week in a system that is often worn of love. A politicians desire to have love, tolerance, acceptance is an acknowlegement of the deficit in the political system they are married to, politically and spend all the time in. It's not necessarily what the people think, with different lives outside the political system. I think love ambassadors should be that, politicians politicians. Then cross-over, when all jobs are done. We have government, wanting more love--from the people (worship almost) in a way that needs to be checked. Fix the economy, than praise of the people follows. Alright, these are my thoughts. In the meantime, pump up the volume on "big hearted films" or "big hearted community-shared art" and stuff like that. Fun!

What does a New Zealander look like?
Namaste. Kia Ora. Hello. It’s a pretty overcast day in California. One of the rare days where it is raining. As I blog to you all, from my Hollywood window, mist clouds sit on the Hollywood Hills, wafting half way down The Hills. A picture of austere beauty, cleansing away the busy build up of Cosmopolitan, Los Angeles smog.
You’ll never see that on Keeping Up With The Kardashians or Sister Wives either for that matter (a Washington DC, TV series favorite, fancy that?!), but it is so pretty and reminds me of the mists of the Urewera mountain ranges where the beautiful Maori people of the Tuhoe tribe live. They are people where Maori is their first language in New Zealand. Stunningly cultured, rich, deep, poetic people.
This rather romantic Hollywood view of Tuhoe some of New Zealand’s most noble citizens, is disrupted today when I get online, and discover that Paul Henry, the talk show host of Breakfast (this nation’s version of Good Morning America) made some interesting comments about another New Zealander who wears spectacles too.
All was going fine and dandy, until Henry had to open his swarmy gate? and ask the words, “is he even a New Zealander?” concerning Sir Anand Satyanand. Outrageous.
A post for journalists to tweet, facebook send, email, share, digg and pass on to other journalists, friends in government, politics, and leaders of community worldwide:
With all of the peace talk going on in Washington between key leaders of America and the Middle East (President Obama, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and Co), here’s more about a timely novel called Courage to Love by Robert Ellis that all serious journalists in the media could benefit from reading and commenting on.
I know on this blog, you’re very receptive to the novel’s message of love between centuries old enemies, who fall for each other as their love arose as they allowed the thorns of hatred in their fiercely socialized egos, to be fall away as the young hero and heroine transcend the socially prescribed behaviors of war, in this tale. Here’s words from the author.
“Courage to Love was written to make enemies friends. I am not naive enough to believe one love story can solve world problems – except for the fact that it solved this author’s problems with the world.
“The sleeping knowledge in this book needs to be told to each new generation to free them to make up their own minds about life.
“As I listened to the climax (more…)
“In every religion, there are those who would drape themselves in the mantle of belief and faith only to distort it’s most sacred teachings — preaching intolerance and resorting to violence.“–Hilary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of State, USA.

“Religion is not a piece of clothing that you change,” Imam Shata once said after turning away an Ecuadorean immigrant who sought to convert for her Syrian husband. “I don’t want someone coming to Islam tonight and leaving it in the morning… “Here you don’t know what will solve a problem,” he said. “It’s about looking for a key.”–Imam Shata being more ferosh than Lady Gaga selling a merch tee shirt in her concerts. Too real.
And if Imam Shata’s challenge to us is to provide a key, than Peace is my key I choose to put on the table for this challenge. Hence this post. Courage to be real, and love.

Kia ora all. In light of President Obama‘s blessing of a mosque building as a symbol of tolerance, forgiveness and love of the American people towards Islamist nations, at site Ground Zero in NYC post 9-11′s recovery and rebuilding effort of trust and hope, I decided as a Maori whose blessed with a foreign press pass in the USA, to honor the President’s wisdom, on a rather controversial (needlessly matter).
I say this in the light of the simple fact, that we are our own worst enemies ourselves, in most cases, more often than not, it is never ‘the other’ (a fabrication of what we deny ourselves in the blindness of delusions of fame) who we’ve never talked to, said hello to, invited for dinner at our tables in vintage Sidney Poitier styles, or even know how to say hello to, in their own language–that surprisingly isn’t our own. That’s why people who speak Arabic, even many who are of Muslim faith are exciting, because they offer a different perspective–as the other children of Abraham too.
The LA Times is reporting that while the Obama family are vacationing in Florida, that families of the 9/11 victims are very upsetting that the President has endorsed a mosque at site Ground Zero. Reports the L.A Times:
“The political lines are now drawn, as President Obama obviously intended Friday when, unsolicited, he used the occasion of the Muslim Ramadan holiday and a White House dinner to insert himself into the emotional New York City mosque controversy.
The Democrat’s speech endorsed the idea of a mosque and social center in Lower Manhattan near the ground zero of 9/11, drawing it as an issue of religious freedom, beyond sensitivity to the deadly occasion’s impact on the nation or families involved.
As usual, we posted the White House text of Obama’s Ramadan Iftar dinner remarks in full right here.
House Republican Leader John Boehner. The Ohio representative’s brief full statement on the president’s stance is below:
The decision to build this mosque so close to Ground Zero is deeply troubling, as is the president’s decision to endorse it. The American people certainly don’t support it.
The fact that someone has the right to do something doesn’t necessarily make it the right thing to do. That is the essence of tolerance, peace and understanding. This is not an issue of law, whether religious freedom or local zoning. This is a basic issue of respect for a tragic moment in our history.
Additionally, 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America issued a strong statement also.”
My view is that if it takes a “gazillion dollars” to go to war against ‘Arab nations’ as the ‘enemy’ for America and 37 allied nations who support America in this effort (New Zealand being one of them), then wouldn’t it by a wise economic move, to drop $3 million on a building (that resembles the ‘form’ of a mosque) at Ground Zero, to cut war’s hatred in half, thus saving lives and money?
If America is seen to be making an effort, in practicing the appearance of tolerance as a point of difference to operating outside of hate-fueled war isn’t that an example of strength in already having won the battle? Yes!
Lives are saved and money is saved. So what’s wrong with that? In my book, that’s called wise leadership.
For an interesting book that presents both sides of a Judaic Christian view as well as that of a Muslim view, regarding life in the Middle East, go here to read info about the novel, Courage to Love by the author Robert Ellis. That should help take the fury a little out of the whole mosque at Ground Zero debate. We must always remember, that a building is always just that, a building. It’s people that are spiritual who possess faith and a capacity to love others and God that are truly capable of practicing love and forgiveness. A building (like a mosque or a synagogue made of brick and mortar, cannot). We as people have to. Let’s not get that confused with a building’s form today. But try and see through all that ‘stuff’ and live lives a bit deeper based on spirit, not appearances alone.

Alright, racism abounds today concerning Jews and Mel Gibson‘s leaked rant tapes. In particular Eli Roth furthers a war that doesn’t even exist. I have just finished watching TMZ, that was kind of me. On TMZ, Harvey had Eli Roth actor of Inglourious Basterds turn up, fresh from the gym, still in gym clothes, promising he’d bash Mel Gibson‘s head in with a baseball bat, for racist comments towards Jews.
In fact, Eli says that Hollywood should start a Melocaust and bash Gibson’s head in. Let’s analyze this situation like mature, grown adults then.
1. Having never listened to Mel’s racist rant tapes (I’m too busy for fame hungry, gold digging, bored lovers who think its fun to leak tapes of their baby daddies, behaving badly–”games”, like Oksana Grigorieva demonstrates. However, medieval Hitchcock-esque mysogyny, deserves a woman’s slap, always!), personally though; Eli should have done the same thing and not listened to these tapes either.
2. Mel’s racist views, are inexcusable. Period. He needs counseling. Not to be stoned, by people thinking it smart to throw exactly the same rocks Mel did on those alleged tapes.
3. The holocaust did happen. If Mel Gibson denies that it did, it’s nobody’s issue, except Mel and his new counsellor he needs to get.
4. If the holocaust sickens Jews, Jewish supporters and humanitarians, like it sickens me; then that fact should stand alone, as a record, a witness and a benchmark for us all to act, on behalf of all human rights cases; past, present and future. Parts of Africa are the new genocidal holocaustic sites of the world, Palestine too–not Mulhollland Drive, Mel’s address, yet what are we doing for nations or conflicted peoples like this? Little. As a global citizen, because of the attention we the world have given the holocaust and its precious survivors and their descendants, I look to Jews to do something first for anyone afflicted or politically oppressed in the world, as this is what the holocaust taught us. Or should have, in terms of where human rights leadership from Jewish leaders, should be headed.
5. To demean the holocaust, by taking from it, and creating a word called “Melocaust” in order to vent hatred on one man, demeans all holocaust survivors and their descendants, with that word choice or creation. All because one celebrity man erred with his tongue, does not give anyone a right to think they are a hero by wanting to violently beat this mentally sick man up.
6. If Eli Roth wants press, TMZ too, they should be smarter, and use their brains and try and extend an invitation to include Mel Gibson, on humanitarian strategies that create change for the good and that are actually news worthy and non racist. This would be a noble act of leadership and a win-win for love, acceptance and tolerance in the world.
7. Hatred should never be excused, whether that be a Melocaust word or the Holocaust word. Both, are words created to describe hate. When love is the mature way forward, across any difficulty of racial blindness.
8. Two wrongs: like the Holocaust or Eli’s “Melocaust” sensationalism over a fallen man’s racist words–do not make a matter right. Valid. Justified. Or, attention worthy. When will men grow up in this town and not be addicted to a war of words, in a lust for fame? Honestly.
9. If to frame yourself as a “humanitarian defender” of Jews, Human rights, and nonracist causes, means doing nothing for Human Rights cases existing in the world outside of Israel or Jewish communities–but becoming a ‘hero’ of the cause, by presenting your mug on TV, when another man falls or errs–what kind of Los Angeles men are we? Grow up. This behavior is that of fragile ego standing vultures, not wise American Eagles! There’s a better way. Love and tolerance is needed, to restore people blinded by hate and racism, but violence, a need to become a ‘hero’ is never an intelligent answer in solving such cases, and moving forward intelligently.
These are my thoughts for TMZ’s Harvey and Eli Roth to consider in an effort towards Hollywood growing up in love, outside of the shallow terrain of a ‘popular’ yet ignorant sound bite for Television. The Jews I know, are smart, and are working towards the peace of Jews and Arab people too, as well as people who are temporarily deluded that they hate Jews, or Arabs, or any other race too. That’s the America, I want to be a part of.

If you haven’t read Courage To Love yet by author Robert Ellis yet, you should.
It’s a great love story between two young people of differing backgrounds
for our modern times.
Danica Patrick reveals that beneath her racing car driver’s jump suit, is a hot bikini body too on the cover of Shape Magazine. Here in Hollywood here’s 10 hot entertainment and celebrity news posts right now:
With a black President whose been extending the branch of friendship to America, hate crimes are alarming on the rise in America.
We have the GOP hating the democrats (see Jon Voight’s video). They are also stirring up the hate against Barack Obama and his leadership. Then we have disgruntled Nazi artists, like that loser, James W Von Brunn who undertook a shooting at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC today.
What’s need is a greater sense of Courage To Love. If hate crimes upset you, then read this book by author Robert Ellis. It’s a timely text about love overcoming difference in the modern world in which we all live. Love is the answer for America to move forward. You know it! Cover artwork is by Salvador Dali.
The future of the world depends on our ability to walk in love more so than hate.
PerezHilton.Com’s Mario Lavandeira and Miss California’s Carrie Prejean’s very public spat recently, demonstrates a need for a greater understanding to love that exists in America and the world. I recommend this book, Courage To Love by author Robert Ellis, for the duo to read. It’s a beautiful love story about forbidden love, where tolerance is the only way forward for two people in the new world they both hope for.
The cover artwork of Courage To Love is by legendary surrealist artist, Salvador Dali, who Twilight and New Moon’s Robert Pattinson plays in the film about Dali’s life, Little Ashes. It’s a beautiful love story that both Prejean and Lavandeira would fare well to both enjoy and read. Peace ya’ll from here in Hollywood today.
