Voight calls Time magazine anti-Semitic


Actor Jon Voight called Time magazine’s Sept. 13 cover story anti-Semitic.

Voight, in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Huckabee,” slammed the story titled “Why Israel Doesn’t Care About Peace.”

“This is anti-Semitism. Who are these anti-Semites who are running Time magazine?” he asked host Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate. “If Israel falls, we all fall.”

“What are we going to do? Should we boycott Time magazine? Maybe so, because they shouldn’t have the right to create wars,” he said to applause from the live audience.

Voight, who is not Jewish, has long been an advocate for Israel. He also called the recent remarks by Fidel Castro in an interview in The Atlantic, in which the Cuban leader condemned Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Holocaust denial, “a ray of hope.”
