Dear Scarlett Johansson – A Letter To A Woman I Once Admired

20140129-032839.jpg

Dear Scarlett Johansson,

Do you know what it’s like, to wake up every day, and not know what it’s like to be home?

Do you know how it feels, to walk on a path, discriminated, because of the color you are, and the family you were born into?

Do you know just how hard it is, to get to where you need to, be it for work, for school, when you’re stopped at every corner?

Do you know how painful it is, to be banned from going for mass, or being too young to pray in a mosque, when things are meant to be easy, on a land so holy?

Do you know what it’s like, to fight for your rights, but end up being signed of as nothing but terrorists?

Do you know how it feels, to be short on produces, because some idiot feels threatened by olive trees?

Do you know just how hard it is, to sit on the rubbles of what was once your home, a home that you destroyed with your own hands, because it was cheaper that way?

Do you know how painful it is, to be so close but yet so far from your loved ones, simply because of the existence of a barrier, greater than the Berlin Wall?

This letter, could go on, far longer, than it already is. But there’s no need for that, is there? (But bear with me)

Because you will never know what it’s like, to stay miles away, because people say, “This land is no longer yours. Go away.”, will you?

You will not know just how it feels, to live through everyday, being treated as though you’re no better than the scum beneath the sole of your shoes.

You won’t care about how hard it is, to get to where you need to, because the money pours in, and the ease comes through.

and you will never, ever, ever know, just how painful it is, to watch the land, the place where Jesus was born, and Islam had lived, be buried upon decades of lies, in ruins, threatened to be slayed.

No.

Because to you, it is far better to support a company, that thrives on the sufferings of others, right?

It doesn’t matter how fairly the Palestinian workers are being treated, though they swear otherwise, because the factory it’s based upon, lies on a land, that once belonged to them, and those before them. People had lost their homes, in order for the factory to be built. And somehow you’re proud to stand by it? Amazing.

You say, that you are a supporter of economic cooperation and social interaction, between Israel and Palestine. Do you even understand what that means? Do you realize that the only economic cooperation, both countries have with the other, is one monopolizing everything, and the other simply slaving? Do you know that the only social interaction that exists, in the context that you speak, is that one is spewing about the rights they apparently deserve, while they trample on the rights of the other?

A Democratic Israel and Palestine? With all due respect, what sort of rock have you been living under? As firstly an ambassador of Oxfam, how are you so unaware of the true situation between the two countries? Unless your understanding of democracy has changed to become exactly as how the twisted war-mongering nations see it, you ought to realize that there’s nothing democratic about it, at all.

How can SodaStream possibly be a company that is committed to building a bridge to peace between Israel and Palestine, when even it’s mere existence, go against every possible definition of peace itself?

You’re a brilliant actress, an amazing woman, if your work with Oxfam is anything to go by, but this, this support you have for a company that is produced through the blood of Palestinians, is simply absolutely disgusting. Don’t allow for dollar signs, that I’m sure you already see enough, and lies that are unworthy of woman so great, sway you to become a person you have never been. We had no way of stopping the first Holocaust, but it isn’t too late, to change the course of this one. You hold more power that you could ever believe.

I still have faith in you.

Please.

Don’t continue with this incorrigible mistake.

Sincerely,

Your No-Longer-A-Fan-In-The-Making.

  1. You will never publish this but …

    Ever think about why Israel built a wall and has segregated roads? Maybe if the Palestinians didn’t try to kill them, they would get along

      1. Scarjo your comment has no substance, its bland and very immature also extremely irritating simply because it shows your lack education and understanding about the whole issue!

    2. Oh would you look at that! I actually did 🙂

      Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read and comment.

      Though, it seems to me, that not one word had managed to go through you.

      Sweetheart, let’s just put it this way. If I were to go to wherever it is that you are, bringing with me thousands of people, kicking you and your neighbors out of your homes, how do you reckon you’d be reacting? Will you be welcoming us all with open arms, and brilliant smiles, like you so obviously expect of the Palestinians? Or will you be doing all that you can to be rid of us, and have us ‘destroyed’? Don’t only speak on the basis of what you’ve been told, or the lies you’ve been fed. Put yourself in their position, and you come tell me straight, that you won’t be reacting far worse than just wanting to “kill them”.

      Arab Jews and Palestinians had once lived in peace together, before Zionism came into existence. Until you come to know of these facts, as you can already see and tell, ignorance isn’t welcomed.
