Early this summer, The Washington Times published an open letter from actor and political activist Jon Voight to President Barack Obama. In no uncertain terms, Voight criticized the administration’s posture toward Israel. Along with the admiration of conservatives, this public gesture earned Voight a top spot among NRB’s recent list of conservative men in Hollywood.

Now, Voight has turned his ire against Time magazine, calling the publication anti-Semitic for recent cover stories critical of the United States and Israel.

“This is anti-Semitism,” Voight said of the Sep. 13 edition, which features a Star of David and the cover line, “Why Israel Doesn’t Care About Peace.”

Voight said, “Who are the anti-Semites who are running Time Magazine?”

The politically active actor, who supports the Tea Party and conservative candidates, then attacked Time’s August 30 cover that asks: “Is America Islamophobic?”

“They’re calling America Islamophobic. Well, this is exactly the way that we create wars between nations,” Voight said.

Voight’s criticism of Time is warranted. The cover stories to which he refers are replete with demagoguery disguised as tolerant human interest. In paragraph after paragraph, writers Karl Vick and Bobby Ghosh paint opposition to and criticism of Islam as senseless bigotry and presume moral equivalence between the mandates of all faiths. They do so conveniently absent an examination of Islam, assuming the faith’s nature and paradigm to be analogous to any other, and floating the requisite “all religions can be taken out of context” nonsense.
