A Special Thank You from Scarlett Johansson

 We love Scarlett Johansson and she loves us, too.

As many of you know, Scarlett Johansson was recently singled out by anti-Israel boycott activists for her support of the Israeli company SodaStream.

CCFP had been in touch with Scarlett's representatives since the controversy began.  We knew how many of you out there wanted to congratulate and thank her directly for her courageous and principled stand and we facilitated an opportunity to do so by receiving the permission of her publicist to provide you with his email and posting it on our Facebook page.

Thousands and thousands of you rose to the occasion and CCFP cannot express our thanks deeply enough. And we're not the only ones. We have been given a note from Mr. Marcel Pariseau, Scarlett Johansson's publicist, thanking her fans for their support. This note of appreciation is from Scarlett to all of you:

 "Scarlett would like to extend her most sincere thanks to the many thousands of people who have supported her these past weeks. Your emails, comments, and tweets have been truly overwhelming and inspiring. It has been wonderful to receive messages from people all over the world who firmly believe that peace is possible.

And a big thank you to Creative Community For Peace for building a bridge between Scarlett and her fans."

Marcel Pariseau


The Creative community for Peace is doing wonderful outreach to promote music and the arts as a bridge to understanding and peace. There is much left to be done and CCFP can use your help. Like them on Facebook   and Sign their Anti-Boycott Petition  

Tell the many hundreds of international artists who perform in and visit Israel every year that you support their decision and that we must not allow Israel's detractors to politicize art.
