Michael Douglas Speaks Out Against Anti-Israel Campus Protests in the U.S.


Hollywood star Michael Douglas has condemned what he called the “brainwashing” that has led to anti-Israel campus protests in the U.S., saying the students participating in the demonstrations are acting out of ignorance.

In his meeting with Herzog, Douglas reportedly said it was a “big shock” to see all the anti-Israel protests and encampments that have taken over elite universities in the U.S.

He suggested that the students involved underwent “brainwashing… because when you try to talk to many of them, there is no education, there’s no knowledge,” according to multiple reports.

“I know there’s two sides to every conflict and I respect that. But I hope this war can come to an end quickly and save us from hating each other for the rest of our lives,” he said in the video.

Douglas and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, recently held a Biden fundraiser, with Douglas calling the 81-year-old Biden “sharp as a tack” during a CNN interview.
