UN security council must act to uphold the ceasefire in Syria

Riz Ahmed, Sacha Baron Cohen, Isla Fisher, Sofie Gråbøl, Annie Lennox, Michael Palin, Andy Serkis, Imelda Staunton, Emma Thompson, Joe Wright call on the UN to take action

We, like many people around the world, have been horrified by the tragedy of Ghouta unfolding before our eyes (Report, 1 March): children suffocating from chlorine gas, doctors collapsing in tears on the bloody floor of makeshift hospitals, and dazed civilians emerging from the dust clouds of endless air strikes. We have become all too familiar with such scenes in Syria, but now is the moment we must come together and say, “Enough”.

Last Saturday the security council passed a resolution for a 30-day ceasefire that would stop the bombs and allow humanitarian access. The ceasefire has barely led to a lull in the fighting. Meanwhile, diplomats in faraway capitals quibble over the timing and language of the ceasefire.

So today we say in plain terms for all humanity: the members of the security council can and must uphold the ceasefire. We cannot consign yet another promise to Syrian civilians to the rubbish bin of history nor can we accept any watered-down version of the agreement. We must act now to save lives.

Among the horrors of Ghouta, we are seeing tremendous acts of bravery: rescue workers driving towards bombs, women cooking for their entire community and doctors working around the clock with barely enough supplies. We are asking the leaders of our countries to stand with these brave Syrians and do everything in their power to uphold the ceasefire and stop the killing. When our children ask us what we did for Ghouta, let us be able to say, “Everything”.

Riz Ahmed, Sacha Baron Cohen, Isla Fisher, Sofie Gråbøl, Annie Lennox, Michael Palin, Andy Serkis, Imelda Staunton, Emma Thompson, Joe Wright.

Netflix’s ‘Fauda’ Co-Creator, Star Teases Season 2: ‘It’s Going to Have a Lot of Action’

Isla Fisher, Ayelet Zurer (“Munich,” “Shtisel”) and Lior Raz, co-creator and star of Netflix breakout hit “Fauda,” were among those on hand Thursday night (May 18th) at a fundraising soiree held at a private residence in Los Angeles to benefit the Cord, an Israel-based organization founded in 1999 by Igal and Dana Goldstein that serves troubled and homeless youth. Guests, which also included Israeli actress Moran Atias (“24,” “Tyrant”) and Consul General of Israel in Los Angeles, Sam Grundwerg, partied to live music and dined on kosher Mediterranean cuisine.

“The work that the Cord does is so important not only because of the immediate help that it provides troubled youth, but because it also provides much needed life skills so that these kids can help themselves,” said Grundwerg. “The Cord provides hope.”

Thanks @islafisher for a great eve and for supporting this amazing organization! ? #thecord #hollywood #islafisher

Event host Raz, who based “Fauda” on his own his experiences as an undercover operative in the Israel Defense Forces, offered up a free plane ticket to Israel and a walk-on part in Season 2 of the series, which begins shooting next month. In exchange for a $5,000 donation to the org, an offer snapped up for an inflated $7,000 by one enthusiastic attendee.

Raz also opened up about the initial struggle to get “Fauda” sold, and his continued surprise at the series’ commercial and critical success.

Today I’ve been able to add a full set of scans from Isla’s new Elle Australia magazine spread. She looks beautiful in the photos, and I love the natural, laid-back look of the shoot. In the relatively short interview, Isla talks about her life and career, including the benefits and pitfalls of not having gone to University, her time on Home & Away, motherhood and working, women in film, Instagram, and very briefly Keeping Up With The Joneses and Marge In Charge.

Please be sure to give us a link back if you re-post these scans elsewhere!

“I feel like I’ve been fortunate because I feel that the things I’ve achieved in my life have surpassed what I’d hoped to achieve. When I thought about myself living in a house in the Hollywood hills I’d always imagined myself to be cleaning it. For me, it’s about reframing the new me and and not comparing it to the old me.”

Isla Fisher discusses her and Sacha Baron Cohen’s charity donation: ‘I wanted it to be private’

Isla Fisher has addressed the large charity donation she and husband Sacha Baron Cohen made last year.

The couple gave over £670,000 to charity over Christmas last year.

They donated £336,000 to The Sunday Times Christmas appeal to help children in Syria in the wake of a threatened measles outbreak there. They also gave the same amount to International Rescue Committee, run by David Miliband in New York.

Now Aussie actress Fisher has spoken about the generous donations, saying that although she would have preferred it kept out of the headlines, she is glad that the publicity has highlighted issues she cares deeply about.

She told Metro.co.uk: ‘I think that it’s been very hard watching the international community really do nothing about the Syria situation for a long time, so I was actually…when you make a donation you do want it to be private, but I think it’s important that we highlight the issues that are going on for children in Syria because it’s very serious.’

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher donate to help Syrian children

Today Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have made a $1 million donation split equally between Save the Children and the International Rescue Committee to support victims of the conflict in Syria.

500,000 Dollars will be used to fund a programme vaccinating more than 250,000 children against a potential measles outbreak in Northern Syria. The other half of the donation will be used to help fund the work to support families, with a special concern for women and children, both inside Syria and in neighbouring countries who are suffering as a result of the ongoing conflict. The money will go towards education, health care, shelter and sanitation.

There are currently four million refugees in neighbouring states and over seven million displaced inside Syria. It has been estimated that around 12,000 children have been killed in the conflict and the real number may be much higher. Some sources have indicated that thousands of children have been killed by barrel bombs alone.

Justin Forsyth, Save the Children CEO, said: “The Syrian conflict is now approaching its fifth year and children are the first victims. There is no safe place left in Syria, with shelling and violence omnipresent. Food and medicines have become scarce and basic necessities unaffordable. Syria’s health system has collapsed and deadly childhood diseases – like measles – which had previously been all but eradicated have now returned, threatening the lives of hundreds of thousands of children. By allowing us to make their generous donation to Syrian children public, Sacha and Isla are helping highlight the tragedy of the issue today. These are desperate times for Syrian families facing bombs, bullets and torture in Syria. The couple’s donation will save many thousands of lives and protect some of the most vulnerable children.”

David Miliband, president and CEO of the international rescue committee (IRC) said: “Now is the time for all of us to double down on commitments to civilians caught up in the Syria conflict. These people are the victims of terror. As hope for the end of conflict recedes, it is all the more important to meet the most basic human needs. Sacha and Isla’s donation is a great expression of humanity, and a challenge to do more for the most vulnerable. I hope it is an example to many others seeking practical ways of making a difference during the Christmas and New Year season.”

Syria’s children urgently need your help. Please donate to Save the Children now via phone: 0800 8148 148 or online at www.savethechildren.org.uk/syria. Please donate to the International Rescue Committee at www.rescue-UK.org or rescue.org.

Actors And Athletes In Save The Children’s New Film Hit The Ground Running

Save the Children today launched a star-studded film featuring actress Isla Fisher, Disney actor Cameron Boyce, Bollywood megastar Kunal Kapoor and Kenyan former world record marathon holder Patrick Makau, to promote its World Marathon Challenge for kids.

The World Marathon Challenge, a global relay race in which teams of kids come together to complete a full marathon, is taking place globally throughout the month of October, and involves more than 50,000 children in 67 countries. The relay race aims to raise awareness and funds for programs focused on child survival and well-being.



The short film has each of the stars running a leg of the race in different corners of the world. The film kicks off in Kenya with athlete Patrick Makau deftly gliding through the rural countryside. It then cuts to Bollywood’s Kunal Kapoor as he charges past ruins on the outskirts of Mumbai, before passing the baton to the safe hands of Isla Fisher in the United States. Cameron Boyce (“Grown Ups,” “Grown Ups 2”) then takes center stage in Los Angeles, with baton-twirling breakdance moves his fans will love.
