Robert De Niro and Nobu in Israel..uh Huh

De Niro investing in Israel. Booyah!
New Japanese-style hotel, restaurant by Hollywood actor, Robert De Niro,- partners to open within two years.

LONDON – In a lavish event held last Thursday at the Nobu sushi restaurant in London, the Nobu Group partners announced the establishment of a new hotel in Herzliya for an investment of NIS 600 million (approximately $178 million.)
De Niro in Herzliya

Both partner Robert De Niro and his son Raphael..Also joining the event were Paris Hilton and her beau.

The hotel will open its gates within two years and will feature 225 rooms. According to Sales Director, Sigal Ben-Moshe, all rooms will be available for purchase from $600,000 for a studio to $1.7 million for a penthouse.

Nobu, is a world reknown chef, who has established restaurants in hotels in Greece, Hong Kong and the Gramercy Park Hotel. He has two New York City restaurants: on West 57th Street and on Hudson Street.

Analyze That! heh

A $178 million Japanese style hotel in Herzeliya with the “Raging Bull’s” financial backing? Heck yea.

Apparently, Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro has a new act in town. Well, not this town.
The restaurant in the hotel is planning to open in Herzliya, right on the Mediterranean– Israel’s own “Riviera.”

Inside Nobu, large foam mats shaped like Japanese slippers adorn toffee-colored walls, absorbing the bustle of chefs and waiters.
The lowdown on Nobu
Patrons in satin tops, khakis and deep blue business suits mingle in the compact space near a ring of tables, most reserved a month in advance.

Meals at Nobu begin with a soft-spoken waiter asking your likes and dislikes, guiding you through an extensive menu that doesn’t list appetizers and entrees because servers here recommend ordering omakase, a tasting menu that costs either $100 or $125, or more if arranged with the chef. The meal features six to seven smaller plates designed around the diner’s preferences

I’m on board. Anyone hungry?

Imagine any Hollywood actor, who are notably usually to the left of good ole Joe Stalin -taking a stand for Israel or against Muzlim terrorism.

Other “stars” who are pro Israel and thus: Pro Liberty:

NICOLE Kidman has made a public stand against terrorism.
Kidman (and others in Hollywood) Condemns Hamas, Hezbollah

The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today’s Los Angeles Times newspaper.

It specifically targets “terrorist organisations” such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.

“We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hezbollah and Hamas,” the ad reads.

“If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.
“We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs.”

A who’s who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.

The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.

Mel Gibson was unavailable for comment. Ha.

    There is no country called ‘Palestine’… doesn’t exist. Of course, this little technical glitch could almost be ignored given that the Pretty People actually referred to “terrorist organizations” rather than the usual “militants” or “freedom fighters”.

    Obama Throws His Church Under Bus!

    So Obama quits his Church today.. Big deal, what the hell took him so long? Did he have to wait until the whole world was talking and writing about it? It’s just a bit to late Bambi, in fact it’s twenty years too late, you’re already indoctrinated into the fueling, inflammatory, hatred that you’ve listened to for that many years, and obviously supported, as you’ve mention; “Like I can’t disown my white grandmother. You already told us that you can’t disown your minister, Rev. Wright.” But, you leave this very church due to a visiting pastor’s derogatory remarks, does this truly hold water or make sense to anyone? It’s like his wife Michelle stating; “I am now proud to be an American.” What were you before this time? You were never proud of America before? Only now that your Husband has become the FIRST Black person to be the front runner to become the leader of the FREE world? Your weren’t proud of America when Pres. Reagan made that speech “Mr. Gorbachev Tear down that wall”?
    Or when our troops invaded the Nazis concentration camps and freed ten’s of 1,000′s of Jewish prisoners?
    Didn’t anything we ever do make you proud, you selfish little b–ch!
    Obama tells Oprah, I want to bring the troops into Africa, she endorses him, as her school in Africa will ultimately get military protection. This is where Obama’s father lives.
    Don’t want to live in a militant state, I enjoy my liberties and freedom and don’t wish to be dictated to, or subservient to anyone, nor to be discriminated against, or see my children or grandchildren or their children tortured, hated, or horrifically punished due to ignorant followers of hatred.
    Who else do you have to push under the bus to get yourself in the limelight? And how long will it be until you throw America under the bus, and step on the gas?
    Sorry folks but this guy scares me. his self-centered wife scares me.
    Our Nation and the PC Liberals in it must be getting pretty damn desperate when someone like Obama can weasel his way into the Presidential race with no real agenda except his so called CHANGE bull s-it. Change to what? Anyone cane say they want Change, sure who don’t. There is always room for change. It’s the radical change that I’m afraid of. The Change to bring out people like we’ve seen in his Rat’s nest of a Church into the daylight of US policies that I’m afraid of.
    I don’t trust him and encourage everybody not to Would I rather see the lying Clinton’s back in power? Wow, that’s a really tough choice for an American to have to make.
    I hate Hillary Clinton and I could never, ever tolerate her or her Husband and her little bi—h of a Daughter either.
    So even though I hate to repeat myself so much I’ll take John McCain, with or without his faults.. I can tell you one thing. No country on this earth will mess with us as long as John McCain is in office. And that’s pretty much it.
