Outspoken actor Jon Voight has taken aim at U.S. President Barack Obama again in an open letter to the Washington Post newspaper. The "Deliverance" star, who is Angelina Jolie's father, called Obama a "false prophet" in 2009 and now he's blasting America's leader for his party's foreign policies in the Middle East.

The 71-year-old Republican calls Democrat Obama, "the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies."

Voight continues, "You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone's enemy and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm's way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world. You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today."

"The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientists and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game, so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs. But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals who want Israel eradicated."

He also blames Obama for the immigration problems at home, particularly in Arizona, where politicians have marked plans to turn the state into an illegal alien-free zone. The actor writes, "You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens."

"Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics." Voight ends his rant by writing, "With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel, Jon Voight."

This is why I hate obama supporters... Every single one of you either tried to play the race card, had awful grammar/spelling, and/or just bashed Bush. It was old in 2008 and it definitely sounds like a broken record now. Do any of you have any idea what he's been doin in office/what his policies are? Or did you do like most of the lesser educated in 2008 and vote for him just because he was black (and not even of American descent!!!!) and I am 100% not racist so please don't respond with those same idiotic claims.

This guy is a complete delusional moron! What planet is he on? No wonder his own daughter "Angelina Jolie" thinks he is a nut case and doesn't have anything to do with him.

John Voight hits the nail on the head.

Looking at the previous comments, maybe we all need to worry about education in the United States. The spelling in these comments is unbelievable. Voight is simply voicing his opinion, which is something all Obama supporters have no problem doing. We have to hear that crap all of the time. Give him a break...he has a point. You will see.

Mr. Voight seems to have a good grip on what's REALLY going on and tells it like it is! He's not being judgemental, he's telling the truth. People who are dumb enough to believe Obama spins (and lies) can't handle the truth!

It bothers me that Bush and Cheney seem to skate through the biggest recession in history. I hate to see people so angry because Obama gave health care to people that needed it. Okay whats the difference. Bush messed us up ,where were these people when he fucked up the country. So you racist fucks find something else to do because black folks have computers in every home now so dont get it confused with the 50's. The president to blame is bush and cheney dont forget that, and the oil spill by the way is BP faught so get your heads together and do the research.

Since when has critism of the President un-American?? I'm sure if he were critizing Bush or any other Republican you demotards would be cheering Jon Voight on! As for Israel, Ovomit...erm Obummer.. I mean NObama has done nothing but bowed down and kissed muslim arse. When he is voted out of office in 2012 he will be remembered as the most controversial, unpopular President since Liverspot Carter~ who did nothing for America but put us further in debt, let Iran have Nukes, did nothing to secure our borders, didn't find Bin laden and strained our relationship with Israel the ONLY true democracy in the Middle East!

The Obama whitehouse works in lawlessness while punishing those who abide by the law. Obama is a renegade thoughtless arrogant non citizen born from a Jackyls ass who legitimizes criminal behavior and punishes and chastizes the innocent. The Obama agenda is dangerous and down right evil. We must save our children by covering their eyes and ears from this beastly antichrist from the bowels of Hell who speaks lies with a forked tongue like a serpent and his administration staff are his deciples and are of the synogogue of Satan and his Hellish plan. Obama appoints a lesbian racists to the Supreme Court who has NEVER presided a case on the bench to destroy justice in order to turn this country into the full blown Banana Republic Commie Red State. Obots also think big brother should hand them everything at the cost of other peoples dime and expense. They think someone else should flip the bill for them and be giving it in taxes to Dictator Obama to give to them. Obama is straight from the fires kilns of Hell and swore on the Quran on innauguration day.

Both Voight and the above replier are full of crap -- and although Voight might be a good actor, his remarks about the president are un-American and I won't be watching any of his films any more.
