FILE - In this Oct. 3, 2013 file photo, Spanish actress Penelope Cruz poses for photographers as she arrives for the UK Premiere of "The Counselor," in London. Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean at the pro-Israel Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, believes comments like those issued by 100 Spanish citizens, including Cruz and her husband, the director Pedro Almodovar, and Javier Bardem, in a letter accusing Israel of genocide are irresponsible. "My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace in both Israel and Gaza," Cruz stated. (Photo by Jon Furniss/Invision/AP, file) less
