Once I was a fan of Bryan Adams, and a moment later I hated him. I have never particularly liked Cristiano Ronaldo, but after this I declare myself a fan. Am I shallow? One dimensional? When it comes to Israel, yes. Work against Israel and I hate you. Work with Israel and I’m a fan. Yes it is that simple. Does one have to agree with everything Israel does or agree with everything its leaders say? Of course not. But there is a statement I have made that my friends who are minorities always agree with. No matter what someone says, you can tell who is prejudice against you and who isn’t. And simply put, when one of the most high-profile athletes in the planet is proud of a project he is working on in Israel, he is definitely more of a friend than anything else. Check out his commercial here.
For this I thank Cristiano Ronaldo. It is easy for all of us, myself included to go after the haters, but it is my belief the good guys need to be recognized at least as much, and today I learned that Ronaldo is one of the good guys. With lawyers and handlers all over today’s celebrities, he had to know there would be people attacking him for this, and not only did he do it anyway, he bragged about it on Twitter, saying:
“There are rumors that I’m going to be a star in Israel. Not in soccer… In a HOT commercial.”
Way to go Ronaldo!
