Actress won’t stop defending Israel

Jewish American actress Mayim Bialik said that her support for Israel has led to calls to boycott her and the popular television show she stars in, “The Big Bang Theory.”

“It hasn’t yet, that I know of, impacted my acting career, but it has impacted the way that I am seen, and that does impact my career in terms of speaking engagements and endorsements,” she said in a keynote address to the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism in Jerusalem.

Bialik said she has been the subject of anti-Semitic attacks on social media, where she has a high profile. “I’m happy to take that public bullet for the state,” she also said. (JTA)
