LOS ANGELES-The famous Hollywood star, a double Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks unexpectedly sided with the Serbs and in the show cable station “E” he said that that Kosovo has always been Serbia and will be again one day!
Talking about the beginning of the recent shooting of a Hollywood spectacle about History of the State of Israel, produced by Steven Spielberg where he will play a major role. He compared golgotha and the Jews with suffering of Kosovo Serbs.
During the World War II and Holocaust, Jews suffered a lot, not to mention what had happened to them hundreds of years earlier. In spite of all, they never lost faith and returned back to their country. They have an entire millennium where they greeted each other saying (see you) “Next year in Jerusalem.” Similar case we have today in Kosovo. It was inhabited by Serbs, who built monasteries and had their own kings and then they were expelled by Albanians. At the end of the 20th century there were NATO bombs falling on Serbs, but they still do not want to admit that Kosovo is an independent state and proudly say that “Kosovo is Serbia”, like the Jews who once eventually returned to their country, so maybe that is the case with the Serbs, said Hanks.
Tom Hanks is known in Hollywood for his interest in historical themes, so he had worked together with Spielberg in the historical documentary film about World War II and is considered one of the best ever educated Hollywood actors.
