(CELEBRITIES/FUR BAN) Pamela Anderson wants Israel to pass a fur ban and went straight to the top to do it!
After honeymooning in Israel, the former Baywatch beauty and animal activist wrote a letter to the country’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, asking him to endorse a bill banning the sale of clothes made of animal fur.
The longtime anti-fur advocate hopes the once-sympathetic PM will help put an end to the needless animal suffering.
In her letter Anderson wrote:
“The way in which animals suffer and die for fur violates Jewish principles, which strictly prohibit causing animals unnecessary suffering. There’s so much violence among humans that is so difficult to stop, but passing a ban on fur is one easy way to eliminate some of the senseless violence that we inflict on animals.”
More than 40 lawmakers have endorsed the bill, promoted by the Israel-based International Anti-Fur Coalition.
Anderson, who’s also an honorary director for PETA, continued:
“By passing this piece of legislation, Israel would set an example of compassion for the rest of the world to follow.”
If passed, Israel could make history and become the world’s first fur-free country.
