Iconic Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin Takes a Bold Stand, Cutting Ties with Talent Agent Over Controversial Israel Remarks

Aaron Sorkin, the legendary screenwriter, and Oscar-winning actor, quit his talent agency after Maha Dakhil accused Israel of genocide for its response to the Hamas terrorist attack that killed 1,400 people including some Americans. I’m glad to see Hollywood rejecting the vicious anti-Semitism sweeping the progressive movement.

You’ve probably seen headlines about people supporting the Palestinian terror group. I’m sure you’ve wondered why they’re doing so. I believe I know the answer.

Don’t misunderstand me, I am not saying that there isn’t a political element to this whole mess. But, the Islamic religion, its prophets, and its scripture are soaked in the blood and ashes of those they call “infidels.” It is taboo to talk about violence in the Islamic religion, but it is true.

The Palestinians, and other Islamists, believe that Allah commands them to destroy Jews. They also believe this is an act to praise and worship their god.

Back to Sorkin.

A report by Breitbart states that the screenwriter who created the NBC smash-hit “The West Wing”, and wrote the script for “The Social Network,” will be returning to WME after six years at CAA.

“Maha’s not an antisemite; she’s simply wrong,” Sorkin said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. The first media outlet to report the news was The Hollywood Reporter. “She’s a great agent, and I’m proud of the work that we did together for the past six years.”

Dakhil’s Instagram post from earlier in the week, which stated “You are currently learning who is supporting genocide,” caused a rift between them. This post was published on an account called “Free Palestine” on the platform.

Dakhil apologized for her actions, but it was too little, too late. I agree.

She said, “I made a big mistake by reposting a post in my Instagram story that used hurtful words. I am so grateful to Jewish colleagues and friends who educated me and pointed out the implications.”

Dakhil also represents Natalie Portman (who is from Israel), Steven Spielberg, and Tom Cruise.

It is not the first time that CAA has been in trouble this month. In October, Julia Ormond sued the agency, claiming executives retaliated after she accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.
