Sacha Baron Cohen isn’t the first to speak up against the injustice. “Homeland” star Mandy Patinkin, who plays the character of Saul Berenson even asked to focus on the actual issue of Syrian refugee’ crisis rather than creating war. In his interview with Variety, Patinkin admitted that after spending time shooting in Berlin, he can now actually connect with the turmoil of Syrian refugees.

Patinkin further added, “They’re writing what we’re all living. You’d have to be blind, deaf and dumb not to see the drama in the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East.”
