Selena Gomez ‘Pray for Gaza’ Post Draws Praise
Gulf News ^ | July 19, 2014 | Layelle Saad

Pro-Israeli fans have attacked celebrities for posts expressing solidarity with Palestinians

Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity to express solidarity with Palestinians suffering under Israel’s brutal assault of Palestinians in Gaza

The young pop star posted a message on Instagram on Friday urging her followers to ‘pray for those families and babies today’.

While many of her fans praised her post, the singer was attacked by pro-Israeli fans and unfollowed by many.

On Tuesday, Barbados-born pop star Rihanna posted #FreePalestine on her Twitter feed, but deleted it eight minutes later after she received a barrage of replies criticising her.

Instead she posted a picture of a Palestinian and Israeli boy hugging with the caption, “Let’s pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?”

Pro-Israeli fans have viciously attacked celebrities that post messages in solidarity with Palestine.

Just last week the British band Coldplay received 12,000 comments within a day, after posting a link on their Facebook page for a music video by OneWorld entitled “Freedom for Palestine”.

Many of them contained promises to boycott the band, but other comments were praising the band for its stance.

Is there any particular reason this non-entity’s opinion matters?

Perhaps Selena Gomez needs to have her house attacked with rocket fire every 5 seconds..she has 24 hour security protection..she sure talks a lot of nonsense for someone who is constantly protected

She's out of rehab this week, so yes her opinion matters.

In specific, it doesn’t matter, but it is demonstrates something that is important. Namely, that media propaganda about Israel is starting to make inroads.

hehe

She was a regular on the ‘Barney’ (purple dinosaur) show and then the lead on a Disney Channel show. She was a Jonas brothers squeeze too.

Oh, the thing learned from grandchildren!

Is Gomez one of those “unaccompanied” illegal alien invaders? If so, send her home. We don’t need Jew haters here.

I forgot to mention that she is a proud Christian and tweets Bible verses.

Who do the celebrities want prayed to anyway? Also one person's peace is another person's prison so what kind of “peace” are they talking about?

Lol, Twitter=job security for publicists.

When she tweets messages in support of Gaza it doesn’t make her appear very bright. Perhaps she needs to actually visit Israel to understand why we are trying to save it from destruction

reading this sh1t you’d think israel was the largest most massive country in the middle east and none of the poor muslijihadis have a chance against it.

notice how all this crap has taken iran’s nuke program out of the spotlight.

“Gulf news” is hardly a reliable source.

Only the anti-semites are praising Gomez’s tweet.

All the celebrities who support Hamas in the latest conflict need to take the next step. They need to volunteer their mansion as a staging area for Hamas to launch rockets from....
