Simon Cowell Under Fire for Donation to Israeli Army
Breitbart California ^ | 07/27/2014 | Christian Toto

Posted on 07/28/2014 12:42:20 PM PDT by DFG

Simon Cowell is used to heaping abuse on strangers, not taking it from them.

The former American Idol judge made a fortune by mocking the singing abilities of the Fox show's contestants. Now, Cowell is getting nasty messages from strangers, but the stakes are far higher.

Cowell gave $150,000 to the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces last year, but the donation is only now hitting the news cycle, according to YNET News.

As a result, Cowell began receiving images of dead Palestinian children on Twitter and has been accused of helping Israel invade Gaza.

One of the tweets said Cowell has "blood on your hands," while another comment included a picture of a father holding his dead baby and read: "You donated money to Israel to do this. Now imagine this was your child.

A spokesman for Cowell, who is Christian, declined to comment on the matter to YNET News.

Good for Simon. My donation was a fraction of a fraction compared to his. Next payday, I see about another.

The Islamofascist-loving, Nazi Jew Haters are on a roll. I can’t believe Adolf Hitler still has a fan club all these years after WWII.

I have a strange new respect for Simon Cowell. (Still won't watch his show, though.)

It’s so yesterday to help Israel; these days all the glitterati are bashing the Jews and cheering for, and funding, Middle Eastern terrorism.

It’s called The Obama Effect.

Always liked Simon. He was the only one who told the contestants the truth on American Idol. Very funny guy. Go Simon!

When he was on that show with Paula Abdul, he was the honest one. And in reel/real life, one is going to get criticism even nastier than Cowell’s if one is auditioning. In real/reel life they can be cruel; however, I loved Paula Abdul for not commenting on lousy performers. She had a good heart.

The Twits see one pic of dead Hamas, and Israel is the terrorist. Absolutely clueless as to the history there.

He gets another 3% from me, so that brings it down to 94% asshat.

Way to go, Simon.

Wow, that is startling news. They say he is a Christian, but I doubt he is religious at all. Hey, wait a minute, what about his baby-mama, is she Jewish?

Nevertheless, good on him and he shouldn’t let the schmucks bother him.

Political correctness in action. You must follow liberal dogma or they trash you.

Collateral damage. Unlike muzzies, Israel doesn't kill innocents intentionally.

I don’t care how much money you have, $150,000 is a lot of dough. He is someone who gets it. Way to go, Simon. If I knew before I might’ve watched more than 3 minutes of the show.

He’s being attacked by Muslims masquerading as people. He should pay no attention.
