Skip to comments.Lady Gaga’s Israel Message Sparks Arab Reactions
Posted on 09/02/2014 10:08:24 AM PDT by nickcarraway
A video released by Lady Gaga in which she greets her Israel fans with a Shalom has provoked mixed responses from Arab fans and social medial users.
"Shalom, Israel," the pop superstar said in the brief greeting. "I'm so excited to perform my new tour in Tel Aviv," she added in reference to her concert scheduled for Sept. 13
THe short video message has gone viral online, with many Arab users labeling her as disgusting and devilish and having no sensitivities amid the recent Israeli offensive on Gaza which resulted in the deaths of more than 2,000 Palestinians and more than 65 Israelis.
She is disgusting and I never liked her because her values are nonexistent. Now she has validated everything I have ever thought of it, one Facebook user wrote.
Another seemingly non-Arab user wrote: The lack of sensitivity is, in my opinion, the worst of the sins! But other users expressed anger at the negative reactions to Gagas message.
I'm no fan of hers, and I doubt her intentions are humanitarian, but the reactions here seem disproportionate to what she said in the video. If you think that a performer shouldn't visit or perform in any country which is occupying another country/land and causing unnecessary suffering for those who are occupied, then let's hope you were equally disgusted by any non-American artist performing in the United States between 2003 and 2011 for the exact same reasons, one user wrote.
Gagas announcement came as a number of artists canceled or postponed their shows because of the recent conflict, which ended last week in accordance with a ceasefire agreement.
Among the artists who canceled were Neil Young, America, the Backstreet Boys and Lana Del Rey.
Before playing in Israel, Gagas ArtRave: The Artpop Ball Tour will come to Dubai on Sept. 10, in wat will be her first concert in the Arab world.
The tour is in support of her fourth studio album Artpop.
I knew I liked her for some reason...
I am sure the sharia lovers have their panty’s in a wad over her.
How dare she greet her audience in their own language? This is an outrage! /s
Looks like Gaga needs to patch up her Islamic fan base by doing a series of shows in Baghdad, Tehran and Islamabad.
Lady Gaga don’t give rat a*** what people think
Actually this same gal who wore “that meat dress” remember that tick off PETA
Just make sure her meat dress is halal.
If the bearded savages hate her, she must be doing something right.
Apologize...Will she or won’t she, what say ya’ll?
I’m thinking this last round of Hamas terrorism against Israel didn’t exactly pay off like they expected.
They have been almost universally trashed for their actions.
Even Europe had to break ranks to criticize.
The White House had to limit the “Proporsional Response” comments to no more than 100 vs the usual 1,750.
Now Lady Gaga...
What’s an aspiring terrorist organization to do? Their leaders are being picked off one by one in the Gaza, and ISIS/ISIL gets all the headlines.
Why it’s almost enough to make a terrorist lay down his suicide belt and give his/her kids a hug.
I don’t think so. I noted another group (as least I believe it was) wouldn’t cancel their Israel performance either.
I love it when people tell the members of the Left or the PC groups around the world to pound sand.
Neil Young have any idea he appears pro muzzie now?
Neil, you supporting throat slashers?
Islam Delenda Est
There would have been no outcry at all had the disgusting little tramp shouted “Death to Israel!”
Southern Man don’t need him around anyhow...................
Hopefully Westerners are getting the message that being anti-Israel won’t make the Islamists luv them.
...Arab users labeling her as disgusting and devilish....
Well, for once, the muzzies and I agree on something. She is a disgusting skank. Of course, my reasons for despising the trollop are just because of her filthy on-stage behavior.
Lady Gaga just went up a lot in my esteem.
Well, she’s gone from 0 to 1 out of 100 on my give a damn meter scale...
Doesn’t “Shalom” mean peace?
Why would that offend Arabs?
She is still nothing more than a vile piece of rotting carcass to me
In Israel, one answers the telephone with “Shalom”. Lady Gaga was merely saying, “Hello, Israel”.
But for the instantly enraged & chronically offended muzzies, that’s worth a fatwa right there.
IIRC, Neil young canceled due to an Israeli security/police request.
Me too. So she’s nice to Israel, her country of heritage. Big deal. A whore of Babylon is more fitting for her quit honestly.
Same with Joan Rivers and other Hollyweird lefties who say they support Israel and then support all the anti-Israel lefties like Obama.
What Israeli offensive? They were defending themselves...again.
