Comedian Rob Schneider tweeted about what he called the “ugly inhuman siege of Gaza” and actress Carolina Guerra accused Israel of committing a “slow genocide.” Other celebs have tweeted and quickly deleted the #FreePalestine hashtag.
As Hamas fires thousands of rockets into Israel, where are the celebs using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to support Israel’s right to exist? Where are the prayers for the IDF and for an end to terrorists’ use of civilians as human shields? Right here:
1. Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli
Her Instagram caption:
These days are so difficult to bare. Brave young men who have protected our country from terror. My heart goes out to their families. They will always be remembered and respected #RIP
Katie Pavlich has more at Townhall.
2. “Big Bang Theory” actress Mayim Bialik
Bialik’s full Facebook message:
If you hate me for being jewish or a supporter of the right of Israel to exist, kindly post on pages that support your opinions rather than trying to bully me and other people who are Jewish. I’m sorry there is so much hatred and miseducation but we won’t fix it by name calling Jewish celebrities, I promise. God bless America for letting us have our own opinions and God bless Israel for allowing jews to have a home. I pray for a peaceful state for Palestinians who also seek peace and want to pursue it. Not sure there is more to say.
3. Pro basketball player Omri Casspi
4. Disturbed and Device vocalist David Draiman
Draiman is a frequent retweeter of pro-Israel images and articles.
