Selena Gomez Prays For Gaza And Palestinians, Jewish Fans Say Singer Wrong About Israel

Selena Gomez upset many people around the world when she commented on the situation in Israel by posting on Instagram that people should “pray for Gaza” and “it’s about humanity.”

In a related report by The Inquisitr, Joan Rivers ripped Selena Gomez a new one after she heard about the singer’s stance on Israel. To give you an idea of how far off celebrities can be in their opinion, I would suggest checking out our special report on how Jew hate in the world has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years.

Two Jewish girls who actually live near the Gaza strip were saddened by Gomez’ take on Israel and decided they wanted to speak out on the matter. With the help of Rachel Delia Benhaim, a writer for Jewcy, two of Selena’s “biggest fans” in Israel created an open letter to the pop singer. I’ve highlighted some of the sections from the letter:

“I’m writing to you on behalf of two 12-year-old girls living in Southern Israel who were upset by something you posted to Instagram a few weeks ago – a post which expressed sympathy for the people of Gaza, but also provided a space for your followers to condemn and delegitimize the State of Israel in the comments.”

“And then you let them down. You hurt them. You prayed for Gaza, but not Israel, taking sides in a conflict that is not your own. By doing that, you isolated some fans.”

“Selena, Noa and Yarden have something to say. They love you. They idolize you. That’s why they want to say this – because they’re worried that their idol hates them simply because they’re Israeli. I wanted to relay their message to you.”

“‘Everything you say about the Arab-Israeli conflict is wrong. It’s so much more complicated than anyone not living here can imagine,’ Yarden said. ‘Even the people in central and northern Israel don’t understand it the way we do. So, Selena, why did you say what you did?’

“Israelis, like all Middle Easterners, are known for their generosity and hospitality. ‘We’d be more than happy to host you for however long,’ Yarden said. ‘You can even stay with me or Noa – we have safe rooms, bomb shelters, in our houses. We have to, given the number of rockets that are fired at us daily.'”

The open letter goes on to explain just how the Hamas rockets and the situation with the Palestinians affects their lives. Selena Gomez has previously responded to the controversy she created by claiming she did not intend to take sides against Israel. Speaking via Instagram again, she said, “And of course to be clear, I am not picking any sides. I am praying for peace and humanity for all!”
