British reality shows judge Simon Cowell is being virtually attacked these days by Pro-Palestinian activists over a $150,000 donation to the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) association.
The donation was made about a year ago during a Los Angeles fundraiser organized by Israeli-American businessman Haim Saban, who managed to raise some NIS 70 million ($20 million) to fund IDF soldiers’ studies and help their families.
The issue made headlines recently after pro-Palestinian activists picked up on the a status mentioning the donation which was posted on the Facebook page of “The X-Factor” television music competition created by Cowell.
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.”
Someone else wrote that “Simon Cowell donated £100,000 to the IDF to impress his Jewish girlfriend.” Another comment accused him of taking orders from his “masters in Tel Aviv.”
