On Nov. 14, Israel launched an air attack against targets associated with the Hamas, a Palestinian party that has ruled Gaza since 2007, making it the biggest major conflict between the two since December 2008. Some celebrities have taken it to Twitter to display their feelings to their followers.

Since the Israeli attack on Gaza on Nov. 14, the Hamas have fired back with 300 rockets into Israel within the last 24 hours with some hitting around Tel Aviv, according to the New York Times.

Celebrities have taken it to twitter to voice their opinion. See what they’re saying!

Kim Kardashian: “praying for everyone in Israel!” She continued to tweet, “praying for everyone in Palestine… as well as across the world!”

Kim received major backlash for her tweets which sparked Russell Simmons to speak on behalf of Kim: “Many of your friends support you. There’s no need to apologize … [ur] intention to promote love to 16 million followers is appreciated.”

Debra Messing: “The bodies of four sibling children who were killed in #Gaza today pic.twitter.com/s2V8wc44” I can’t bear this. #stopthemadness.”

Anderson Cooper: “Bldg hit by multiple rockets. Saw them slam into lower floors. Ran to scene. Bldg on fire. ambulance crews pulled out 1 man severely burned.”

Anderson was recording live for CNN when an airstrike occurred. He continues to leave updates live from Gaza via Twitter.

Questlove: “twitter is for education. are there any credible blogs/articles i should be reading concerning Israel & Palestine that i might have missed?”

Omar Epps: “Don’t care what side you’re on, the killing of innocent women & children is heinous & deplorable! #PeaceInTheMidEast”

Holly Robinson Peete: “On way to school kids asking me to explain the Israeli Gaza conflict since I was just in that region in spring… *Takes deep breath*…” Holly continued to tweet, “…wish I could call Bill Clinton for some talking points… #explainingwartokids.”

Bar Refaeli: “unfortunately, there is a war going on in my home land Israel, that has to defend itself from missiles being shot by Hamas on public areas.” She continued to say, “i prey for the safety of the citizens on both sides and for the day we will live in peace and harmony Amen.”

What are your thoughts about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, HollywoodlLifers?

Salome i personally live in the north we dont get hit much over here but the people that live in the south get hit by rockets every day . I dont deny that people die over there but people die over here too and you seem to think that we only kill but dont get killed , this war started only because the palestinians started bombing us and it was time for us to protect ourselfes , today they put a bomb on a bus in Tel Aviv and wounded dozenes of people , but you dont mention that when you protect them , you think that they are so innocent , well they arent.

Salome who are you to talk you have never been to Israel , for so many years we are suffering and we deserve some peace and quiet ! You dont know what is going on here men women and children die here everyday too but you seem to forget that there are two sides in this war and we are suffering just the same as they do , so until you live here or even come to see what its like you just shouldnt talk about us being unhuman , because its only makes you sound silly.

are you all freaking blind?! the Palestine people have no respect to human life! they put their bomb base in peoples home and then all the world thinks we are bad.. we send them messages and warnings that we are going to attack! and what do they do in return? bomb us with hundreds of rockets. i live in israel and i live in fear that any minute there will be a siren and i would have to run to the bomb shelter. you dont know how it feels. i pity all the people who go against gods people. because god will punish them. you should read more articles and news and see that the Palestine people are making it all up. god bless you all.. and the people who just cant see the truth.. and i hope some day there will peace and justice.

Salome you dont understand because you dont live here but the palestinian people have been sending rockets to Israel for years and Israel didnt respond , so you should think again who is trying to kill who !!! Israel doesnt want to rob the palestinian people from their land because its not their land its ours and we let them live on it.

ya well hamas was created 2 decades ago…. the war has been goin on for more than 6 decades… who are you going to blame for the killing and the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian race before hamas ever existed??? no one because Israel wants to steal the land and remove the palestinian people off the face of the earth… and forced an organization such as hamas to be created,,, you see if the ZIonists treated the palestinans right there wouldnt be such madness its basic logic but of course you wouldn’t happen to care since it’s not you’re people that are being evacuated from the land and being oppressed and killed on a daily basis

So Miss Raphaeli thinks that her “hometown” is being attacked? Think again stupid: Israel has nuclear whereas Gaza has “rockets”. So it’s not a fair war and the victims are for sure from the palestine side not from the israeli side. As always, jew and isreali rule the western media and they make people think that Israel is a victim where in fact they are doing just what Hitller did 80 years ago: a Genocide.

umar – if you honestly believe that this all started from a civilian death, you are misinformed. The gaza Israeli border was filled with explosive devices along the gaza side within tunnels. In addition, even if you want to say that it did “start” with the unfortunate civilian death of a young boy, firing 300 rockets into Israel is the reaction?
And to your message about Ethnic Cleasning, Israel is the only country in the middle east with the freedom of religion. Many muslims, live, work and get healthcare living in Israel. Ethnic cleansing, is simply propaganda that is being perpetuated which is untrue.

It is still a Holy War,Started with Isaac and Ishmael both Children of Abraham. Yes it is this century One had the blessing of God and the other was sent into the desert,but still blessed as God said all Abraham’s seed would be blessed for all time. I suggest you read the Bible to understand the spirit behind what is going on in the spirit of man. Isreal is still and always will be the heart of God.And that is written. And to come against Isreal is to come against God. We have to just pray for peace.

“”It is written””
What a rebuffade?!! But what is really written? The book of Genesis is now a new book. How That?
Simply said, the original book has only phrases. The subdivisions which perverted the story are not in the original book. They had read the Jews the original text, after they added the subdivisions. So when the Adam is created, the men were already there on Earth. The God and the Yahweh God become two different entities. So it is not God who promised the Promised Land. The Jews are as victims as we are of the lie of the Priests, the secret society that had always been present behind the religions. We all are victims of gangsters who utilized religion as tool for controlling the populations. The three religions must fall, must learn that they believed a lie.

The above post is what Israelis and Zionist Jews really believe. They are, by definition, jihadists. Conversely, the Palestinians are just trying to hold on to what land they still have. Theirs is a secular struggle.

Mainstream media tends to use religiously charged anti-Israeli soundbites from Palestinians who have recently lost loved ones in these bombings to paint them as the religiously zealous aggressors. What should be understood is both the forementioned context in which these statements are made, and that this is not the impetuous motivation for their actions.

Think of it this way: If a woman is being raped, and she kicks and bites and scratches her attacker, is that an act of aggression? Is she committing an act of violence? If she prays to God for it to stop, are her actions therefor religiously based?

To AG you talk about facts so lets get the facts straight. Before the rockets starting shooting over to israel, idf soldiers killed 4 youths between 15-19 as they were playing soccer for target practice. But i grt these kind of facts just get in the way of the ethnic cleansing that israel is perpetuating.

people need to get their facts straight, Israel didn’t “launch” this attack. Rockets were being fired from Gaza into Israel for Days without Israel launching and retaliation. Israel, does have the right to defend itself.

Hollywood was started by Jewish men and women and still control the Industry,They are very serious about Isreal and They are Gods Chosen people,That is the truth. A people who have been persecuted because of the mantel God put over them. Thank God for them all

They were chosen by God..false. They believe it… yes.God would have said that for the desert, which is their homeland, they have to plant tree-seeds. Yahweh God has promised the Promised Land. God and Yahweh God were two different entities. Yahweh God was the Giant who sent his henchmen to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. The desert … their homeland… the Jews were those who after a very severe drought rejected the Pharaoh as god but a remnant of fidels to pharaohs remained, the Jews, but their homeland was by then a desert. And to heal that today desert we may start with planting tree seeds. You want water then get forests.
