O cantor judeu Matisyahu diz estar desapontado com todas as celebridades que se mantêm em silêncio ou equivocadas enquanto a guerra entre Israel e o grupo palestiano Hamas escala.
O artista chamou à atenção daqueles que “têm demasiado medo” de apoiar os judeus publicamente numa situação que é “maior do que as suas marcas”.
Em entrevista à “FACTZ”, o cantor de Jerusalém que se chama Matthew Paul Miller, começou por agradecer às celebridades que têm apoiado Israel.
“And to the people that are too afraid to speak up, or the people that are putting up posts and then taking them down because they’re afraid they’re going to lose followers — and [that] they’re going to lose some of their fame or their standing — I have to say, I’m sorry for you. It’s bigger than your brand”, acrescentou.
Mais de 1000 pessoas morreram, e milhares estão feridos em Israel desde que o Hamas iniciou o seu ataque.
“Isn’t just about Israel. It’s about women and children being burned in the streets, being taken from their homes, and that’s not about land, that’s a religious war”, referiu Matisyahu.
“Israel has to fight for their existence. Jews have had to fight for their right to exist since the beginning of time.”
“I don’t think that Israel is going to stand by while civilians are being taken from their homes — women, children, elderly — and paraded around the streets and massacred. I have a feeling that Israel is going to respond in a way that’s unprecedented. Jews love to argue. We love to fight. We fight amongst each other. It’s a known thing. When Jews are being targeted for being Jewish, and women and children are being burned in the streets, something inside the Jewish people comes alive and we stand together”, concluiu.
