This declaration followed the Hamas terrorist attacks on Saturday, which have been called the largest escalation in the region in five decades.
The attacks resulted in more than 600 fatalities among Israeli civilians and in an unknown number of Israelis being taken hostage by Hamas. Additionally, at least four Americans were confirmed dead. Over 313 Palestinians are reported dead and 1,990 are reported missing, with 20 Palestinian children killed and 121 injured, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
Here are the celebrities who have taken to social media following the terror attack:
The “Don’t Worry Darling” and “Black Widow” star, 27, posted a message in her Instagram story that she credited as originally coming from Jordan C. Brown. The message reads: “It is absolutely reasonable and logical to be opposed to the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY calling for the protection of Jews in Israel and around the world. Hamas is a terrorist organization that is attacking civilians by land, air, and sea. The images of kidnapped Israelis are shocking and devastating. Given the thousands of years of persecution of Jews, please know that your Jewish friends — even if they are not in Israel — are hurting and fearful when things like this happen and non-Jews are silent. I understand that many of us are afraid to voice an opinion because the crisis there is so nuanced and hard to understand, and we are afraid of saying the wrong thing. But we can — and must — always use our voices to denounce terrorism and the senseless murder of civilians.”
