Simon Cowell gave $150,000 to sponsor Israeli Army that killed thousands of innocent Palestinians

Simon Cowell has been criticized on social media by pro-Palestinian activists after it was learned that he donated $150,000 to the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) at a fundraiser last year.

FIDF, established by Holocaust survivors in 1981, says on its website that it offers Israeli soldiers “love, support and care in an effort to ease the burden they carry on behalf of the Jewish community worldwide.”

The Beverly Hills fundraiser, hosted by TV mogul Haim Saban, raised a total of more than $20million for the FIDF from among its 1,000 guests.

 The X Factor media tycoon has been barraged with graphic images of dead Palestinian children by campaigners who charge him with sponsoring the Israeli assault on Gaza.

Below an image of four dead Palestinian children on stretchers, one Tweeter –under the name Leema – told Cowell: “You have blood on ur hands.”

Another, by the name kiks, sent him an image of a father clutching his dead baby and wrote: “u donated money to israel to do this. Now imagine this was ur child.”

A third, tmrottweiler, said: “Well at least Simon Cowell doesn’t have to go to Israel to see how the money he raised 4 the idf is being spent he just has 2 watch the news.”

Other messages indicated the TV star was part of a “Zionist” plot and indicted him with submitting to orders from his “masters in Tel Aviv.”
