Selena Gomez on Instagram: Pray for Gaza...

by at . Comments

Selena Gomez has made her opinion known on the raging conflict in the Middle East.

Writing on Instagram that "It's About Humanity," Selena posted the controversial message last night for folks to "Pray for Gaza" in regard to the ongoing battle being waged between Israel and Palestine in that region.

Gomez is the latest star to weigh in on this difficult topic, with Rihanna (accidentally, she claims) Tweeting "Free Palestine" earlier in the week, only for the message to be quickly deleted.

But Selena isn't backing off.

“Please pray for those families and babies today. Please always remember what’s important in life,” she explained.

Many are now wondering whether Gomez actually supports Hamas - which has launched numerous missiles in an attempt to destroy Israel - or if she's just expressing prayers for peace in general.

It certainly sounds like the latter, doesn't it?

Gomez concluded her message with the hashtag "#wearethenextgeneration."

At least she's moved on from Justin Bieber, right? At least for the time being.

Here's a look at other stars who have gone political online... and then regretted going so:

Rihanna claims she never meant to Tweet #FreePalestine. The message was taken down immediately after going up.

I gained a lot of respect for Selena after this. Her stand for humanity just shows how nice and brave she is, usually hollywood celebs are too afraid of the jews and their money , so they never say anything. Everybody says that this is a political issue, but it's not it's a humanity issue. Massacers are happening right now and Israel is defendind itself ( really? Obama. From who??) Gaza is the most isolated town in the world. It is like a giant prison. And israel is looking to expand their land. Look Selena may lost fans ( heartless ones) but she gained thousands new one ( who has a heart) God bless her.

Israel is a stolen land, it originally belongs to palestinians. And they have been tortured by israelis for decades now. They stole their lands, killed their children and women, they destroyed everything they made. This is not a war, hamas is just a self defence group created 8 years ago by gazans to defend themselves and their land. Gaza has no army, no navy , no technology becaust it's simply the most isolated town in the whole world. You jews when you here the alarm sound you run to hide, GAZANS HAVE NOWHERE TO HIDE!!!! They just stay there waiting for their death. Hamas has every single right to defend themselves, israelis has destroyed them. They are here to defend there people and return back their land.

You people all believe the same thing... You all believe your weenies come from heaven and that this gives you some sanctified right to pass your collection plate at gunpoint for the gods of communism (yourselves). "Nobody panics when things go according to plan, even if the plan is horrifying." I'm not on anyone's side. If the Iranians nuke Israel, the Palestinians also die in the fallout. If the Israelis nuke Tehran that doesn't bother me either. It is a win/win situation for me, because I don't like any of them. Antagonists on both sides profit from further conflict and you fake progressive "human rights" organizers would be unemployed if the conflicts ended. You feed off of the misery for your paychecks. I'd happily bury you all in the same hole so there is truly peace at last.

For
all those ignorance people who their only source of information about the
situation is the media and still thinks they has the right to say their opinion.
Let's make things clear. Israel
not facing an army, Israel
faces a terrorist organization. The hamas was sending dozens of rockets to Israel before Israel even reacted. You say
"look at the facts 200 Palestinians died and only a few Israelis!" so
first of all im sorry that not "enough" Israelis died to get your understanding
and support. Im sorry that we developed the "Iron Dome" a technology that protects us and without it
the Israeli people would have got much more casualties then the Palestinians does .im sorry that
when I hear the alarm that warns me from rockets fall in my city im running to
the shelter to save my freaking life !!And
not being used as a human shield by choice because it's pretty photogenic for
the foreign media. Israel
has the technology to finish the threat from the air and not put any Israeli
solider in the line of fire, but it choosing not to. Israel
chose to send its soldiers into Gaza
to destroy specific targets of threat and not harm any innocent Palestinian
civilian. A few days ago Israel
made an unilateral ceasefire while the hamas continued sending hundreds of
rockets to Israel.
Let's stop being so hypocrite; if a situation like that would have happen in any other country the government would
have finished the threat long ago. The u.s.a would burn the whole place to the
ground!! Israel
is the only country who is ready to have a negotiation with terrorists!
Something more?

Lol i don't care about hamas or whatever but if a people in a country are called " settlers ", it means everything.Now who are the settlers in this conflict and keep established in the borders ?
I see in your comment the terrorist argument to justify those evil and non human actions . Well i hope Israel will pay one day. What goes around comes around.

This imbecile has a Walt Disney education. If the United States happen to go to war this under educated performer would mistakenly join the wrong side.
