Simon Cowell Under Fire for Donation to Israeli Army

Simon Cowell Under Fire for Donation to Israeli Army


Simon Cowell is used to heaping abuse on strangers, not taking it from them.

The former American Idol judge made a fortune by mocking the singing abilities of the Fox show’s contestants. Now, Cowell is getting nasty messages from strangers, but the stakes are far higher.

Cowell gave $150,000 to the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces last year, but the donation is only now hitting the news cycle, according to YNET News.

As a result, Cowell began receiving images of dead Palestinian children on Twitter and has been accused of helping Israel invade Gaza.

One of the tweets said Cowell has “blood on your hands,” while another comment included a picture of a father holding his dead baby and read: “You donated money to Israel to do this. Now imagine this was your child.

A spokesman for Cowell, who is Christian, declined to comment on the matter to YNET News.
