Arutz Sheva reports: Soon after actor Morgan Freeman posted a Facebook profile photo in which he was smiling against the background of Jerusalem’s Old City, his Facebook page – which is “liked” by over 18.5 million people worldwide – has become a battleground for Israel’s haters and lovers.
It appears that what may set off the tirade against Freeman was the fact that he wrote under the photograph that it had been taken in “Jerusalem, Israel”.
Actor Jean-Claude Van Damme was similarly attacked two weeks ago when he wrote “Jerusalem, Israel” under a photo. It took the martial arts star an hour to change this to “Jerusalem”, but Freeman has been standing strong for almost 24 hours.
Freeman is currently promoting his National Geographic Channel series, “The Story of God with Morgan Freeman” which has been setting record ratings for the network and is the fourth most-watched telecast of all time for the US network. A preview appears above.
The six-part miniseries follows Freeman as he travels to 20 cities in seven different countries in a quest to find answers to the mysteries of faith. The photo was apparently taken when Freeman was filming in Israel, last October.
