The dire results of the two fatal shooting attacks that took place last Friday evening and Saturday morning in Jerusalem and claimed the lives of people, provoked a great wave of criticism from artists, reality stars, and network influencers who came out against the alarming security reality in which people are shot to death in the middle of the street in the capital of Israel.

"What situation do we still have to reach where we will be afraid to go to a synagogue in our own country. My heart hurts. We have no other country. This is the land of the Jewish people. That's it," actor Oral Zabri wrote with a broken heart in reference to the attack that took place on Friday evening.

"Five families who joined the bereaved family. A family that no one wants to enter, but if you enter, you don't have an exit ticket. My heart is torn," recalled Sarit Pollak.

"We left Grandma's, I said to Eliav, 'How special is Jerusalem on Shabbat? How quiet?', and then we received messages about an attack, a murder in the city. Right and left, all this nonsense, in these moments I wonder: Does it even matter? Someone the hell will wake up. God forbid their blood" , read Bar Cohen from "Big Brother".

"This severe attack is an important reminder of how divided we must not be. Our enemy does not differentiate between religious and secular, between Mizrahi and Ashkenazi, or between leftist and rightist. In places where we are divided, our enemies will come in and take advantage of our every weakness," warned sports broadcaster Rotem Israel.

"My heart is broken," added Miri Masika.

"On Shabbat evening, people go to synagogue to receive Shabbat and do not return home. We will not be caught, God forbid!" Tikva Gideon was shocked.

"I opened the phone and my eyes went dark. It didn't catch," Maya Wertheimer shared her feelings.

"Massacre on Shabbat evening. I hope all the seniors gather in the room now and carry out a severe retaliatory action befitting a sovereign power," hoped Maayan Adam.

"I am a Muslim and I tell you that this is not the real Islam. Islam is ashamed of them," wrote Kazem Khaliliya, who took part in the last season of "Big Brother".

"Look, I always thought the solution was political and not military, but today I say unequivocally, the army must enter yesterday! Wherever a terrorist is found! We will not forget or forgive," he added, which led to a strong response from a surfer who accused him of treason.

"I am a proud Israeli Arab!" Bastori replied.

 "Yesterday was the happiest evening of my life. A celebration of love, and I was only exposed to the terrible event in the morning. It shakes even in the greatest moments of happiness, the heart cries," wrote Tal Talmon, who married her partner, former soccer player Liran Strauber, on the same day.

"I can't digest it. Shabbat is cursed. I pray for the safety of the injured and thank the security forces," wrote Noa Kirel.

"A black night, and a black morning," noted Rotem Sela.

In the meantime, the singers Inbal Bibi and Eden Meiri announced that following the attacks, they decided to postpone the release of the new singles they were going to release.

Comedian Gori Alfie also canceled his performance that was supposed to take place last night, on Saturday night.

On the other hand, Eil Golan, Marina Maximilian and Rotem Cohen decided to hold their performances as planned.
