Criticized American actress Susan Sarandon after she shared a post alleging that Israel attacked its citizens on October 7. In the post, written by American tweeter and politician Jackson Hinkle, who spreads anti-Israel propaganda, he wrote: "Israel and Haaretz have now confirmed that an Israeli helicopter murdered Israeli civilians on October 7."
Haaretz reported that according to a police source, the police investigation found that an IDF combat helicopter that arrived at the Nova Party area from the Ramat David base fired at the terrorists, apparently accidentally hitting some of the revellers who were there. However, there was no claim in Haaretz that all the fatalities were the result of an Israeli attack, but perhaps only a few. According to the police investigation, the first helicopter was dispatched to the compound only many hours after the massacre began.
Haaretz's report was echoed on social media, in many cases distorted and distorted, and the Palestinian Authority also issued a statement saying that the massacre at the Nova party near Reim was carried out "as a result of an attack on Israeli helicopters," and then removed it from the networks, following American pressure.
Sarandon's sharing of the post led to many condemnations against her. Alongside many web surfers who criticized the echo of the lie, journalists from around the world also spoke out against it. A reporter for the Jewish News Agency (JTA) wrote that "Susan Sarandon is a far-right anti-Semitic rag who publishes a lie," and the Atlantic correspondent also condemned Sarandon, writing that "Sarandon has poor moral and political judgment."
Susan Sarandon ("The Rocky Movie Show," "Thelma & Louise") has long been identified with radical leftist positions and pro-Palestinian activism. Last week, the actress participated in a demonstration of hundreds of pro-Palestinians in New York, justifying the October 7 massacre and strongly attacking Israel.
"I stand here with my white privilege and say that you don't have to be a Palestinian to stand with the Palestinians," she said to applause from the audience. "You don't have to be a Palestinian to understand that the slaughter of nearly 5,000 children is unacceptable and a war crime. You don't have to be a Palestinian to understand that war crimes happen every single day, according to the UN and other human rights organizations. This is a time for education, because as they said before me, so many people don't understand the context in which the October 7 attack took place, they don't understand the history of what has happened to the Palestinian people for 75 years. So it's an opportunity to educate people if they have an open mind, if they can move beyond the tribal instincts that have separated us for so long. It's a time to have an open heart, it's a time to be strong and it's a time for Palestine to be free."
