Justin Bieber refused join the Israeli Prime Minister, who planned a joint meeting with Jewish victims of rocket fire from Gaza.
Benjamin Netanyahu was scheduled to host pop star at his Jerusalem office. The israeli PM was planning to take advantage of the PR situation, and invited a group of kids from communities near Gaza border to attend.
But the pop sensation Justin Bieber refused to meet with children living in communities affected by Gaza rocket fire, Channel Two reported on Tuesday.
The children had disembarked from a school bus just before it was hit by a Hamas rocket last Thursday, critically wounded a teen and moderately wounding the bus driver.
Bieber reportedly refused to meet the children, which led Netanyahu to cancel the meeting.
Upon arriving in Israel on Monday, the singer was met by throngs of tween girls who mobbed his Tel Aviv hotel.
Some 200 young fans gathered at Tel Aviv’s Sheraton Hotel Monday morning, staying there for hours in the hope of catching sight of the phenom. Bieber is scheduled to give a concert in Tel Aviv on Thursday night.
“We arrived especially on a flight from Eilat,” said Yaakov Melamed, father of a 12-year old girl – one of about 200 groupies in the hotel’s lobby on Monday. “We are following him everywhere,” said Adi, 14, from Ganei Tikva. “I will go with him to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, and I’ve been waiting here since eight in the morning,” she said.

To mix pop-artists with politics is not uncommon. Band Aid had great success, forcing the World to think about the starving children in Africa.
The Israeli prime Minister must not act like a disappointed kid, refusing to meet Justin Bieber. It is the Canadian pop stars sovereign choice to accept his Public Relation stunt or not.
Justin Bieber must likewise take a look in the mirror. Is Jewish children suffering from trauma caused by Islamic terrorism, not worthy of his time and attention?
Why is He refusing to bless Israel?
Then Balak said to Balaam, “Neither curse them at all nor bless them at all!”
To ignore Israels pain, is a sin. God of the Bible demand from us, that we bless Israel. Care for her, and have compassion on His people.
[ Comfort for God’s People ] Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
To harm Israel might be the most foolish thing you ever did. It not repented for, it will have consequences for eternity.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
