Renowned singer and songwriter John Legend attacked Israel with criticism, accusing the Jewish state of mistreating Palestinians. He made such a statement on the Mehdi Hassan show.
“When I see what happens to the Palestinian people when they are clearly unable to enjoy all the rights they deserve, this is an extremely unfair and difficult life that they have to lead. It's not fair, “the singer said.
John Legend urged the United States to adhere to” higher standards ” against Israel, because America calls Israel its ally and sends aid and support to the Jewish state.
“ What Israel is doing to the Palestinian people is unfair and should not be done on our behalf and with our resources that contribute to this, '' the performer emphasized.
It is worth noting that this is not the first attack by John Legend on Israel. During Operation Wall Guard he wrote posts in support of the Palestinians. In addition, the singer defended Congresswoman Ilkhan Omar, who was accused of anti-Semitism.
