Bieber to Israeli Prime Minister: Bring on the Kids

4/12/2011 8:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber claims he's very much pro-kid during his stay in Israel, despite what appears to be a pissed off Prime Minister who abruptly canceled a meeting with the pop star.

According to Israeli news reports, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 86'd a scheduled meeting with the Biebs, after he reportedly refused to meet with kids who survived a recent rocket attack in Gaza.

Bieber's rep is not denying Justin wouldn't meet the kids, but says it's more of a scheduling thing:  "Despite some logistical challenges, Justin is enjoying his first trip to Israel." 

P.R. guru Matthew Hiltzik adds, "Justin welcomes the chance to meet with kids facing difficult circumstances, regardless of their background, and in fact, he has already invited children from the Sderot area to be his guests with other fans at his concert in Tel Aviv on Thursday night."

*** Just terrible. First the "Barefoot Contessa" AKA Ina Garten refusing to share a lunch with a little who has rare leukemia and is terminal and now Bieber refusing to make time for a bombing victim. Is he anti-Semitic? Or a Muslim hater? Either way he is 'NOT WINNING'. Never liked Bieber anyway - wayyyyy overrated and with his haircut he could take up ice skating Dorothy Hamill-style. ***

Bibi is just trying to use the children as propaganda. 1200 children died when Israel bombed Gaza, yet we are still talking about Serdot where no children died. Because the children in Gaza were Palestenians they don't count apparently.

There is a hidden agenda in place. Why do many of these popstars (after making it big) suddenly make a trip to Israel. Rihann's low-key or rather not so low-key trip to Israel is to be taken note of. Now the young and impressionable Justin Beiber is in town...the Zionist agenda and their "hidden" control of the U.S. cannot be more transparent. Desensitising the world to the destructive capabilites of Zionism is in fact what is being done. Be wary and watchful for what you see is definitely not what you are getting.

How cynical that some in Israel want to score a public relations coup by using this Canadian teenager as a pawn in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Bieber has no obligation to kowtow to political grandstanding. If bombing victims truly want to see him, they can follow his itinerary or attend one of his concerts.

First of all, some of y'all are full of ****, I will give my hat off to Bieber since he does want to try and make peace in the Middle East, and if Netanyahu really doesn't want to be a part of that, he is the ****ing loser!!!!

*** #14. Good. Give your hat to Bieber - but make sure it's a yarmulke 'cause he's in Israel - and anyone who doesn't use his or her fame to help a kid feel better is a loser in my book. It takes 10 minutes of his day to say hello to a sick little kid. He's obviously too busy and too important to be humble. ***
