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."

Its no secret that when Israel bombed the Gaza refugees during the attack they called 'cast lead'...they killed 1400 people. 400 of them were children. They bombed the UN building, the red cross, schools, farms...in one case they illed 29 members of one family when they bombed the house they were hiding in.

This is all exhaustively do***ented by the UN...and anyone with a strong stomach can search for Gaza on you tube to see evidence for themselves.

If you remove the tag of Palestenian and Israel, Jew and Arab, its clear that one side, with all the power is abusing the weaker group of people and the world must unite, speak out and boycott Israel until they start to follow international law, live within their borders or give the Arabs equal rights.

"1200 children died when Israel bombed Gaza": what a silly lie not supported by any facts..

Meeting with kids who survived numerous rocket attacks is political? How low can you sink, all of you nitwits?

Haaretz, a leading Israeli newspaper, cited Israel's Channel Two reporting that Netanyahu canceled the meeting because Bieber refused to meet with children living in communities affected by Gaza rocket fire.
According to the New York Times, Bieber's representatives say the cancellation was called off for logistical, not political reasons.
