One Direction's Zayn Malik

I'm Definitely Pro-Palestine

Zayn Malik from One Direction has dared to go where Rihanna chickened out ... he just tweeted, "#FreePalestine."

The 21-year-old singer -- who grew up Muslim -- posted his comment Sunday night and lots of followers quickly reacted.  One posted, "Are you still alive?  You should be dead by now and kill yourself." Another said,  "You and your family need to die."

Someone -- apparently in Israel -- wrote, "U have fans in #Israel.  It broke me that one of my idols wand (sic) me to die."

Malik -- unlike Rihanna -- didn't back down.  She removed an identical tweet 8 minutes after it was posted.

Free Palestine, indeed --- Free them from HAMAS!

Israel has no problem with Palestine, it is trying to eradicate Hamas, the terror organization akin to the Taliban and Al Queida, who have taken up residency in Palestine.

As far as the innocent civilians and children being killed that is the fault of Hamas. Israel gives warning on where they are going to strike and Hamas places children and woman in those buildings. They're using them as human shields.

Free Palestine from Hamas!

Just remember all Muslims living in the US are anti-American -- and when it comes down to it they will turn on us when it counts.

regardless of how you feel about the situation the fact is..... if the palestinians lay down their arms, there will be peace. If the Israelis lay down their arms there will be no Israel.

Good for him. I am anti-Palestine, more correctly, anti-Hamas, but at least he is sticking to his guns and not backing down from his statement. Not that I really care what actors or entertainers think, but at least back up your opinion.

I wish guns, missiles, rockets, etc. had never been invented. If you want to kill someone, you should have to look them in the eye first.

From the comments on tmz, you would think the people posting are experts on international affairs or work for UN and NATO. Stfu idiots. Stop choosing sides. U don't know sht. Let those idiots kill each other and get it over with so someone wins already. Their drama is old.

Just like Global Warming, Homosexuality the power of media and celebs to transform the mindset of Americans... There is an agenda to make Americans believe that Israel is the bad one. Ironic that a report came out today saying that 5 people control 90 percent of the media that Americans get their information from. Seems like some hard pushing on B list celebs with their pro Palestine stance.. Wonder why!?
