Netanyahu Cancels Bieber Visit Over Singer’s Refusal To Meet Kids Who Suffered Gaza Rocket Fire
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has canceled a meeting at his Jerusalem office with Justin Bieber because the singer has not agreed to meet with children from communities hit by Gaza rocket fire.
Taking advantage of the PR opportunity presented by the meeting with Bieber, Netanyahu’s advisers invited a group of children from communities near the Gaza border to attend.
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.
