Syrians love Israel!

February 25, 2008

Okay, so I’m slightly exaggerating, considering Paula Abdul is only 1/4 Syrian.

In case you aren’t aware of the rockets being launched at Israel, specifically Sderot,  the Palestinians have been launching Qassam rockets at Israel for years now and on a daily basis. More rockets have been launched since the beginning of 2008 than in all of 2007, and they have taken lives of men, women, and children alike.

Anyway, as a launch for Israel’s 60th birthday celebrations, this Tuesday (Feb. 25)  there will be a benefit concert in Los Angeles for the city of Sderot which has had rockets launched at it literally every day. Paula Abdul will be hosting the benefit concert, and many celebs, including Sylvester Stalone and Jon Voight, and will also feature a performance by Ninet Tayeb (who I love even though I’m not 12).

10 students from Sderot have been flown in to LA as guests of honor and they got to dine with Ninet, visit LA landmarks such as the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the school that inspired 90210 in Beverly Hills. They will also be attending an NBA game and be given a tour of Universal Studios.

  1. Paula’s dad grew up in Syria, but he’s Jewish. So’s her mother.


  2. I had NO idea. Or I did and forgot all about it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.


  3. Paula Abdul is a nice Jewish girl!
