Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist, is facing harsh criticism for omitting Israel’s terrorist activities in a tweet in which she commented on the recent violent clashes between Palestine and Israel.
The videos and images of Israeli forces’ inhumane attack on worshippers in Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque have sent shockwaves around the world, with Muslim communities protesting Israel’s barbaric act of terrorism.
Some were outraged that Malala was not standing up for Palestinian Muslims amid her massive international presence. Internet users agree Malala Yousafzai has the ability to fight for the oppressed Muslim brothers and sisters in Gaza and Jerusalem.
The violence in Jerusalem – especially against children – is unbearable. This long conflict has cost many children their lives and their futures. Leaders must act immediately – there is no peace when children and civilians are not safe. #AlAqsa https://t.co/bLv3XyA1OV

Enraged social media users blasted her for deliberately distorting the reality and gravity of the abuse and serious human rights abuses in Palestine. Malala, on the other hand, has not reacted to the social media uproar.
Netizens stepped in to correct the Nobel Laureate’s tweet for failing to highlight Israel’s brutal act of terrorism.
On the other hand, Lebanese-American webcam model Mia Khalifa, who is notorious for her unethical past, has been throwing light on the Palestinian situation.
Mia Khalifa, like many other followers, managed to emphasise the truth through Instagram’s deletion of her messages in favour of Palestinian rights.
However, in her recent tweet, she wrote,
“Imagine I walk into a McDonald’s and demand they change the name to Miacdonalds and leave the premises immediately. And when they don’t, I b*mb that McDonald’s into oblivion and call it self defense.”

The tweet stated unequivocally that bombing would not imply self-defense throughout either situation.
It should be noted that Hamas has fired 130 missiles at the Israeli city of Tel Aviv after massive airstrikes in Gaza that have killed 28 Palestinians and injured many others.
The 2014 war between Israel and Palestine resulted in extreme violent clashes, with rockets fired at Tel Aviv killing two Israeli women.
In retaliation for the building that was demolished in Gaza, Hamas said it fired hundreds of missiles at the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.
Tensions in Jerusalem have been heightened by the proposed forcible removal of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood, as well as an Israeli forces raid on Al Aqsa on one of Ramadan’s holiest nights.
