Lana signed an open letter to President Joe Biden, thanking him for his ‘leadership’ and calling for the release of all Hamas hostages.

I might be ignorant- but does this necessarily make her pro Israel? I feel like it’s a bit broad. The only part that is bad is thanking Joe Biden for leadership (or lack thereof) I’ll be honest though, I’m kind of clueless.

Let me break it down for you. There was a vote for/against the ceasefire, aka for the genocide to stop or not.

 

The US voted against ceasefire. All other countries (or the majority, can't remember) voted for it to end.

 

Thanking Biden for what he's doing right now is like giving Hitler a thumbs up. All clear now?

If you don't read too much into it, the letter is only about advocating for the release of the hostages, which isn't wrong. However, this doesn't  mean that the signatories aren't also on the side of the Palestinians or that they support the bombings of Israel, especially since peaceful coexistence is also mentioned.

Excuse me ? "Because" ? Are you really trying to justify the fact that a terrorist group (=Hamas, officially labeled as that for tens of countries) killed more than 1400 people + is still holding people (including children) captive in horrible conditions today ? Justifying terrorists actions is CRAZY, I'm genuinely horrified when reading some of the posts on this thread. Am I the only one ? Just wondering :rip:. Supporting (or justifying) Hamas actions here in my country (France) is called "apologia for terrorism", and it's illegal. Don't know how it works in the US tho.

I also find it very weird for "fans" to keep saying that Lana is dumb, uneducated, that she doesn't know what she is talking about etc., every time she's saying something that YOU don't agree with. Maybe she's a grown, educated woman, who CHOSE to sign that letter because she wanted to. And maybe she wanted to sign it because she saw what Hamas did and wanted to stand by the thousands of bereaved families, just like Biden and almost all the democratic countries in the world did.

Palestinian people dying everyday is of course revolting. But let's not forget that Hamas is responsible for that too in many cases, by holding palestinians captive when they know Israel is going to bomb a specific spot for example. So they can, after that, say that Israel deliberately killed innocent people. So Israel is saw as the main villain and people forget that they're fighting against terrorism before all, that's what they want. Hamas is also calling for terrorist attacks everywhere in western countries so yes, they're the ennemies of everyone and some of you should be aware of that. Don't get me wrong, Israel's policies are far from perfect, but all they're trying to do right now is eradicate a terrorist movement that is dangerous for the whole world. They're defending themselves as they can and as every country in the whole world would have been defending its population after such an atrocious attack. They're also the only Jewish country, and they're only surrounded by countries that want them to disappear from the world map. I truly believe they try every time not to bomb innoccent people. In comparison, Hamas didn't care about killing innocent people, they did it on purpose. If Israel is supported by a majority of democratic countries, by your favorite artist and surprisingly not by your favorite IG page that is totally biased, or by "woke" people on X, maybe there's a reason for that. Everything's not a conspiracy.

So yeah, let Lana do her thing, have opinions, and unstan her if you want to. Some users on this thread tend to say very often "you don't know what you are talking about" but I don't think they know who they defend either. They're probably women, or gay men, that would be killed within a MINUTE in front of people that are part of Hamas.

I won't elaborate on the conflict even tho I think I'm pretty much aware of what's going on, but let's say that yes, everything's not all black or white. And there's a lot of disinformation going on on social media regarding Israel. Hamas is a very tactical and organized group that knows how to communicate, keep that in mind and try to inform yourself through independant media if you care.

Anyway, total support towards Lana and goddamn ... please stop trying to force on others your way of thinking, or your "facts" that are sometimes just fake news. I was so scared for my own family who lives there these days, and I'm happy to know that Lana is calling for the release of the hostages and that she's condemning what Hamas did. Tbh, shouldn't we ... all ? :facepalm:

 

Thanks. Finally found someone speaking out my mind in this thread. The support for a terrorist group in this thread is kinda shocking, sorry.

This post will get lost in the ongoing chaos but I agree

I mean you can (fairly) criticise Lana for signing something that appears to have been generated by ChatGPT but it's really not surprising or new 

Celebrities have a habit of being all, "PEAAAAACCCEE" without examining the complexities (at least publicly)

When i tell you my heart dropped seeing her name on that list...

But on another hand, can we stop with the "I'm sure she meant well" and "She has a good heart she just isn't well informed" excuses? It isn't like this is the first time anyways.
Not to mention, this isn't the 70s or 80s anymore, access to information has never been easier, literally one click away and she could've learned and read/seen all about the history of this ongoing genocide, especially now when for the first time ever it seems public opinion is swaying a bit into the palestinian side and videos are being posted literally everywhere. Not to mention the amount of american musicians and artists who've been very vocal about this such as kehlani and the fact that lana is friends with Elyanna who is palestinian.

And if she was living in her own bubble and hasn't been keeping up much with what's going on, then in that case maybe she shouldn't be going around signing open letters taking stances.

The levels of parasocial are reaching Taylor Swift’s fans here.

 

 Ed. I meant the second paragraph of quoted post about people making excuses for her and talking about her like they personally know her character.

I’m a little confused on whats wrong with the letter. To preface this, I’m not completely up to date on all the shit going on, but why is it bad to ask for Biden to…help? I’m not sure if they’re asking for help, but they are asking for the release of hostages?? I see 0 problem with that.
