Did Justin Bieber really insult Israel? Let me know what you think.

According to the Haaretz article, “Netanyahu Cancels Bieber Date Over Refusal to Meet Kids Affected by Gaza Rockets,” Barak Ravid recounts reports that Canadian singer Justin Bieber declined to meet children who narrowly escaped being hit by rocket fire as they exited an Israeli school bus shortly before it was hit several weeks ago. A 16-year-old boy was seriously injured in the attack.

The children had been invited to an already scheduled meeting between Bieber and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the prime minister sought to draw attention to the plight of children living in Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip which have in recent months come under increased fire from rockets launched by Palestinian terrorists.

According to Haaretz, Netanyahu canceled the meeting after his attempt to include the children was turned down.
