Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and other celebrities at a concert in support of Gaza
American singers Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez and British actress Cara Delevingne attended a charity event to raise money for Gaza, angering the Israeli side, which appeared in its media.
The event was organized by the Rami Youssef Comedy Club in Brooklyn, where funds raised through the comedy show were donated to American Near East Refugee Assistance (ANERA).
The famous trio later arrived with Anya Taylor-Joy and Zoe Kravitz, the Statesman newspaper reported on Sunday.
After arriving in New York, Taylor Swift was spotted having a night out with friends Selena Gomez and Cara Delevingne.
The trio visited the Rami Youssef Comedy Club in Brooklyn, which supports organizations that help Palestine.
Notably, Taylor Swift is the most influential person in 2023 according to Time magazine’s list, while Selena Gomez is one of the most popular people in the world with 429 million followers on Instagram.
Pictures of the stars leaving the concert hall sparked controversy on the Internet and angered the Israeli press.
After Youssef’s newspaper posted on Instagram that one hundred percent of the proceeds from the club’s activities will be donated to Anera, commentators saw this as the star’s pledge to Gaza and Palestine.
One commenter wrote: “Selena Gomez went to Rami Youssef’s comedy show, then went out to eat with Taylor Swift, Cara Delevingne, Anya Taylor-Joy and Zoe Kravitz at a restaurant in Brooklyn, New York.” Another said: “Taylor Swift shows her. Support for Palestine,” and some debated “Has Selena Gomez done more for Palestine this year than Taylor Swift has?”

In this case, American-Egyptian comedian Rami Youssef confirmed on his Instagram page that all the money collected from the comedy show will be donated to “ANERA”, which angered the aggressive media.
The stars’ participation in the event angered Israel, which demonized the Hebrew media and its donor agency. The Israeli press attacked the agency, describing it as biased and criticizing the crimes of the occupation for no other reason than Israel demonizes it.
As for “ANERA” which started its work in 1968, it affirms that it has no political or religious bias.
The foundation mobilizes resources for immediate emergency relief and long-term sustainable development in the areas of health, education and the economy.
