Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



Justin Timberlake is under fire from Palestinian fans after posting a picture of himself praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem and referring to “Israel” in the accompanying caption.

The pop star visited the holy site before a concert in Tel Aviv and shared an image (see right and below).

He wrote, “The Holy Land… What an experience. I will never forget this day. #Israel.”

That last part upset a number of Timberlake’s Instagram followers.

“Correction : you are in Palestine not israel #disapointed,” wrote one person.

Another detractor commented, “It’s palastine not f*ckin israel.”

“Dude stfu sh*t like this makes me wanna change the song when your music comes on,” said another.

Timberlake had his defenders, too.

“Welcome to #israel justin, so glad u came, have fun!!!” declared one admirer.

Another person wrote, “I can’t seem to find Palestine on the globe. #Israel.”
