Israeli ambassadors to the United Nations have blasted ‘Harry Potter’ star Emma Watson after she shared a message of “solidarity” with Palestinian activists.

31 year old Watson, best known for playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, shared an image of a pro-Palestinian rally with the phrase ‘solidarity is a verb’ to her 64.2 million Instagram followers on Sunday.

On Monday former Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, tweeted a screenshot of Watsons post with the caption: ’10 points from Gryffindor for being an antisemite.’ 

Gilad Erdan, Israel’s current Ambassador to the UN, also tweeted his dismay at the image, saying ‘Fiction may work in Harry Potter but it does not work in reality. 

The diplomats have since been blasted online themselves…. by all sides.

RT reports: Danon’s tweet was met with furious backlash from all sides of the conflict. Israeli writer Abraham Gutman described the former envoy’s argument as “dehumanizing to Palestinians *and* a mockery to actual antisemitism.” 

“I remember back when Israel’s apologists made an effort to justify their smears,” Al Jazeera analyst Omar Baddar tweeted. “Now they don’t bother … It’s hard to know whether to laugh or cry!”

“Equating support for Palestinians to antisemitism presumes that repression of the Palestinian people is an inherently Jewish quality, which is the real antisemitic sentiment here,” another commenter wrote.

  1. Silly pic to share really. The whole point of saying something “is a verb” is that it involves some kind of action on your part. Sharing it on twitter doesn’t really count.

  2. England set up both Pakistan on I dias border and Israel on Palestine with intentions as mitary industrialists. Boring little people buy into the show.

  3. Gutless naval-gazers – It’s always the poor little weasel that everybody hates – This cry-baby stuff makes me sick.

    • Who bought America Who bought Canada or Australia or New Zealand or South America or Antarctica Wake up.

    • England created a Israel because the Palestinians were Hitlers allies and they lost the war and so lost their land.

      • The Prcess started long before that . Read the Balfour Declarartion .

        The act just happened then because the English sheeted their pants of the Terrorist Attack of Ben Gurion .
