Mia Khalifa Speaks Out Against Offensive Pro-Israel Tweet; Lena Headey Joins Calls for Ceasefire
In a disturbing turn of events, a pro-Israel Twitter account, The Mossad: Satirical, Yet Awesome, recently shared a graphic image of former adult film star Mia Khalifa. The manipulated image included the Israeli Occupation Forces in the background, brandishing weapons. The account, known for its satire, temporarily shifted its focus to share real-time information in support of the Israeli military against Hamas terrorists.
Mia Khalifa, who has been actively advocating for the Palestinian cause, did not hold back in her response. Quoting the post on Twitter, she labeled the account as “genocidal rapists” and criticized the rhetoric, pointing out Israel as a safe haven for convicted sexual offenders.
Genocidal rapists. I’d say I’m disgusted but this sort of rhetoric is on par for Zionists seeing as how Israel is a safe haven state for convicted sexual offenders https://t.co/iTvOOcsrQF

Despite facing backlash from pro-Israel accounts, Mia received support from users condemning the offensive language and expressing solidarity with her stance on Palestine. One user noted that such rhetoric is consistent with Zionists, while others praised Mia for her dignity and humanity, contrasting it with what they perceived as a lack of these qualities in Israeli society.
Amid the negative comments, Mia Khalifa remained resolute in her position, emphasizing the need to use her platform to address the ongoing crisis in Gaza and systemic ethnic cleansing. She stated, “It doesn’t end with Gaza, they’ve made that abundantly clear.”
Game of Thrones star Lena Headey, known for her role as Cersei Lannister, also spoke out on the issue. Sharing an image on Instagram that called for an immediate ceasefire and describing the situation as a “humanitarian catastrophe,” Headey expressed deep sadness and anger. Her recent Instagram posts have been dedicated to advocating for the Palestinian cause while calling for the protection of both Palestinian and Jewish lives.
As tensions continue in the region, voices like Mia Khalifa and Lena Headey add to the growing international calls for a ceasefire and a resolution to the longstanding conflict between Israel and Palestine.
