Yet, it was the calls of the death of his “brothers and sister dying” that permeated the comment section below the hilarious post of him wrestling a crocodile.

The recent escalation in violence shows similarities to 2014 when over “2,100 Gazans were killed in the seven-week war that followed, along with 73 Israelis.”
As such, the United Nations has recently expressed concerns about the growing tensions while calling on the countries’ leaders to put an end to the violence. However, with each passing day, there have been more calls for the deejay to stick up for Palestine, the country of his ancestors. (@lollseedelkoll) May 11, 2021

So DJ Khaled can drop an album and decide to ‘credit’ Allah, but he can’t even do his duty as a MUSLIM, to talk about the injustice in Palestine, especially when he’s got a huge platform? We The Best Music Group chief DJ Khaled has been thrust into the middle of the never-ending conflict between Isreal and Palestine, leading Muslims to call on the producer to lend his platform to a war that has been happening since the late 1940s.

mohamed hadid really just copied dj khaled’s post about palestine (that literslly did nothing to spread awareness or bring light to what’s happening) word for word and used the same photo….? — aneesa? As is customary, the 45-year-old took to social media to share exerts from the music videos in question. View this post on Instagram

A post shared by DJ KHALED (@djkhaled)

“He is mental, he only care about money and some wine tf are trying to convince him,” came one biting comment. Read?
— lolita? “Don’t you think it’s too late? But he doesn’t want to. SAY SOMETHING,” came another detailed comment. We condemn ALL violence and ALL incitement to violence. That’s his choice. “Palestine is burning we need you to tell and shine the light on what’s going on it will help,” echoed another. After days of name callings and pleas, DJ Khaled seemingly paused the various posts about his album with attempts to forge peace among the two warring factions. People Are Already burning,” another highlighted. Sadly, the love-filled post was not enough for those who felt he only made the post as a way to ease the tensions in his comment sections. No force should be used against those exercising their rights peacefully. “Sending love and light and prayers to my Palestinian brothers & sisters and Everyone around the world IM PRAYING FOR PEACE AND LOVE TO THE WORLD, PEACE AND LOVE TO EVERYONE,” he wrote below an image of Muslims prayer near the scared Dome Of The Rock located on Palestine’s West Bank. Palestinians are being shot at in al aqsa in the last days of Ramadan. The comment section below the social media uploads have included the usual congratulatory statements. Yet, his country of birth has not stopped him from pledging allegiance to the Muslim faith, a legacy which he continues through his two sons Asahd Tuck Khaled and Aalam Khaled. Do something! ???? You have a voice and you are literally Palestinian. DJ Khaled was born in New Orleans to first generations of Palestinian immigrants. I find it so weird that he hasn't said anything about Palestine in the past year

DJ Khaled has a huge platform where he could be talking about Palestine. Use your following to educate, to tell people what’s happening, share resources that help people understand, share explainers. This is your chance. He could’ve collaborated with Palestinian artists for his new album. Not Younes Bendjima purposely tagging DJ Khaled to call him out for not standing up for Palestine LMAOOOOO

DJ Khaled Finally Answers the Call of Thousands of Palestinians to Speak out Against a recent flair-up in the nearly Century long war between the country and neighbors Isreal – Some think it’s too late. “Inform the people what’s going on. This post isn’t helping,” one person declared. #EastJerusalem, and #Israel. Don’t be complicit in apartheid. I get that speaking up could end his career, but some of us are disappointed he won’t try. (@DanielGHajjar) May 10, 2021

not dj khaled getting bullied into posting about palestine? Meanwhile, some persons are of the belief that DJ Khaled is not required to speak out on a religious war that has been in play for nearly a century, citing that the recent flare-up is no different from the numerous others. Palestinians are being thrown out of their homes illegally. According to a recent post by Rueter, “Hostilities between Israel and Hamas escalated on Tuesday, raising the death toll in two days to 32 Palestinians and three people in Israel, with Israel carrying out multiple air strikes in Gaza and the militant group firing rockets at Tel Aviv… Gaza’s health ministry said that of the 30 reported dead, 10 were children and one was a woman.”
We are deeply concerned at the escalation of violence in occupied #Palestine, incl. DJ Khaled has previously expressed that Jamaica and its culture is one he cherishes, a fact which has led him to the island on numerous occasions and inspired the recent track “Where You Come From.”
The deejay turned producer, and label executive has been spending the last couple of weeks in promotion mode as he reels of his album Khaled Khaled and its subsequent music videos. The Muslim shrine, which was built in 691 AD was actually constructed for Jerusalem pilgrims and is a sacred area for Judaists. “Let It Go” featuring Justin Beiber and 21 Savage premiered on Youtube a day ago and has already secured well over 3 million views. “Talk about Palestine.
