This is not the first time that Sarandon has expressed her support for the Palestinian people, as she was particularly active during the last Israeli war on Gaza , last May, when she tweeted: “These are not clashes, this is a highly armed military force that is killing civilians to steal their homes.. This is occupation and colonialism.” “.
She also tweeted in solidarity with the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem: "I am with the Palestinian people who are facing ethnic cleansing and intimidation at the hands of the Israeli government and Jewish settler organizations... The world is watching.
