LOS ANGELS (CC) - Last week, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, the NBA's all-time leading scorer and sometimes political lightning rod, voiced his support for Israel through a joint statement with his business partner, Maverick Carter.


Regarding the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas, two Sabbath Days ago, here is the statement:


"The murder and violence against innocent people by Hamas is terrorism," James and Carter said. "The SpringHill Company family extends our deepest condolences to Israel and the Jewish community. We pray for peace in the region and reiterate our continued commitment to fight hate in all its forms. We all must work to ensure this tragedy does not spread even more hate, racism, and antisemitism."


Some social mediaites were not happy with "King James," though.


"What about the kids on the Gaza strip that wear your jersey, play ball because of you and look up to you?" One user commented on the post. "Aren't they not children being oppressed and murdered too?"


It will be interesting to see how James' allegiance either switches, or stays, as the fog of war, international intrigue, intentional disinformation and propaganda machines start their public relations engines, in early attempts to win in the court of public opinion.


Yesterday, much of the Arab world, including Saudi Arabia, piled on Israel and blamed them for a heinous bombing of a hospital in Gaza. However, Israel's Defense Force confirmed that the hospital bombing was carried-out by Hamas.


Will the fog of war cause James, and other celebrities who now support Israel, to switch their allegiances?
