Shakira: Press Conference in Jerusalem!

Shakira hugs Shimon Peres, president of Israel, at a joint press conference held on Tuesday (June 21) in Jerusalem, Israel.

The 34-year-old Colombian singer and Unicef Goodwill Ambassador also visited a bilingual school on Tuesday. Shakira met with Israeli and Palestinian children during the day.

During the press conference, Shakira spoke about the importance of education through her charity, The Barefoot Foundation.

“I’m convinced that investing in education is the best solution for global stability and peace,” Shakira said after accepting a traditional Yemeni necklace from a young Israeli girl.

To all the haters here!! wtf is going on with you head?

1.if you say that Shimon Peres is ..whatever,obviously you live on the moon or your head is lost somewhere inside you a$$ – he has a nobel peace prize see here http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/1994/
2.what millions are you sh$%ing about? you have been brain washed kids [you are the kids,yes]
3.bdw , what kids are you talking about? stop spreading the hate! we are talking about terrorists and I have the feeling you support terrorism – am I right?
don’t even bother to type! keep on hating you reality.

You are antisemitic and I understand.Being low life is too painful.I know I wouldn’t wanna be in your shoes.

Shakira is a great artist- she does art and promotes the peace process.

To the WEBMASTERS: how can you allow these comment to be shown here? these people [ok I said people] support terrorism and spread their hatred all over the web.

This is my first time on your great website and I liked it a lot but please don’t allow it to be a low level forum.
Thanks, looking forward for more great posts.
Cheers.

i was waiting for antisemitism flag !!! THERE IT IS !!! OMG get over it i said against israel not jews !! i am so over you guys !! you killed hundreds and hundreds of people and we have to be fine with it because you are … jews ! yes and BTW: you should really get the ral sense of the word “antisemitism” ’cause originally the semits are not the jews but the arabs so i guess you guys are antisemitic
But anyway stop talking about that : the facts talk by themselves and you should really be proud of being part of such a country aparently you’re not any diferent
THE WORST NATION ON EARTH !

@A PROUD ISRAELI: no one hates jews we just hate the stupid country….

I have lost all respect for Shakira – this was the line and she crossed it. She is now an immoral, unethical, sell out, Judas; after all the people who have been murdered the utter GENOCIDE; she has the gall to assume it’s education that is the reason for all the turmoil?! SHAME ON YOU SHAKIRA, you’re half Lebanese how could you do this?! Have you forgotten the 1500 Lebanese people who were killed in 2006 MOST UNDER THE AGE OF 12? You disgusting little old hag of a VIPER; are you that desperate for cash that you would sell your soul so easily? What an utter betrayal; had it not been for her Lebanese/arab blood she wouldn’t be HALF as famous as she is now- after all she’s not known for her voice. I pity the Palestinians for even their neighbors and indeed their cousins ; will forsake them for the devils bounty.

the word SEMIT is came from ARAB JEWS. ISRAEL JEWS ARE FROM CAUCASS , SOUTH OF RUSSIA. YOU SHOUD READ YOUR ANCESTRY ISRAEL PEOPLE BEFORE YOU TREAT PEOPLE OF ANTISEMIT. ANTISEMIT MEANS AGAINST THE ARABIC JEWS NOT ISRAEL JEWS. YOU ARE SO STUPID ISRAEL PEOPLE.

@zephon:

She came solely to speak about childhood education, a topic that she’s passionate about. Regardless of the country, she believes that all children deserve access to high quality education. 15 years ago, she created the Barefoot Foundation, a foundation that has built over 5 schools in her home country, and she has invested money into the foundation to provide the several thousand students attending with free educational and meal scholarships.

She spoke a few months ago at Harvard about the childhood education. She spoke about it a year ago at Oxford. Today’s event was no different.

That you lose respect for her coming to an event to speak about childhood education is baffling. Youtube her actual speech. There’s nothing shameful or immoral about her words or actions.

@Luis: yes Luis, absolutely right! if any of these ignorants up here had gotten SOME education none of this BS was written or spoken.
Little that they know , they are just one little screw in a big propaganda that has no base.
There is no Palestine and there never was.Read some books.
You know what? it’s a waste of time trying to talk like a human being to Al Qaida fans and Hamas.

You guys are so bored.I would say to death!!
since when this is a political debate? we are talking about SHAKIRA here, hello!! listen to her music,listen to what she has to say about the children’s education,the peace between the nations.
Why are you killing each other here? @mandown – be reasonable please
@a proud israeli – you can’t change the world
shake hands and be friends. :)

she’s of lebanese descent shame on you shakira mubarak!

she should have went to lebanon south or asked about how israelis even reached beirut the capital once and occupied it as well before retreating while she was there
