Coldplay Sparks Palestinian Debate On Facebook

Coldplay called on fans to go check out a new “Freedom for Palestine” single, and since the controversial post went up yesterday, comments have erupted into a debate over the band’s political stance.

One Israeli posted:
are you serious!@?!?# Israel is doing it’s best to create peace and until you wont live in israel you dont have the right to say anything. our country is democratic and we dont kill people from no reason!!! theyre attacing us! what should we do?!!! to let them kill us?? coldplay, shame on you.
A Palestinian supporter wrote:
VIctoria, the vast majority of arab are being ABUSED!!!!
the kleptocratic people occupying the government of those countries do not speak for the majority.
In israel the majority agree with the occupation of palestine, hence the israelis are the oppresers and the arabs are not!
Of course, the comments are also littered with hate speech. Clearly, this is a controversial topic and I’m sure Coldplay knew this when posting the link to the band’s page.
The volume of comments is increasing, with people posting updates every second. While I’m not sure what will bring an end to the postings I doubt it will last as long as the actual debate.
Interestingly enough, Coldplay’s Facebook page continues to be gaining fans with more than 13.35 million as of right now.
My guess is that very little will come out of the conversation, but it’s interesting to see how heated the debate can become on a band’s Facebook page. As usual, both sides are calling on others to go and post comments on the page as though that’s going to make a dramatic difference. Even the YouTube videos have a large number of likes and dislikes.

  1. hey all admin discovered your site via yahoo but it was hard to find and I see you could have more visitors because there are not so many comments yet. I have found site which offer to dramatically increase traffic to your website they claim they managed to get close to 1000 visitors/day using their services you could also get lot more targeted traffic from search engines as you have now. I used their services and got significantly more visitors to my website. Hope this helps :) They offer most cost effective backlink service Take care. Jason
