What are Kerem Bürsin views of the war against Palestine?

Since October 7, 2023, the entire world has been watching the Palestinian-Israeli war launched this time by Hamas Organization under the name ‘Al-Aqsa Flood’ as a result of more than 7 decades of oppression and colonization.

And during the current Palestinian-Israeli conflict, several Arab and and international stars have voiced their solidarity to Palestine, however, Turkish and Arab fans are still waiting for their favorite Turkish stars to speak up and lend their voices to Palestinians as usually do.

So far, and after a thorough research, Turkey’s A-listers are keeping their silence amid the deadly war announced against Palestine, and Turkish actor Kerem Bürsin is one of them.

Fans of Turkish actor Kerem Bürsin started circulating an old interview of him while criticizing western media for broadcasting biased coverage of the previous war.

Kerem said: “The events of Israel and Palestine were not used by anyone there. I mean, I don’t know when was the last time they detonated a bomb. And the news came out like this: Hundreds of Palestinians died and probably seven Israelis. All the news in America talked about Israel, but no one talked about Palestine.”
