Pop idols and professional athletes are going public with strong views about Gaza, putting their relations with fans on the line while stirring up a social media frenzy.

More often than not, celebrity sympathies have been leaning in favor of the Palestinians as the Israeli assault on Gaza rolls into its fourth week and the death toll keeps rising.

Zayn Malik of the British boy band One Direction was the latest to voice his concern when he posted "#FreePalestine" on his Twitter account on Sunday.
