One of Israel's biggest success stories in Hollywood was recently the subject of controversy in recent days after online zealots made death threats against her for appearing in a photograph with fellow starlet Selena Gomez.

Odeya Rush, the Haifa-born thespian who has appeared in numerous films and television shows, sat alongside Gomez in Paris for a fashion show put on last week by the popular high-end brand Louis Vuitton.

Gomez was excoriated this past summer during Operation Protective Edge for tweeting her sympathies for Gaza, even though she later backtracked and only claimed that her wish was for "peace for the children of Gaza."

Gomez entered the fray when she posted an Instagram photo picture, “It’s about humanity – pray for Gaza.”
