Joshua Broomberg and Saul and Sam Musker had their photo taken at the World Debating Championships in Thailand wearing keffiyehs to show solidarity with Gaza. They received a lot of hate messages after the image was widely shared on social media, including:

I CHALANGE YOU WISE ASS BRATS TO COME LIVE ON KIBBUTZ on the gaza border, its a free holiday, it wont cost you anything and when you have 15 seconds to get shelter i want you to stand up and convinse the enemy that you believe in humanatarian rights and in your opinion it goes against what you believe in. and before you shit yourselves and cry for mommy see how far that argumant is going to get you. A DISGRASE TO OUR BOYS puting their lives on the line to protect us!”
