It is therefore not surprising that the actress spoke out about Israel and Palestine, where the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going on for over a hundred years.

The Palestinians want to create their own state and regain the territory that was once theirs and which still belongs to them under international law.
Susan Sarandon spoke on the conflict between Israel and Palestine, which received wide attention. The 77-year-old compared the situation of Israeli victims of the terrorist attack to the situation of Muslims living in the United States. Sarandon is extremely committed to the cause of the Palestinian people, and her social media channels have been full of content related to this position since the outbreak of the war.
“There are a lot of people afraid of being Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country” – Sarandon said at a pro-Palestinian rally in New York.
