Dr. Mark Ruffalo's apology for social media has suggested that Israel is "committing" genocide "during the recent Palestinian conflict on the Gaza Strip which is gaining momentum and intimidation - highlighting the weakness and weakness of the long-running conflict.
Ruffalo, a clear Emmy Award-winning actor and Oscar nominee, wrote on Twitter that he had "shown and wanted to apologize for postings in recent Israeli / Hamas wars that have called for Israel to commit" genocide "and for" untrue, inflammatory, disrespectful and is used to justify misunderstandings here and abroad. "
The fighting raged for about two weeks this month, leaving hundreds dead, mostly Palestinians, and parts of the poor Gaza Strip reduced to rubble. The ceasefire agreement between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas came on Friday, but the conflict sparked massive protests in support of Israelis and Palestinian supporters around the world.
In the United States, protests have attracted various groups of people, and pro-Palestinian activists want the United States to end its military support, claiming that Biden officials are involved in "war crimes" in the region, and demanding an end to the occupation of Palestinian territories.
Meanwhile, American Jewish organizations have reported a spate of anti-Islamic incidents and seemingly hateful crimes, including synagogues in downtown Chicago and Tucson, Arizona. Jewish people have also been physically and emotionally abused on the streets of Los Angeles, New York and South Florida, leading President Joe Biden on Monday to condemn "hate speech." Mosques have also reported that this is the destruction of Islam this month, with one house of worship in Brooklyn emblazoned with the slogan, "Death in Palestine."

It is unclear which posts Ruffalo apologized for, but suggested on Twitter 11 that Israel's actions were similar to apartheid in South Africa and that sanctions could apply to Israel as well.
"1,500 Palestinians are facing deportation from #Jerusalem. 200 protesters have been injured. Nine children have been killed," he wrote.
While some Twitter users thanked Ruffalo, who previously told The Hollywood Reporter that he had grown up in a Roman Catholic family, for trying to discredit a conversation that revolved around a sensitive issue, others questioned whether he was "intimidated and silent" and "going back."

Several celebrities have faced similar criticism in recent days for expressing their position on the Israeli-Palestinian issue.
Over the weekend, English singer Dua Lipa wrote on Twitter in response to an organization that paid for a full advertisement in The New York Times that rated his public support for Palestinians as haters of Islam. He wrote that the ad used his name "shamelessly" to further their evil campaign with lies and outright falsehoods. "
"I stand with all the oppressed people and I reject all forms of discrimination," he added.
