Justin Bieber’s trip to Israel is off to a shaky start. Not only are photographers driving him crazy (“You would think paparazzi would have some respect in holy places. All I wanted was the chance to walk where jesus did here in isreal [sic.],” he tweeted Tuesday) but Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu canceled a meeting after the pop star refused to meet with kids involved in a school bus bombing, reports Haaretz. The children, who live near the Gaza border, were getting off the bus last week when it was hit by a rocket; one teen was critically wounded. Netanyahu’s aides invited the group to attend Wednesday’s get-together with the singer, but the PM called it off after Bieber balked: “whether its the paps or being pulled into politics its been frustrating,” he wrote in another tweet.
