Simon Cowell has been bombarded with sickening messages on over a donation he made to a fund for Israeli soldiers.

The X Factor boss handed $150,000 (£88,000) to the Friends of the Israel Defence Forces (Fidf) at a fundraising gala in Beverly Hills, California last year (13).

However, the conflict in the Middle East erupted again this month (Jul14) and several protesters on Twitter have since sent the music mogul hate-filled messages and gruesome photographs of victims of the fighting.

One user told Cowell, "You have blood on ur (your) hands" and another posted a photo of a father holding his dead baby, alongside the message, "U (you) donated money to Israel to do this. Now imagine this was ur (your) child."

Fidf was founded by Holocaust survivors in 1981 and provides support for Israeli soldiers.
