Malaysian pop singer Kaka Azraff advocated for the destruction of Israel and voiced support for Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in a threatening message she sent earlier this month to pro-Israel Australian actor and Instagram influencer Nathaniel Buzolic.
Azraff’s message was first exposed in a screenshot shared on Instagram this week by Buzolic in collaboration with the nonprofit organization Jew Hate Database.
The organization told The Algemeiner that on Nov. 6, Azraff — who is signed with Warner Music Malaysia and also a mother and an actress — replied to an Instagram Story uploaded by Buzolic, in which he spoke to the camera about the coming one-month anniversary of Hamas’ Oct. 7 massacre across southern Israel. In the clip, Buzolic was with survivors of the Hamas atrocities, in which the Palestinian terror group murdered 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and kidnapped 240 others as hostages, taking them back to Gaza.
Azraff replied to Buzolic’s Instagram Story by saying, “Because Israel was the one who started [the war]. Israel steal their land and now act like they’re the victim? Wtf [What the f—k]. Sick people. Hitler should just kill all Israel! F—king fa—ot!”

Buzolic, who is Christian, did not respond to Azraff’s comments.
The former Vampire Diaries actor returned home this week after spending a month in Israel, where he hoped to expose the truth about the situation amid rampant misinformation being spread as the Jewish state waged a military campaign against Hamas in Gaza, the enclave ruled by the terror group. Buzolic said in late October that he wanted to be in Israel “in light of all the hate that is being spread about this nation, to show the world the truth and the reality and what’s actually happening on the ground.”
Returning home this week, he said on Wednesday: “I have seen some of the most tragic things I will probably ever see in my lifetime. I have seen people mourn and I have seen so much pain in one nation, so many lies about one nation … I’m really not looking forward to going back to a world that denies Israel’s right to exist. I’m really, really not.”
Azraff has previously been featured on a billboard in New York City’s Times Square and has posted on social media about her partnerships with Fendi, Dior Beauty, Bobbi Brown, Nespresso, and Yves Saint Laurent, among others.
Since the start of the Israel-Hamas war, Azraff has uploaded several posts on Instagram about the conflict, condemning Israel and promoting the Palestinian cause in Gaza. In one post from Nov. 6 she wrote in the caption” “Israel = terrorist.” In other posts she has included the hashtags for “Free Palestine” and “Stop genocide.” One video that the pop singer shared on Oct. 27 featured far right conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles saying on his TruNews web channel: “Israeli Zionists are lunatics. They’re absolute demon possessed lunatics. They’ve got a bloodlust that can’t be satisfied.”

IDF Chief Weighs in on Ultra-Orthodox Military Service, Week After New Draft Bill Proposed
IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi called on the ultra-Orthodox public to mobilize for the current and future wars, a position at odds with their historic role in the state, in which they enjoy near blanket exemptions from military service.
“In these challenging days, there is one thing that is very clear: Everyone should mobilize for the defense of the homeland,” Halevi said.
He added: “This is a different era, and what was before it will certainly be re-examined. The IDF has always sought to bring into its ranks from all sections of Israeli society. This war illustrates the need to change. Join the service, protect the homeland. We have a historic opportunity to expand the sources of recruitment for the IDF at a time when the necessity is very high. We will know how to create the right solutions and conditions for any population that will join this noble mission.”
The issue of ultra-Orthodox enlistment in the IDF has been a hot button issue since the state’s establishment in 1948 and, in more recent years, the cause of wide scale backlash against the community. As part of an agreement when the state was founded, the ultra-Orthodox public was exempted completely from service. However, as the years progressed and the population grew exponentially, critics of the policy decried the unfairness of it.
A bill last week was introduced by the ruling Likud Party that called for an increase in military service time, particularly for reserve forces, yet failed to discuss the ultra-Orthodox issue. Backlash from both opposition and coalition members was swift.
Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich at the time said, “The ultra-Orthodox public is dear and loved and contributes a lot to the State of Israel, and it is now essential that it also take a more significant part in the tasks of defense and security. This move should happen out of dialogue and discussion and not by coercion or, God forbid, by defamation. Religious Zionism proves that it is possible to combine Torah study and observance of minor and severe mitzvot together with military service at the front. My ultra-Orthodox brothers, we need you!”
Halevi’s comments were his first on the highly contentious issue.
