Supermodel Bella Hadid goes on showing her support for her Palestinian brothers and sisters; on May 15, Hadid, the daughter of Palestinian Mohamed Hadid, jumped into her verified Instagram account and released a shot captured during 2017 dated Free Palestine Protests.
Alongside the photo in which the well-known fashion mogul is seen holding a placard that is bearing “Free Palestine – End Israeli Occupation,” Hadid added a caption that reads:
“I have a lot to say about this but for now, please read and educate yourself. This is not about religion. This is not about spewing hate on one or the other. This is about Israeli colonization, ethnic cleansing, military occupation, and apartheid over the Palestinian people that has been going on for years!”
Stating that nothing has changed in four years for Palestinians, Hadid then promised that she will protect and support her brothers and sisters as best as she can. After expressing that she feels for them, is crying for them, the 24-year-old continued:
“I wish I could take away your pain. The pain of a father not being able to hug his wife or babies again. Of a mother who has to bury her child before she has the chance to watch them grow. I see you. I hear you. I cry for you. And I am in pain for you.”
The supermodel, who has been using her platform to speak out in solidarity with the people of Palestine, revealed that she has been told her entire life that who she is: A Palestinian woman. She concluded:
“A Palestinian woman – is not real. I’ve been told my father does not have a birthplace if he is from Palestine. And I am here to say. Palestine is very much real and the Palestinian people are here to stay and coexist. As they always have. And we will always come together as a family. Always.”
In addition to her posts she shared through her social media accounts, Hadid took to the streets the other day and was spotted at the protest for Palestine in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
