Bella Hadid has refused to stop talking about Palestine when Israeli police attacked Muslims at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The supermodel used her Instagram account to highlight Israeli brutalities against Palestinians at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Bella shared a video of an Israeli policeman torturing a boy and a man and wrote a long note to record her protest.
This is what she wrote:
“I urge you to watch every single one of these videos. Whether it’s a 12-year-old boy being suffocated by a grown man, or a mother of 6 running with her hands up and being shot by the military. An old man on crutches , unable to defend himself, being thrown to the ground. A boy and his father terrified for no reason.
Please someone tell me which of these people caused this type of attack. If you are trying to find an excuse, the problem is you.
If you really want to silence me, just like journalists, or really anyone trying to educate about Palestine, @instagram, I will continue to move forward with peace, showing factual information about how the IDF, Israeli government and settlers attack innocents. Palestinians for no reason, except for the simple fact of being Palestinian.
All of this is a violation of human rights, and if they continue to sanction us, it is the greatest form of bias and unfair censorship.
I’m not here to make this up. Trust me, I don’t want to have to post this kind of horror. These are not actors. These are real IDF soldiers (who they are supposed to protect) and real Palestinians, with lives, families, jobs, history, and souls. If you want me to stop drinking, they should stop killing.
The excuse I hear the most is “the Palestinians. they were asking for it” I hear, “they had a knife. That was the reason the soldiers started attacking.”
Absolutely not. As you can see here, these are peaceful people, most of the time with their children, praying, or just…living. Sure, there may be extremists on both sides. (Like anywhere in the world) But I will not continue to sit here and have my people’s names smeared as if they are constantly doing something wrong to deserve this kind of abuse. Absolutely UNPROVOKE abuse. In their home, and in their land, where they have lived for hundreds of years. Especially now, during the holy month of Ramadan.
This is unprovoked.”
