‘Proud Muslim’ Bella Hadid has branded President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as ‘absurd, unfair and one-sided’.
The supermodel, 21, took to her Instagram page to condemn the ‘unjust’ announcement, writing that seeing the news made her ‘cry for the many many generations of Palestine’ and her own family.
Bella’s father, real estate mogul Mohamed Hadid, 69, was born in Nazareth and lived in both Syria and Lebanon before immigrating to the US aged just 14.
‘I’ve been waiting to put this into perfect words but I realized there is no perfect way to speak of something so unjust.
‘A very very sad day. Watching the news and seeing the pain of the Palestinian people makes me cry for the many many generations of Palestine. ‘Seeing the sadness of my father, cousins, and Palestinian family that are feeling for our Palestinian ancestors makes this even harder to write.
‘Jerusalem is home of all religions. For this to happen, I feel, makes us take 5 steps back making it harder to live in a world of peace. The TREATMENT of the Palestinian people is unfair, one-sided and should not be tolerated. I stand with Palestine.
