Outstanding mannequin and TV character Gigi Hadid, who’s half-Palestinian, has condemned “the terrorizing of innocent people” after the terrorist group Hamas launched assaults on southern Israel.
What did she say?
“While I have hopes and dreams for Palestinians, none of them include the harm of a Jewish person,” Gigi Hadid mentioned in a prolonged Instagram assertion. “The terrorizing of innocent people is not in alignment with & does not do any good for the ‘Free Palestine’ movement.”
Hadid’s father opens up on the battle
Earlier this week, Gigi’s father, Mohamed Hadid, blamed the latest and “massive escalation between the occupied and the occupier” on the Israeli authorities in a daring Instagram put up. A day later, he added, ‘To Be Clear I condemn the killing and hostage-taking or abusing, torturing of civilians. Of Arabs Muslims, Jews or Christians.”
Gigi Hadid’s Palestine connection
Hadid’s father Mohamed Anwar Hadid was born in a Palestinian Muslim household in 1948 in Nazareth to Anwar Mohamed Hadid and his spouse Khairiah Hadid. Her mom is former supermodel-reality star Yolanda Foster, Bella and Gigi Hadid are half-Palestinian and half-Dutch.
Why they needed to depart Palestine?
Because of the Palestine battle (1947-1949), they needed to flee from their state.
Anwar Hadid’s Instagram Submit
It was 2015 when Anwar Hadid shared a put up on Instagram and wrote- “I was only about 18 month old. After we were expelled from our beloved #Palestine into the Syrian refugee camps .. My dad got a brief job at the university of Damascus in #Syria .. This was our family pictures for a Palestinian Refugee Card. The Hadid Family, my beautiful mother Kharia Daher Hadid. My father Anwar Mohamed Hadid. My sisters Ghada, Raida, Sana, and me. Thank you #Syria for taking us in. And thank you America for allowing All of us to realize our dreams …”
How his household turned refugees
A report by Mondoweiss quoted him saying, “Thats how we became refugees to Syria and we lost our home in Safed (city in Northern Israel) to a Jewish family that we sheltered when they were refugees from Poland on the ship that was sailing from country to country and no one would take them… they were our guest for 2 years till they made us refugees and they kicked us out of our own home. That my history.. Strange thing. That I and my family would do it again.”
