Palestine-American model Bella Hadid, who has been a staunch activist when it comes to Israel’s atrocities in Palestine has once again urged people to condemn the ongoing unrest at the Al Aqsa Mosque during the month of Ramadan.
The supermodel has previously shared that Instagram had restricted her posts and shadow-banned her when she tries to highlight Israel’s unprovoked violence against Palestinians on her account. Now, she has posted a new post, sharing several videos from Al Aqsa Mosque raid.
Hadid posted a series of videos of atrocities committed against Palestinians by the Israeli military and urged her followers to “watch every one of them.” She then posed a question: “Which one of these people provoked this kind of attack?” The purpose was to prove that innocent people are being “terrorised for absolutely zero reason.”

“If you really would like to silence me, just like the journalists, or really anyone trying to educate about Palestine, Instagram, I will continue to come forward with peace, showing factual information about how the IDF, Israeli government, and settlers attack innocent Palestinians for no reason, except for simply being Palestinian,” she wrote.
Hadid then added, “This is all a breach of human rights, and if you continue to sensor us, is the biggest form of bias and Unjust censorship. I am not here to make this up. Believe me, I do not want to have to post this kind of terror. These are not actors. These are real IDF soldiers (who are supposed to protect) and real Palestinian people, with lives, families, jobs, history and souls. If you want me to stop talking, they should stop killing.”
Hadid commented that the “excuse I hear most is “the Palestinians. they were asking for it” I hear, “they had a knife. That was the reason the soldiers started to attack.”
She further shared, “Absolutely not. As you can see here, these are peaceful people, most of the time with their children, praying, or just … living. Sure, there can be extremists on both sides. (As anywhere in the world) But I will not continue to sit here and have my people’s names be slandered as if they are constantly doing something wrong to deserve this kind of abuse. Absolutely unprovoked abuse. In their home, and on the land, that they have lived in for hundreds of years. Especially now, during the holy month of Ramadan.” Hadid concluded, “This is unprovoked.”
In a separate post, the famous model, while sharing more videos of Israel’s brutality in Jerusalem, penned, “How many army units does it take to arrest a child? How many times does a young strong military man, with guns, bulletproof vests and power, have to kick down their elder, to feel more powerful? How many babies and children have to be murdered by a government system before people start to care?”

Sharing how her father was kicked out of his home in 1948 when he was 9-days-old, Hadid added, “This is not about religion. This is not about me hating something or someone else. I never have and never will. To me, This is about every single human being and what they deserve in life. To the Israeli government, This is about geopolitics and power. Who benefits from war and violence? The answer is never the people. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
