Bella Hadid Speaks Against Trump’s Choice to Move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem
Bella Hadid is speaking out in support of Palestine after Donald Trump’s last-minute move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which has already resulted in violence between Israeli and Palestine citizens.
“I’ve been waiting to put this into perfect words but I realized there is no perfect way to speak of something so unjust,” she said to Vogue Arabia’s September issue. “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.”
She continued: “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.”
