After American President Donald Trump made the decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, many individuals, organizations, and countries made their opposition clear. The move sparked outrage across the world and people voiced their anger in different ways!
?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. There is no hate against anyone… There are no sides… All religions living side by side.. Now it is Just one man..it has always been a factor of trying to bring peace… Where is the hope..?
Supermodel Bella Hadid posted a photo of Jerusalem two days after Trump’s ruling, writing, “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 the home of all religions. For this to happen, I feel, makes us take five steps back making it harder to live in a world of peace.”
However, the Palestinian/American model didn’t just protest on her Instagram account, as she was spotted yesterday in a protest outside the US embassy in London. Hadid has been vocal against a number of Trump’s policies, including his initial travel ban in January, when she took the streets of New York in a march with her sister Gigi Hadid.
