The Israeli government has criticized half-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid for her support of the Palestinian cause after the terrorist organization Hamas launched deadly attacks on southern Israel 10 days ago.
‘Have you slept this past week? Or can you just turn a blind eye as Jewish babies are slaughtered in their homes? Your silence has been very clear about where you stand. We see you,” the Israeli government said on Sunday on his official Instagram account with a post showing an apparent image of a bloodied child’s room with toys on the floor, saying: “If you don’t condemn this, your words mean nothing.”
Hadid received a sharp rebuke from the Israeli government following her latest Instagram post that addressed the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza by stating that supporting the Palestinians was not anti-Semitic, nor was supporting Hamas.
“There is nothing Jewish about the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians. Condemning the Israeli government is not anti-Semitic and supporting the Palestinians is not supporting Hamas,” she wrote on her Instagram account.
Israel’s official Instagram account also mocked Hadid’s original post with a mirror image of her meme: “There is nothing courageous about the mass murder of Israelis by Hamas. Condemning Hamas for what it is (ISIS) is not anti-Palestine and supporting Israelis in their fight against barbaric terrorists is the right thing to do.”
The Hollywood Reporter reached out to Hadid’s reps, but she was unavailable to comment on her Instagram post.
The Hamas attacks were followed by Israel declaring formal war on the terrorist group, with escalating retaliation leading to a rising death toll in Gaza, southern Israel and the region. In an earlier Instagram post on October 10, Hadid had condemned attacks on innocent people in the immediate aftermath of the Hamas attacks on Israeli territory.
“Terrorizing innocent people is not aligned with or does any good for the ‘Free Palestine’ movement,” Hadid said in a lengthy post. on her Instagram account. Hadid, whose father, Mohamed Hadid, is a Palestinian immigrant and practicing Muslim, added that she has a “deep empathy and heartbreak for the Palestinian struggle and life under the occupation.”
