Israeli Government Slams Gigi Hadid Over Alleged Antisemitic Meme, Questions Her Awareness

1 Mins read

Supermodel Gigi Hadid faces backlash from the Israeli government for her Instagram post expressing support for the Palestinian people. Hadid, whose father is Palestinian real-estate developer Mohamed Hadid, shared a graphic on her Instagram story stating, “There is nothing Jewish about the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians.” She added that condemning the Israeli government is not antisemitic, and supporting Palestinians is not supporting Hamas.

In response, Israel’s government posted on their Instagram story, stating, “There is nothing valiant about Hamas’ massacre of Israelis. 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 Israeli government addressed Hadid directly, asking if she had been “sleeping the past week” or turning “a blind eye to Jewish babies being butchered in their homes.” They accused her of maintaining silence on the issue.

The conflict in the Middle East, triggered by an Iran-backed Palestinian terror attack, has escalated, resulting in the loss of lives on both sides. Hadid has made several statements on social media that appear to equate the actions of the Israeli government and the Israeli army with those of pro-Palestinian extremists. Her posts have not explicitly condemned the actions of Hamas, nor have they addressed antisemitism directly.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has sparked a range of sentiments, with some pro-Palestinian activists celebrating the actions of Hamas. Palestinian activists argue that the recent terror attack was a step toward decolonization. Hadid’s younger sister, Bella Hadid, has also expressed strong support for the Palestinian cause in the past, but she has not yet commented on the recent events.

Their brother, Anwar Hadid, has produced a documentary highlighting the Palestinian resistance. The Hadid family has maintained a strong connection to their Palestinian heritage, with their father, Mohamed Hadid, emphasizing the importance of understanding and revering their Palestinian identities.

The recent conflict has resulted in a significant loss of life on both sides, with the Gazan Ministry of Health reporting a death toll exceeding 2,300 Palestinians. Israel has reported that 258 of its soldiers have been killed. The situation remains a complex and sensitive issue with global repercussions.
