Bella Hadid Joins ‘Free Palestine’ Protest Outside American Embassy

Bella Hadid got involved with a Pro-Palestinian demonstration opposing President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Hadid was outside the American Embassy Friday in London in the middle of an active protest.  The picketers held signs reading “Free Palestine” and “End Israeli Occupation.”

Just one day earlier, the Victoria’s Secret supermodel posted an Instagram message expressing solidarity with Palestine, and her outrage over the decision to move the U.S. Embassy out of Tel Aviv and into Jerusalem.

Hadid’s father Mohamed is Palestinian, and has been outspoken regarding the move by Trump, which has sparked new unrest between the three faiths that consider Jerusalem sacred ground; Judaism, Islam and Christianity.

💔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..?
