Supermodel Gigi Hadid has taken a firm stance on the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. Addressing the situation, Gigi Hadid slams terrorizing of innocent people post Hamas attack. In her remarks, Hadid emphasizes empathy for the Palestinians while denouncing any harm towards Jewish individuals. As tensions rise, celebrities like Hadid are using their platforms to shed light on the situation and express their standpoints.
Hadid, who boasts a significant following on Instagram, used the platform to articulate her views. “My thoughts are with all those affected by this unjustifiable tragedy and every day that innocent lives are taken by this conflict – too many of which are children,” she remarked. Delving deeper into her ancestral roots, she mentioned, “I have deep empathy and heartbreak for the Palestinian struggle and life under occupation, it’s a responsibility I hold daily.”
She also highlighted the significance of ensuring the safety of Jewish individuals, stating:
While I have hopes and dreams for Palestinians, none of them include the harm of a Jewish person. The terrorizing of innocent people is not in alignment with and does not do any good for the ‘Free Palestine’ movement.- Gigi Hadid
In her post, she urged for the respect of basic human rights, commenting:
There are a lot of complex, personal and valid feelings, but every human deserves basic rights, treatment and security; no matter their nationality, religion, ethnicity or where they were born. I know my words will never be enough or heal the deep wounds of so many, but I pray for the safety of innocent lives, always.- Gigi Hadid
Hadid's sentiments on the matter don't stand alone. Many celebrities and politicians have voiced their concerns over the recent tensions.
Former President Barack Obama was particularly vocal, condemning Hamas' activities. “All Americans should be horrified and outraged by the brazen terrorist attacks on Israel and the slaughter of innocent civilians,”
Obama declared in a recent statement.
We grieve for those who died, pray for the safe return of those who’ve been held hostage, and stand squarely alongside our ally, Israel, as it dismantles Hamas.- Former President Barack Obama
Gigi's father, Mohamed Hadid, expressed his views, attributing the “massive escalation between the occupied and the occupier” to the Israeli government. Making his stance crystal clear, he said, ‘To Be Clear I condemn the killing and hostage-taking or abusing, torturing of civilians. Of Arabs Muslims, Jews or Christians.”
Gigi and Bella Hadid are no strangers to advocating for the Palestinian cause. While Gigi has been clear in her recent statements, Bella has remained silent on the latest developments. However, both sisters have historically been vocal about Palestinian liberation.
As the situation evolves, the world watches closely, hoping for a resolution that ensures the safety and security of all involved.
The Israel-Hamas conflict has elicited reactions from global figures, including celebrities like Gigi Hadid. Their statements emphasize a call for peace, human rights, and empathy for all affected. As tensions persist, the shared desire is for a resolution that safeguards the well-being of every individual, regardless of nationality or background.
