Op Saterdag, die Vogue-voorbladmeisie het 'n verklaring op Instagram Stories geplaas wat deur Anna Rajagopal geskryf is, wat 'n beroep op mense doen om twee keer te dink voordat hulle oor anti-Semitisme plaas.
“No one is saying you have to be silent on antisemitism, but before you post about antisemitism during this time ask yourself: Am I linking this to Palestinian liberation as a whole? Will people be able to use this to delegitimize the Palestinian struggle?” read the statement, as quoted by U.K.’s DailyMail.
“Why am I posting this right now?” the post continued. “Palestinian liberation leaders, advocates and activists have made it clear that antisemitism is never welcome in the movement for freedom for Palestine,” die berig bygevoeg.
Volgens die afsetpunt, users quickly slammed the star.
“You know nothing about Israel about Palestinians or about Jews,” het een gebruiker geskryf, as quoted by the outlet. “Stay out of our affairs if you aren’t going to educate yourself.”
“Get it through your head, anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism,” chimed another. “You use your platform to divide. Dis walglik, you should be ashamed.”
The outlet also reported that one user told the model to “stop spreading lies.”
“We don’t tell you what racism is,” read one comment, as quoted by the outlet. “Don’t tell us what anti-Semitism is.”
A rep for the 29-year-old did not return Fox News’ request for comment.
Vroeër vandeesmaand, Bella Hadid joined a protest in New York City in support of Palestinians.
The supermodel took to Instagram and shared a collection of photos and videos showing her walking down the streets of Bay Ridge in Brooklyn with demonstrators while holding a Palestinian flag.
“The way my heart feels … To be around this many beautiful, slim, respectful, liefdevol, kind and generous Palestinians all in one place … it feels whole! We are a rare breed!!” die model, whose father, Mohamed Hadid, is of Palestinian descent, het die pos onderskrif.
“It’s free Palestine til Palestine is free!!!” the 24-year-old added.
Her presence at the demonstration came hours after she shared a different post on Instagram of her grandparents on their wedding day in 1941, along with an image of her father as a child next to his seven siblings and their mom. The star noted that the siblings were “taken out of their homes in Palestine in 1948, becoming refugees in Syria, then Lebanon, then Tunisia.”
“I love my family, I love my Heritage, I love Palestine,” sy het geskryf.
The dual posts also came hours after another post Hadid shared drew accusations of anti-Semitism. That post was highly critical of Israel, calling it a land settled by colonizers that practice “ethnic cleansing, military occupation and apartheid over the Palestinian people.”
Many Instagram users pointed out inaccuracies in Hadid’s posts, with some accusing her of perpetuating anti-Semitic tropes.
Representatives for Hadid did not respond to Fox News’ versoek om kommentaar.
Voorheen, the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas launched a barrage of rocks into Israel, gerig op Jerusalem, southern Israel and Tel Aviv. Israel responded with a series of airstrikes, killing a top Hamas commander and several other senior Hamas militants.
