Written by FDM

Following on the steps of her father,  Palestinian-born American model Bella Hadid also reacted on social media to Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday.  

The supermodel, 21, took to her Instagram page to condemn the ‘unjust’ announcement, writing that seeing the news made her ‘cry for the many many generations of Palestine’ and her own family claiming that this ‘takes us five steps back, making it harder to live in a world of peace’.

💔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… My best friends I call sisters and brothers are Jewish. 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..?

« I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. » With these words, Donald Trump went against the advice of global allies, broke with decades of established American foreign policy and set his nation on the course to be the first in the world to construct an embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.

This announcement has triggered fury around the world. Many personalities from the Middle East and world leaders – including Morocco– have condemned and rejected the decision.

Trump’s dramatic declaration was received with massive protests From Jordan to Turkey. In the West Bank, schools and shops closed, as more than 250,000 Palestinians declared “days of rage” and took to the streets, shouting anti-Trump slogans and setting pictures of the former reality television star on fire.

In related news, Moroccan civil society will hold a protest next Sunday in Rabat. Themed “For Al Quds, with resistance, against all forms of normalization … The march of the Moroccan people,” the march is expected to bring thousands of people in protest.
