In record numbers

by

With Israel carrying out some of the deadliest bombings in Palestine over the past week, the world refuses to be silent. And for the first time, even some of the world’s biggest celebrities are speaking out in support of Palestinians. 

Among them is of course model Bella Hadid, who has continuously voiced her support for her father’s native country over the years. The supermodel took to her Instagram over the week to express where she stood on the matter. But she’s not alone.

Hadid was joined in support by other celebrities, among them poet and rapper Moustafa The Poet who joined Bella’s brother Anwar Hadid on a trip to Palestine a few years prior. 

My time In Palestine taught me that effective genocide and colonialism is a patient, calculated effort. It’s sometimes subtle. It takes precision, they weave it into the fabric of stolen land, you create enough buffer so your people can mask the truth too, so they may justify its happening to themselves,” he wrote. 

On Sunday, Paris Hilton also spoke out. In a now deleted tweet, the American heiress and reality television star shared a Guardian article, writing: “This is so heartbreaking. This needs to stop! #SavePalestine #GazaUnderAttack #stopthegenocide.”

British singer Dua Lipa also took to her social media platforms, sharing the #SaveSheikhJarrah hashtag to her Instagram stories on Saturday to her 66 million followers. 

American actor Mark Ruffalo shared a petition on Twitter calling for sanctions on Israel in support of Palestinians. Other celebrities who spoke out include Viola Davis, Chance the Rapper, Zendaya, Seth Rogan, and Kehlani. 

Meanwhile, Rihanna faced criticism for an Instagram post in which she expressed support for Israelis. “My heart is breaking with the violence I’m seeing displayed between Israel and Palestine. I can’t bear to see it! Innocent Israeli and Palestinian children are hiding in bomb shelters,” it reads.
