Bella Hadid Went Straight From A Glamorous Event To A Free Palestine March

'I stand with Palestine.'


Last week, Donald Trump took the decision to formally recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He has done this by formally moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is holy land for both the Muslim, Jewish and Christian faiths, and is therefore contested over by both Palestine and Israel.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has a long, bloody history, whose complexities, many have suggested (including the governments of the UK, France and Germany) are not best solved by a foreign power simply naming Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Since Trump's announcement there have been violent protests in Palestine, Israel and around the world as well as widespread condemnation of the move.



One person who fiercely opposes Trump's decision is model Bella Hadid.

Hadid's own father is a Palestinian immigrant, and she have been vocal about her love of the Muslim faith, her pride in her father's journey to America, and her vehement dislike of Trump's attitude to Muslims, immigrants and the people of Palestine.

On Friday the Victoria's Secret model took to Instagram to voice her concern with the President's statements. She captioned the image, '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. '

Not one to sit on the sidelines, the 21 year-old went to a free Palestine demonstration over the weekend.

Fans praised the young activist for standing up for what she believes in.
