Hadid children inherited much of their Dutch-American mother's face and all of their racist Arab father's heart

Mohamed Anwar Hadid, that real estate tycoon in Calofornia Arab Jordanian who vilified distorted re Israel abusing emotions post George Floyd's death who married Dutch-American. His daughters Gigi and Bella and Dua Kupa who dates his son all seem to have inherited much of their Dutch Nerixan mother's face but all of their father's racist heart.


"Beware of A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing—Mohamed Hadid's Polemic on His Palestine", Ilana K. Levinsky, TOI, June 11, 2020.

...it showed a caricature of an IDF soldier pressing against a Palestinian man's neck while embracing an American cop who's choking a black man with his knee.

That image was the impetus for learning more about the man behind the post, perhaps to understand his motivation for publishing the type of material that does nothing to promote peace and dialogue but instead, it fixates on historical revisionism that ascribes to Israel the world's afflictions and fuels the nakba (catastrophe) narrative. It portrays Israel as a colonialist entity, an apartheid state, and Israelis into persona non-grata worldwide. The story of the Palestinian refugees and their right of return has a unique way of enlisting the most ardent of activists who embrace an all-or-nothing approach, and their hostility is especially selective – their main focus is castigating Israel and with the help of academics, students, and celebrities the lines are blurred between mainstream and extreme opinions. What is going on here? Is it really all about moral outrage over Israel's existence?... He likes to vilify Israel just as much as he enjoys building grotesquely opulent mansions for the rich and famous. He may even like the former a little more than the latter. Also, he has a lot of followers, around one million, so do his children who are often featured in his posts...

Evidence to the Contrary.

Unfortunately, there were also plenty of homegrown Jewish-Palestinian cigarette companies that produced tobacco at the time, but for the purpose of debunking Hadid they have been very useful. What do you know "Palestine" was also printed on Hebrew ads that promoted tobacco or cigarettes for public consumption. Let there be no mistake before 1914 there were perhaps half a million inhabitants in the region. Palestine was an underdeveloped backwater – part of the Ottoman Empire and the Arabs had no autonomous political or administrative status. Among the diverse population of the land, there were also Jews, descendants of an old Jewish community that had survived there for centuries. Jews of Safed, in particular, had an almost undisturbed presence since the time of the Maccabees. But Safed had reached its zenith during the 15th century when many Jews, including illustrious scholars, had arrived after the Spanish Inquisition. Generally, their lives were miserable; they were dhimmis, second class subjects, and over the years their numbers had dwindled due to expulsions, murderous riots, and systemic oppression that kept them destitute for centuries. When Napoleon Bonaparte was in Palestine, in 1799, he noticed the disparaging treatment of Jews. He published a proclamation that also appeared in the French Moniteur newspaper whereby he recognized the Jews' unique position of being ousted from their own country, and for thousands of years they were subjected to foreign rule that deprived them of their land. But their name and national identity remained intact. There were many similar accounts from travelers across Palestine:

"On the way to prayer at the Western Wall of Herod's Temple, Jews drew the spite and malice of the resident Arabs, who deliberately scattered broken glass along their path. The Wall itself (the most sacred spot of Judaism) was fouled up with urine and feces, a dumping ground for garbage and sewage" (Robert S. Wistrich, A Lethal Obsession Anti-Semitism from Antiquity to the Global Jihad, p. 690).

Historian David Landes said the following about the Jews of Palestine:

"Their condition in pre-Zionist Holy Land (and in Islamic lands in general) was comparable to that of Blacks in the post-Reconstruction American South" (Robert S. Wistrich, A Lethal Obsession Anti-Semitism from Antiquity to the Global Jihad, p. 690).

Palestinians blame Zionism for the deteriorating relations between Arabs and Jews in the region. But Arabs and Jews have always had a patchy history; you go as far back to Maimonides' Epistle to Yemen (written in 1172) and find this:

"Remember, my coreligionists . . . the Arabs, who have persecuted us severely, and passed baneful and discriminatory legislation against us . . . Never did a nation molest, degrade, debase, and hate us as much as they" (Hillel Hallkin, Yehudah Halevi, P. 295).


"The Total Collapse of Jewish and Israeli PR."

You would think that the choice here between good and evil would be stark and direct and the world would stand with Israel. But precisely the opposite has occurred.

By R. Shmuley Boteach, JJ, May 20, 2021.

Take the example of Mohamed Hadid, the multi-millionaire father of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid, all of whom are vilifying Israel with gusto to their tens of millions of followers on Instagram. Last week Mohamed actually wrote, "No one should be allowed to erase a race... you can't close your eyes... the Pope did in WW1 and WW!! And the rest of the world stood by silently...."

This is the ultimate blood libel, falsely accusing Israel, the only free society in the Middle East, of genocide. Hadid shockingly compared the Holocaust of six million Jews to Israel fighting back against Hamas rockets intent on murdering children. It takes incredible audacity to accuse the Jews of pursuing a genocide against the Palestinians, and this antisemitic blood libel about the Jewish people should be rejected by all people who value truth and human rights.

Instead, the blood libel is spreading.

Mohamed's daughters, Bella and Gigi, joined by the singer Dua Lipa (purportedly dating their brother), have become an unholy trinity of Hamas terror-splaining It-girls engaged in the outright demonization of Israel and the Jewish people.

Speaking to their nearly one hundred million followers on social media, they have vilified the Jewish State with an all-consuming hatred.

They accuse Israel — a nation built in large part by Holocaust survivors — of ethnic cleansing, even as millions of Jews in Israel descend from refugees savagely forced out of every Arab land. They condemn Israel for the military checkpoints that were erected only after 700 innocent Israeli Jews and Arabs were blown to bits by suicide bombers on buses and cafés, many of them sent by Hamas. They call Israel an apartheid state, even as it is the only country in world history to airlift Africans into freedom and sets the standard for multi-racial and multi-cultural coexistence, with millions of Christians, Muslims and Jews living side by side as doctors, teachers and soldiers.

If Bella, Gigi, and Dua cared about Palestinians, they'd condemn Hamas and demand it stop its use of Palestinian children as human shields, cease its murders of LGBTQ Palestinians and reverse their denial of the Palestinian people's right to elections after fourteen autocratic years. But those demands don't fit into a campaign that's solely about hating and defaming Jews.

Worst of all, in defending the Hamas terrorists, Bella, Gigi and Dua make themselves apologists for the genocidal aspirations of Hamas, whose charter calls for the murder of Jews "wherever they are found." Hamas seeks nothing less than a second Holocaust: 1,800 shrapnel-packed rockets should be more than enough to prove they mean it.


"For the information of the Hadid sisters and their liberal friends: You have a responsibility to the harming of Jews."
Natasha Kirtziuk-Gutman, Ynet, May 25, 2021

Gigi and Bella Hadid have three times more followers than the total Jewish population in the world as of 2021, and when they spread their Fake News and increase antisemitism in the world - for some reason, everyone is silent. And if you were wondering what about the Palestinians - you just proved that this is not the conflict that interests you, because what is the connection between it - and beatings that a Jew gets in New York
