‘I did not fact check’: Supermodel Gigi Hadid apologizes for claiming Israel abducts and [] Palestinians.
Gabe Friedman, JTA
  Nov 29, 2023, 12:21 PM (GMT+2)
Palestinian-American supermodel Gigi Hadid has apologized for writing on Instagram that Israel is the only country that keeps children as prisoners of war and that Israel had abducted, [] and tortured Palestinians for years “before Oct. 7.”

“I shared something that I did not fact check or deeply think about prior to reposting,” Hadid, 28, wrote in a new post on Tuesday to her 79 million Instagram followers. “I was trying to highlight how Palestinian children who are arrested by the IDF are often not given the same rights as an Israeli child accused of the same crime would. Unfortunately, I used the wrong example to make that point and I regret that.”

Her original post included a photo of Ahmed Mansara, who at age 13 in 2015 stabbed a police officer and a 13-year-old boy in East Jerusalem. Hadid also shared a video on her Instagram that claimed Israelis have long harvested the organs of dead Palestinians without their consent.

Hadid and her younger sister Bella, also a famous model, have harshly critiqued Israel in posting about the Israel-Hamas war, which started on Oct. 7 after Hamas attacked parts of southern Israel. But Hadid has also called on activists to keep Jews safe while advocating for Palestinians, and she emphasized that in her apology on Tuesday.

“I also want to reiterate that attacking any human, which of course includes Jewish people, is NEVER OK. Taking innocent people hostage is NEVER OK. Harming someone BECAUSE they are Jewish is NEVER OK,” she wrote.

Jewish music mogul Scooter Braun criticized Hadid for including Mansara in her first post. Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli chimed in, too, calling Mansara a terrorist on Instagram.

“I know people mean well but when you say a child was abducted when it turns out it was a teenager who went out and stabbed two random innocent civilians including a 12 year old on camera and then stated, ‘I wanted to stab Jews.’ Let’s get our facts right before we post to 78 million people,” Braun wrote.

Hadid is one of the world’s most famous models, having appeared on the covers of most top magazines and in top fashion shows around the globe. Her high profile makes her one of the most prominent critics of Israel in pop culture.

Her father Mohamed Hadid, a well-known luxury real estate developer in Los Angeles, was born in Nazareth, Israel. His family fled to Lebanon during Israel’s 1948 war for independence.

How the Palestinian Authority feels about Hamas, from the donkey’s mouth:

https://twitter.com/GlobalRabbi/status/1733856678393585758

This is why the PA can never be a party to peace talks, and why they can’t be put in charge of Gaza “the day after”.

Turkish lawmaker's heart stops as he criticizes Israel during Parliament session
Hasan Bitmez, deputy head of Turkey's Islamist Saadet (Felicity) Party, accused Israel of 'crimes against humanity' and 'ethnic cleansing' of Palestinians, and said his government 'has contributed to every bomb dropped by Israel'

Marcy Oster|18:15

The deputy head of Turkey's Islamist Saadet (Felicity) Party collapsed at the podium of the Turkish Parliament on Tuesday while he was criticizing the government's policy on Israel's war against Hamas in Gaza. 


Hasan Bitmez accused the government of having "endless love for Israel, and said that "the government has contributed to every bomb dropped by Israel."
He also accused Israel of "crimes against humanity" and "ethnic cleansing" of Palestinians.

"Even if history remains silent, the truth will not remain silent. They think that if they get rid of us, there will be no problem. However, if you get rid of us, you will not be able to escape the torment of conscience. Even if you escape the torment of history, you will not be able to escape the wrath of God," Bitmez said, quoting from a poem by Turkish writer Sezai Karakoç, immediately before collapsing while addressing the Parliament.
Bitmez, 53, hit his head on the marble floor of the General Assembly hall when he passed out.
Bitmez's heart reportedly stopped in the Parliament, but was restarted with medical intrervention. The Turkish lawmaker, who is diabetic, later received two stents in arteries in his heart after an angiography at a local hospital, the BBC in Turkish reported.
Lawmakers from the Justice and Development (AK) Party, a self-described conservative-democratic party which is led by Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, blamed Bitmez's health problem on "God's wrath," according to minutes of the Parliament session reported by the BBC.
Turkey condemned Israeli civilian deaths caused by Hamas's October 7 terror attack in southern Israel, in which 1,400 Israeli infants, children and civilians were murdered. But days later Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Hamas Palestinian "freedom fighters". He also criticized some Western nations for their unconditional support of Israel.

Erdogan has accused Israel of committing "war crimes" in the Gaza Strip since the start of its war against Hamas.
"Israel has been openly committing war crimes for 22 days, but the Western leaders cannot even call on Israel for a cease-fire, let alone react to it," Erdogan told a massive crowd of hundreds of thousands of pro-Palestinian supporters on October 28.
His address was seen as an attempt to strengthen his political base, which has Islamist leanings, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Turkey's secular republic.

"We will tell the whole world that Israel is a war criminal. We are making preparations for this. We will declare Israel a war criminal," he said. In his speech, Erdogan also repeated that Hamas was not a terrorist organization, describing Israel as an occupier.

Over the weekend, Erdogan called the United Nations Security Council the "Israel protection and defense council,” after the United States vetoed a cease-fire resolution which failed to condemn Hamas’s October 7 massacre in southern Israel.
Prior to the Gaza war, ties between Israel and Turkey had been warming, with President Isaac Herzog visiting Turkey to meet with Erdogan in March 2022and the announcement in August of that year that Israel and Turkey would restore full diplomatic ties and return ambassadors to each other's country.

Israel is finally taking a page from Hamas’ book and no longer willing to recognize Hamas…

Israel should do more to encourage Kurdish statehood. The ones against it are anti Israel (and anti Human rights) anyways.

The author of the post below is far from a friend of Israel, posting this here because he’s telling the truth about what’s going on on the Palestinian side that would be an obstacle to any form of progress:

Uh huh... right.

So are they pro or against “occupation”?

But seriously speaking, this is a good thing, one more thing working against involving the PA in the plans for “the day after” in Gaza.

Don’t even know where to post this. This shooter is psycho and probably not solely motivated by the situation in Gaza. This incident could’ve ended MUCH worse than it did.

CNN news alert
News Alert: Biden to issue executive order targeting violent Israeli settlers in the West Bank

President Joe Biden plans to issue an executive order targeting violent Israeli settlers in the West Bank whom he has said have undermined stability in the area, according to a US official.

The new directive, expected to be announced Thursday, will impose sanctions on several individuals accused of having participated in the violent acts.

Biden has condemned these acts of violence in the past, and the issue is one that the president has personally discussed in recent months with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
