Social media users talked this week about the arrest of Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi; Dior replacing Palestinian Bella Hadid with Israeli model and Angelina Jolie supporting Palestinians.
Out of fake post, Israeli Forces arrested Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi
Israeli Forces arrested the Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi on suspicion of inciting violence, but her mother denied this accusing, saying that they arrested her out of fake post on Instagram.
The Israeli army announced that it arrested the 22-year-activist in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. Since 2017, the residents of the West Bank considered her a heroine as she slapped an Israeli soldier, raiding her village when she was 16.
More than 10 Israeli soldiers broke out the house at night and arrested Tamimi, Tamimi’s mother said.
She added in an interview “Israel accused her of writing a post, inciting killing citizens, and Ahed doesn’t have an Instagram account”.
Israeli media outlets published a photo of an Instagram post carrying the name of Ahed, and it contains a threat of slaughtering Israeli citizens in the West Bank.
Dior replaced Palestinian Bella Hadid with Israeli model
Palestinian-origin Bella Hadid recently faced challenges due to her support for his homeland. She asserted that she received killing threats, but she won’t stay silent concerning the outrageous actions occurred in Palestine.
Shamefully, Dior has replaced Hadid with another Israeli model as a brand ambassador. It’s worth mentioning that she posted a bold statement on Instagram, starting with “ forgive me for my silence”.
Angelina Jolie supports Palestinians, her father criticises her
Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie was keen on talking about the outrageous situation in Gaza on her Instagram account. She posted a long post in which she called for the necessity of ceasefire and entering the humanitarian aids to Gaza.
“This is the deliberate bombing of a trapped population who have nowhere to flee. Gaza has been an open-air prison for nearly two decades and is fast becoming a mass grave, by refusing to demand a humanitarian ceasefire and blocking the UN Security Council from imposing one on both parties , world leaders are complicit in these crimes.”
Jolie said that she paid a visit to the Gaza Strip before, and she knew the extent of people’s suffering in Gaza . As a result, the entry of the humanitarian aids is crucial.
While Jolie feels sorry for Palestinians, her father, Jon Voight, fully supports Israel, criticising her post. In a video on his X account, formerly known as Twitter, he appeared with the US’s flag behind him, saying “I am very disappointed that my daughter, like so many, has no understanding of God’s honour, God’s truths”.
He also described Hamas as terrorists and animals, and they are trying to commit genocide against Jews and Christians. He ended the video by saying “and you considered Israel the problem.”
