A brother of Palestinian model Bella Hadid, who recently published a host of inciting anti-Israel posts, was allegedly caught in a text message exchange, proclaiming he wants Israelis to be "erased from the planet".
The Washington Free Beacon, an American political website, posted screenshots of private messages between Anwar Hadid and an Israeli woman, seemingly sent via Instagram direct messenger in 2018.
According to the report, Taylor Amrani initiated the July 2018 conversation after Anwar made "really terrible" comments about the IDF and was hoping to "educate" him by providing information from the other side.
Anwar responded to her by saying, "I don't give a f*** to know about the IDF, lady". He added that he wished "them all to be erased from the planet". It's unclear if he was referring to the Jewish state as a whole or Israeli soldiers only.
Hadid also shared with her conspiracy theories about Israel, including that Chaim Weizmann, Israel's first president who died in 1952, remains in charge of the Jewish state.
When Amrani sent him a picture of a 13-year-old Israeli girl who had been stabbed to death in her bedroom by Palestinian terrorists, Hadid dismissed it by saying, "at least she had a home to sleep in."
The 21-year-old male model later appears to have issued a response to Amrani's allegations on his Instagram stories. "Most Israeli citizens at some point are considered IDF soldiers due to mandatory military service. My words are not to be used to generalize Jewish people with IDF soldiers and the horrific acts that some have carried out."
Hadid is dating UK singer Dua Lipa, who in the past wrote that Israelis are "not real Jews" and claimed Hamas was created by Israeli government to justify "occupation, oppression, ethnic cleansing, and murder".
He is represented by IMG Models, which did not respond to a request for comment.
Anwar is a son of Palestinian-American real estate multimillionaire Mohamed Hadid and a brother of models Bella and Gigi Hadid. The family has been campaigning against Israel on their social media accounts since the start of the recent war in Gaza over two weeks ago.
Bella Hadid even posted a video of herself at a Palestinian rally, shouting "from the river to the sea," which is a widely understood call to annihilate the Jewish state.
