U.S. comedian Sarah Silverman waded into the Arab-Israeli conflict on Thursday after publicizing her support on social media for a 17-year-old Palestinian girl currently detained by Israel security forces. 

Silverman called on the Jewish community to demand that the Israeli government release Ahed Tamimi after she was arrested in mid-December for assaulting an IDF soldier. 

“Jews have to stand up EVEN when — ESPECIALLY when — the wrongdoing is BY Jews/the Israeli government,” Silverman tweeted Thursday.

The incident was caught on camera and posted online on December 15, where the clip quickly turned viral. The video shows Tamimi slapping and kicking the soldier near her West Bank home with little retaliation

The video evoked polarized reactions, with much of the Israeli camp expressing outrage that Tamimi and her cousin were not arrested on the spot, and much of the Palestinian camp cheering her aggressive resistance of what they view as Israeli occupation.

Despite Tamimi’s willingness for a transparent and public trial, the Judea Military Court earlier this week ordered her case to be tried behind closed doors.

The court said it was standard procedure to hold trials involving minors, like Tamimi, out of public view in order to protect those involved who are not yet adults. Tamimi has remained in Israeli custody since her arrest on December 19. 

Silverman, whose sister lives in Israel and is a member of the Women of the Wall movement, retweeted an email campaign launched by Amnesty International following Tamimi’s arrest. 

Amnesty International has called for Tamimi’s immediate release and is urging its supporters to write to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and protest the teenager’s detention. 

“There is nothing Ahed Tamimi has done that can justify the continuing detention of a 17-year-old child,” Amnesty wrote in its electronic appeal.

Speaking to young hopeful Makenzie, who discussed her battle with social anxiety and dyslexia, Bella confessed that she was the opposite to her supermodel sister Gigi’s ‘bubbly’ nature.

‘In this business it’s hard to stay centered, stay inside yourself,’ she began. ‘You’re not alone, I promise you, I’m hear to talk. Believe me I get it, I was totally there.

‘My sister is very bubbly and very out there and I was always very reserved.

Adding: ‘I would literally start crying and shaking if I had to do interviews at red carpet events because it was really nerve-wrecking and it is scary not only.

‘I promise I went through that, it gets better once you start doing it every day, it’s my job I have to do it anyway.’

Later having a one-on-one with Makenzie, the catwalk star revealed that she would ‘blackout’ while walking in runway shows as she battled her social anxiety. 

She shared: ‘That’s exactly how I was for so long, I would literally blackout.’

‘I would come out and be like “Oh well I guess it’s over” you know I had to go through all of that stuff so it’s not only you’. 

Bella has previously been open about her health issues and spoke out about her struggle with Lyme disease.

The brunette beauty was diagnosed with the ailment in 2012 and forced her to give up her dream of being an Olympic equestrian.

‘My teenage years were taken from me,’ she told the gathering for the Global Lyme Alliance Gala, according to People.

Showjumping ‘was my dream of my life and what I did every single day until I just stopped and realized I didn’t have the brain power to ride horses anymore, so that was the end of that,’ she explained.

Bella, whose mother Yolanda and younger brother Anwar have also been diagnosed with Lyme disease.

‘I was forced to start homeschooling my second year of high school, which of course I didn’t want to do because I’d rather go hang out with my friends, go to parties,’ she said during her speech.

‘I know what it feels like to not want to get out of bed from bone pains and exhaustion and days on end of not wanting to socialize or be around people because the anxiety and brain fog just isn’t worth it.’

Bella gave up her equestrian career in 2013 but it wasn’t until two years later that she and her family went public with their health issues.

Despite her illness, Bella like her older sister Gigi has become one of the most sought after models in the fashion world and is managing to pursue her high profile jet-setting career.

Her mother Yolanda’s search for treatment and even a cure were documented on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and via her social media accounts.

Gigi Hadid loves her body.

The 22-year-old model recently revealed that she’s experienced weight fluctuations because she has Hashimoto’s disease, which causes thyroid damage, but the blonde beauty says she has still grown to appreciate her figure.

She shared: “I’ve loved my body when I was just diagnosed and I loved [it] going through it and I love my body now.”
The American star believes women should love their bodies, irrespective of their size.

She told E! News: “It’s just about everyone accepting their body as it matures and knowing that it’s not always going to look the same and you can love yourself in all different sizes.”

Gigi is also pleased that she’s been able to connect with her fans who suffer from the same condition.

She explained: “I think it’s good to be honest. I’ve talked about my experience with Hashimoto’s but a lot of people can connect with it.”

Gigi recently discussed her experiences of Hashimoto’s disease, revealing on her Twitter account that it’s the reason why her body has changed shape over the years.

She wrote on the micro-blogging website: “For those of you so determined to come up w why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started @ 17 I was not yet diagnosed w/Hashimoto’s disease; those of u who called me “too big for the industry” were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that.

“Over the last few years I’ve been properly medicated to help symptoms including those, as well as extreme fatigue, metabolism issues, body’s ability to retain heat, etc … I was also part of a holistic medical trial that helped my thyroid levels balance out.

“Although stress & excessive travel can also affect the body, I have always eaten the same, my body just handles it differently now that my health is better. I may be “too skinny” for u, honestly this skinny isn’t what I want to be, but I feel healthier internally and (cont)

They rocketed to fame as Hollywood offspring, but now boast impressive portfolios of globally-renowned modelling work, despite having only just hit their twenties.

And Gigi and Bella Hadid showed just what has landed them contracts with the world’s biggest fashion houses as they posed in a sizzling photoshoot for British Vogue.

Gigi, 22, and Bella, 21, proved just how powerful they were as a sister act, posing naked in a black and white shoot for the high fashion black and white cover.

Making the most of their long and lean limbs, the statuesque beauties are seen entwined in the risque shoot, offering a glimpse of their enviable proportions.

While Gigi sports her blonde hair in loose wet waves, Bella contrasts her sister with her raven hair- a feature she opted to dye in order to distinguish herself from her elder sibling as she carved out her own successful career.

But both sisters sport the same chiselled bone structure, full pouts and stunning emerald-coloured eyes, unmistakable in the stunning photoshoot.

Additionally both sisters have landed their own colour cover, posing in the same asymmetric gold top.

Opting for minimal make-up and accentuating her green eyes with a light dusting of gold eyeshadow, Gigi can be seen throwing her head back as she smoulders at the camera.

Meanwhile Bella faces the camera face-on, her dark hair contrasting her bright eyes and dewy complexion.

Speaking to Vogue during the shoot, Gigi revealed her protective streak of sister Bella, who is just 18 months younger than her.

Recalling looking into her sister’s cot when she was just a tot, the blonde beauty admitted: ‘She’s one of the only people I’ll get aggressive for. She makes me so proud. I would do anything for her.’

Yolanda herself was a model, before joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which offered a glimpse into the jaw-droppingly lavish home the family grew up in.

Gigi has been dating British former One Direction star Zayn Malik for over two years, but remains relatively private over their romance.

Meanwhile Bella split from former beau The Weeknd in late 2015, and was left heartbroken when he quickly moved on to Selena Gomez.

However the duo were seen together late last year, following his split from the singer.

In recent weeks Bella has reportedly been spending time with Los Angeles Lakers point guard Jordan Clarkson.

Bella Hadid handled a nip slip like a pro at Haute Couture Week in Paris.

The 21-year-old American model appeared to ignore the wardrobe malfunction while walking the runway at the Alexandre Vauthier show Tuesday.

Hadid, who wore a black bustier bodysuit, teal wrap and embellished sunglasses to close Vauthier’s show, kept walking with part of her left nipple exposed to the crowd. She didn’t mention the incident in a later post.

“Thank you for letting me close another one of your beautiful shows @alexandrevauthier You know how much I love you!!! Forever,” the star captioned a photo of her look.

Hadid wore a completely sheer top at an Alexandre Vauthier show in July, according to MTV U.K. She suffered a double nip slip while walking the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November.

Palestinian-American model Bella Hadid took Paris Men’s Fashion Week by storm as she walked the streets in a variety of fashion-forward outfits and rubbed shoulders with Hollywood stars such as Josh Harnett and Robert Pattinson.

The model joined Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, sporting a chic new beard, and Hollywood star Robert Pattinson on the front row at the Dior Homme show on Saturday and promptly made headlines with her razor-sharp black suit and peek-a-boo lingerie.

The brunette powerhouse, 21, who was in Paris as the face of Dior Beauty, wore a pair of the label’s new squidgy trainers, Dior Homme Runners, which The Guardian newspaper lauded as part of the high-end brand’s attempt to woo the millennial market.
However, the popular model, who is regularly seen with the likes of Kardashian family member Kendall Jenner, did make a rare fashion faux pas, according to some international media outlets.

At the Heron Preston’s winter 2018/19 show, she wore a mesh bodysuit and oversized 1980s power suit with a pair of white sneakers and long-length socks in what turned out to be a rather odd mix-and-match outfit.

Hadid shared her approval of the Dior show, with designer Kris Van Assche at the helm, with her 16 million Instagram followers, saying “seriously stunned to see your work move in real life, Kris. Thank you for having me. Big, big honor.”

Paris Men’s Fashion Week wrapped up on Sunday and followed an intense flurry of men’s fashion weeks across the globe, from London to Milan. Next up on the fashion agenda is New York Men’s Fashion Week, which is slated to begin in early February.
