Well, it turns out that all the players in the team “Palestine” were actually Jews.
“Bella Hadid posts a photo of the all-Jewish football team in Mandatory Palestine. The folly is unbelievable!” Jerusalem Post columnist Emily Schrader reacted on Monday.
Israeli journalist Yosef Haddad explained that the team was “representing the British mandate” rather than the Palestinian state and pointed to the Hebrew that was written on their jerseys.

“I’m not sure what she’s trying to say … but to this, you can say ‘When you don’t have brains, you don’t care,'” Haddad said.
Last month, Hadid was called out by “real time” host Bill Maher for chanting, “From river to sea, Palestine will be free,” a slogan that has long been interpreted as the abolition of the Jewish state.
“As far as Gaza goes, it’s surprising to me that progressives think they’re being progressive about that side of the world, Bella Hadids, these influential people,” Maher said during a panel discussion. “I just want to say in February this year, a Hamas court ruled that an unmarried woman cannot travel in Gaza without the permission of a male guardian. Really? That’s where the progressives are? Bella Hadid and her friends Aviv will run screaming to Tel Aviv if they have to stay in Gaza for a day.”
