World famous Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, who has graced the pages of Sports Illustrated and endless high fashion magazines like Vogue, Marie Claire and Glamour, has been showing her support on her Instagram feed for Isreali Defense Forces since the ground invasion of Gaza started nearly a week ago. The captions on her photos didn't embed, so I have included them in quotes above each one.
"This made me very excited! Our soldiers.. Thank you! Please be careful and come back home safe ?? #stopterror"
Since her initial post above, 32 IDF soldiers have been killed.
"These days are so difficult to bare. Brave young men who have protected our country from terror. My heart goes out to their families. They will always be remembered and respected #RIP"
Before the ground offensive to take out Hamas rockets and tunnels into Israel began last week, Refaeli posted about the three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped and killed by terrorists.
"Gil-ad, Eyal & Naftaly you are in our hearts. Hoping for your safe return ?????? #bringourboysback"
"3 good souls. murdered brutally by Hammas. #stopterror May they r.i.p."
Naturally, she's receiving an insane amount of hate as a result. Here's a few of the comments. For more visit her page.
In an age when mindless celebrities are supporting Hamas, a terrorist group, and posting "free Gaza" on their social media pages, Refaeli's unwavering support for her country's actions, self defense and stopping terror is refreshing.
