Vanessa Perelman, chief designer of the popular Spanish clothing brand ZARA, sparked hate after she made hateful comments against Palestinians in a conversation with a Palestinian model, the latter of which later revealed the conversation on social media.
During the conversation, Perelman defended Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, blamed the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip whom she called terrorists, and attacked the Islamic faith.
The beginning came when Vanessa Perelman made controversial hate comments in a letter responding to the pro-Palestine posts by Palestinian model from occupied East Jerusalem Qaher Harhash.
Ignoring Israeli air strikes last month during a brutal bombing campaign that killed more than 250 Palestinians – including 67 children – in the besieged Gaza Strip, Perelman wrote to Harhash, “Perhaps if your people were educated, they wouldn’t blow up the hospitals and schools that Israel paid for in Gaza.” .
“The Israelis do not teach children to hate, and they do not throw stones at soldiers as your people do,” Perelman said.
