“I have faced intimidation from various sources trying to silence me. I ask myself, why do they want me to be silent? I’m talking about innocent people being hurt,” she shared. “I am not anti-Semitic. I am not against any people. I stand against that.” Huda emphasized her belief that the Israeli government is putting the Jewish people in harm’s way and accused them of using people as “human shields” while misattributing actions to Palestinians.

“I’ve always believed that the Israeli government uses their religion and their people as human shields. I’ve always believed that they deflect and project everything that they do onto the Palestinian people,” declared Huda. She highlighted the ongoing revolution, fueled by increased awareness and education, stating, “Nothing will undo this.”

Detailing her experience of facing threats and opposition, Huda underscored the importance of hope while advocating for an end to oppression. “I have been getting threats on my business every which way. I don’t know where things are gonna go. But we have to remember, we cannot be afraid to lose anything.”

Addressing those attempting to intimidate her, the beauty guru concluded, “You’re coming to the wrong person. I will not be intimidated. I’ve done nothing wrong. I’m speaking on behalf of humanity.”
