For the next three days the whole West Bank will be in siege, meaning more checkpoints and more life supplies limitations, the reason is because Israel will be celebrating a religious holiday!
Jews had lived a holocaust in Germany, they among all should be the most understanding for how cruel and hurtful discrimination is, i read how during the times of Hitler Jews had to wear David star so everyone around would know they are jews, here we have to display IDs to show that we are Palestinians, we are being separated by a wall, assassination is a way to "get rid" of some of those who stand against Israel, massacres is a way to "get rid" of a group of people living on a Palestinian land, destroying houses is a way to build settlements, killing journalists and peace activists is a way of hiding the truth. it is understood that that is apartheid but what i don't understand is how can those who have been through such a suffering would make others live it! i do not understand why no one can say "no" to Israel. today a woman 55 years old died in Gaza after she was not allowed to leave the Strip for treatment, the siege on Gaza is a holocaust, killing people slowly.
these are facts now for us, we can live only with hope of freedom and work for a normal life... which is a dream. we are not tired, generation after another Palestine brings heroes to life and hugs martyrs in it's soil, our peace is a word dying to live.
On May 15, 1948 Palestine was occupied and Israel was born, On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the FIRST article was: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."
the second article was: "Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty." ... i wonder why is this not applied here?
i do not want to seem pessimistic or taking one side, i am only telling what i see. i smile when i see more than 9 million people around the world caring about justice and peace in Palestine, i am hopeful knowing that people like my friend are working to spread truth and help freedom see light. as what it is said; a sorrow shared is a sorrow halved.
