Here I was born. In Gaza, Palestine.
I’m a 22-year Palestinian who after witnessing a 23-day War felt obliged to talk about the injustice done to our people who for the last 62 year have been witnessing an immense brutality and a vigorous attempts of ethnic cleansing by means of displacements, massacres, and war.
I did survive a war after which ”kids still go to schools, doctors and nurses still take care of their patients, men and women go to their to work, organizations have their meetings and people continue to live which seems to be an offence to all those Israeli extremist who simply want all Palestinians either in prison or driven away completely. The military solution which they have tried hasn’t worked at all and never will work”. Palestinians will continue to survive.
In quest for freedom, equality, and life, I write. For the love of the land, I write. With a faith in humanity, I would still write.
“Remember the solidarity shown to Palestine here and everywhere… and remember also that there is a cause to which many people have committed themselves, difficulties and terrible obstacles notwithstanding. Why? Because it is a just cause, a noble ideal, a moral quest for equality and human rights.”Edward Said.
