Now What?Nahida Izzat Salem-News.com
Palestinians did not give up before, and they have no intention to give up now.
(LONDON) - We've just witnessed the warm embrace given to Palestine by the entire decent world, excluding of courses those who chose the side of evil, throwing themselves in an obscene disgrace, slaves at the feet of the "chosen".
Such memorable event might not change much on the ground, however, one cannot dismiss its huge significance, that event is a signal indicating shifting of power worldwide.
WORLD GET READY
Palestinians did not give up before, and they have no intention to give up now. They will continue to pursue the course of JUSTICE and LIBERATION by ALL MEANS the deem necessary and appropriate.
A PALESTINIAN QUOTE from
مركز أحرار لدراسات الأسرى
النسخة الفيسبوكية لمركز احرار لدراسات الاسرى وحقوق الانسان تحت اشراف الاستاذ فؤاد الخفش الباحث المختص ومدير مركز احرار لدراسات الاسرى
Don’t call me a Palestinian of the Palestinian Territories because it is called Palestine.
Don’t give me a fraction of my homeland and call it a solution.
Don’t give me oppression and call it peace.
Don’t give me a Bantustan and call it a home.
Don’t give me a prison and call it freedom.
Don’t draw the borders of my existence according to your whims and interests and call it a state.
My home is not a disfigured result of a till-death-do-us-part-marriage between the occupier and the champions of negotiators-for-life that yields a Bantustan on 20% of my homeland.
My home is not a “lets legitimize the Zionist racist colonization of Palestine and hope they accept us and allow us to live with them one day” tale for the sake of fame and a shoulder pat from “conditional-supporters”, while giving the Zionist usurpers a right to my land which they stole and continue to colonize… a right to my home which they destroyed and continue to destroy…. a right to my village which they ethnically cleansed and continue to do so to the rest of Palestine… a right to Palestine, the Palestine they raped and continue to rape for over 63 years, a rape they are proud of and celebrate very year while denying us even the tears and the memories and the names of the victims they massacred and the villages they erased.
My Palestine is the home that is mine since the dawn of history till the end of history.
My Palestine is the home of my ancestors, the home between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River.
“To smile when confronted with the most severe oppression, is an act of Resistance rooted in unparalleled beauty.”
~ Jonathan Azaziah"And I, a Palestinian from occupied Palestine, refuse to share
my homeland with Zionist colonizers"
~ Reham Alhelsi
"Facts" do NOT need laws to enforce, validate or defend them, what they require is research to examine their narrative and correct it for better accuracy and understanding.
“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”
Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.
She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles, and Palestine the True Story.
Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.
