An untold story

Went through my newsfeed on Facebook and saw something. That something made me tear up. It broke me.

How can such things happen in the 21st century? How can such things happen and no one tries to stop them? Where the hell is humanity? Where’s the UN? What is the international community doing? Why are they closing their eyes on these poor people?

What if these things happened to you? To your children? To your family? How can you stay quiet?

Turkish Ambassador commemorates Mavi Marmara victims in Gaza

Beautiful.. Free Palestine!

Today In Gaza

Gaza Seaport today Gaza Seaport today

Turkey and Palestinians stood together today to honour the ten Turks murdered by Israel aboard the Mavi Marmara aid ship headed for Gaza four years ago.

On the same day the Palestinian unity government is to be announced, Gaza-based Palestinian NGO House of Wisdom brought all factions together with Turkish Ambassador Mustafa Sarnic and Turkish aid agency IHH, owners of the Mavi Marmara, in a show of not only Palestinian, but Ummah unity.

The commemorative events began at Gaza seaport beneath the memorial erected in honour of Cengiz Akyüz (42), Ali Haydar Bengi (39), İbrahim Bilgen (61), Furkan Doğan (18), Cevdet Kılıçlar (38), Cengiz Songür (47), Çetin Topçuoğlu (54), Fahri Yaldız (43), Necdet Yıldırım (32) and Ugur Süleyman Söylemez, who died from his injuries this week aged 51.

Rachel Corrie’s 5th Grade Speech

Remembering Rachel Corrie, who in this childhood video, gave such an inspiring 5th Grade Speech, then went on to LIVE by her altruistic ideals.
On March 16, 2003, Rachel was brutally run over and crushed to death by an IOF CaTerrorPillar bulldozer while seeking to protect her friends home, with whom she had lived in Gaza, from demolition.
The bulldozer then REVERSED back over her.
Her family’s Quest for Justice for this senseless killing continues to THIS DAY.

Protect Lawyers Fighting for Prisoner Rights in Palestine

 

I recently joined a group on Facebook, ‘WE ARE ALL PALESTINE 2’, so I’ve been updated with many petitions and many actions that have been going on inside Palestine and outside too.

Been reading a lot about the imprisonment of Shireen and Shadi Issawi and I’ve came across this petition.

Therefore, if you believe in a #FreePalestine and not only, if you just believe in humanity, please do sign this petition.

 

Free Shireen and Shadi Issawi! Free Palestine!

 

 

 

 

What I’ve been doing in the last period

 

I know I’ve been away for a while, but I was not absent in this ‘activist life’ if so to say (lol). Our faculty is divided into 3 parts, the English group, the French and the Romanian one. I’m studying in English, so I’m obviously part of the English one. We (about 5-6 people max.) have developed a website (blog) where we write different articles. My part is ‘The Middle East Weekly Review’ and today is one month since I started writing for the blog.

I will be posting the links to the articles and I promise to be updating this blog as much as possible, with those articles and not only, new things as well. It’s just that I’m having finals soon, so I’m pretty much eating the books (haha) but as soon as summer’s here.. I’ll be writing a lot, other than just me spending time with my friends as I’m going to TRNC (Turkish Republic of North Cyprus) to visit my fiance, then to Antalya, Turkey to see my best friend and for the rest of the holiday (more specifically 2 months and half) I’ll be home, in Kuwait. Woop woop!

So here we go:

 

1st article (29th April):

Middle East Weekly Review: Fatah and Hamas sign a reconciliation agreement

 

2nd article (6th May): 

The Middle East Weekly Review: Egypt can still surprise

 

3rd article (14th May):

The Middle East Weekly Review: Out of Homs. What now?

 

4th article (21st May):

The Middle East Weekly Review: Iran’s involvement in the Syrian Civil War; Choosing the Lesser of Two Evil

 

I have to state, that I tried to be as objective as I could. However, this cannot be fully possible as I have my own feelings and my own personal opinions and I tend to publicise them. Hope it was good. Hope you will like them.. and thanks for keeping up with my blog.

God bless you!
