The fact that Israel:

  • has a Ministry of Propaganda (with a minister and everything) which includes 100,000 social media accounts and many bloggers [+]
  • pays students to circulate pro-Israel propaganda online [+]

should tell you all you need to know about pro-Israeli pro-Zionist information that you read on this website.

Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturbed me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower on my balcony. Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. Steal all the flowers. Come back..Just come back..
Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Gaza.  (via nowinexile)

black-korean-jesus asked: my mom recently told me a story from when she was a child in a palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon. The camp was under a 6 month siege, and one day my mom randomly decided to climb onto the roof, and when she finally stood on the roof, a sniper started to fire bullets at her. My mom went into hiding, and hid there for two hours straight, and the sniper eventually left.. :s Nothing happened to her alhamdulillah

hoodjab:

My grandmother was in labor with my aunt, and it was in the middle of a uproar in Palestine. She was in a lot of pain because my aunt was coming out butt first and she was in breech labor. My grandfather was on the other side of town at the moment, and my grandmother couldn’t run anymore while holding my mother and in labor. Bleeding and in unbelievable pain. She fell down in a pile of ruble. A Israeli soldier found her helped her deliver my aunt. My grandmother was bleeding to much and it seemed as though she was going to die in child labor. She convinced the soldier to take my mother and aunt to my grandfather. Two days later my grandmother recovered was found by my grandfather. She went to search for the soldier who helped her…Only to find out that he had been shot by another soldier who had seen him helping her. 

We all have stories. 

Come share with me.
