Home sweet home

At last-we've made it through. We left at 6am, and by later afternoon
were in Gaza City. But we were a only a handful of thousands- I
estimated 5000- still stranded and unable to get through to Gaza, or out
of Gaza. All of Rafah's roads have been blocked off by the sheer number
of people trying to get out. More tomorrow plus some pictures..

Raising Yousuf, Unplugged: diary of a Palestinian mother

I am a Palestinian journalist who divides her time between Gaza and the United States, where Yousuf's father, a Palestinian refugee denied his right of return to Palestine, and thus OUR right as a family to live together, resides. This blog is about the trials of raising our son between Gaza and the US, while working as a journalist, and everything that entails from potty training to border crossings. Together, we endure a lot, and the personal becomes political. This is our story.


Massacre in Gaza: I remained silent, for I was not Palestinian

"Withdrawing" implies, in whatever vague and euphemistic sense, an end, or at least, a waning of hoslities. But today I woke to discover that the Israeli Army has perpetrated a massacre on a scale unseen in Gaza for a long time: so far, 22 dead: Eight children; seven women. All members of the same family. Please imagine 22 members of YOUR family, dead, in one fell swoop, and that the deaths are brushed aside as unfortunate mistakes from an otherwise morally superior, well-intentioned army. There can BE NO good intentions deriving from an Army ordered to fire heavy-grade artillery shells within 100 metres of civlian areas. None.
