For anyone who wants a simple proof that Palestine existed before 1948, here’s a coin from 1927 worth 10 Mils (this currency is no longer used). Also note that the word “Palestine” is written in both Arabic and Hebrew indicating not only a Jewish presence, but a prominent one. Jews and Arabs DID live side by side in peace. The Zionist idea that they cannot coexist is an absolute fallacy.
Fresh from killing 17 Palestinian journalists in Gaza last year, Benjamin Netanyahu will attend the Je Suis Charlie rally in Paris today to demonstrate his unwavering commitment to freedom of the press.
My dear friend and acclaimed reporter, Ayman Mohyeldien, has been ordered by NBC News management to cease reporting in Gaza and leave the territory for his co-correspondent Richard Engel.
You’re asking why this matters?
Ayman Mohyeldien reported from Gaza what no other foreign media correspondent would show. He reported on the humanitarian crisis within Gaza; the unsanitary conditions, the countless dying and dead children, the failing infrastructure within Gaza, and the things that we didn’t see in Gaza until he was able to show us…to show America. To understand his impact, one should only observe his Instagram account (@AymanM). He’s the only MSM reporter who’s showing the true brutality that’s occurring in Gaza.
Is it because he’s telling the honest truth, or is it because he’s a person of color? After all, they did replace him with a blonde, white guy.
Bring back Ayman, and let’s see some unbiased reporting; because you can’t talk about jailed reporters in Egypt when you have your own reporters completely shutting their voices on the air.
As you prepare your breakfast, think of others,
Do not forget to feed the birds.
As you wage your wars, think of others,
Do not forget those who are fighting for peace.
As you pay your water bill, think of others,
Do not forget those who have only the cloud’s to drink from.
As you return home, to your home, think of others,
Do not forget the refugees (“people of the tents”).
As you lay to sleep and count the stars, think of others,
Do not forget those who have no space to dream.
As you express yourself in metaphor, think of others,
Do not forget those who have lost the right to speak.
As you think of others far away, think of yourself,
Say: If only I were a candle in the dark.
