I can’t believe I saw this with my own two eyes today during the march for Palestine. A Palestinian BDS flag unfurled from the Manhattan bridge, this is seriously amazing. These are not my photos and they’re being reposted by everyone on fb so idk who to give credit for =/

Alaa was urgently transferred from Gaza to Jerusalem for treatment but doctors are deeply concerned about her recovery were Alaa to find out about the fate of her mother whom she continuous to ask about. Alaa had been told that her mother is receiving medical care in Egypt but she will soon be told the devastating truth.
After a while , she was told that her pregnant mother, and her 3 -year old brother were killed in Rafah Massacre.
This sensitive girl is seeing every picture and I’m reading every message you sent for her.. she smiles, she tears and wants to read more. What do you want to tell Alaa ? (Tarek Bakri talking who started the campaign)
Your message to Alaa cannot make up for her loss but it can provide her with the support she will need when she finds out what really happened.
"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin
