The People of Palestine

From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.

Through the silence of onlookers,

And the silence of their tears,

Through the pounding of your heart

And bombs dropping everywhere.

Through the cries of loved ones far

And the loss of those near

The world has failed you miserably,

We sit in comfort while you live in fear.

Though you live every moment, afraid to be alive.

Know that there are those around the world, whose hearts for you will cry.

And prayers unconditionally will be flying your way,

Patience is the rope to hold till it’s time for their punishment to be paid.

Because when His wrath arises, the villains will feel no safety as a people gone astray.

And we will stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine until that fateful Day.


The state of affairs occurring right now is disgusting. Point black horrific. To kill innocents, to try and take what is not yours, to terrorise and ruin lives. And in such a summary, barely any of the horror of what is occurring in Palestine right now is truly depicted. And yet, those in power, those with the potential to make a difference are choosing not to- and even worse, are fuelling the horror that Israel is unleashing on Palestine.

We have to do all that we can. Whether that be prayer, educating yourself, sharing what you learn, donating, protesting, signing petitions. We cannot sit in silence. We cannot sit blindly while the people of Palestine are wiped away.

"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu.

You do not have to be a politician to take a stance on what is going on in Palestine. You do not even have to know the origins of the situation. You just need to be human. Only those with no humanity can look over and see defenceless men, women and children being killed and evicted from their homes and think nothing of it. We cannot become desensitised. Violence and terror should not be the norm. And it is up to us to continue making as much noise as possible to change the fact that it has become so. We cannot be silent.

People are preparing for their deaths- they are readying themselves to die, to be killed. That is not normal. Across the world, while we go to sleep comfortable in our beds, safe and warm. There are people across the world, children across the world aware that in the morning, they could no longer be. Yet there are people continuing to believe that Israel are the victims.

The only solace that the people of Palestine, and us as their supporters, can perceive is that the Israeli war criminals and their sympathisers will get what is coming to them. They will face the wrath of the One who can unleash the most painful of punishments. We must remember that He is watching. He is watching and He is waiting. While the criminals lay comfortably in their beds at night, they must know that He is watching. They will get what is coming to them. The people of Palestine return to Him, to a place of peace, at the hands of the criminals. Their return (the criminals) will not be so peaceful.

"And never think that Allah is unaware of what the oppressors do. He only delays for them a Day when eyes will stare in fear and horror"- Quran, 14:42.

Remember that though we can do all we can, we are not single handedly responsible for making a change. We cannot burden ourselves with the responsibility of changing the disastrous state of affairs. However, that doesn't mean we should give up. We still have the power to make change, no matter how little. We have to do something. Whatever you can do is valuable. If we all stand together and do what we can there is a difference that can be made.

"Your voice is powerful. Your posts are powerful. Boycotting is powerful. Using hashtags is powerful. Your work is so important. I know you may feel helpless at times, but your work is not in vain." - Doctor Nahla.

The people of Palestine will be free. We have been given the power to make a difference. The media can no longer silence us because we can be stronger. Use your voice, use your social media and everything that we have- because we have the power to make a difference. We will feel helpless, like we can't do enough but remember that every little action is a step closer. And most importantly, we must remember that we have God on our side. If you have seen the videos and pictures you will notice that in many there are citizens of Palestine smiling. Why? Because they know that they are blessed- they have God on their side, something that the Israeli's will never have.

"Israel! You have been fighting for Palestine for about 60 years now, using advanced weapons and America's financial aid against a country that has no army, no weapons, no money and no central government. And you still haven't managed to win. When will you get it? You can't beat a country that is protected by Allah." - Dr Bilal Phillips.

From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.
