Palestinian Liberation & Islamophobia

“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 

“For us, fear comes where terror comes to others because we are anesthetized to the guns constantly pointed at us. And the terror we have known is something few Westerners ever will. Israeli occupation exposes us very young to the extremes of our emotions, until we cannot feel except in the extreme.” 
Susan Abulhawa

“How much longer is the world willing to endure this spectacle of wanton cruelty?” 
Bertrand Russell  

“I have been to the occupied Palestinian territory, and I have witnessed the racially segregated roads and housing that reminded me so much of the conditions we experienced in South Africa under the racist system of apartheid.”
Desmond Tutu

“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”
Nelson Mandela 

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." 
Malcolm X

“Palestine, where fear of speaking out about one of the greatest injustices in modern history has hobbled, blinkered, muzzled many who know the truth and are in a position to serve it. For despite the abuse and vilification that any outspoken supporter of Palestinian rights and self-determination earns for him or herself, the truth deserves to be spoken.” 
Edward Said  

  “People who call themselves supporters of Israel are actually supporters of its moral degeneration and ultimate destruction.” 
Noam Chomsky

“For if life had taught her anything, it was that healing and peace can begin only with acknowledgment of wrongs committed.” 
Susan Abulhawa

“We are the boat returning to dock. We are the footprints on the northern trail. We are the iron coloring the soil. We cannot be erased” 
Remi Kanazi

  "It is much easier to condemn Islam and 'oppressive Muslim men' than to unpack the intricate relationships between global politics related to empire building and capitalist expansion as well as regional and national struggles revolving around political and economic power and resources.” 
Nadje Al-Ali
