love and warfare

By Dr. Mona El-Farra

"last November when i visited bet ha noun village north of Gaza Strip , straight away after the Israeli army withdrawal , i met families next to their demolished homes , i have met a very interesting 70 years old man , he is a poet ,and was wearing traditional Palestinian costume ,
in front of all of us , and unusual to our traditions and on top of their home rubble , he hugged his wife and started reciting some of his love poetry , i felt speechless, his poetry was about land , love home and resistance.

Palestinian people do not have the spirit of victims , they have the freedom fighters spirits , we fight for noble , just cause ,life will continue , and one day justice and peace will prevail , i can then tell you a lot of humans steadfastness stories , ordinary people stories, whom i have met during my work and they made the Palestinian people struggle against occupation legendary."
