MUSJID-UL-AQSA - Heart of the Conflict

Guest contributor, Saajidah Malvina looks at the sacred Masjid at the deep heart of the attacks on Gaza, Al-Aqsa

Last weeks attacks on Gaza saw the heaviest barrage of rockets from the apartheid state of Israel since 2012. Gaza Palestinians killed by Israel since early 2014 as a result of military escalation has increased to 18. Palestinian medical sources have reported that a two-year-old child Mohammad Ismael al-Hamadin died of serious injuries suffered in an explosion that took place in Beit Hanoun, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday evening, March 11, 2014. Two other civilians were murdered. In the meantime Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner, IDF spokesman, said in a statement: "This retaliation was precise and prompt. We targeted the infrastructure that serves the terrorists while they train, plan and implement their hideous attacks. They will not be permitted to conspire in the safety of their terrorist temples." read more

As at (17/03/2014)



Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Giving up
Was how we handled our problems.
Working hard
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn't come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around

Even with a thousand games, dolls and crafts to choose from, my customer at the toy store still couldn't find a thing for her grandson.

"Maybe a video or something educational?" I asked.

"No, that's not it," she said.

We wandered the aisles until something caught her eye: a laser gun with flashing lights and 15 different high-pitched sounds.

"This is perfect," she said, beaming. "My daughter-in-law will hate it."
