Gaza Gaza Gaza... I have no words to express my grief. The pictures speak it all.

How can little children be terrorists? What danger do babies pose to your bloodthirsty reign? Are you following the footsteps of  Firaun and killing them before they grow big enough to question your misdeeds? And the media portrays Israelis seeking shelter from Hamaz rockets! Really!!! Do any of them show an injured Israeli pet even, let alone children?

And you Arab leaders! You sheikhs of UAE and Saudi Arabia! You filthy hypocrites! Where is your sense of right and wrong now? You were at the forefront to "relieve" Egypt of the "undemocratic" rule of Mursi. What is happening in Gaza isn't just anti-people, it's anti-human! Have you gone blind now? Why don't you do something? What do you have armies for? Go help Gaza! Can't you see children-- children!-- being slaughtered? These could be your kids too! Remember that your comforts aren't eternal. Your palaces too will crumble!

Remember, your indifference will never be forgiven. If you choose to remain silent today, you will have no words when your Lord asks you about them.

How time flies! Now I'm a mother.

I wouldn't say 'if only you were here'- no, it isn't befitting a Muslim. But at times when I exchange new-mom worries with my friends-- my baby sucks her thumb all the time, has your son started rolling on to his stomach yet, does your little one sleep through the night, does she laugh and play, and so on-- I sometimes wonder how it would have been between us.  I believe it was the thought of the once-potential now-impossible grandchild that made your mother's eyes well up when she came to see my baby. We still miss you.

In sha Allah, I will introduce you to my son from Jannah, when Allah unite us all.
