Be the one that restores a person’s faith in people, regardless of how small of an act it might be. All a person needs is a drop of faith to keep them going.
You will find yourself content with life, when you realize you do not need a reason to say “alhamdulilah.” You say it because you’ve made it this far, and that is enough for you to be thankful for.
You do not have to understand someone in order to respect them. People do not always have to explain themselves in order for you to feel like their actions are well meant. They will never owe that to you, or anyone else. You have to learn to trust others, and let God take care of you.
And to be quite honest, we do not care about the Israeli society. We don’t care to humanize or dehumanize them, although the latter is more appropriate. We will never buy into this two-sides two-equal-suffering all-we-want-is-peace bullshit. We don’t want peace with Zionists or with anyone that reaps the profits from a inherently violent jingoistic colonial system.
And this might disappoint you greatly, but we don’t advocate for transitional justice nor do we have the luxury talking about truth and reconciliation when being bombed, fragmented and deprived of our most basic rights. Transitional justice is for white people. We want revenge from the system that stripped us of our humanity.
To the Israeli society in general: Coexistence is not on the agenda. We do not have the time to waste waiting for Israel’s radicals to make a social revolution or convince their society that Zionism sucks. We are not imploring, beseeching, or asking you. We demand an end to the occupation, for you to break out of the prisons you have for minds, and for the love of all things good and holy, end the siege on Gaza."
