For Malala Yusafzai

For Malala Yousafzai

 

at fourteen she has

so much to live for

but surely not

a bullet in her head

 

to show the cowardice

of those who can not

stand up and face

a girl of fourteen

 

because her stand

in their face

makes them afraid

of an idea that she represents

 

and which may

cast doubts among

the professed guardians

of a religion to which…

These are the chilling words of Kareem Khan, a Pakistani journalist from a tribe in Northern Waziristan, whose compound was destroyed by a…

From Palestine to Pakistan..Connecting the dots

My friends and family have gradually gotten used to the fact that the fight for Palestinian rights is my passion; they may not understand it totally, but they accept and even embrace it. A few have even occasionally asked me why I don’t just move to the Gaza Strip, where I have increasingly returned since 2009. (The answer, in part: I also want to be a part of my daughters’ lives.) 

But when I announced that I am joining a CodePink …
