It would be remiss of me to continue business as usual and life as usual, ignoring the mass amount of suffering occurring in historic Northeast Africa modernly known as the Middle East. As a small business owner, some might say, “be quiet, keep your head down, discussing this wouldn’t be good for your business, this doesn’t concern you. Well, I’ve never been one (as an adult) to put my head down, and the suffering of humanity anywhere will always be my business. I choose to open my eyes, and do my part as a citizen in the Global Community. I write not only as a concerned citizen in our global community, but I write as a mother who couldn’t imagine the horrors faced by the Palestinians, or the many other groups around the world suffering right now. I couldn’t imagine being at home laughing with my family and all of a sudden a bomb drops on our house, and I find myself the only one left, looking for my loved ones in the rubble. Or having a child be the only one left in our family, and now he or she is orphaned.
My heart goes out to all that have family members that have died, or have been taken hostage in this unfortunate war. I choose to separate Hamas from the Palestinian people, they didn’t do this. I will not ignore the plight of Palestinians for freedom, and the right to exist as human beings. This moment in history precedes October 7th. Palestine has been occupied for over 75 years. Hamas reminded the world of that, and it is unfortunate that it happened in that way. Many of us may be unfamiliar with the word Nakba. So if you truly want to be educated, and not just reactive to corporate media, or post on social media outlets then educate yourself. The annexation, and genocide of Palestinians is no different than what has happened to North America, South America, Hawaiian Islands, and various countries all throughout Africa, especially South Africa, and it’s former apartheid regime. These harsh takeovers have left many longing for an existence that once was, watching their history, and legacies being erased while those with white skin stood to profit, and gain off of the losses of the indigenous people.
I am a diligent, and avid researcher. I am not one that is spoon fed by mass corporate media. I’ve actually been aware of the genocide in Palestine for about 7 years. While I was researching Black History in an effort to help heal my people, I began to find out about a myriad other unpopular hidden truths, that don’t air on corporate stations, and aren’t taught in schools. My stance is for Palestinians to be free once again, living peaceably in their land. What’s happening to them, is no different than what has happened to many groups of color around the world. It’s time out. This is unfortunately white supremacy, no matter how you look at it. Before the decision on creating a state for European Jews in the Middle East, Uganda, and Kenya was once considered. Now that’s one to ponder on.
I will not get into this being a 2000 plus year war, I highly doubt that, and there’s plenty of evidence to prove otherwise as well. It’s extremely odd that a DNA test is illegal in Israel/Palestine. What are they hiding? According to the author Arthur Koeslter, they may be hiding the fact that they are converts and not the real people of the Old Testament, or the Apocrypha. If one were to read the curses of the people who disobeyed The Most High, you could definitely see the vast difference between those claiming rights to The Holy Land, and those that don’t even realize that Deuteronomy 28 is talking about what happened to their ancestors who didn’t obey God. I’ll leave it there. It doesn’t matter what your faith is, do your due diligence and research for yourself. Go beyond the corporate media outlets that don’t always depict the entire picture. Start asking hard questions no matter how ugly, or uncomfortable it is. Delve deep, while you're there find out what the former President of Egypt Gamal Nassar had to say about the people invading Palestine for the creation of Israel. We as an American Society have been groomed to only read what’s whitewashed, sanitized, and overtly omitted from mass media, and in Western History Books. Do your part by choosing to grow.
There are many people speaking out about the injustices occurring in Gaza, and what remains of Palestine. Organizations like If Americans Knew.org, Breaking the Silence, (Testimonies of former Israeli Soldiers) and Eye On Palestine. There are many other sources, but just start with one.
As I’m writing this there’s a ceasefire that I absolutely pray will continue on. It’s sort of strange how Israel was warned that the Hamas attack was coming, obviously it was taken lightly. Let’s keep in mind that the war on Palestinians didn’t begin on October 7th. Thousands of innocent children have been detained, and lives have been changed forever. I find it quite interesting how Israeli hostages are seen waiving to members of Hamas, because they were being treated humanely. It’s extremely sad that Palestinians can’t say the same. Moreover, I hope the people of Palestine can try and rest, and have some ease right now. I hope that they get food, water, and safe shelter. I pray that Palestinians will thrive again, in their own land. I hope that the children of Palestine will be able to obtain the freedom that generations before them did not. I hope Palestinians are able to celebrate their loved ones returning home with full joy, that is not criminalized, or deems them as terrorists for celebrating. May Palestinian joy no longer be delayed.
May there be an end to wickedness, and evil in the world wherever it is… I write this fearlessly, because the fear of man will prove a snare, as It is Written. I write this for the love of humanity. I write this in love. I write this because, Ukraine is no different than Palestine. I write this because I am Human first with a beating heart, then I am Black.
Freedom for Palestine,
