Reporting from the White House

On Saturday, I actively took part to a protest against the slaughter of children and civilians by the zionist state of Israil.The protest started in front of the White House and went on all the way to the Washington Post and other main landmarks in DC.

As for any war, there were 2 groups. One that was fighting for ideals, for more integrity, more justice and more fairness. For them, the cry of a mother in Gaza was equal to the cry of a mother in the United States, the cry of a child in Gaza was equal to the cry of a child in the US. Injustice is always wrong, occupation is wrong and justice can not be achieved idly. Justice has always been achieved by the men and women who begged to differ from the masses and stood for what their consciences dictated. That was the noble side. Let's not forget that 'civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it -- a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character. Only an ethical movement can rescue us from barbarism, and the ethical comes into existence only in individuals'.
The other side was there for one purpose: they were trying to divert the protesters for justice. Unfortunately for them, they were only about 4 people against thousands. For once, the side for justice and truth was bigger than the evil side.


I almost slapped the man who stopped me in front of the white house, looking at me with desperate sad eyes, he dared to show me an Israeli Newspapers and with a straight face he told me : Israil needs Gaz. I paused for a minute, looked at him and all I could say was : Are you for real?. I couldn't comprehend how a human being could be so evil as to ignore values,truth, justice and every other ideal people fight for. In the end, there were no winners, no losers, just two groups nurtured by the same country, but so different in their values. At the end of the day, each of the participants went home , each bringing with them a sense of accomplishment, or a sense of failure....Failure to step for the right ideals....but who are we to judge?Conscience shouldn't get the best of us.
In any case, there was a big support from people from New York and New Jersey who came with drums and blow horns. The white house heard Israel's name like they never did before. It was associated with genocide, crimes, starvation, ,murder, and corruption. Today, tourists, Americans, or fellow passer bys got to see what Palestine was about. In front of the Washington Post, tens of thousands of people made sure to scream: Washington Post, you did not report us, can you see us now? Washington Post, you did not report us, can you hear us now?

These people had a voice, they had ideals, they wanted the whole world to know that somewhere, in the middle east, zionist were free to kill whomsoever they wanted,zionists were tearing apart what took ages to build, zionists were a terrorist nation. So with them, I shouted: No to genocide, Yes to justice. Not one more penny, not one more dime, no more money to Isreil. I screamed my lungs out, and just like the people at my side, I did not feel the rain, I did not feel the cold, I did not feel the hail, I did not feel hungry or thirsty after 4 hours of marching.... My hope, our hope was that somewhere up in the sky an angel would hear our prayers and passes the message to the Almighty and then maybe then, we will get our reward...And for that, we will keep on protesting!

You can see Orthodox Jews wearing black hats and long beards on this picture. They do not support the zionist state of Israil. They beleive that the very existence of the state of Israil is against the teachings in the Thora as Jewish people were ordered by the God of Humanity not to establish a land anywhere on earth! You can find out more at Jews Against Zionism


You can see snipers on the roof of the white house ready to act if anyone dared to get closer.....


Justice is conscience, not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of humanity. Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize also the voice of justice.




The fundamental rights of humanity are, first: the right of habitation; second, the right to move freely; third, the right to the soil and subsoil, and to the use of it; fourth, the right of freedom of labor and of exchange; fifth, the right to justice; sixth, the right to live within a natural national organization; and seventh, the right to education.It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees.Our people are occupied, resistance is justified!


This child was so engaged, lol. He kept shouting : From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free! La Ilaha Ilala, Muhammadu Rassululah. It was very emotional to watch!

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.

- Let's not forget that 'civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it -- a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character. -

subha'nallah....awesome masha'allah. Many people say there's no point in protests or demonstrations however they DO make an impact.

hijabee said...

Inexplicable Muslima,
Really? U were not able to find it?

Washi,

Yeh that little boy was something :)

Habayeb,
Yes they do make an impact! One of them being to make people aware of what's going on.

Peace will also be attained in the remebrance of Allah. Knowing that those who fought, suffered and died in the Way of Allah will be rewarded immensely; whereas a torturous consequence awaits their oppressors and killers.

Ma'sha'Allah. Shukran for sharing your experience at this wonderful protest. My wife, children and I had done the same last week among a thousand others flooding the streets of downtown Atlanta marching, chanting, raising signs and posters and waving flags and praising Allah. When rain began to come down, wallahi barely even noticed and remained unphased, Alhamdulillah!

Safiyyah said...

As Salaamu Alaikum Dear:

I'm glad you showed the picture of the Orthodox Jews who don't believe in Zionism. More people need to understand this fact. Zionism and Judaism are not the same thing! Take care dear sis!
