Back to School: Life in Palestine (3)

For the last post in this installment, I thought I’d forego the verbose commentary and just quote one of my sources verbatim from Tuk’u.

Our fourth day, no school. The man in the photo is the headmaster of the school. The army has detained him for two hours, then they threaten him not to reopen the school again.”

They just shot a little boy and his friends are carrying him away.

Dear Irfan, I am very sorry if I always interrupt you with our problems. But you are always our best friend and our best hope. We are under occupation and this is our destiny, we can’t do anything about that.

He’s wrong about that. It isn’t their destiny. Or ours.
