Nablusian kids are already under curfew and are soon to be joined by
Palestinian kids from other bantustans due to Purim, the Jewish holiday.
Palestinian kids won't mind a bit as they'll have more time to stay home and read their
In my opinion books are very good, and getting new knolege is great and important, but not to
learn because the zionists are making *another* sieghe.
i have just had a thought about an option,
the i think you um kahlil have decided to take.
in the last few years many palestinianin, also from ramallah, are emigrating from palestine,
to europe, and i do wonder if these sighes are the thing that makes palestinins leave their homes..
i do understand the problematic side of it,
but is it real for me?
making such a step can stop my life, and probobaly make me stop visiting my family.
asad al nimr,
I was making a joke about Palestinian kids reading textbooks since as a teacher I know most kids don't like to read their textbooks yet in the US the politicians must think that Palestinian kids really love to read their textbooks because the reason that politicians always give for kids' hatred of Israel is that their textbooks teach them to hate Israel.
My father immigrated from Ramallah in 1951, Asad.
