thank you mohammed asad, i am sending this link to my friend in the UK, she is from gaza and i am sure she’s missing home right now.

Great pictures; let’s spread them around on US social media as antidote to mainstream media’s constant barrage characterizing all Palestinians as Muslim terrorists and Jew-haters.

If you could give one piece of advice to these people to improve their situation, what would you tell them?

Very nice and descriptive pictures. It shows a resilient people making the most with what they have, with so much limits. These are human beings who will do so much better when they are given their freedom, rights, and a life without fear of tomorrow.

This is so uplifting!
