Ahmed Alnaouq, a Palestinian from Gaza whose brother was killed by Israeli forces, explains what motivated him to pair up with an Israeli journalist, Yuval Abraham, and co-launch a project that brings first-person narratives from Palestinians to an Israeli audience: “Translating the stories published by We Are Not Numbers into Hebrew offers unfiltered content straight from Gaza to all Israelis willing to try to understand.”

Ahmed Alnaouq writes a letter to the late Jamal Khashoggi: “I believe that your murder will become a rallying cry for all human rights defenders and those who previously silenced themselves in the presence of tyrants. Instead of squelching your voice, bin Salman and other oppressors have given new life to your words, which now are slogans for all people longing to be free.”
