Amid the ongoing conflict, a historic turning point has emerged, as the People’s Public Court has risen in support of the rights of those living in Occupied Palestine. However, this is not a conventional court but a powerful movement on social media, where people unite to condemn the ongoing genocide.
For years, there was a longing for a figure akin to Nelson Mandela, who could represent the plight of the suffering Palestinians. Amid this turbulent year, a courageous journalist has emerged as the voice and symbol of the struggle for news and updates from Occupied Palestine. Journalists like Motaz Azaiza have diligently provided on-the-ground images and reports, captivating the world with their stories.
In this challenging time, these journalists have demonstrated the extraordinary power of the pen over the sword. Their bravery in Gaza highlights the dangers they face, yet they persist in sharing the authentic narratives of ordinary people. While they may not be liberators, their role in shaping history will be unforgettable. From this year onwards, Palestinians have gained a global voice through their unwavering commitment and determination. I jestingly told my children that Palestinian journalists are so brave they don’t even use phone covers.
These journalists have become the embodiment of humanity, hope, and reliable news in a world filled with controversy. Unbeknownst to them, they have become the face that Palestinians needed to establish a human connection with the world, much like the heroes of the apartheid struggle in South Africa.
Despite facing numerous injustices, Palestinians have achieved an impressive number of PhD graduates, surpassing other regions globally. They have pursued education under oppressive circumstances that hinder their prosperity. After over 75 years, the world has awakened, mobilizing protests worldwide against this genocide. This unprecedented display of solidarity marks a momentous shift that promises to reshape history for years to come.
