Have you heard of Ziad Al-Julani, Mohammed Abdeen, Ra’id Abu Hammad, Hazim Al-Dab’aat and Samir Sarhan? Have you read their names in newspapers, in website articles, in social media messages? Have you stopped for a minute to think about these people, about their lives and the injustice done to them? Have you thought about these fathers, these sons, these brothers, these loved ones before jumping to quick-read the next article or facebook/tweet the next link? Ziad Al-Julani, Mohammed Abdeen, Ra’id Abu Hammad, Hazim Al-Dab’at and Samir Sarhan are only a few names among a long list of Palestinian Jerusalemites murdered in cold-blood by Israeli occupation forces. Ziad Al-Julani, Mohammed Abdeen, Ra’id Abu Hammad, Hazim Al-Dab’at and Samir Sarhan are only a few among the thousands over thousands of Palestinians killed by Zionists since the first Zionist set foot on Palestinian land. Ziad Al-Julani, Mohammed Abdeen, Ra’id Abu Hammad, Hazim Al-Dab’at and Samir Sarhan are only a few among thousands of Palestinians murdered during this year by the Zionist entity, while its leaders were claiming in front of TV cameras that they want peace and a better future for the Palestinians. The five of them come from various Jerusalem suburbs; from Silwan, from Shu’fat, from Izariyyeh (Bethany), from At-Tur. But the love of Palestine, of their city Jerusalem, of their land, of their families combines them. The love of freedom and the thirst for freedom brought them together and Zionist terrorism killed the smile on their faces, crushed their dreams and strangled the hearts that spell “Palestine” with every beat. Three of them were loving husbands and fathers who left bereaved families and children who will grow up without the warmth of a fatherly hug or the comfort of a fatherly advice. The other two were young men, dreaming of freedom, hoping for a better life and better days to come. They, like the thousands over thousands of Palestinians murdered by the Zionist entity, were murdered because their mere existence was a threat to the Zionist entity, they were murdered because they are Palestinians.
