It is hard to catch a season or a day in the Palestinian context. We start the year with movements and party memorial days. March starts after celebrating women and mothers into a sacrifice where women and mothers are the ones who pay the highest price for their patience.. a loss of a son, a brother, a husband… we ask women to keep dragging their wombs into more sacrifice for the land and the home state.
The land day, the nakba day, the nausea day, the home state, the massacre, the war, the incursion, the prisoner day …. days all along the year when remembrance cost more sacrifice of a Palestinian son or a daughter who lost a chance of life forever, and a mother, a lover, a father, a brother, left behind weeping in silence and chanting out loud, I have a martyr that has just ascended to the sky.
As one can easily see, the titles of our events that need to be revived many. We commemorate the anniversary of Land Day, which dates back to 1976, when the Israeli occupation authorities confiscated thousands of dunums of private and communal land in the occupied Palestinian north, resulting in clashes and general strikes, and hundreds were arrested, and six Palestinians were killed. Since that day, the Palestinians have staged a general strike and marches on this anniversary.
Last year, the return marches in Gaza began to coincide with the Palestinian reunification in its tragedies to start a tragic day in our history.
The mass rallies of Gaza have inspired the world, and the Gazans once again managed to invade the resistance with a different title amid the usual courage of our people in Gaza.
We Palestinians are accustomed to asceticism in our children’s lives when they ascend to become martyrs, God willing. This positive energy in the reception of the human tragedy may be part of the psychology of disasters, which gives man an incentive to continue and perhaps to believe that the afterlife must be prepared by its soldiers for those martyrs who are exalted to God.
Every mother and mother may bear every father, brother, friend, and lover with a dream that wishes not to wake up at Kabusia with the loss of a lover forever. Nothing can be done to bring the moment back to the previous one to die. There is no hope of hope, no advice or wish for a return to the life that has just escaped.
We conquer the martyrs and glorify them. We weep them and tell them. Our grief breaks our arteries, and our hearts are hardened by oppression, and we cry out despite this and grow up and rust the sky with chants.
Who benefits from losing the Palestinian soul more than the occupation, which triumphs for itself with everybody?
That makes life happy?
The Day of the Earth prescribes the ascension of six Palestinians, for whom the land has not yet been established. In the past, martyrdom had a meaning reflected in all the corridors of our Palestinian life to be the Day of the Earth.
Today the earth swallows the body of the martyr and markets his testimony to the faction. The people of politics race over it to negotiate and divide the sale of the homeland and its boundary to unique places.
What is happening to the martyrs and what is happening from afar to their families, the sound of our betrayal of the blood of these righteous people. The subject of martyr Muhannad’s family is passing through. The family took over the order to evacuate the house from the Palestinian authorities.
Nothing can be commented upon seriously …
But with this, the race of martyrdom is still the title of those powerful in our order—race on another martyr to win by means that do not belong to the homeland or the citizen.
The martyrs have become mere numbers calculated to be helpful for a political, partisan, or partisan camp.
The march of return, which was launched in conjunction with the Land Day to commemorate the Nakba, was transformed or instead hijacked into a subject of political bargaining to lift the siege.
My question may be challenging to listen to, but as we call on the world to follow us on the path of the return of another two million, for what and who will come out of the masses?
To return or to lift the siege?
Of course, we must all come out to lift the siege, and perhaps the march towards lifting the blockade is more essential and more meaningful for the sake of return. We do not know, and the outsiders do not know how to demonstrate any return.
I do not know that we as a people will sacrifice the most precious thing they have for a nation that is free of an exception for people. In sum, history’s experiences are full of sacrifices. But in this case, which we do not know the occupation of the end and no peace on the horizon, the lives of our children remain witness to what we do, even though it is the most expensive, but where these sacrifices go at a time when the blood of the people is used to the political platforms of the faction at the expense of the other.
In Gaza, while the Gazans confront their bare, live-naked bodies, politicians bargain and bargain with advantages to undermine the siege and the ensuing, the people themselves come out on the street in a bid to improve the tragic life there.
In the West Bank A few days ago, as before weeks, a group of young people was killed, and the martyr’s blood ended with the condolences of the president and a visit to an official. In Ramallah and its villages, the occupation demolishes the houses of the martyrs, and the authorities try their families. The story of Muhannad al-Halabi and what is happening today with his family requires a frank stand against our standards towards these martyrs.
How painful our daily existence is …
