I remember talking with some friends and them casually joking about the misunderstanding between Muslims and the typical American. They argued that Americans would never be able to grasp that Muslims are not the fictional stereotype of bomb-dropping and women-oppressing individuals media outlets have made them out to be.

Hamas commits crimes against humanity in Palestine

We are human. It is our duty to treat each other as such and uphold humanity to certain moral standards. Right now in the Gaza conflict both Israel and Hamas are committing crimes against those standards. Perhaps the biggest crimes of all are the restriction of belief and the systematic execution of those accused of espionage, not those proven of espionage.

Israeli institutional power’s seven-year blockade in Gaza

August 25, 2014 Executive Editor 0

Someone told me the other day that what is happening in Gaza is just a “distraction” for what is really going on in the world. I wonder what, in their mind, counts as real. The Gaza strip is a very tiny piece of land, but the conflict around it affects us all. The way that we think and feel about Gaza points to a larger truth about how we think and feel about oppression, and what we are willing to do to make a change.
