Some pic I took during the March for Palestine that took place. More than 6k people showed up. It was such a peaceful and passionate protest. People if every ethnicity showed love for Palestine. From Arabs to Greeks, Mexicans, Punjabis and Russians and evey were in between, but there was absolutely NO media coverage on it what so ever.
You know what that means … We just gotta try harder.
لفضح جرائم الاحتلال
الحرب ضد اطفال فلسطين
Im surprised this has only 500 notes!
Reblog and expose the crimes of the damned israeli occupation army against children in Palestine! This is INHUMANE even for a Jew or a Catholic! Not necessarily Muslims only!! This is god-damned zionism!!!! No religion from God would ever approve of this!
The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Whoever established prayers on the night of Qadr out of sincere faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven; and whoever fasts in the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.”
(Narrated By Abu Huraira. Sahih Bukhari: Volume 003, Book 031, Hadith Number 125.)

Hundreds of demonstrators march up Whitehall as they protest against Israel’s military action in Gaza, in central London on July 19, 2014. Up to 15,000 people are thought to have marched through the capital from Downing Street to the Israeli embassy in Kensington after Israel launched a ground invasion of Gaza on Thursday.

The years 2013 and 2014 simultaneously ended and began with a New Years trip by me. It was an adventure to the northernmost part of Ghana, Bolgatanga, a place dotted with crocodile ponds, and the objective of which was to do a photo shoot. I did not share in this experience alone, especially as it was all happening on the eve of my 30th birthday.
With my retinue of friends, the actress, MaameYaa, two creatives from Design233, Kwame Edwin Otu and the photographer Charles Lawson, and the Australian bloke Matthew Keks, the experience was super-magical. Together with MaameYaa, I positioned myself in front of the camera for a wonderful photo shoot by Charles Lawson.
These shots indeed tell a story, one which is both compelling and instructive. This is one about friendship revival, trust and dedication, and the re-bridging of relationships separated by the Atlantic.
Sisterhood is, indeed, forever.
