The compilation of headlines and brief summaries makes for anything but comfortable reading – which is why the blogsite exists!
According to information on Shadi Fadda’s “About Us” page, he/they began to put together the ‘daily compilation of headlines “Today in Palestine!” […] back in April 2003, as soon as USA and its allies occupied Iraq. [The blog’s] main task was always to spread the information that western media insisted on avoiding.’
Fadda quotes the late and great Edward Said, 1935-2003:
Isn’t it astonishing that all the signs of popular solidarity that Palestine and the Arabs receive occur with no comparable sign of solidarity and dignity for ourselves, that others admire and respect us more than we do ourselves? Isn’t it time we caught up with our own status and made certain that our representatives here and elsewhere realize, as a first step, that they are fighting for a just and noble cause, and that they have nothing to apologize for or anything to be embarrassed about? On the contrary, they should be proud of what their people have done and proud also to represent them.
Edward W Said
In Solidarity, for Justice and Peace!
