Slide1 l.jpg

I am a Palestinian.

Please help me

By learning about

Me and my people.

Slide2 l.jpg

Our ancestors had been living in our

homeland for thousands of years.

But starting in 1945 our homes were taken from us

By attacks on us. We did not sell our land.

Slide4 l.jpg

Most of our land was stolen from us.

And we have been put behind huge

Walls that surround us.

Some call it a “Giant Prison”.

Slide5 l.jpg

Our Palestinian children

Try to hide to be safe.

Slide6 l.jpg

And other children try

to fight back,

to get our homes back,

to get our freedom back.

Slide7 l.jpg

We try to stop the Israelis from

bulldozing our homes

and our beloved olive trees.

We try to stop them from stealing

More of our homeland.

Slide9 l.jpg

Our people are beaten for protesting

That our land is being taken away

And our homes are being destroyed.

Slide10 l.jpg

Palestinians throw stones because we have

Nothing else to show how miserable we are.

Our lives have been destroyed.

Slide12 l.jpg

Some of us have made home-made

Qassam bombs.

They shoot at Israel to try to fight back.

Slide13 l.jpg

But Israel is much

Stronger than we are.

Slide15 l.jpg

Our buildings are destroyed

From the huge Israeli bombs.

Slide22 l.jpg

2 years ago, Israel also bombed our

Neighbor in the north, Lebanon.

Nobody stopped it.

Slide23 l.jpg

Israel claims that it

Is defending itself.

Israel says that it only

Targets people who

Are attacking them.

Slide24 l.jpg

But Israel uses CLUSTER BOMBS,

Which kill everyone around them.

Cluster bombs are banned by

International law because of it.

Slide25 l.jpg

Why is Israel so strong?

Many say it is because of the strong

Jewish lobby in the USA.

“On average, USA gave more than

US$6.8 million to Israel every day

during 2007.”

- John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt

George W Bush with Israel’s Prime Minister Olmert.

George W Bush with Israeli leaders.

George W Bush said that the USA is “proud

to be Israel's closest ally and best friend.”

Who Says That Palestine Is Our Land?

“Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English

or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs.

What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct.

Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine

can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home.”

- Mahatma Gandhi – Peaceful Ex-Leader of India (1938)

"Let us not ignore the truth ... politically we are

the aggressors and they defend themselves...

The country is theirs, whereas we want to come

here and settle down, and in their view we want

to take away from them their country.

- David Ben Gurion (Israeli Prime Minister 1949)

"There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler,

Auschwitz, but was that their fault? No. They see

one thing: we have come and we have stolen their

[Palestinian] country. Why would they accept that?"

- David Ben Gurion (Israeli Prime Minister 1949)

Human rights defenders working in the Occupied Territories of Palestine are at risk of attack by Israeli settlers. Amnesty International is concerned at the latest such attack

against those who seek through their presence to afford protection to Palestinians

and to bear witness to the abuses perpetrated against them by Israeli settlers in the area.

Tove Johansson from Stockholm was with a small

group of human rights workers to accompany

Palestinian schoolchildren to their homes. The

19-year old Swedish human rights worker had her

cheekbone broken by Israeli settlers.

Thank you,

Rachel Corrie.

And thank you,

Tom Hurndall.

For trying to help us.

You are our heroes!

Slide34 l.jpg

We are the Palestinians.

We have lived like this for over 60 years.

The more people know,

The better the world will be.

We wish that we can all live

in peace and harmony.
