  • Dr. El-Farra,

    It was great to see you on Democracy Now! Best of luck to you in your tour. Hopefully someday you'll return to a free and democratic Palestine. I have a link to the story on my blog .

  • Dear Dr. El-Farra,

    I heard you today on Amy Goodman's Democracy Now radio show(WMNF Public Radio in Tampa, Florida.)

    I was very inspired by your work in Gaza and would love to discuss with you an idea to help the children in Gaza and the West Bank.

    Please give me an email address or phone number where I can discuss this with you.

    Thank you,

  • Mona, I am watching you now on Democracy Now. Thank you so much for traveling so far, and putting yourself in danger to come speak to us. You are a hero to me!

  • I thought Gaza had been closed and isolated for long before last week. Or was there no Israeli blockade after all? Is it just now that the Palestinians have the run of the place that they actually shut down the airports?

  • Israelimom,
    >>Or was there no Israeli blockade after all?<<

    It is made a PRISON by the occupiers!
    Hardly anyone can get out or in. The sea is closed off, the airfield is bombarded, so no sky traffic.
    The only border post to the "Holy land" is mainly closed.
    The other at Rafah is hardly open, though the occupier promised to keep it open. By some tricky rules they keep that one closed too. Is it a wonder that people who need medicines dig tunnels to Egypt to get them? They will never get their stuff the original way.
    Just read the last Oxfam report...(sic!)

    Peace to you...
