Remember Jenin


Remember those killed in the Jenin refugee camp ten years ago during the second intifada. Israeli forces invaded and massacred civilians. Like they do. Gaza, Deir Yassin, Sabra and Shatila, Jabalia, Beirut, Dawayma...

I was named after the Palestinian city Jenin. Neither side of my family is from there, but my parents liked the name. Jenin is home of The Freedom Theatre, established by Juliano Mer Khamis in 2008.

The video below was filmed after the destruction and slaughter in Jenin. "Yes, they destroyed everything, but we will rebuild it despite their presence," says a young Palestinian girl in the documentary.

Girl, seems like you don't know anything about the Sabra and Shatila massacre. You should "thank" the Lebanese for killing your people.

The Phalange were trained and supported by Israel. The massacre was pre-meditated by both. Israeli forces closed off and blockaded the camps while Phalange forces went in and massacred civilians. Israel is an accessory to the killings and is culpable. Zionism is what killed those Palestinians.

Also, don't try to patronise me by calling me 'girl'.
