Americans need to know about the horrors of life in Gaza.
For Palestinians it is not about religion. It is about occupation. I wish that you could have held the dying baby I held last October.  Majid ("glory" in Arabic) was dying from a severe birth defect.  His father had contacted my friend for help. The apartment was bare minus a few dirty cushions. Majid was comatose but could hear.  I sang to him and kissed his cheek. I witnessed first hand the March of Return. I saw a sea of women peacefully leading the protest. I wish you could have watched Dabke (traditional Palestinian dance) the protestors were doing; risking death just for resisting occupation.
