In Memory of the Gaza Massacre
These pictures are not being published for others to sympathize with us as victorious people do not beg others for sympathy as can be seen in the example of the Companions of the Prophet when they came to him requesting his du'a (supplication) after being severely tortured.
Two years on, it is very easy for a violent memory to be lost amidst the current day affairs affecting Muslims. It is each an every Muslims role never to let such atrocities like the one we saw against our kinsmen in Gaza become just another incident. I wanted to write some words in memory of that evil day, until an email was brought to my attention which quite frankly left me speechless an unable to muster words that would even come close to expressing the tragedy contained in the attached pictures. The pictures do speak louder than words, and I leave you with them as a reminder of the desperate situation of the Gazans. Please note that the pictures are somewhat of a disturbing nature - images of the innocent wounded in hospital, and I hope that we are able to harbor enough courage to withstand just a glimpse of what happened in December 2008.
