It’s unbelievable that a country can be under illegal occupation for 60 years. That human beings can be treated so badly for so long; that thousands can be displaced, and killed. That ancient land can be destroyed, homes demolished, lives ruined. For many who don’t truly understand the Palestinian struggle, this is just another third page story of a liberal news paper. But for the many Palestinians, and Palestinian supporters, this is a thought that flows in their minds daily, and is something that must soon come to an end.
No matter what happens, Palestine will forever be in the hearts of the Palestinian people and their supporters. The Palestinian culture will never be forgotten, nor changed. Palestinian pride, will forever be in all our minds, and our blood, forever will be the same.
The Muslim American Society along with the American Muslims for Palestine are coming together along with the Hudson Valley Islamic Community Center in Mohegan Lake, NY; to celebrate the never forgotten culture of Palestine and to commemorate 60 years of Illegal Occupation. All are welcomed, young and old, to experience traditional and professional Palestinian Debka, Palestinian cuisine, Hand made goods, and dress competitions. (So if you own a traditional Palestinian outfit, come dressed and you could win!)
Guest speakers such as Alison Weir (Director of www.ifamericansknew.org) Salah Sarsour (AMP Chairman) Sister Khalilah Sabra (Director of MAS-FF North Carolina) and Br. Ayman Hamous (MAS NY Chapter Head) will all be speaking on their Palestinian experiances.
This event will be an incredible experience for those of all ages. Come learn about the Palestinian heritage, support the Palestinian culture. Come learn about the Palestinian struggle, and the 60 years of Occupation, and how we, together can educate the world. The event is free, with the main program and dinner starting at 7:00pm. For those with children, don’t let them miss out on learning the history and the culture of their land and people; and those with younger children, baby sitting will be available.
