Memorializing 60 Years of Al Nekba – *EVENT*

           

                 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.

TAKE A LOOK AT FREEPALI.COM

About freepali

This site was created with a number of purposes in mind. Primary to all is to have it as a resource with the purpose of educating the general public about the conflict in Palestine. It is for all to use, both Palestinians and non-Palestinians alike. There are a vast number of websites which are in place that retain the same mission and many of these sites are referenced by way of links on this site.

It is the intent of this site to also promote dialogue and discussion regarding various topics by way of the blog section. freepali.com encourages all to participate and share information, opinions, articles, etc. to further this end.

It is the hope of freepali.com that individuals and groups will utilize this site and actively work towards the goal of educating themselves and their communities with regards to the Palestinian conflict and the atrocities being committed against the Palestinian people by the brutal Zionist occupation.

Finally, in an effort to promote awareness of the Palestine-Israeli conflict, an annual scholarship has been created for students to apply for. Candidates for the scholarship must exhibit an active effort in furthering awareness of the conflict and the victimization of the Palestinian people.

Support to maintain this site and the scholarship fund will come from the sale of merchandise in our store. With a great inventory of products promoting a Free Palestine, please visit our store and share it with your friends and family. Make sure to visit frequently as new items and designs will be added on a regular basis. Donations can also be made whereby you can specify where the money goes (site maintenance, scholarship, events, etc).

The Palestinian conflict is one that is unfortunately under-reported. It is the root problem to major worldly issues, yet it is ignored.

Although many would have you believe the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict is complicated, it truly is a very simple issue of right and wrong. The controversy surrounding the conflict is pure fabrication to divert attention away from the true facts and records. International law should apply to all, without exception. For, until justice is realized, there will be no peace.
