Of all those Palestinians living a life under siege, the suffering of the children is arguably the greatest.
Childhood is meant to be a time of carefree happiness, love and laughter, shared with family and friends. Yet an entire generation of Palestinian children is living a childhood marred with only death, trauma and terror.
They are the ones who live.
For those many, many innocent little ones who have become collateral damage in Israel's vendetta against the Palestinian people, we ask Allah to keep them safe and happy under the guardianship of Prophet Ibrahim (as). And we ask Allah to grant patience to those parents who have lost their little ones and that Allah grants them comfort from knowing that their children are in the care of His khalil (intimate friend). May Allah make these departed young ones a means for their parents to enter jannah. May He re-unite them in His garden, a place where there is no horror, oppression or tyranny, only laughter, happiness and peace. Aameen, thumma aameen.
I want to dedicate this page to some of Israel's youngest victims by posting their names and pictures. InshaAllah I will post about one child at a time. If we are not already adding our voices to those who call for an end to Israeli tyranny, what are we waiting for? If your heart can view these pictures without feeling anything, regardless of who you are, then ask yourself if it is a heart you harbour in your chest or a rock.
Keep our beautiful children and their parents in your prayers.
Mohammad Naser Al-Bura'i, 5 months
|Age: 5 months|
|Date of Death: Wed, 27-2-2008 in the evening|
|Place of Death: In his cradle|
|Weapon Type: A rocket by F16 military plane|
|Details of the last hours:|
|His father played with him, then his mother breast-fed him. She put him kindly in his cradle. The father bent over to kiss the chubby cheek of the five-month toddler. An hour later, a rocket fired by an Israeli F16 plane destroyed a building on the other side of the street. This resulted in demolishing the house over the baby. The baby was killed and his mother was injured. "I ran like crazy to Mohammad's cradle. He was motionless," the bereaved father recalled the heart-wrenching scene. |
Naser rushed his bleeding baby to the hospital in the immediate vicinity but it was too late. "He was already dead. The Israelis killed this helpless innocent toddler," Naser said.
|Other: Mohmmad came to this life after five long years of patience and impotency endured by his parents. His parents planned to raise him carefully to be a good citizen in his country.|
