Is it just me or has all the hubub died down? No, don't get me wrong. I'm happy that there are no more current air-strikes in Gaza but Palestine is still a Country oppressed and Gaza is still suffering.

But, why do I feel that we've become silent once again. That the fund-raising, the rallies, the protests - they've all died down?

Do we only rise when worse comes to worse and become silent again when it's not so bad? Or when it's something that we've become indifferent to? Is that what our state has become?

Our lands are still under attack. Our people are still oppressed. Our leaders still need to either step down or be changed.

However, I have a feeling we will again become silent spectators. This is our state and it is a pathethic state. Everything will go back to normal and we will only think a thought or two when we, maybe, read the newspaper. 'O, those poor Iraqis' or 'Oh, my Muslim Brothers & Sisters in Palestine' - and then we'll go back to earning a living, meeting our friends, laughing and forgetting.

Until another Muslim Country is attacked. Until more people are killed in brutal genocide.

wa alaykumsalam,

Thank you :) It's a sad situation we are in and as long as we don't change the situation between ourselves, we won't get anywhere.

Over here some other news cover most of headlines now, yet the issues pertaining Gaza are still very much alive revolving on the fund-raising, coalitions, talks though I shudder to acknowledge that the silence may eventually come.

Assalamu alaikum wr wb,

Yes, the storm blew away. It is sad because the situation in Gaza, not forgetting Iraq and Afghanistan did not blow away. The attacks have renewed some peoples vigour to boycott israel as well as american products. That is about it.
