“It would be my greatest sadness to see Zionists (Jews) do to Palestinian Arabs much of what Nazis did to Jews.” ― Albert Einstein
“Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs… Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home” ― Mahatma Gandhi
“If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” ― Malcolm X

In Bosnia, there is an organization made up of Palestinian diaspora who have basically organized this event. I was really surprised to learn how many Arabs are now in BiH, but more specifically, in Sarajevo itself, and it brings me lots of peace knowing that Palestinians can find hope in this broken BiH to live and grow, and hopefully return one day to Palestine.
I was at this protest yesterday. It was beautiful being among my own people standing for the same cause: to recognize and speak out against the apartheid, genocide, and terrorism that Israel is carrying out against the Palestinian people.
