Gazan astrophysicist tells his story
Suleiman Baraka is a brilliant Palestinian astrophysicist from Gaza that my father met while he awaiting permission to leave to fulfill a scholarship he had attained. He is now working at Virgnia Tech with NASA. His eleven-year-old son Ibrahim was killed in an Israeli air strike on his house. His wife and three other children are now homeless in Gaza, along with seventeen members of his family. In his first broadcast interview in the US, Suleiman Baraka tells his story to Democracy Now.
