comments section...

Ok, something's obvioysly amiss in the comments section and I'm not sure how to fix it-I did a test run and no comments are being posted. I'm going to try to disable moderation to see if that works, then contact blogger. Any suggestions welcome!

Below is contact information sent to me from occupied Palestine by a Palestinian friend. I find it to be the only effective way to help Liala,her son Yousuf, and her parents to cross over to her home in Gaza. Yes, that is a heartbreaking story. It just highlite the suffering of all Palestinian. I read her acount twice in the last week. I don't know how can red-blooded human being could remain silent after reading her acount. I am glad she posted the picture of her son Yousuf. It is very powerfull. He is the age of my youngest son, and has the same name as of my oldest son Yousef. If I may add one more thing, here goes:
After the Nazis proscuted,dehumanised and killed 6 million Jews, everybody asked, " Where are the good German?"
Please let us learn from history. Don't let happen again. It takes only few minute to drop a line for Israeli officials. Urge them to open the gate and stop treat Palestinian like Liala and her son Yousuf like the Nazis treat them.
That is only support that this young lady and her family needs.For those of you who are good at writing, you could write a letter to the editor to your hometown newspaper, Israeli press, and or even submitt a guest column about Liala story and her suffering. How is her family is split apart as a result of Israeli repressive policies toward Palestinians. That is a human intrest story that many papers love to run. I have done , and I know I can you can too. Blieve me you, you would sleep better atnight afterwards. Thank you inadvance. And good luck to UM Yousuf [the mother of Yousuf in Arabic]
