If you are looking to major U.S. news networks to give you information on the “War”, then you are being given an inaccurate view of what is happening in Gaza at this very moment. The rest of the world stands with Palestine; have you ever wondered why?

- the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.
at this point, they can call anything a “terrorist base” to justify their actions. the point is that over 1000 Palestinians are dead, 7/10 of those deaths are civilians, with 2/10 being children.

When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself.
