Here we start

It's unpredictable how death might steel our happiness or our dearest ones and wake us up from our sorrows to a nightmare as life can never be the same without the existence if those who form the most part of it...

Many of us live for a cause, few die for it, others die trying but it differs what the cause is, as some people or groups intentions to destroy the globe while thinking that they are doing the greatest good for humanity, while others intentions to build love sanity and great humanity.

Many people don't understand the difference between right and light as they cann’t differentiate between peoples right of having a peaceful life in their homeland standing up against their invaders or terrorism, believe you me that 60 yrs of struggle has grown much hatred deeply inside each one of us and every house in the middle east has raised a black flag above its walls mourning the loss of its dearest ones or relatives and how many times we stood and said we are neutral, but our neutrality didn't doesn't and will never save us extremism of both parts involving in this struggle or our losses as 100s might attend a funeral but only few up to a hands count would realize how expensive is life loss.

No matter what I may say, I would never reach the true description of this man and I'd never find the true words that would tell his character, beliefs, and intentions .

Living in a world where we are all targeted either for nationality or religion and if we performed our religious duties we would be described as terrorists while the international world is preserving silence during the raise of the death count on hourly basis is one of the reasons we lost Ziad for a Palestinian in Palestine would be executed in a court of law if captured with “pen”, what if he was driving his car to visit his family members.

Before the “jihad” that is widely known as “raising arms”, which is in certain agendas an act of terrorism despite the causes and the philosophies, we have another type of jihad, which is feeding and looking after our family members, and looking after their needs, support and educate them, that's the one and only kind of “jihad” Ziad believed in ??

"A terrorist" is a sticker glued to any victim of crusuality to justify the killing of innocents??

It takes a long lifetime hard work to raise a family and moments to steal the happiness of a family and its future. Once a happy family can never be that happy again, as Ziad’s face will not smile and his loud laughter will never be heard except while we are seeking and flipping the memories.

His anger never outraged an escalation to terminate others life path due to loss of his or his brothers in humanity or in land, he is wise enough to study each and every word action or behavior before attempting regardless his beliefs, his family and wife meant the world to him and raising a peaceful family yes it makes a difference in this world of hatred and racism, but still it counts now?
Now as I lost him, we lost him, I ask, being neutral and human full of love to everyone has cost Ziad his life and millions before him, what difference it makes when we are all tagged and targeted.

p.s. kindly save me the judgment, I wrote it and didn't even have time to revise it.


  1. Nice article dude, keep it up. Would you kindly tell us who is Ziad?

  2. Well, your article opens our eyes on things we really have, but unfortunately we abandon, I agree with robert, we would like to know who is Ziad? I just hope humans will wake up 1 day with a discovery of what's going on in poor Palestine... All the love, Hayat.

  3. This is a pity, seems ziad was a real person, I am so sad to read this, please I would want to know more details, enrich us, thank you! And may his soul rest in total peace

  4. this post is well written to gather most of Arab views and even non-Arabs as it discusses a world crisis not only a little problem, please we would like more pictures if available, blessings, may his soul RIP

    I still find myself listening at night to hear the clinging of your keys trying to open the front door.Hoping that this might have been just a dream & find you standing there looking in on the kids when they are sleeping...I remember how you would just sit there gazing at them & saying "Masha'Allah, we make beautiful Babies".Some days are harder than most...its the quite that makes it hardest to deal with.I keep going over in my head "WHY" but i know deep down that what is written can not be undone.I am soo thankful that you brought me to your Wonderful country & showed me the "TRUTH" of whats really happening here.I never would have thought that i could have been so happy,& that it would & could be ripped away so fast.I found a poem that represents what I'am feeling at this present moment.I love & miss you sooo much Babe & hope I can go on the way you would have wanted us too in raising our children.With Allah's (God) help.

    If Tears Could...

    If tears could build a stairway
    And memories were a lane,
    I would walk right up to heaven
    To bring you home again.
    No farewell words were spoken.
    No time to say good-bye.
    You were gone before we knew it,
    And only God knows why.
    My heart still aches in sadness
    And secret tears still flow.
    What it meant to lose you,
    No one will ever know.

  7. Ziad Jilani. I was unaware of Ziad and his story until just a few weeks back when I reconnected with his wife Moira on Facebook. I remember Moira from grade school and remember her for the kindness she always showed to me. It saddens me to think that her daughters will not have their father at their weddings nor have their children sleep in his arms. How can one heal from a loss such as what has befallen them? They can't because some wounds never heal.
    I stand for justice for all those that are downtrodden. Justice for the oppressed! With LOVE from Texas. REMEMBER ZIAD JILANI! 6-11/2012
