Let's Break The Siege!!

Palestine will be free, insyaAllah...
Despite the hardships that had been piling on their people for the past decades.
Because they keep fighting and have faith in Allah.
Also because there are people all over the world who care.
Helping them, in whatever ways they can.

Are you game to be part of the helpers? Or do you just want to sit back and relax?
If so, you may have a good time in this world, but in the future, in the hereafter, if Allah asks you, 
"What have you done for your brothers and sisters in Palestine who are in distress?"
How are you going to answer?

Be part of those do do their bit (even if not much, at least, do what we can do)
Contribute, boycott, and raise awareness..

Currently, a fund is being raised to help the Palestinians in distress.  Here is one of the articles regarding it:  







Turkish Relief Foundation (IHH) and Free Gaza Movement plan to break years of Israel siege on Gaza land through sea this time.
The campaign that is expected to start on April 20, is named “last port is freedom”.
IHH said in a statement sent to World Bulletin, “the Flotilla is planned to contain 20 boats, which some of them will be cargo boats.”
Along with Free Gaza Movement in UK and IHH in Turkey, organizations from USA, Malaysia, Greece, France, Germany, Italy and Venezuella are expected to join the flotilla by sending boats, the statement said.
Boats will be laden with building supplies, generators and educational materials that Israel halts from entering Gaza since their brutal attack on the civilian population a year ago.
The many passenger boats will carry members of Parliament from countries around the world as well as high-profile journalists and human rights activists.
The ship that will set off from Istanbul aims to reach Gaza via the Mediterranean Sea. There are no international legal obstacles to prevent ships to go to Gaza through the sea.
“Aid campaign”

The relief foundation Chairman Bulent Yildirim said the aid campaign aims to sail with 20 ships and as IHH, plans to buy 5 ships.

Yildirim said they continue to research for the purchase. ” We continue talks for the purchase of 3 ships, looking for ships in Greece and other countries.”
IHH launched an aid campaign for the purchase of ships.

“But we have no power to do this alone. We launch an aid campaign to get these ships. We want everyone to contribute a small share, expect donations from our charitable people,” he said.
Pointing out to the embargo in Gaza since 2006, Yildirim said, “We, as non-governmental organizations take the civilian initiative. We demand to end this embargo. Launched in December 2009, our convoy did break the siege, the issue was brought to the world agenda once more. We will break the embargo from the sea this time. Hopefully after this move, states willl act as well.”
