Poster above is about event to help Gazans that always in poor condition. There is some info about this campaign and also siege that make Palestine like a cage.

Lifeline 4 Gaza is a collaborative effort between Malaysian NGOs to join an international campaign to break years of Israel siege on Gaza. They are working along with Free Gaza Movement who is based in Cyprus, IHH in Turkey, MERC and Kispa Indonesia, and other NGOs from USA, Greece, France, Sweeden, Germany, Italy, Venezuella and many more.

The flotilla is expected to depart Istanbul on 15th May 2010, comprising 20 ships and cargo boats to be laden with building supplies, generators, medical equipment and educational materials. They will sail through the Mediterranean Sea, carrying members of Parliament from countries around the world as well as high-profile journalists and human rights activists.

why break the siege?

The siege or blockade of Gaza started in June 2007. The blockade was supported by the governments of Egypt and the USA, among other nations. It consists of a land blockade along Gaza’s borders with Egypt and Israel, and a sea blockade maintained by the Israeli navy from three nautical miles offshore. It immediately followed the 2006-2007 economic sanctions against the Palestinian National Authority following the election of Hamas to the Palestinian government.

Prior to 2007 blockade, Israeli military has already imposed blockade of the Gaza Strip and closure of the Gaza International Airport, following the The Al-Aqsa Intifada which broke out in September 2000. The blockade worsened after the creation of a ‘buffer zone’ in September 2001, that would seal all entry and exit points in the Palestinian Territories. After 9 October, 2001, movement of people and goods across the ‘Green Line’ dividing the West Bank from Israel, and between the Gaza Strip and Israel, was halted, and a complete internal closure was effected on November 14, 2001.

More than 1.5 million Gazans have been cut off from the outside world and struggling with desperate poverty. The ongoing siege or blockade of Gaza punishes the entire population, young and old, by restricting the entry of food, medical supplies, educational equipment and building materials, oils, and virtualy any other basic supplies that are essential for a living.


I know someone will said,"naah, for sure, Israel or Egypt will block those supplies for Gaza"Maybe there is high possibilities this supplies will be blocked by Egypt or Israel, but there is also possibility this supplies will be transferred into Palestine. The most important one is, we as a human that always protect other human's rights, have show some efforts to help them.

I have read somewhere a Malay guy said, "why we must bother about Palestine-Israel issues?, if Palestine didn't against Israel, i'm very sure this world is in peace"...jokes!, come on man. okey, why Malay people want a freedom from Britian at 1957?.hmm, if you read history books, for sure, we dont want to be oppressed by those Britian. We want our own rights to manage our country by our own system, same goes with Palestine, they want to live peacefully and want their own rights.

For Muslims, please never insult someone who want to do some deeds because i have heard someone said "Those who just pray for our brothers at Palestine is nothing, they didnt help Palestine,"huh?. Please,who are you to say that, this deed is better than another deed.?

Only Allah knows the best.

قُلْ كُلٌّ يَعْمَلُ عَلَىٰ شَاكِلَتِهِ فَرَبُّكُمْ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنْ هُوَ أَهْدَىٰ سَبِيلًا
Say: "Everyone acts according to his own disposition: But your Lord knows best who it is that is best guided on the Way."

Ertinya : Katakanlah: ""Tiap-tiap orang berbuat amalan menurut keadaannya masing-masing"". Maka tuhanmu lebih mengetahui siapa yang lebih benar jalannya" ( Al-Isra : 84 )

oh, we can help our brothers and sisters in Palestine using many ways.

1) Lend your hand, i mean physically help. You can go to Palestine to help using your own skills.If you're a doctor, you can give a treatment.

2) Money.If you cant go to Palestine, you can give your money even only RM1.

3)Pray for Palestine will be free.

4)Attend any event or programme that supports Palestine.

5)Through writing whether in blog, fb, sms, email , books, or just a poster.

6)Give a sermon or speech about Palestine issues if you capable to do it.

7) Boycott the products made by the companies that support Israel.

p/s : I realized I'm not a pious person , but i want to do my best as a Muslim. Help Gazans.!,
