This is the holy month of Ramadhaan. Remember when America attacked Iraq in this month in what became known as the Ramadhaan Offensive (October 26, 2003 – November 24, 2003)? Israel does the same to the people of Gaza. Let us unite and pray to Allah to protect the people of Gaza. Let us pray to stop the violence on both sides and let the people of Palestine be free.
