“Today the world will hear our voice”

A Palestinian boy during a rally in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Nov. 29 to support a resolution at the U.N. to upgrade their observer status to “non-member state.”

BBC: The UN General Assembly has voted to grant the Palestinians non-member observer state status – a move strongly opposed by Israel and the US.

…. Hundreds of Palestinians celebrated on the streets of Ramallah, in the West Bank, after the result was announced.

….. “For the first time, there will be a state called Palestine, with the recognition of the entire world,” Amir Hamdan was quoted as saying …. “Today the world will hear our voice,” he added.

It’s a delicate chess game, I know, so deep breaths today, no hysteria about the US’s UN vote, depressing and miserable as it was – but truly, I’ll die happy if President Obama works towards bringing justice to the Palestinian people in the next four years.

For me, that’s the single greatest legacy he could leave.

Stupidly, I’m heartbroken by the Obama administration’s stance today, even though we all knew it was coming.

There are better, more courageous days ahead.

I hope.
