I am Hala Alsafadi. I am 20 years old. I belong to a land which has so many tales to be told. A land full of injustice, tyranny, and twisted truth. A country that suffers on a daily basis from the Israeli Occupation while the rest of the world is busy with the US Box Office and barely knows a thing about the tragic plots that happen on this Holy Land .I belong to the occupied Palestine, Gaza particularly.
I lived in the United States of America for a year. There, I was able to witness how the media doesn’t really show the truth. The whole picture of my country has not been viewed honestly. Watching how the Western media twisted the truth killed me from the inside. The approach of the Western Media which picks what to be shown and what to be hidden forced me to do something to unveil the hidden chapters of my Palestine’s tales to make the world aware of Israel heartless crimes in Palestine, that even run against the International Law.
Ghandi once said, “ Be the change you want to see in the world.” With the power of ink and words, Gazan youth are going to draw the change. A change built on truth, peace, freedom, and justice.
Through my blog, Gaza Behind The Scenes,
I promise Palestine to always do my best to show the entire world the real Palestine.
I promise Gaza to always do my best to show the entire world what is happening behind the scenes in Gaza.
With love and peace,
