Salaam Dear Rooster,
Sorry for being in a hurry and write these few words for you. I don't have enough time,just 3 hours a day of electricity, as you know. So.. let me say it quick. We are OK til now Alhamdulillah (Thank God). The telecommunications are so bad, seldom to catch a line. They did that to stop the reporters work all over the world. Now.. in local radio stations and all other international media they face many difficulties to contact their reporters inside of Gaza.
Please forward my salam to all of your family members and room contacts. Hope we'll contact soon. I've added you to my contact list on MSN.

أهناك مايُبكي أكثر من هذا المنظر ؟ لا والله !
اللهم انصر إخواننا المستضعفين في غزة ، اللهم إنك أنت الناصر المعين في وقتٍ لاناصر فيه ولامعين ، اللهم انصرهم وأعنهم
اللهم ارحم ميتهم ، واشفِ مريضهم ، وصبّرهم ، ورد كيد عدوهم في نفسه .. يامجيب دعاء الداعين .
اللهم عليك بالصهاينة المعتدين ، فإنهم لايعجزونك
والله من لم تدمع عينه ويرق قلبه ويحرك لسانه بالدعاء لهذا المنظر فان قلبه ميت واحساسه متبلد فليراجع نفسه
يا من قرأت هذه الرسالة وشاهدت هذه الصورة تأكد أن الله سوف يسألك يوم القيامة ماذا قدمت لهذه المظلومة
بل ماذا قدمت لآلاف الأمهات والأطفال في غزة
لا تقل لاستطيع أن أعمل بل تستطيع
تستطيع الدعاء وهذا أعظم عمل
وتستطيع نشر قضيتهم
فهل تبخل على هذا الطفل وهذه الأم ؟؟؟
