  1. I love love love 26 kilometers! It made me feel things and stir up a sense of nostalgia and longing , even though I’m not Palestinian. Kudos on your work and keep spouting beautiful verses!

  2. Wow, powerful and courageous. Faults can be found in believers of all religions, that does not question the religion itself but only the so called believers. No matter which religion or not-religion we count us to, as a law of nature or physics we will create what we belief, say and do – be it hell or heaven. The choice is ours and it is now and it’s result is also now. Forget about heaven or paradise, we have got to create a better environment and world now and here. And that is simply by treating each other as we would like to be treated ourselves and that obviously includes ladies and members of all religions and not-religions. Humans are at peace with each other, it’s the media, governments and hypocritical organizations misusing the name of religions which try to create war between brothers for their own power. It is our choice to enter the spiral of hate and violence or join our all hands with love. Carlo for http://Www.onefreelove.com
