السيد رئيس الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة،

السيدات والسادة،

تجيء فلسطين اليوم إلى الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة وهي ما تزال تُضمد جِراحها، وتواصل دفن شُهدائها الأحباب من الأطفال والنساء والرجال، ضحايا العدوان الإسرائيلي، وتبحث عن بقايا حياة وسط أنقاض البيوت التي دمرتها القنابل الإسرائيلية في قطاع غزة، فأبادت عائلات بأكملها، برِجالها ونسائها وأطفالها، واغتالت ذكرياتهم وأحلامهم وآمالهم ومستقبلهم، وتوقهم لممارسة الحياة العادية، وللعيش في ظل الحرية والسلام.

I speak on behalf of a gravely suffering people – the Palestinian people – who are enduring yet another barrage of death, destruction, trauma and terror at the hands of the Israeli occupying forces.  [Read more…]
