Palestinians have lived under Israeli occupation for more than 60 years. Their homes and land have been stolen and their status reduced to that of refugees in their own country.

I remember being in Tavira after a short holidays when Yasser Arafat compound was being under siege by Israeli military. He was there, as I remember for weeks and I thought he will be murdered there. After all that long time in a small compound end with his precarious life eventually. But he will always be remember as an inspiration to my generation.
