Mira Nair on #Gaza Conflict
| GAZA July 29th 2014 | Got Hollywood director Mira Nair to comment on#Gaza and the following is what she said adding to a large cauldron of influential people coming out in favor of Palestine. It is most important for us to get as many people as we can to speak about this so that Israel knows it’s isolated in its action and will get increasingly isolated as time progresses. This is the 3rd Intifada and it is the duty of every muslim and every human being to do something. No big acts are required. Educate yourself on the issue and you will not be able to ignore it. Get a deep understanding. Become a volunteer. Donate Money. Voice your anger at injustice. Dedicate 10 minutes to it a day for as long as it takes. Tweet, socially network and whatever you do, don’t forget this ever. Don’t let the spark of this moment die. For Muslims, Allah is watching. For anyone else, your conscience will never forgive you for ignoring this. You won’t realize it now but Karma is taking note and your spirit will get heavier with every instance of you ignoring this.
Yes, I’m guilting you into this because if we stay quiet with something that we can easily voice our opposition to, then we will lose our voice if anything like this happens to us. We are all connected. Out of sight doesn’t mean out of mind. For the 10 kids in #Gaza who died in a park on Eid day.
We are with you #Gaza.
