‘Are Palestinians hostages, Mummy?’

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Compassionate.

Daniel and I were watching a news coverage of the Viva Palestina aid convoy situation in Egypt. He asked me, as I was explaining the Palestinian conflict, this question;

‘Are the Palestinians hostages, Mummy?’

I started to say no but as I thought about it, I realised Daniel hit the issue right on the nail. The Palestinians are hostages! It took the perspective of a child to uncover the true reality of the situation in Palestine.
