“Nothing makes sense, why should I?”
Suad Amiry, Nothing to Lose But Your Life: An 18-Hour Journey With Murad

“A thousand times a coward and not once a dead man”
Suad Amiry, Nothing to Lose But Your Life: An 18-Hour Journey With Murad

“Fucker, I though to myself. So irritated by a stare!
I wonder what your reaction would have been if you had lived under occupation for as many years as I had, or if your shopping rights, like all of your other rights, were violated day and night, or if the olive trees in your grandfather's orchards had been uprooted, or if your village had been bulldozed, or if your house had been demolished, or if your sister could not reach her school, or if your brother had been given three life sentences, or if your mother had given birth at a checkpoint, or if you had stood in a line for days in the hot August summers waiting for your work permit, or if you could not reach your beloved ones in Arab East Jerusalem....
A stare, and you lose your mind!”
Suad Amiry, Sharon and My Mother-in-Law: Ramallah Diaries
