Huda's Cry for Palestine

Richard Marsden, The Business of Emotions

Some truths can be revealed only through bodies and faces.

The muscles which give them expression contain emotional memories, of individuals and their social milieu.

When these memories are released, they render the written word trite.

So it was when 10-year-old Huda Ghalia screamed in grief over the remains of her family. Seven of them were killed by an Israeli shell as they enjoyed a picnic on a Gaza beach, June 9th, 2006. They were:

Ilham (7)
Hanadi (2)
Sabreen (3)
Haithem (one year)
her mother (26)
her father(45) 
her step mother (25)

Huda Ghalia will be scarred for life by this experience. She is not alone.

As a result of the Israeli military operations:

  • 97 per cent of Palestinian children show signs of psychological disturbances and depression
  • 94 per cent of Palestinian children have witnessed funerals
  • 95 per cent have seen live shooting
  • 62 per cent have seen family members and relatives shot or killed.

What is unique about Huda is that the terrible scene that destroyed her family life—"What have I done wrong to live without my parents?"—was recorded by a Palestinian cameraman and has been seen throughout the Arab world.

The video of the scene can be seen here. If it doesn't move you to tears, there's something wrong with you.

Huda's screams, her body twisted in grief thrown down next to her dead father, express the pain of generations of Palestinians. They have been evicted from their land by the State of Israel, which promptly appropriated it.

All the while the world looked on with studied indifference, terrified of appearing to be anti-Semitic.

Huda clearly knew what had happened and who was responsible. There was an air of normalcy and inevitability about the scene. It wasn’t just a little girl’s grief that crumpled her body, it was the hopelessness of the Palestinian people.

That, I think, is how the Arab world experienced that video. Many families have been destroyed by Israel. It holds approximately 10,000 Palestinian prisoners of war in detention camps.

Among them are hundreds of women and their children, not unlike Huda.

The emotions stirred by that video were a powerful motive to secure their release. It was to negotiate their release the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the Popular Resistance Committees and the Islamic Army captured the 19-year old Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit from a post just outside of Gaza.

And that, we are asked to believe, is why Israel has laid siege to Gaza.

The United States—which paid for the shell which killed Hudas' family—was the only major country to not condemn the Israeli attack.

View the video. That's what terrorism looks like.
