Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah

Congratulations to our sisters and brothers in Palestine! We rejoice with you in this long overdue and much contested victory which you clearly deserved.

As reported at four hours ago, The United Nations "voted overwhelmingly to recognize Palestine as the world's 194th state".

We rejoice in this victory together with the 138 countries who voted in favor of Palestine. We rejoice in people's choice for peace, fairness and respect for people's dignity. 

"The moment has arrived for the world to say clearly:
Enough of aggression, settlements and occupation."
- President Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian National Authority
29 Nov 2012

We were indeed delighted to be one of nearly 1.8 million people who signed a petition in support of the state of Palestine. And million others who have planted the seed of hope for freedom, peace and prosperity for the Palestinians.

With every hardship comes ease.

Mabruk Palestine!
Jumaah Mubarrak!
