A Palestinian must watch!
Seven Songs of Becoming is made in Palestine and Norway. This is a cycles of seven short-films about communicating in spite of cultural conflicts, war and deprivation. The Palestinian poet Fadwa Tuqan is an important voice in this cycles. Tuqan is considered as one of the greatest Arab pioneering, contemporary poets. Accidentally, I found this short-film when I was doing one of the assignments in the Photojournalism class for this year, I found it between the hands of one of the most compelling composers in Palestine, Rami Washaha. The nest photo exhibition will be showing this great character who absolutely inspired me and changed my life.
I hope you all will like it, feel free to share comment and discuss this with me. Special thanks to Rami Washaha who opened my eyes to a whole new world.

The World’s Arabic Language day is on Dec. 18, wherein, it’s a UN holiday that was designed as an annual celebration to “promote multilingualism and cultural diversity, as well as celebrate Arabic language’s role in and contribution to the safeguarding and dissemination of human civilization and culture”:
The 18th was chosen as the date for World Arabic Language Day (WALD), as it’s “the day in 1973 when the General Assembly approved Arabic [singular] as an official UN language.” All this is fair enough. But if we’re celebrating multilingualism and cultural diversity, there’s no better place to start than with the Arabics.
Starting today, in Egypt, there will be two events celebrating WALD:
On Dec. 16, the General Egyptian Book Organization is also holding a seminar entitled “The Arabic language in the Arab media.”
On Dec. 17, the Egyptian National Library and Archives will facilitate a conference called “The Problems of Arabic Language and the Issues of the Future.”
In the Emirates, they’ll wait until Dec. 18:
The ”Bel Arabi” initiative, to promote the use of Arabic in social media, will kick off at midnight
Also, in India:
Kerala to host slew of events for ‘UN Arabic Language Day’ celebrations
This is the third cyber photo exhibition. This one speaks about Palestinian resistance in the Palestinian village Al Nabi Saleh. Al Nabi Saleh is a Palestinian village located north west Ramallah and has a population of 550 residents. It was named after the prophet Saleh, one of the five Arab prophets mentioned in Al Quran. Al Nabi Saleh village is known for its weekly action with the Israeli soldiers. As in, every Friday the people of Al Nabi Saleh, Palestinians from other cities, journalists and activists start a weekly protest objecting Israeli occupation and Israeli settlements. But, each and everyone of these protests is suppressed by Israeli weapons, such as: Gas bombs, shotguns, sewage water and many more.
This post aims at introducing Palestinian villages to the world, their suffering and their resistance.
I hope you enjoy my photography and documentation.

“I am from the love of my family.
I am from my mom, my dad, my grandmother, and my grandfather.I am from sweet baked cakes, homemade cornbread, and all the smells of the world..” (I am from, The Hands of God. Rose M. de Leon).

makes another right on time,
He bakes it up and turns it round,
yet here it’s smaller, less straight sound” (A Baker’s Line by Kevin Maroney).
