The Dual Narrative is a form of narrative that describes a story in two different perspectives, usually two different people. It is used to show parallels or emphasize differences in the experiences or points-of-view of different places and time periods. Why does a writer choose to use a dual narrative? Usually it is to show parallels between the two storylines (and time periods) and to enrich the reading experience with alternate points-of-view. In this essay I want to di...

The sight of schoolchildren filing into classrooms across Gaza last week was a welcome sign that in one respect at least, life in the territory is returning to some kind of normality after a traumatic summer of conflict and bloodshed. Pupils at the privately-run American International School in Gaza were back in class a week before the new academic year even began. Staff said they wanted to find a way of helping the children get back into a routine as soon as possible, so that...


In an exclusive interview with "Humanitarian's Manifesto", a community powered initiative, Dr. Akihiro Seita of UNWRA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) explains the role of mother & child unit at UNRWA health centers, especially in dealing with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in children & adolescents. He also describes the affects of Israel-Palestine conflict on economy, mental health of men and particularly domestic v...

As I walked down the normally tranquil Kensington High Street, I noticed something rather unusual. The street was no longer tranquil and quiet. Instead you could hear chanting, something along the lines of "1. 2. 3. 4. Occupation no more. 5. 6. 7. 8. Israel is a terror state." Now for your average shopper this can be quite surprising, but the message hundreds of thousands of Londoners were trying to get across is that what Israel is doing is wrong. The murder of innocent Palest...

BOOM! The building is falling, surrounded by fire. You don't know where to go, you think about your family but the whole city is on fire, and there's no saving them. No last goodbyes, No I love you's. Nothing! Just a painful, fearful death. Your kids might be wondering, "Why isn't dad here to save us?" But you are too far to even see them for the last time. And you'll think "What did I do to deserve a death like this?" I can't imagine myself in that situation, and neither can y...

How do you console a child who has become a victim of war? How does one console a child who has lost almost everything - from her parents, friends,home, limbs etc. in a war that she understands nothing about? It is heart breaking to see children as young as one month wail helplessly in Gaza hospitals with injuries incurred after someone threw a missile to them. It is even choking to see a lifeless body of a child who can't defend himself or herself lay by the roadside or in...

Traumatised by the daily display on our news-screens I took it upon myself to do the only thing I knew I had the power to do, which is to voice my opinion. Last night, the video portraying a young boy lying lifeless on a hospital bed in Gaza, the doctors opening his limp lids to pupils fixed and dilated, was deeply disturbing. This image will forever be implanted in by mind and never forgotten, but we individuals can stop this in its footsteps. This is an article prompted by that i...

Children of Gaza strip must be asking their mothers,'Who are trying to kill us? Palestine? Israel? Egypt?' but simply the answer is 'Humans killing humans'. For just a stupid political reason, around 1800 people are already dead and more than 9500 are wounded. Israel is killing Palestinians but why don't they see that they are 'humans' more than just a 'Palestinian'. Why is Israel continuing its assault even after they know that innocent people are being killed? Just because Isra...

How can we just sit around and do nothing? America, do something! President Obama, take action! Formerly, I supported our President with blind hopes thinking that he would revolutionize the way the Untied States has approached foreign policy since the atrocities of the 1960s and beyond. However, much to my chagrin and dismay (also, on behalf of the many citizens in this country who agree with me), the United States has yet to lift a finger concerning the conflict in the Middle East...
