I’m making plans to travel to Gaza later this summer.
After the puzzled looks, the first question my family and friends ask me is “Why Gaza?”
Answering that question is not so easy, I’ve learned. At least it’s not easy to communicate. My heart knows why I’m going.
So I’m setting up this blog to begin the process of answering that question.
لماذا يا غزة؟
Why Gaza? is a double entendre.
Why is Gaza occupied? Why is Gaza seemingly hidden from view? – at least for many Americans. Why is Gaza “off-limits” as a travel destination? – at least according to the US Embassy in Cairo.
These and many others questions will be shared in this blog. And my goal is to find some of the answers.
