RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Two of President Mahmoud Abbas' grandchildren gave letters to the US president during his visit to Ramallah on Thursday.

Firas wrote that 168 Palestinian children were in Israeli prison, including 15 of Malia's age and 20 of Sasha's age, referring to Barack Obama's children.

"Please get them out. Make Israel stop arresting kids," the 10-year-old wrote.


Ziad, 14, wrote that Palestinians have been fighting for freedom for 65 years.

"Mr President, this occupation that we're under is the last occupation in the whole world. Your Excellency, we have a dream too and this is why we're here today."

Ma shah Allah, may Allah bless them & all of the children of Palestine. They have all spoken out so eloquently of their support for others, for Palestine, and of their hopes & aspirations for the future, whilst still witnessing & enduring such hardship. Thank you for sharing these letters. The children of Palestine are the future of the world, hopefully it will be a better world than that which their parents & forebearers have seen.

Bravo kids! You speak a moral truth as brave children always do uncorrupted by special agenda's. Take your children to GAZA,Obama! Let Sasha &Malia SEE how you make their equals live under Israel's blockade of LAND SEA & AIR! You can show them the pock-marks in Jewish-only "settler"roofs,BOMB shelters,sidewalks & swimming pools! But AFTER,you show them the MOONSCAPE DESTRUCTION,left in Gaza by US-WEAPONS dropped on 1.7 MILLION trapped Gaza CIVILIANS,4 daring 2 CHALLENGE oppression & FIGHT BACK!

"Please get them out. Make Israel stop arresting kids" Good letters from Ziad and Faris to the POTUS. They could also have written to Malia and Sasha and Daddy could have delivered them (though maybe there's some protocol about that). Good letters.
