I am happy and grateful that Newman has allowed me to have this be my first article for our blog, as I feel very strongly about this young and courageous female Palestinian Partisan who has such Self-Empowerment in her eyes, the eyes of Auto-Determination, the eyes of Revolution, the eyes of Solidarity.
