Standard

I came to know of this from a blog i follow What Am I میں کیا ہوں ۔ ۔ ۔ ۔ ۔

Peled-Elhanan is the mother of Smadar Elhanan, 13 years old when she was killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem in September 1997. Below is Nurit’s speech made on International Women’s Day Hel on 08 March, 2005 in Strasbourg

Nurit Peled-Elhanan:

Thank you for inviting me to this today. It is always an honour and a pleasure to be here, among you (at the European Parliament). However, I must admit I believe you should have invited a Palestinian woman at my stead, because the women who suffer most from violence in my county are the Palestinian women.
