Yesterday, my dear friend Wedad Yassin was denied entry and banned from Palestine when trying to re-enter through Jordan. She is now separated from her parents and siblings, and will soon return to Chicago. No explanation was given. Her friends and family have no idea why she was banned from her homeland.

How long will we allow the Israeli regime to deny indigenous Palestinians entry at their whim? How long will we allow them to continue tearing apart families?

I hope this makes us all even more determined to Free Palestine.

Inshallah, we will return home.
