Israel’s War Against Palestine: Documenting the Military Occupation of Palestinian and Arab Lands

Rami Elhanan: a call for help

8 July 2010

By Rami Elhanan, via email – 8 July 2010

Dear friends:

At the end of this month, my brother Bassam Aramin, the persistent Combatant
for Peace, was meant to gather his few possessions and go with his family to
Bradford University in the UK, to complete his masters in Conflict

I can not stress enough the importance of this journey for the Aramin
family, after all the suffering they have been through. I believe it is
necessary for them to go and a window of opportunity for a dramatic change
towards a more hopeful future for bassam, Salwa and the kids.

Unfortunately,  there is still £20,000 needed, despite considerable efforts
to insure the daily needs of the family are met whilst in the UK. This is
essential for the success in Bassam’s studies. I think it shouldn’t be too
difficult to raise this amount, if all those who are friends with, love,
support or admire this noble family, will donate £10,20,50 or more to this
cause. To contribute towards a more rosy future.

This is a personal request from myself to you and on a personal basis and
not political or ideological one. I think we need to do everything in our
power in order for the Aramin family to benefit from a better future, after
all its been through. This dear gentleman deserves all the help he can get
from his friends and acquaintances from the region and around the world.

So come on, we can do it!
