The sad story of Haya , Julia and Sama

Haya , Julia and Sama
Those beautiful girls are called : Haya , Julia and Sama. They are sisters. Palestinian refugees who were born in Syria. Their family fled Syria after the revolution turned in to a war seeking better life in Egypt.
Facing with double bitter reality mixed with racism, their parents decided to emigrate illegally escaping from Egypt seeking safe place in Europe unfortunately.
Haya , Julia and Sama drowned on Friday in the Mediterranean near the shores of Alexandria among the 12 Syrian and Palestinian that were drowned in the illegal immigration boat incident.
I do not know what to say except that I am sorry, I am sorry that the Syrians and Palestinians have to suffer in Egypt. I am sorry that we are not helping them to live in dignity in our country. I am sorry that they had to die like this.
The agony of the refugees from Syria is doubled for the Palestinian refugees as unlike other refugees they do not have UNRWA in Egypt to help them. This is of course besides racism against Palestinians in Egypt nowadays.
These refugees are ready to die in the sea just to get hell out of Egypt , can you just imagine how it feels ? Already we got our own youth who are ready to do the same and they are doing it !!
If Europe does not want these refugees and the Egyptian regime does not want them too then I think the EU , Egypt , UN , UNRWA and UNHCR should work out a solution for those refugees whether Syrian or Palestinian to have a proper way of living in dignity instead of throwing themselves to hell like that.
Now I want to say something about that disgusting racism and ultra-nationalism in Egypt towards Syrians and Palestinians.
With my all due respect Modern Egypt was not built by Egyptians only but it was also built by foreigners including amazing and wonderful Syrians, Palestinians and Lebanese that did not only a safe haven in Egypt but a place where they could not live only  but they also contributed to a great nation we brag about till this moment.
Go back and see who were the founders of the Egyptian major newspapers and printing houses , you would find them from Levant. Go back in history and see who were the artists and actors back then and you would find them from Levant. I do not need to say names because they are so many. 
All what I can say now is that the Egyptian people were more welcoming and more tolerant then despite they were poor and were not educated like now. That stupid Ultra-Nationalism is killing Egypt’s true soul.


  1. As a European I can only tell you, that people feel outrage about so many refugees dying while trying to escape. Syrians are recognized as entitled for asylum and should not have to resort to illegal risky boat trips. For Palestinians and Egyptians, however, I consider them as unwanted aliens,who are just after social benefits as offered by Germany and Scandinavian countries. We do not need such people in Europe.
    The suffering of Syrians and Palestinians in Egypt is certainly a result of the Government's propaganda labeling the MB and all Islamist organizations as terrorists. And of course all those terrorists killing policemen and soldiers in Sinai are coming from Gaza and are trained and linked to Hamas and other violent groups. The poor family who died such a tragic death, were certainly not threatened for their lives in Egypt. They left for economic reasons - wrong choice and very tragic. I wonder who makes a business from all that boat trips?

    1. As a European you read more like a Zionist. All life is precious in God's eyes, except Zionists. They are the reason for the troubles in the Middle East.

    2. Obviously you have no clue what a Zionist is. and until now it is Egyptian thuggery who organizes these boat trips.

  2. I could say, "This Sucks!" But, that isn't good enough. There are thousands of drownings, murders, and so on of refugees all over the world, but this is different because there are three faces of innocents, young little girls that should have a life. They should have been able to become, teachers, lawyers, doctors, maybe freedom fighters. NO! They are dead, drowned for no damn reason other than being in an unloving country with no moral values. I curse you.

  3. Jim Hyder, I don't understand what on earth you're saying. As so often, Zeinobia has made a brave, honest and passionate statement. What is it that you are trying to say about her comments?
