Asmaa Alghoul's Rebel in Gaza

When we were children one of our favorite games was Arabs and Jews. Some would hide while the others looked for them. In general the boys were the Jews and we, the girls, the Arabs. Because the Jews were stronger and more brutal. No one thought about what that meant, we weren't interested in politics, the important thing was to have fun. We really loved that game, in general we played it out in the street—when there was no curfew that is.
