I'm proud of all these ladies, inspite of the Izzraeli prison conditions they do what they can. I hope you'll be free one day. ** Remember South Africa was also once an Appartheid state . . . أنا فخور بكل هؤلاء السيدات ، بغض النظر عن ظروف سجن عزاريلي ، يفعلون ما بوسعهم. أتمنى أن تكون حراً يوماً ما تذكر أن جنوب إفريقيا كانت أيضًا دولة أبارتيد. . . ** אני גאה בכל הגברות האלה, למרות תנאי הכלא הישראליים, הן עושות מה שהן יכולות. אני מקווה שתהיה חופשי יום אחד. זכור דרום אפריקה היתה גם פעם מדינת אפרטהייד. . .
