    Your were originally a christian convert right or am I confusing you with someone else?

    Anyways never mind, how do you like it in England-hows school and social life? Do people respond negatively or positively to your ethnicity, or rather do you witness any discrimination AT ALL in the diverse streets of London?

    Yep thats me.
    England is nice but way different to back home (of course it is)what am i on about
    People usually ask me loads of questions about being Palestinian, so i would say positive even though ive had negative ones.
    ive only been discriminated once in London but its better than everyday by the Israelis back home.

    Yes your correct about occupation. after my dad died, my dad friend took me in and after living in the streets in Jerusalem (the most peaceful place on earth) for around a month, he took me to Rafah and got me over to Egypt and around a month later, i appealed for asylum in England and got accepted.

    (My dad was very popular so he had many contacts and had this plan for me to escape for ages. god bless him)

    I'm so sorry you had to go through so much at such a young age. Your father (God rest his soul <3) and his friend sound like incredible men, glad you got here safely
