Not sure what to say?

Thank you for sharing this, and for telling your story. May your mother rest in peace and may justice be served... Andrew

Dear Saed, after meeting you in Nablus, hearing about your mum. seeing and more importantly, feeling for myself what occupation means - the only word that comes close is "obscene" and I feel ashamed to be part of the west that permits this to continue. We must spread the word every way we can.

After meeting Saed in Nablus in November 2009 and hearing about the horrific circumstances of his mother's death, I felt compelled to visit this website in her honour.

Words alone cannot express my feelings.

My deepest condolences and warmest sympathies to Saed and his family.

Dear Saed and Family - always thinking about you. With great memories.

We remember you always and we dont forget your family.
Regards from Dr. Al Muaket and family from Spain

having met Saed in Belfast on an academic tour, i was impelled to look at the website dedicated to his mother, and found the whole episode very moving and one that will have a profound effect on me.

Dear Saed & family
My thoughts and prayers are with you today on the sixth anniversary of the brutal taking of your beloved Shaden's life. She will never be forgotten.

Remembering your family with love and prayer. May God keep you, comfort you, and bring healing to your hearts and lives.

Your Friend Always,

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
