A Word from Moira's Sister

Moira Jilani
East Jerusalem, Palestinian Territories

May 18, 2012 — On June 11, 2010, my nieces lives were forever changed when their father, Ziad Jilani, was shot and killed in Israel by police/military in an area of Jerusalem. After what has been a harrowing time for my sister and nieces, there is a chance that the person who fired the fatal shots will escape any conviction for their actions; that Ziad’s life does not matter and can be disregarded. So I am writing to you on behalf of my nieces, and for all parentless children who have endured their loss, NO MORE. Ziad was college-educated, a humanitarian to all who he knew, and a person who prayed for a better world for his children. He was looking forward to taking his girls to dinner on June 11, 2010 – instead he was buried. This is his story and I implore you to watch the brief video of his life, their life and Ziad’s last moments alive.
