The message of the Gaza protests is that Palestinians are human beings. When I saw the "rest in peace" posts on his Facebook page, I felt sick. It was on social media where I first learned about the death of Palestinian community organizer Ahmed Aladini, a man from my hometown, Deir al-Balah, who, like me, lived in Gaza.
