Last week was quite hectic for us when Mavi Marmara was attacked by the Israelis. Mujahid's father a.k.a. my father-in-law was one of the activists @ volunteer on that freedom flotilla.
Suspense was indeed in the air as I watched the news on al-Jazeera and a Turkish online website, as we all waited for Abah to call home - if he is still safe and sound. Alhamdulillah, Allah knows best, a couple of days later the Israelis let free the 12 Malaysians who were on Mavi Marmara. As you all had already known, they were sent to Jordan. Abah called home.
Several weeks back, Mujahid had asked me to translate his CV to join the cause. Sorry Abang I really had to hesitate because I was so not ready to raise our baby alone for now, not even for a couple of days, in addition to some other reasons.. It's not "never" it's just "not yet".. inshaAllah..
Anyways, on Tuesday 1st June 2010, Ikram Fakhri went off for his first demonstration for Palestine. Being the youngest demonstrator of the day, he slept soundly in his carrier despite the heat and the noise - which he actually loved.
Mujahid and I had planned to bring him along for the big demonstration on Friday but after some last minute consideration we decided to leave baby Ikram at home..
Oh by the way, Ikram Fakhri & Baba was on TV3 on Sunday, the day Tok Abah Hasan came back. They were also in the local newspaper on Monday. Ikram with Datin Rosmah :P not something to be proud of, but it is an experience to be recorded.

All newspapers gave wrong info, eithor Ikram Fakhri's name was wrongly spelled or his age was said to be 18 months. It's so illogical.. A 1-and-a-half year boy couldn't be that small..
