Despite the state’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law, Alexander is facing 60 years in prison for having fired a warning shot in 2012 to stop her abusive ex-husband from attacking her. The bullet fired by Alexander, a Black working-class mother, hit no one and caused no injury. Nonetheless, she was arrested, jailed and convicted — until a mass movement forced her conviction to be thrown out in late 2013. The state’s prosecutor, Angela Corey, decided to retry the case and has repeatedly slandered Alexander to the mass media and even in the state’s legislature. While the state’s persecution of Alexander continues, the movement to win her freedom has not gone away.
Bandleader Alex Turner is choking. Literally. While speaking on the subject in the lobby of New York’s Bowery Hotel last month, the singer mistakenly inhales an almond— and is momentarily vexed. “Almonds can fuck off,” he says.
Today I learned that the little girl who was delivered from her dead mother’s body alive, after the mother was murdered by the Zionist Regime, died in hospital. To be honest, I was really sad and I had almost made dua that she grow up to know of her story and that she could be a miracle through this horrendous genocide of her people.
But nothing prepared me for when I learned how she died. She died because Israel bombed the only power plant in Gaza, that was supplying electricity to the incubator that was keeping her alive.
SubhanAllah, may Allah crush the zionist regime, and may they rot in Hell forever.

Innah lillah wa innah ilaihi rajiuun. She will not die in vain, iA.
