  10. Another stranger wishing you well, and that you are out of the hospital soon. Sadly courage costs dearly, sometimes.

  16. Dear Emily,
    I am a Turkish journalist. All through yesterday and the night, had been writing reports on the developments. Then, when the first rays of light shined in my room through the linen curtains and my eyes were closing, i came across your story...
    if you are a journalist in middle east, you become somewhat accustomed to these kind of stories. still, i was liberated from all the professional alienation, moved...
    do not know what to say.
    would you please drop me a few words when you get well:
    here in turkey, we generally ask people if they need anything in these situations. however, i am sure that the palestinian people do not leave you alone there.

  17. Dear Emily

    I'm so sorry, I'm sure one day, those responsible for your pain and Palestine's long sorrow will be punished.

    Get well soon

  18. Dear Emily , get well soon!
    I hope this unfortunate event won't bring you down , but will make you even stronger than what you are. Thank you for being there, and acting against injustices! I sincerely hope you get well soon, and continue your beautiful art work!!!
    From Russia

  19. Thank you for sticking up for your principles.

    I hope you recover soon.

  20. I just heard about you today in The Guardian and I would like to say what a great human being you are in your desire to help an oppressed fellow human being. I pray and hope you to get better.

  21. get well soon, shoutout from germany!

  22. Dear Emily,

    I am really touched about what happened. It is a shame.
    You are one of my heroes.
    Let me express my feelings in my own language - and maybe one day I can translate it:

    Eu sinto muito pelo que aconteceu. Estou absolutamente comovido. Fica com todo o meu carinho - e eu queria muito poder estar perto e te dar um abraço.
    Eu tenho vergonha do mundo em que vivo.

    Com amor,

    (From Brazil/Scotland)

  23. Querida Emily:
    tengo una hija de tu edad...
    Eres muy valiente y el mundo necesita personas generosas como tú que hacen de él un lugar mejor, más habitable y pacífico.
    Gracias por tu presencia en la manifestación, por tu trabajo.
    Lamento mucho tu herida. Cuídate mucho y continúa luchando con la misma fuerza e ilusión.

    Con mucho efecto, te envío un beso.

    Mar (Hipatia)

  24. It is difficult to express my feelings at what has happened but I know that the world would be worse off without people like you and the rest of the others on board those ships.

    All the best with your continuing work.

    Brussels, Belgium

  25. Dear Emily
    Jesus fuck I am sorry for what they have done to you. I am a fellow cartoonist who cares for Palestine and I promise that you are never alone and we will all keep making art, you and I and millions around the world until all people are free.

    Love from NYC,

  26. These days I cannot believe my eyes. I cannot believe how irrational people can be. I'm scared.

    Please keep your spirit, be strong.
    I hope they will not go unpunished once again, as they always do. Yet I know I'm naive.

    Best wishes from Belgium

  27. Take care. Sending love and solidarity from Wisconsin.

  28. Everyone around the world considers you to be a heroine after what you were willing to sacrifice for a just cause. I pray that after this incident, America will adjust their political activity in the region appropriately. inshAllah khair. Get well soon. You are appreciated around the world.

    I hope the best for your family as well, I can only imagine the emotional rollercoaster one takes after these events.

    Barak Allahu feeki.

  29. Dear Emily,

    I am so sorry to hear about your terrible injury. Your bravery is not in vain. The violence inflicted on you is a sign of the grotesque nature of occupation.

    I am touched by your exquisite artistic creativity. I pray that you may still be able to find solace and enjoyment in this gift for many years to come. I pray for healing.

    you are really, really brave.
    hope you do well from now on,
    take care!

    hugs from Spain :)

  31. Hey Emily
    I just want to wish you all the best, hope you recover well so you can continue to show all your strength to the world.
    Keep your spirit high and know that millions of us are with you.

    Best wishes and kisses from a comrade and friend here in Portugal

  32. Hugs from England.
    Hard to be coherent. Wishing you well.

  33. Emily,

    Best wishes and solidarity from a fellow New Yorker.

  34. Emily,

    I hope you recover soon! This story will not go unnoticed over here!

    -a neighbor at NYU

  35. All the best - you've got my support and sympathy.

    Your art work is good - here's hoping that's not too badly affected and you can use their hatred against them.

  36. Incredibly sorry to hear what happened, hope you the best of recovery.

    And sorry if its inappropriate, but your art's amazing! It's inspired me to get back to the pencil after all these years.

  37. Emily, I hope you recover soon.

    Much love from Melissa & Thomas

    - Sweden

  38. Dear Emily,

    Just another one who wish you quick recovery.
    I am very touched by your story and your bravery. Wish the world has more people like you, it would be much better place.

    keep your spirits and keep fighting for your believes.

    Wish to meet you one day in person.

  39. You and your artwork are beautiful.

    Speedy and safe recovery. Im thinking of your family...

  40. No words can describe your stand on this cause. Wish you a speedy recovery

    Peace and blessings

  41. Emily...much support and respect from Oakland, CA. Get well soon.

  42. Dear Emily,

    I'm so sorry to hear what happened to you. I think everyone who has read your story was angered over Israel's violent actions and touched by your dedication to Palestinian rights.

    Please know that the world is not deaf. That many of us know your pain and are with you.

    Katia D, Toronto, ON

  43. Dear Emily,

    I don't know you, but we share a few things: an alma mater, a love of art, feeling the weight of injustice. But, God, you're a good deal braver than I am. Be well. Recover soon.

    Marco, Brooklyn, NY

  44. Dear Emily,

    You are doing what many of us only dream of doing - truly standing up for our beliefs - I admire you for that.

    You are a beautiful and brave soul and I wish you strength.

    all the best

  45. Emily,

    Too bad you lost your eye, I lost one of my eyes once, due to an aggravated parrot (fucking bird), kind of know how you feel. But hey accidents do happen. We are going to teach those damn Czechs a thing or two about a thing or two.

  46. Emily,

    My wishes, thoughts, love, and prayers are with you right now. I hope only the best for you, a speedy healing process, and that your injury, the injury of others, and the deaths are not in vain.

    Take care always,


  47. Just another person thinking of you, hoping for your recovery, and recognizing that you're a hero. All of us here in New York stand with you.

  48. your sacrifice will not go unrewarded ... rewards will come in time in strange and unexpected ways ... always be true to yourself and you will see with more than eyes

  49. Dear Emily--I hope your recovery is smooth, and that you heal easily in body and mind. Your vision is so wide, deep and true that no objects of hate can destroy it. Abiding best wishes to you and yours, L.

  50. Many good wishes. Your courage is remarkable, and a fine example to the rest of us.

  51. Get well soon Emily!

    As many others have said, your courage is inspiring. You have put into practice what many of us are not brave enough to do ourselves. You are a true hero to me.

  52. Dear Emily!
    I have felt your pain! Thank you so much for doing what you have been doing for palestinians, for innocent, for tortured and killed and for us (non-activists yet)as well! It is because of people like you that we learn about there injustices. And we will rise and we will affect our governments... You are a beautiful person, because you are capable of seeing things and feeling things through your heart!!! You are trully special! Please please don't get discouraged!Bad things happen in life, but we overcome them to become stronger ! PLease get well soon phyically and emotionally, and continue your activism and you beautiful art paintings! Remember Degas had one eye and has produced amazing paintings.
    Very warm regards from London,
    Vilena (Russia)

  53. I'm so sorry about what they did to you, and for all the other victims of that brutal regime. Hopefully one day, thanks in part to your brave sacrifice, the "Might is Right" immorality of Israel's government will be replaced with something more humane. Get well soon!

  54. now you can put your burka on and no one will know you are missing an eye.

  55. I hope you get well and can keep painting!
    stay defiant!

  56. Emily.

    Wanted to wish you a quick recovery. Your story is very sad.
    I'm not sure why you chose to be there, as an American citizen, why not Afghanistan or Iraq?
    but I respect your choice as long as you didn't take an active part in any violent event.

    All the best!
    I hope the people who did this to you will be punished.

    Yoni, Israel

  57. I hope for your complete recovery and that you continue to create great art, standing up for your beliefs and inspiring others. I believe you are one who truly sees with her heart. Please don't let this experience change that.

    San Francisco, CA

  58. I hope the damage is curable , my prayer goes to you.

  59. just today i read about israili soldier's attack on you. get well soon. and be courgeous as you was before. go on

  61. My dear Emily,
    While this will probably not be much comfort the rest of us in the arts community are thinking about you tonight and hoping for your swift recovery. While you ave suffered the wound it is all of us who were attacked and it's time this never happens again. Rest well and come back to us.


  62. Dear Emily,
    Your work is beautiful.
    I'm sorry about what happened.
    Get well soon!

  63. I thank GOD you didn't end up another "Rachel Corrie" - Sending my love, I'm PROUD OF YOU.
    Teresa & Jude

  64. Wishing you a speedy recovery from Hong Kong xxx

  65. Hey ShonAndSedona,
    It is really disrespectful of you to praise a Country which took her Eye. May God punish you and haters like you who carry on these atrocities.

  66. Best of luck towards a speedy recovery.

  67. She did not need that eye anyway lol, and may Allah kiss me right on my behind!

  68. People are going to try and get their digs in about politics or what they believe - but the important thing is that you recover and keep making art.

    Literally the only things that matter on the appropriate scale.

  69. I wish you for speedy recovery.

  70. After reading some of these posts, I have to ask myself, Who left the door open at the looney farm? Confucius says if you play with terrorists, you might get blown up. The Israelis have every right to defend themselves. You morons probably think we owe an apology to the Taliban for dropping a few bombs on their heads.

  71. from one art student to another: you've still got one good eye. keep making work. keep fighting. thank you for putting things in perspective; reminding me why art is relevent and important. i really hope you get better very soon. your work (both what you do and what you make) is really powerful, really has the potential to change things. your story has really had an effect on me and i wish you the best in everything you do.

  72. Dearest Emily,
    Get better soon dear! Everyone here thinks and talks about you, we all love you dearly!!!
    it's my first time on your blog and i'm so happy to see how productive you've been. i love you and your work and your amazing work ethic!
    I want you back very very soon.
    love always,

  73. This comment has been removed by the author.

  74. Emily
    What a beautiful creative mind you have- such wonderful art is a joy to behold. Get better and come and visit us in the UK!

  75. I'm sorry that so many people had to come across your work and admire it right at this moment but I am glad that they have because your work deserves their admiration. Masha above me there is not exaggerating when she says you're in everyone's thoughts.

  76. "Play with the bull and you'll get hooked by the horns..."

  77. While you are obviously a talented person who suffered a loss, I can't help but wonder why you would help a cause that allows the indiscriminate launching of rockets at innocents in Israel.

    But for the grace of God all of my family would have died in the concentration camps. I stand with Israel.

  78. She had it coming. You can't go protesting something like that and not expect to get hit in the face. Israelis are the only ones stopping the terrorists (You know...the "freedom fighters" who kill their own people). Maybe if everybody stepped up on the matter like the Israelis did we wouldn't have this problem in the first place. Instead of actually helping out Hamas. Fucking idiots...

    Anyway I'm sorry to hear about your eye. Nice artwork.

  79. I blogged about your incident here: Lagniappe's Lair

    I do hope that you get well soon, and please--stay out of other people's fights from now on.

  80. HI Emily,
    I'm trying to reach you for an interview for the Jewish Forward newspaper. Could you send me a note and let me know how you can be reached?

  81. Be well Emily, thank you for all you do.

  82. Get well soon, Emily. You are a true hero. Please ignore the cruel and hateful comments from the cowards. As you can see, the people wishing you well far outnumber them. Thank you for being the amazing person that you are. I hope to one day being as half as brave as you are.

  83. Hey Emily can you tell your terrorist friends not to leave threatening comments on my blog? Let me remind you that I think Sean Penn from Bad Boys was some of the best acting ever, so I'm on your side in a weird way.

  84. Emily,

    You define womanhood for me: beautiful, smart, courageous and kind. I am proud that you represent Washington, D.C. Love will always conquer hatred.

    We need for your story to get out to expose Israel's lies.

    Takoma Park

  85. Lots of love and hugs to you Emily, very sorry to hear of your injury. FWIW, a lot of the really cool, groundbreaking film directors from the 40's, 50's and 60's only had one eye and still directed a lot of visually stylish and influential films, I think John Ford, Andre de Toth and a few others (the latter even did a 3D flick or two). Your paintings are cool and so are you, and brave too. xx best wishes from Melbourne, Australia.

  86. Best wishes for a strong and rapid recovery Ms. Henochowicz. Your artwork is truly fantastic and your bravery and idealism deeply admirable.

    "Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them." -Dalai Lama

  87. Emily, I hope the inner strength and beauty that comes pouring out through your art carries you through this difficult time. Thank you for your courage and your deep commitment to peace. There are so many New York Jews that used to be part of a progressive force for justice who have chosen to turn a blind eye to Israel's human rights atrocities. I am not a religious person but I believe those Jews have abandoned the tradition of who we once were as a people and who we must be again. In this moment of great personal suffering, I hope you can find some comfort that a movement here in New York City and around the world loves you and honors you for what you have done. Jeannette Gabriel

  88. Emily,
    Your art is fabulous, more importantly you are clearly who stands up for what they believe in, a quality rare now and one that inspires. I wish you the best of luck and speediests of recoveries. I am so sorry this happened to you.

  89. Emily,

    I am very sorry to lose your eye. Get well soon and you are hero for people who support peace in the World. You are my hero, you are Palestinian children's hero.

  90. Hey Emily I hope you get well soon your art so amazing I'm really sorry you will be in heaven for sure

  91. Emily,

    Your courage is an inspiration to countless persons around the world, especially as you undergo a recovery that is impossible for me to imagine or fully comprehend. My sincerest condolences to you and your loved ones. We are with you in spirit and will continue to demand justice for the people of Gaza. Peace be with you.

  92. emily,

    i feel sorry for your injuries, and i hope you have a full recovery.

    but why dont you blog on how you ended up in the west bank

    how you lied to the customs agents when entering israel.

    how you were trained by the ism to lie, obfuscate and deceive.

    i do hope that you have a full that it will be much quicker for israel to deport you right back to america.

    your days of being an instigator are over.

    did you even spend one day in israel? spend any time with an israeli family? give of yourself to an israeli family who is in need of assistance? did you even care?

    did you visit with any israeli victims of arab terrorism?

    my god, did your parent even give you the basics of jewish life? do you know the aleph bet and where your people come from?

    this is such a sad story

    get well....and go home

  93. When you participate in a violent riot, you have to anticipate this kind of thing.

  94. Dear Emily,

    Like most others on here, I do not know you personally. One cannot imagine the pain you must be going through nor the sacrifice you gave. You stood by the victims to correct a world filled with injustice, only to suffer an equal injustice yourself. While no words can ever heal your pain, know this:

    This world is going to Hell in a bullet train, if not for people like you who are slowing it down and hopefully one day, turn it around.

    God speed, get well, and may God bless you.

    An Iraqi from Canada.

  95. Dear Emily,

    Thank you for doing what you did. Stay strong despite all the hatred, and never question the justice of your actions. You are a hero to many.

    PS. We're seriously like a decade away from robotic eyes. It might be a good idea to remain hopeful that this is a temporary problem.

  96. I don't know what I can say to you. I love your website and I admire you and am sorry for what happened to you. I hope to hear from you here about how you're doing and see more great work soon.

    Wash, DC

  97. Tonight at pottery class I will make something in your honor. Get better soon Emily!

  98. Dear Ms. Henochowicz,

    Nothing one can say can make up for the injury you've sustained. A humble "thank you" for your courage and humanity is all I can say.

    I hope you get well soon, and that you'd be able to get back to your wonderful art not letting this impede in anyway.


  99. Hey please tell your crazy people you defend to stop making threats on my blog. I am on your side Im a protester too, I am currently protesting the new Karate Kid movie because it is blasphemous to make a remake of such agreat original.

  100. Get well soon. Don't let the begrudgers let you down.

    Love from Ireland,


  101. Emily! We met in Al Walaja and Sheikh Jarrah, I'm a Canadian activist who went to Bil'in for a conference in April/May.
    I'm in Halifax, Canada now, and I'm just seeing your art work for the first time. It's very inspiring! I'm amazed at your bravery in front of the bulldozer in Al Walaja, in front of the settlers in Sheikh Jarrah and now at Qalandiya. Your bravery is now being shown around the world, and I think we're all very proud of you. This Saturday is a global day of action, and here in Halifax I'll be sure to talk about you to the people who stand in solidarity with Palestine. I also want to share with them your art work!
    hugs and love, david

  102. hi emily. i wanted to wish you well and thank you for keeping the fight alive.

  103. hi from italy. I'm sorry for my bad english. I hope best things for you and thanks a lot for all.


  104. Emily,

    Love and blessings to you. Your artwork is beautiful.


  105. Hi Emily, good people of the world, Muslim brothers and sisters. There are still some of us real Jews left in the world, even after the empire tortured us, hunted us, and murdered millions of us to make it seem like the only way to survive was for us all move to a ghetto in the land of our ancient home, and bind our identity to the political nation-state flag of modern "Israel." But there are still some of us that will never bow to fear, and will never agree to join a cycle of abuse, that love our fellow men more than anything, and serve only G-d, and not a flag. Our identity comes from G-d and serving him in kindness, compassion, and peace. We honour your strength. Yvarecht'cha Ad-nai V'Yishmerecha. Alhamdulillah. -Yael

  106. Thanks for the courage. Get well soon.

  107. Dear Emily:

    I am so sorry about what happened to you and I hope you feel better soon surrounded by the love of your family and friends.

    You are an extraordinary young woman and a hero. You have fantastic artistic promise, you are extremely privileged with your life in front of you and the world at your fingertips and yet you show so much bravery and compassion for others at such a young age.

    Get well soon. I suspect that there will be many others like me who really look forward to buying a piece of your inspirational and beautiful art. You are destined for greatness.

  108. Your art is beautiful. I know you'll ignore the haters who posted here. Thank you for your courage.

  109. Emily,

    Some people here and elsewhere have made cruel and callous remarks, but I hope that doesn't obscure the appreciation and regard the rest of us have for you.

    I've been following the Mideast tragedy for some years and, as some others have said, your story somehow broke through and moved me.

    You and the other members of the Solidarity Movement are true modern day heroes, people with the courage to stand up for what's right, courage I can't match.

  110. Emily,

    I don't know you, but I admire your courage, and wish you a speedy recovery.


  111. Emily, you are a creator and creation never passes away. It is destruction that is truly temporary. Get well soon. All the love we can send without it being creepy.

  112. Much love from Victoria, Canada

    love your art, love your drive.
    Get well soon.


  113. Dear Emily
    I heard of you yesterday at the drawing class.
    I hopefully you get better soon.
    I am praying for you.

  114. Dear Emily,

    I am totally shocked hearing about the disrespectful stupid action of Israel armies to the talented art civilian student like yourself and others as well.

    So sorry about the beautiful eye is gone. The whole world and I speechless and angry about what they had done to you. Be brave, get well and look forward to hear from you soon!xxx

  116. hy Emily i heard trough an italian friend Enzo, who's is an activist in palestina like you, what is happened to you.. i can understand expecially for an artist what means to lose the use of one eye... i'm with you with the cause you suppert in palestine, i'm totally shocked from the news i heard from people in palestine..
    big rispect
    best wishes
    from italy

  117. My suggestion to Emily and others who really want to feel useful in the world is that you join the Peace Corps. You'll have to actually do stuff, of course--they won't laud you for just standing on the edge and blogging, but at least you'll be able to say honestly that you were part of something good and made a difference.

    A day's worth of actual work on behalf of the poor and sick is worth years of just standing around pretending to be part of someone else's fight like you kids are doing in Israel. Sure, you consider yourselves to be brave, but seriously--you're bothering the Israelis for a reason: You know that they won't deliberately hurt you. If you were really fearless or self-sacrificing, you'd be protesting in Iran, North Korea or China on behalf of people who are really and truly oppressed. But that's not chic like fronting Israel off on behalf of the terrorist Hamas types, and it's really dangerous.

    I'd also suggest joining the US military if you really want a chance to help make the world a better place, but with that eye thing, that option's pretty much off the table.

    Heck, just come home, get a job, go to college, find a husband, and raise up some kids like a normal woman. Even now, there's some real nice guy out there whose laundry isn't going to wash itself.

  118. Emily, your artwork is beautiful. Stay strong, and don't let the bastards get you down. Get well soon.

    Love and Peace,

  119. Look, I'm not trying to be mean or anything here. I even have a tribute page set up for both Rachel Corrie and Emily.

    I do sympathize with her physical pain and wish her a speedy recovery. I just want her to stay out of trouble once she's well again.

  120. I hope you get well soon,

    I will be at the protests in London on the 5th - against the blockade, against the piracy and against the attack on you.

    In sympathy and solidarity,

    Robert Mclaren

  121. Dear Emily, thank you for your strength and courage. Stay strong.

  122. Dear Emily,

    Get well soon. I am really sorry about what happened to you. I am adoring your bravery and strength. You did something a lot of people can't dare do.

    They will pay for they did to you. The blockade will be end and we will be able to run with children in Gaza streets.

    You were not alone and you will not be alone.

    I am praying for you. Get well soon.

    Love and peace from Turkey,

    Yunus Emre.

  123. Dear Emily !

    Get well as fast as possible !!!
    I feel with you from bottom of my heart .

    My deep respect


  124. Hello Emily,

    I admire your bravery and resolve and am so sorry to hear about the injury these Israeli terrorists have caused you, I hope it’ll heal quickly. The day of reckoning will come, possibly not for the swine who shot at you, its Israel we are talking about, but for the murderous system this brutal apartheid state is operating with. Your endeavours in bringing an end to this inhumane situation in Palestine will not have been in vain.

    My thoughts are with you at this difficult time and if there is anything I from down here in Australia can do for you, please sing out.

    Best wishes,


  125. I heard what happened to you sister....much love...and thank you

  126. One love.

    Pay no attention to the neanderthals and other unquestioning supporters of violence and apartheid. Your stance was brave, and people the world over are praying for you, and for a peaceful resolution.

  127. Get well soon.

    May God bless you.

  128. You folks saying "God bless you" do realize that Emily has rejected God, don't you? Back in 2007, she even posted Youtube videos to denounce God as part of an internet organized blasphemy campaign and she spoke to the New York Times about it as well.

    "Emily Henochowicz, an 18-year-old who denied God with a wry smile in her video, is among those who find the videos an interesting way to talk through the issues of religion and faith.

    Ms. Henochowicz, who was raised as a Jew, said she began questioning the concepts of God and faith after the death of her grandfather a few years ago. A high school senior, she formerly attended a Hebrew school and prayed to God but felt unclear about what happened to someone after death.

    After much consideration, she decided to stop believing in “mysticism,” including God."

    Very sad. Pray that she wakes up and comes back around.

  129. The World is with you - and the World salutes you! You are a hero and a champion for your giving so much for the people of Gaza! Already, Israel is starting to change and your actions will cause a further change!

    God is with you!
    God bless you!

  130. "My dear young sister, you do us proud." I've posted about you, and a link to your blog, on my blog:

    As a Jew in solidarity with Palestine, I stand with you and wish you the best in your recovery. Thank you for your courage.

    Asking God to bless someone could mean guiding her to the righteous path. With that said, assuming what you say is true; an Atheist with a moral compass like Emily is a thousand times better than a person committing aggression in the name of God (no matter which Religion they belong to).

    God bless you Emily. Especially since you have the courage to stand against the injustice your own people are taking part in.

  133. People with sense and sensibility around the world wish you a speed recovery. There are many other fights in the future to battle with love, courage and art.

  134. Dear Emily

    I hope you will have a swift recovery. I applaud your efforts to stand up for what you believe in. You are an shining example for every one of us.

  135. man, there's some hateful bastards posting here.

    More power to you, Emily.

  136. I don't have words - this is so fucked. Sufficed to say, for now, that our thoughts are with you.

    PS: this is hardly the time, but you do phenomenal work! Hoping hoping hoping you're able to get back to it in time..

  137. Dear Emily,

    I'm terribly sorry to hear about what happened to you. You are a noble and courageous person, a true hero, and an inspiration to all those who fight for justice and human rights all over the world.

    I'm an Israeli peace activist, and I am deeply ashamed and horrified by the criminal actions of my government. I sincerely hope that your sacrifice will help to finally bring justice to the Palestinians, which will in turn lead to a just and lasting peace in Israel/Palestine.
    I also hope that you recover from your injuries as quickly as possible, and resume your wonderful artistic work.

    Wishing you all the best,

    -- Michael from Jerusalem

  138. Hi Emily,

    I've only heard about you from the news and I applaud you for your brave act in standing strong against them. They may take your eye but they can never take what truly matters, your beliefs.

    Godspeed in recovery and thank you for everything.

  139. Hi Emily,

    I hope you recover soon.

    Galatians 4:16 "Am I therefor become you enemy, because I tell you the truth?"

    PS. Please read what Dr. Benjamin Freedman, a Jew, has written about the Khazars and you would understand where I am going with this.

    God speed, God bless & Shalom!


  140. Emily,

    We all thank you for the conviction of your courage and wish you a speedy recovery.

    Victims of oppression all around the world salute you. Be strong, be courageous, be you!!!

    Zionism is not Judaism.


  141. Hey Emily,

    Palestinian children salute you! Heroes like you are their voice unto the world. Thank you for your courage. Please speak up and do not waiver.

    Get well soon. God Bless you!!! Peace!

  142. Emily,

    Thanks for taking a stand - many of us around the world were protesting with you. We continue to stand with the people of Palestine and with you.
    Stay strong, recover, keep up the work - both political and artistic.

    in solidarity,

  143. With all my appreciations for your courage.. All my admirations for your standing up voice.. All my envy for you to make your name to be allways remembered into the side of the humanity.. And with all my sadness for what happened, for what THEY did..
    I beg to you.. Please do never stop..
    Taylan Torin

  144. Dear Emily,

    Just wanted to add my voice to the many, many others who will be sending you love, prayers, and well-wishes through this ordeal.
    Stay strong. I'm proud of my home-town girl for being so courageous. We will fight for justice for you, Emily! You and your family have our support and love. You are, and will be in my thoughts every single day. Though I realize something has been unjustly taken from you that you can't get back, I know new doors will open into your wonderful, creative soul, much the way they did for Frida Kahlo, who also suffered a terrible injury and who ultimately triumphed despite it.
    Lots of Love,

  145. Tell these suicide bombers to stay off my page.

  146. best wishes for you from ankara, get well soon please!

  147. I can't say I agree with what you did, or believe that your beliefs are right, but I'm sorry you were hurt. Best wishes, and I hope you get well soon.

  148. Emily, I'm very sorry that this happened to you. I am a Zionist Jew and believe that we need to acknowledge the injustices we are committing in Israel/Palestine and need to work for change. I wish you a quick recovery.

  149. I read just recently that "Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at its testing point." – CS Lewis
    Thank you for demonstrating that he was right.
