Over the past few days I have noticed an interesting phenomenon on Facebook. Many of my friends from Jordan have changed their profile picture to this image: What is the point in changing one’s profile picture to a candle and the phrase “This is to light Gaza”? I’m not exactly sure. My interpretation is that it’s about solidarity. It’s an interesting phenomenon, a kind of 21st century adaptation of the black ribbons that High School students to protest the War in Vietnam. More on Gaza later.
