It takes a child to show adults how things really are!
“The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.”

Nabi Saleh, occupied West Bank – Palestinian Janna Jihad Ayyad, who turned 10 this month, counts herself among the youngest journalists in the world.
A resident of the village of Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank, Janna, along with many other local children, regularly participates in demonstrations against the Israeli occupation. She began making videos of what was happening in her village when she was only seven.
“Not a lot of journalists are sending our message from Palestine to the world, so I thought, ‘why not send my message … and show them what is happening in my village’,” Janna told Al Jazeera.
On Facebook, Janna describes herself as a news personality, and has attracted more than 22,000 followers.
Her page includes several videos of her participating in demonstrations and confronting Israeli soldiers.
Her reports are delivered in both Arabic and English.
“My camera is my gun,” Janna explains. “The camera is stronger than the gun … I can send my message to small people, and they can send it to others.”
Her mother, Nawal Tamimi, says she is both scared for and proud of her young daughter.
