When the spirit is dauntless even a mountain can melt. They were in the mouth of death, the smoke from grenades and tear gases can be seen flowing around them, sounds of bullets and snipers can also be heard, but nothing stopped these Palestinian activists in Gaza to continue with their peaceful protest.

The video of their horrific peaceful protest is going viral on the internet. In a video, some Palestinian activists can be seen tapping their feet on Arab folk dance on the sounds of bullets being shot by Israeli soldiers at the 14th weekly Great March of Return demonstration. The dance is popularly known as Dabke.
This protest was organized in order to peacefully ask the Palestinian refugees and their descendants to come back to Israel. Isn’t it so different and defying the odds? The Palestinians used this innovative way to force the world to give attention to their grave problem. Earlier, a few weeks ago, they dressed as characters from the movie ‘Avatar’.
