Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.

Supplication of Jesus, Son of Mary
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَصْبَحْتُ لا أَسْتَطِيعُ دَفْعَ مَا أَكْرَهُ، وَلا أَمْلِكُ نَفْعَ مَا أَرْجُو، وَأَصْبَحَ الأَمْرُ بِيَدِ غَيْرِي، وَأَصْبَحْتُ مُرْتَهَنًا بِعَمَلِي، فَلا فَقِيرَ أَفْقَرُ مِنِّي، اللَّهُمَّ لا تُشَمِّتْ بِي عَدُوِّي، وَلا تَسُؤْ بِي صَدِيقِي، وَلا تَجْعَلْ مُصِيبَتِي فِي دِينِي، وَلا تُسَلِّطْ عَلَيَّ مَنْ لا يَرْحَمُنِي.
Jesus, the son of Mary, peace be upon them, was accustomed to say, ❝O my God, surely I have entered into the morning unable to neither forestall what I fear nor hasten what I hope for. The whole affair is in another’s hand. I have arisen bound to my deeds. There is no one poorer than me. Do not make me the cause of my enemies being cursed, nor make me the reason any harm should come to a friend. Do not place tribulation in my spiritual path, nor empower anyone over me who shows me no mercy.❞
(One of Ibn Abī al-Dunyā’s works; "Walk on Water: The Wisdom of Jesus" From Traditional Arabic sources, translated by Hamza Yusuf)
