An X (formerly Twitter) user, Beisan, is winning hearts on social media by sharing the love story of her Palestinian parents. Beisan revealed her parents, a Muslim man and his Christian wife, have been married for over 40 years.
My Muslim Palestinian father and my Christian Palestinian mother have been married for over 40 years.— Beisan (@beisan) November 7, 2023
He still carries her purse for her wherever she goes.
You should all be so lucky to find a Palestinian man like my baba. pic.twitter.com/J3QETQak3H
In her next post, Beisan shared that inter-faith marriages were not permitted in Israel, where under the law, interfaith unions are not legally recognised. Because of this, her parents had to move to Canada in order to legalise their union.
So many people liked and shared this post. I showed my parents and they were tickled. Thank you.— Beisan (@beisan) November 17, 2023
I also think it’s important to point out that inter-faith marriages are illegal in Israel.
They had to get married in Canada for their love to be recognized. https://t.co/lytCTqIHFW
Twitter users were moved by Beisan’s dedication to her parents, a reminder of the enormous love Palestinian men hold for their families.
A user shared: “In high school I went on a trip to Nippissing & the weather was colder than I packed for. When I got home & told my father he was furious that I didn’t call him to bring sweaters, it was only a 3 hour drive. It’s hard to describe the intensity of a Palestinian father’s love.”

The videos of Palestinian men coming in from Gaza are videos of strength, compassion, bravery and care.
