Gaza Citizens Lighting Candels

Is that how you get your water ?

Traveling thousands of miles to start my graduate education, i was disconnected from the world for about 10 days. With a couple of days driving on the road, and no internet set up at home yet, i had no means to check the news or anything. So, when i was planning to write my next post, i was thinking of talking about my 2-day driving road trip.

However, as soon as i got connected, the stark dark news was hard to escape. The mass punishment of innocent Palestinian civilians in Gaza is just inhumane. No words can really describe what is going on. It is truly frightening. What would happen if this was done to people in Europe or the USA ? How would the world react ? What description would be given to the country/people applying such mass punishment ? Why is it not done now ? Why is the world turning its blind eye ?

Words escape me trying to come up with something different that what many great bloggers have said about this. I leave you with this nice article by Sabbah.

  1. Za3tar, if this was done to people in Europe or America, the whole world including the Arab world wouldn’t accept it! But unfortunately everyone including us used to hear about such actions and violence in Palestine without any reactions!

    you can’t imagine how much this makes me sad and angry!

  2. Yeah … i totally understand what you feel. It is frustrating to see how the innocent Palestinian civilians are treated in sub-humane fashion. YET, the world just ignores. Urrgggh
