There are no civilians in Gaza only militants and the dying

As dawn broke, the soldiers seized control of the highest buildings in the district and ordered several of the neighbours into the Samouni family home and there a dozen of them waited, without food and without water.

“All day Sunday there was shooting and bombing. We didn’t have anything to eat, we didn’t have water to drink – our water tanks had been damaged in the fighting,” said Wael Samouni, 32, who on a normal day would be manning his stall at the vegetable market. “We couldn’t sleep.”

“We were sitting and suddenly there was bombing on our house and everyone started to run. There were three rockets. I have no idea where they came from,” said Samouni. The rockets, believed now to be tank shells, hit the building and brought it crashing down. “I looked to my side, took hold of my boy Mohammad and I started to run. As I ran I looked back and saw on the floor my mother, two cousins and three of my children. All dead,” he said. Samouni and the others ran from the house, some raised white cloths as flags and they made it to a patch of safe ground where they were taken to hospital by car.

Israel has no problem killing civilians and labelling them terrorists.  In another development, Israel destroyed a UN sponsored school in Gaza killing scores of people who were sheltered there.  It’s not the first school they’ve destroyed.  The American school of Gaza and the Islamic University of Gaza’s women’s faculty were destroyed earlier.  Along with killing civilians, Israel wants to seriously damage the infrastructure of Gaza.

The word from Gaza


MIDEAST ISRAEL PALESTINIANS“I keep the children away from the windows because the F-16s are in the air; I forbid them to play below because it’s dangerous. They’re bombing us from the sea and from the east, they’re bombing us from the air. When the telephone works, people tell us about relatives or friends who were killed. My wife cries all the time. At night she hugs the children and cries. It’s cold and the windows are open; there’s fire and smoke in open areas; at home there’s no water, no electricity, no heating gas. And you [the Israelis] say there’s no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Tell me, are you normal?”

The answer to the question is no.  Israel is on a blood lust; driven by their thirst to spread death and destruction, no one is spared.  Is it any wonder there are some who may think Israeli Jews come from monkeys and pigs?
