Haleem, Interesting that every time, every terrorist attack happens, suddenly they point an unknown little muslim group that had not been before the attack!!
And every time a new group! And one can ask, how come they all have such a progressive systems that can pass all securities..
Very funny, seems they work together..
Yes indeed….all these people are terrorists because they question the occupiers of their home, because they fight the the tanks and jet fighters with stones, because they ask the killers why their loved ones were killed while taking water. UN should pass a resolution that it is inhuman and uncivil to raise voice when one is being tortured or killed and it will be considered as terrorism. All the JUST countries should work together to come out with even more severe punishment than just forcing them out of homes and killing them .
These photos are heartbreaking. I wish my people saw these things more so they would know the truth. Zionists control my country’s media and politicians. What more do they need? Our minds and our pocketbooks. We are their slaves.
I wish the ordinary people could see these things and would try to understand the Palestinian side! *sigh*
I am sorry for my years of blindness and misunderstanding. It’s great knowing “the other side.” What a huge difference it makes!
Gaza is in my prayers. May the Lord speak peace to their hearts even now. This is so heartbreaking.
whats happening to and in Gaza is a huge huge injustice. There’s a innocent population held captive by well-fed politicians living in cozy, warm houses BUT it’s not all Israel’s fault.
Don’t get me wrong: Israel’s fucking up a lot. Not only with Gaza. I’d be the first one recommending sending the whole Knesset personnel off to The Hague for trial. But as a matter of fact Hamas isn’t quite contributing to their (!) peoples well-being either. More Palestinians have been killed by other Palestinians then by Israelis lately (I can produce the source and straight numbers if somebody’s interested; just tell me) and it is Hamas (not the normal people of Gaza, but that’s what people tend to forget) that did break the ceasefire by continousely firing Qassam rockets on the Israeli town of Sderot.
I have been to Sderot – by the way those people are in favour of sending their government off to The Hague or some worse place too – and since then I can kinda understand why Israel won’t deliver fuel to Gaza: Because those damn Qassam rockets are fueled with it. As far as my information goes – perhaps somebody of you has Gaza-sourced data on that one – Israel does deliver a certain amount of fuel meant to keep generators working but that gas has repeatedly been taken by Hamas to fuel home-made rockets.
But let me get that clear once more: It’s not “the Gazans” who are “terrorists” or “the bad ones”. It’s complete fools on either side of the border – the Israeli Administration as well as the one in Gaza …
Just wanted to add that.
Impressive pictures though, Shahrzad! Thanks for sharing.
[...] “Let’s not forget”, Shahrazad wrote lately, “… Gaza does not have water. Gaza does not have Petrol. Gaza does not have Electricity. Instead, Gaza has a big graveyard!” and she’s right: We are not to forget Gaza! We are not to turn our backs on Gaza. Let's not forget! [...]
(I’ve been reading your blog since before I was blogging, but this is my first comment!)
This is an amazing post, JAK. Thank you for the reminder and the heart wrenching pictures. We should never forget Gaza. We should never forget that there are millions of people suffering – from poverty, war, sickness, injustice, or starvation – while we go about our daily lives.
shahrazad and all the rest of you with similar views, its such a relief to know that there are people who actually care about Palestine.
So the brainwashing by the western media wasn’t a total success after all.
May God save us all from the deceivers. May the deceivers be forgiven and may they be guided to truth.
May the earth be saved from getting swept by the plague of hatred that is being put in our hearts by our leaders and may the people of Palestine and the rest of those who suffer be given respite from their trials and may their prayers be answered.
I myself could gather a few sympathizers to the Palestinian cause. You will find them here
And now, more than six months after Israeli attacked Gaza, creating Gaza as the biggest cemetery in the world…

ALLAHUMMA YAA GAFURURRAHEEM…, forgive us…
@Shahrzaad: Thank you, JazakumuLlah khayran kathiiran.
Allah be with you:-)
