Israel attacks small Gaza
I am sure you might of asked your self why Israel is attacking
the Palestinians in the small, small land they live in.
Seen as much like in view as the state of Texas attacking a small town.
More Palestinians are attacked than Israel is attacked.
Palestinians where shot at as they walk along as they went on
with their daily lives more than in Israel! Makes you really say WTF!
~~~~What The Media’s Getting Wrong About Israel And Palestine - And Why It Matters
From 2000 to 2007, about 1,000 Israelis have been killed in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
and nearly 6,000 Palestinians have been killed. Since the recent assault on Gaza under
Operation Protective Edge, over 230 Palestinians have been killed, including nearly
40 children and 20 women, plus over 500 wounded including and over 80 houses destroyed
those numbers continue to rise. Hamas’ rockets firing into Israel have killed zero
Israeli civilians since the cross fire began last week.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Information’s latest report on civilian casualties,
one Palestinian child has been killed by Israel every three days for the last 13 years.
As an American who has lived in Jerusalem, I struggle between the want to share what
I feel is the vast media cover-up of the Israeli-led violence and the want to stand up
and say, “enough.” Both messages echo truths, from those trapped within the violence
to those silenced for reporting the violent assault.
The deaths of Israeli teens Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Shaer and Eyal Yifrah represent a tragedy
one that no family should have to face. Violence touches communities deeply and does not
spare race, creed or intellect. What I grapple with, is the reaction to their deaths
Israeli lawmakers calling for a genocide and vengeance against Arabs, the torture
and murder of 17-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdair by Israeli settlers, Israeli settlers’
continued kidnapping and abuse of Palestinian children, and now the Israeli military
operation and violent assault against Gaza that is collectively punishing 1.7 million people
who are already living in poverty. Gaza has been described by human rights groups
as an open air prison with no where to escape. It has to end.
