A message for the world:

On UN Children’s day, it is also the 7th day of the Israeli aggression on Gaza.

I admit I’m not strong enough to bear all of these awful things. It’s so hard to see innocence being killed in such atrocious way, civilians being killed, elderly being killed, women being killed and moreover children being killed. What crime have they committed to deserve what is happening to them?!! How ironic it is that while the world celebrates Children’s day, Zionist aggression has killed more than 26 children of Gaza. If Israel is the most democratic country in the middle east, then fuck such a democracy !

For all the world: we don’t need your tears. We can cry all the day ourselves. We need you to act, to act against your governments which support Israel, act now against your silence.

I join my voice to those of my comrades here in Gaza to say that WE ARE NOT NUMBERS. Yes, we are not just numbers, we are human beings. We have feelings and passions, we have blood, we have hearts in our chests, we have families who care about us, we have friends, and we deserve to live just as you do.

Our blood is being shed every day and the world has yet to learn that we are human beings.

Act now to stop this massacre against Palestinians, act now to stop the ongoing Israeli aggression against Gaza.

Don’t just watch us while we are being killed: Israel gets its immunity from your silence, so please don’t let your silence further this aggression. Our defense is about our existence, is about our right to be or not to be. I may be killed at any moment because every Palestinian is a target for inhuman Zionist aggression. I just want my
words to reach you, not just for you to read them and feel sorry for us, but to touch your hearts and for you to act now!
