    Great photos. Gaza is the graveyard for the optimistic dreams of Zionism.

    There has been some vile hasbara over the last few days :

    “Imagine if the Palestinians loved their children”.
    “They voted for Hamas. They deserve it.”
    “They could have peace if the rockets stopped”

      “Imagine if the Palestinians loved their children”.

      They obviously do, because the PA Security Services refused to provide security coordination to Israeli forces when they attempted to enter the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem on Tuesday. Around 200 officers deployed around the city in front of Israeli military patrols, which eventually retreated.

      The PA liaison said they turned down the request because the troops wanted to enter at the time children were going to school in the morning;-)

    What I marvel at is the resilience of Palestinians and their ability to return from the brink of total destruction and rise from the ashes to rebuild again, and fight for their land and their freedom another day. I salute their strength.

    Zionists should get it by now: Palestinians are not going to lie down and die quietly. They’re delusional in thinking they can beat the Palestinians into submission, break their spirit and cleanse them from Palestine. Zionists are on a fools’ quest clinging to a mirage.

    Juan Cole has an enlightening piece up:

    “Gaza’s Health Crisis and Israel’s Crimes Against Humanity”

    (last para:)

    A recent World Health Organization Report worries that in just 8 years, in 2020, if current Israeli policies continue, Gaza will be virtually uninhabitable. Israel as the occupying power since 1967 is directly responsible in international law for the well-being of its occupied populations, and is in severe violation of the 1949 Geneva Convention on the treatment of the occupied. Moreover, since Israeli policies of Apartheid, discrimination, exile, restriction of movement and infliction of harm on Palestinians in Gaza are long-standing, deliberate and systematic, Israeli leaders are guilty in this regard of crimes against humanity.

    The WHO report:

    “Ms. [Jean] Gough [of UNICEF] said that demand for drinking water was projected to increase by 60 per cent while damage to the aquifer, the major water source, would become irreversible without remedial action now. Mr.[Robert] Turner [of UNRWA] added that more than 440 additional schools, 800 hospital beds and more than 1,000 doctors would be needed by 2020.”

    Israeli airstrikes are exacerbating what had already been a parlous health care situation for Palestinians in Gaza.

    “Thou shalt not kill” Zio-style:

    Zionism is the GOLDEN CALF.

    Mohammed is a very talented photographer – very effective images, high technical quality, zay el eshta ya’ni and he highlights the kind of human potential that there is in Gaza despite all that Israel has done to the Strip.
