A story from the “bigger shoah”

Couple of weeks back, the “Israeli” deputy “defense” minster Matan Vilna threatened the Palestinians of Gaza with a “bigger shoah”, and shoah in Hebrew is used almost exclusively to refer to the Nazi holocaust against the Jews in Europe. Vilna threatened the Gazans with yet a bigger than the Nazi holocaust and here is another heart-breaking story from the shoah that killed more than 136 people… among them 40+ child…among them 3 babies… among them Amira Abu Asr, a 20 days old baby.

This story is about the families of Abu Salamah and Hijazi in Gaza: After the invasion of Jabaliya refugee camp ended, the Abu Salama family started looking for their 15 years old son, Ahmed, whom was missing since the invasion started. They waited several days for Ahmed to return home, but this never happened. Couple of days later, they were asked to come to Kamal Odwan hospital in northern Gaza strip to check an identified body for a teenage boy. The face was totally burned, the body was disfigured and nothing can be identified. The Abu Salamah family took the remaining of their son, buried it and opened a “consolation tent” to receive condolences from friends and families. Few days later, a neighbor of Abu Salamah family, comes hurrying to their home and shouting that he saw Ahmed in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Al-Shifaa hospital in Gaza city while he was visiting an injured family member of his. The mother and father of Ahmed hurried to the hospital and as soon as they arrived the ICU room where Ahmed is being treated, they couldn’t believe their eyes! their son was alive! he was not that poor teenage who was hit in an airstrike. However, the relief did not last long as they came to learn that their son’s face is severely burned and that he lost the ability to speak! But the story doesn’t end here, Ahmed’s name in the hospital papers was “Mansour Hijazi” a name for a teenage who was Ahmed’s look-alike … This news came as a lightening strike on the father and mother of Mansour Hijazi who were waiting all that time outside the ICU room waiting for “their son” to make it and leave the hospital… While their actual son, Mansour, was kept in the morgue of Kamal Odwan hospital for several days and later has been buried by Abu Salamah family!…

When does CNN wake up?

When more than a 116 Palestinians (the vast majority of them were civilians) were killed during last week attacks on Gaza and which among them were more than 40 children (see post below), CNN barely put one line on the side to talk about the story the next day, even they underrepresented the number of civilians killed and claimed the “Israeli” “OPERATION” was aiming to stop rockets!!!… Now, look at CNN after six “Israelis” were killed hours ago in Jerusalem… Within minutes CNN puts a BREAKING NEWS banner about the “TERRORIST ATTACK” (not even a “TERRORIST OPERATION”) …

This is after just minutes of the attack…

UPADATE: UN[FAIR] Security council will hold an emergency meeting tonight re the attack in Jerusalem…

Dan Gillerman, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, told CNN he saw no connection between Thursday’s shooting and Israel’s operations in Gaza. “There is no retaliation,” he said. “These people have been terrorizing Israel for years, have been carrying out suicide bombings and indiscriminate attacks for years.” Source: CNN.COM

No connection!!! Ok! Is that may be because Palestinians are bloody people and just addicted to killing like you son of a terrorist occupier!

The 20 Days Old Princess…

Ameera (Arabic for princess), 20 days old killed by “Israel” while in between her mom’s hands… Apparently the innocent “Israeli” soldiers thought she was the one behind the home-made rocket launched into Sderot…

The story told by her injured mom: ” We were going to visit the sick mother of Yousif Missiri, she is suffering from kidney problems and lives in her son’s house, they are friends of our family [Yousef Missiri is wanted for “Israel”]. While we are about to eat dinner, one of the kids came inside and started shouting the “Israeli” tanks are surrounding the neighborhood. Moments later the “Israeli” soldiers started calling on us to exit the home one by one, first three sisters of Missiri exited, then I followed them holding Ameera in my hands and shouting to them, Please don’t kill us, don’t kill my children [she was also accompanied by her 2 other kids]” she continues ” while I was holding Ameera and shouting, the soldiers mounted a strong flashlight on us and started firing shots at me and me daughter, I got heavily injured in my arm while still holding Ameera not knowing she is already dead, I knew she was dead the next morning”. She continues, ” I want to know why they killed her, did she fire rockets on the settlements or was she fighting them!”…

Ameera’s father was also beaten up and taken into custody because he kept asking the soldiers “why did you kill my daughter!”.

Enough with calling upon Arab leaders!

I am in an extremely bad mood… I have to finish writing a research proposal by this weekend, but this is not exactly why I am feeling bad! the situation in Gaza and watching Aljazeera makes me not able to focus!… I am extremely horrified by the pictures coming out of Gaza! Three babies were killed by the continuing “Israeli” airstrikes, this is in addition to more than 65 people killed, most of them are women and children… Let’s say that I don’t feel bad for those who die fighting; because they chose to fight and may be most of them were wishing to die fighting… but those babies, children, women and civilians did not choose to die! They want to live normally in that abnormal place called GAZA… They cannot leave it, the borders are closed since many many months ago, they cannot evacuate it, it’s sieged and surrounded… They even prefer to stay home and choose not to go to school or to work, thinking they can be safe inside!… and yet, the F-16 missiles don’t spare them! Those Bush gifts to “Israel” killed that baby in his crib, killed that woman while cooking in her kitchen! killed that man while trying to get some groceries for his family… And amid all this we hear Khaled Mishaal, the CEO of Hamas, calling upon the Arab leaders to rescue the Palestinians in Gaza!!! What Arab leaders you’re talking about! When will the time come and we understand and realize that the Arab leaders cannot do any good for us, they cannot do any good for their own people! why to bother with the Palestinians!… Your president, Mahmood Useless Abbass cannot do any good for his own people so why you are asking others! I mean tell me what Abbass can do for the Palestinians! Nothing, absolutely nothing except futile negotiations that end up resulting in more settlement built than before! tell me what can you do for the Palestinians? Aren’t you now the leader-in-chief of the devastated Gaza! Give us a break man!… We don’t need any Arab leader to help us! We need to work out our own way out of this, we need first to fix ourselves and unite ourselves! so we don’t have a Hamasstan and Fatehland… Then we can figure our way out of all these massacres and carnages…
