Gaza and Resistance as life



Once again, a massive invasion strikes Gaza, without differentiating between a tunnel and a ten story building. An attack that strikes to kill, not distinguish between a militant and an infant or even an unborn child.


Once again, the aggressor becomes the defender. The victim becomes the one to be blamed.

Israel with its brutal face, continue to kill. To prove yet once again that the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians will never seize to end.

While we busy ourselves with condemning the Palestinians for Resistance. Needless to say, responding to the nonstoppable invasions and aggressions under a massive siege and a vicious blockade. It is always the Palestinians to be blamed.

As the world, once again is watching live killing and strikes that continue to kill and threat almost two million people under a devilish reality of occupation. Gazans continue to pay the price of life under occupation.

Israel real face insists on surfacing each time, a cruel reality that fulfills itself with destructions and killings of the “others” .

And yet, Gaza with its heroic resistance, insist on teaching us all- those who perceive the human race as one- that resistance becomes life when life is a constant threat in living.
