Watching the news reminds me of when I was in Gaza.

I know that many people say that Israel bombs indiscriminately, but when you are on the ground there in the middle of a major operation, it is horrible. This is a picture I took of the American International School hit in Operation Cast Lead (2009). It was reported that Hamas was firing rockets from the school.

But, I’ll never forget one night, sitting in my apartment, watching television. It was warm so the patio door was left open, and I could see the building across the street from me. It was a huge house, 5 stories high, so there were tons of windows. Suddenly, enough light reflected off those windows to totally light up my flat like it was daytime. The boom I heard was so loud – I was terrified. I jumped straight into the air and came down crying – I didn’t know what was happening. It was then that I learned that Hamas had a facility about 3 blocks away and Israel had hit it. The night was subsequently quiet, so I was sure the intended target was hit.

What amazed me was the fact that this Hamas facility was so close to a “non-Hamas” neighborhood. It is not a secret and this is a common practice and I’m telling you, it’s frightening. Of course, my first thought was “Why is Israel bombing this neighborhood?” Then I was told about the Hamas facility. Yes, they do tuck their operations into residential areas and let civilians endure the consequences.

As soon as the facility was hit, there was no further bombing that night.

  1. Islam is everywhere these days, it has begun its attacks everywhere. Some attacks are subtle the demand to ignore local law and obey only Sharia, so sneaky, it soon has the rest of us going to jail for blaspheming Sharia and our own law being replaced by The Sharia.

  2. Really, Michael? Have you had a conversation with a Palestinian about this issue? If you did, then you would know the truth of the matter.

    Don’t be so ignorant. It is not doing you any good. Have some decency for humanities sake.

  3. Hi, Benzy! I hope that you are doing well.

    Yeah, I don’t argue with ignorance. However, you talked about the kidnapping and killing of three men in your last comment. I decided to share with you a video on what Corporate Media isn’t telling the world. Check out the video by clicking on the following https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=rJ3UZxWAcfw

    I am pretty sure that even this video won’t convince you because ignorance is closed minded and stubborn.

  5. You are the epitome of the pot calling the kettle black.
    Let’s talk honestly. Have you condemned the thousands of civilian murders of Muslims at the hands of other Muslims? Do you not believe that you are mandated to hate Jews?

  6. Neil crawl back into your cave * you OBVIOUSLY have no real knowledge about this subject because your comment would be quite different if you knew the whole truth. I pick sides based on ALL the information not just the pity party band wagon. I feel badly for all homeless and displaced peoples regardless of religion or culture but the Jews have been displaced for years and they have a right to defend land that was theirs 3000 years before you were born and a right to defend it. If you were shooting at me I’d shoot back.

  7. Fatma, perhaps the Christian and Muslim Palestinians are on the same side for now but as soon as this dispute is over (if it ever is) the Muslims will murder all the Christians too. Right now it’s convenient to have them on their side. Mohamed was an excellent negotiator if he had to be but as soon as he was able to exert his will and power, the bloodshed began without mercy. The rest of humanity has to expect Muslims will follow that practice.

  8. Hi, Tennille.

    Please show me any proof of this from the Quran or Sunnah? You have no proof. You are speaking ignorance. If you can speak about Mohammed so confidently, then please show some proof from the Quran or Sunnah. Thanks.

    P.S. Try not to be so ignorant.

  9. Hey, Benzy.

    Why haven’t you replied to my other comments? Dumbfounded?

    That is not so. Anyhow, so that you appear credible, what proof do you have from the Quran and Sunnah that says your statement of: “According to Islam we can only be better human beings if we convert, willingly or not. Isn’t that so?”

  10. Robin, show your proof. What are you talking about? Christians and Muslims get along very well.

    Christianity is all over the Muslim world, so please prove to me where Christians are being persecuted in any Muslim country. Can you find proof of this going on today?

    Do you even know what the term ignorant means, Robin?

    P.S. Try not to be arrogantly ignorant. It will benefit you greatly. Thanks.

  12. Gayla, your question is not well thought out. It’s okay though, I can’t expect too much from a small minded zionist. Anyhow, how about you prove to me how I am ignorant? I am not ignorant in this matter, so you will have a tough time coming up with an argument.

  13. Jean, Zionists are killing Christians and Muslims in Palestine as we speak.

    Don’t you know that God is just. God will be just with all people. Christians and Muslims are praying for the safety of all Palestinians. I am among them. God bless Palestine and the Palestinian people. Moreover, May God bless the Jews against zionism.

  14. The current situation is politique, Israel trying to avoid the no war-no peace situation, which will be a victory for Hamas. It’s sad to see so many people dying. The difference is, they don’t fight Hamas because they are muslims.

  15. Hamas shouldn’t put their bases next to innocent people where they know it is hard for Israel to strike without causing harm to the innocent. Hey have been very patient and they warn the people to move. So maybe the PA needs to do something to help their own people. Besides the innocent people will be better off when they don’t have Islamist Radicals threatening them too.

  16. Jean, you seem to have gone off on an incomprehensible tangent. What are you trying to convey? However, you are correct, it’s quite unfortunate to see many people dying.

    Anyhow, have a good day. Please read and look into this matter at a deeper level.
