Gaza has been under siege for over a year for daring to democratically elect Hamas that legitimately fights to expel Israel’s brutal occupation from their land. Today Gaza is under a total blockade of fuel, without electricity, heat, bread, clean water, medicines, and overflowing sewage in the streets. The only light that brightens Gaza’s night sky is exploding Israeli bombs and shells. Israel is also blocking all U.N. humanitarian goods from entering Gaza which includes baby formula; such collective punishment of an entire population is illegal under International Law; but thanks to America, Israel has always been above the law, both divine and human.
This overcrowded strip of 1.5 million people has become the world’s largest prison suffering from a massive humanitarian crisis courtesy of Israel’s democracy. It’s shockingly ironic that Arab Gulf nations are awash in oil while their own Palestinian brothers in Gaza can’t find any oil to heat their homes and prevent hypothermia deaths in the young, elderly, and ill patients. At the same time, isn’t it despicable that Bush impudently conveys to the Arab leaders that Israel, the killer of Gaza, should serve as a role model for their democracy?
