A Letter to Gaza

Your existence is a daily nightmare for him. Merely your existence. You, being here, challenges his fraudulent entitlement to your land. He sees his crime in your eyes. In his head, you are an unbearable pain.

Shutting your voice is not enough. Imprisoning you is not enough. Killing you is not enough.

He wants you to disappear!

He will dehumanize you. He will tell himself and everyone else, that you are a beast. That you don’t know how to love. How to live. How to fear. So he kills you. But it’s not enough.

He will say you are the most dangerous threat to this planet. To whatever is called human. That the stone in your hand is more dangerous than his human extinguishing weapons. So he kills you. But it’s not enough.

He will tell you to trust him. And that he’ll give you peace. He will tell you to believe him. And that he’ll give you a piece. And then he kills you. But it’s not enough.

It’s never enough. In his head, you are an unbearable pain. Your ghost is surrounding him. He must make you disappear. So the crime also disappears.

When he succeeds. When you disappear. From your land. Away from his eyes. He will tell your story. A story in which you fade. Your real story is just as unbearable. Exactly as you were. So it also must disappear.

He will come up with a very creative and very ugly end. To end the story he made. To end you. Something similar to the story of ‘old world viruses.’ He will convince himself, you are history, and he can make it through.

You will fade and your story will. I am afraid. Or they’ll make you folklore. The same way ‘Native Americans’ faded and became a folklore. The same way ‘Native Australians’ faded. Or even more. You’ll slowly fade, I am afraid, so he can’t see his crime in your eyes, anymore.

Thousands flee Gaza’s Shujaiyah after night of terror | July 20, 2014

They walked in their thousands, barefoot and in their pyjamas, streaming out of the eastern Gaza district of Shujaiyah after a night of non-stop Israeli bombing.

They described hours of terror, as tank shells slammed into homes, with no electricity and no way to escape.They called ambulances, but there was no way for the vehicles to get in under the constant fire.

So in the end, thousands of desperate residents fled on foot at first light, walking two hours or more into Gaza City. They left behind the bodies of the dead in the streets of their neighbourhoods — in Nazzaz, in Shaaf and in other parts of this flashpoint area between Gaza City and the Israeli border.

One of those fleeing was Sabreen Hattad, 34, with her three children. “The Israeli shells were hitting the house. We stayed the night because we were so scared but about six in the morning we decided to escape,” she said. “But where are we supposed to go? The ambulances could not enter and so we ran under shell fire.” Three other men pass by in a hurry clutching bedding in their arms. Asked what they had seen they would only answer: “Death and horror.”

Many of those escaping Shujaiyah made for Gaza’s central Shifa hospital, which was engulfed by chaotic scenes and ambulances ferrying the dead came in a steady steam, among them a local TV cameraman Khaled Hamad and paramedic Fuad Jabir, killed during the overnight offensive, wheeled out wrapped in a bloody plastic shroud. "He wasn’t a fighter, he was a fighter for humanity," wailed one relative as the family buried him. ”He was an ambulance worker, did he deserve to die?” 

Shifa hospital administrator Dr. Hasan Khalas confirmed that 112 Palestinians were killed across Gaza last night, at least 60 dead in Shujaiyah only. Dozens of victims in Shujaiyah haven’t been identified. ”This is the worst I’ve ever seen it,” said Doctor Said Hassan, who has worked at the hospital for eight years.

More than 60 Palestinians were killed, including 17 children, and 210 injured in Shujaiyah massacre so far. The ongoing Israeli military attacks on the Gaza Strip have so far displaced more than 135,000 Palestinians, according to a report. The death toll is expected to rise as Israeli shelling continues and more bodies are uncovered, while today’s total across the Gaza Strip has passed 90 already, bringing the 13-day total death toll to more than 410, with at least 3,000 injured.

Massacre in Shujaiya: Dozens killed as Israel shells eastern Gaza City - photos | Electronic Intifada 

Dozens of men, women and children were killed in the early hours of Sunday as Israel indiscriminately shelled the eastern Gaza City neighborhood of Shujaiya.

Some sixty bodies have already been removed from the rubble of homes and apartment buildings, and the number of injured is more than two hundred, Palestinian health ministry spokesman Dr. Ashraf al-Qidra told local media.

But the true death toll could be even higher. The International Committee of the Red Cross said it coordinated a two-hour “humanitarian truce” to allow the rescue of the injured and the removal of bodies.

The latest massacre brings to more than 420 the number of Palestinians killed in Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, now entering its second week. More than 3,000 people have been injured and tens of thousands have fled their homes, with many seeking shelter in UN-run schools.
