The war against Gaza
- Salim K.
- Saturday, 02 August 2014
I am a Palestinian who has been from his home town alLud 66 years ago. The house of my life has changed to the worse ever since. I am writing today about the hardship the people of Gaza are going thru now a day. The only power station has been rendered unworkable for at least a full year. No electricity affects all aspects of civilian life: shortage of water supply, sewage and household appliances to name a few. The fact of the matter you bear a responsibility as a human being first and for most, second you are a partner to the aggressor by arms supply and the declared political, economic and military support. There is always the talk about the interest of America yet there is no such talk about the moral and ethical values we hear you stand for as Americans. There common human values that we people of the planet share. What happened to those values Mr Obama? Obscured by limited in moral interests? I don't believe the good American citizen roaming the wilderness of Montana or the suburbs of Chicago would endorse or accept.
The people of Gaza are no terrorists. They are occupied by a vicious army apparatus for years now. They are under siege. War planes and drones criss criss cross there skies around the clock in addition to see and land blockade. What a patriot of any country of the world would do? SK the good American citizen.
I urge you Mr President to stop this war and assist in the immediate restoration of electricity and rebuilding Gaza
