In celebrating the 85th anniversary of the Communist Party in Syria and Lebanon, the Palestinian singer and writerâ€”Khaled El-Hibr sang these words: We are fine in Gaza – How about you? – We are fine under attack – How about you? – Our martyrs are under the rubbles – Our children now living in the tents – And they ask about you – We are fine in Gaza – How about you?
Israelâ€™s assault on Gaza has totally demolished its vibrant recovery and growth since the previous war of destruction. In 2011 the economy of Gaza grew by 20%; after the recent Israeli attack who would dare consider Gaza as a place to live and invest?
The ongoing, repeated carnage and slaughter in Gaza (Syria, Bahrain, Afghanistan â€¦) underscores the utter futility of pandering to lesser evilism. If one votes for a degree of evil, then one should not be surprised when evil results.
A ceasefire has entered into force and attacks on Gaza have stopped since yesterday, 21 November 2012, night. Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights is preparing a report with description of IOF attacks, and lists of their victims.
