      At least 75 people have been killed overnight in Gaza's Shujayea neighbourhood[AFP]

      I sit in my apartment in Gaza City for days and nights, watching the sky
      turn grey with thick smoke during the day, and bright yellow and orange
      in the darkness of the night. The grey and yellow and orange are
      courtesy of Israeli bombs, missiles, shelling, drones - gifts from the
      people of the United States to the people of Gaza. We don't want your
      gifts, we want our land, our birthright. And because Israelis want it
      too, we must live in an open-air prison, be the target of your "best"
      pilots, be dehumanised so that you can kill us and blame us for making
      you kill us!

      6pm Saturday, July 19 It is summer in Gaza, Ramadan. Families should be together, sitting on the rooftops, having iftar, cutting open a red, juicy watermelon, eating
      roasted pumpkin seeds, shelling nuts, going to the mosque, staying awake late into the night, praying. It is the time to take our children to
      the beach, to tease them for being too clever, if they got very high
      marks and to tease them for not being very clever, if they did not get
      high marks. It is the time to visit family in Sheikh Radwan, in Rafah,
      in Khan Younis, to have iftar with brothers and sisters, and nieces and
      nephews. But we dared to leave our homes for the last 12 days.

      We have to confess to
      our children that we cannot observe Ramadan like everyone else. We are
      Palestinian, so our lives are different, must be different. Their lives
      must be different. They have land that the Israelis want. They are
      different, they have Israelis in their lives. They are the goyim, the unwanted other, the native American, the nigger of the American South, the kaffir of South Africa.

      6:30pm Saturday, July 19 The Palestinian Resistance demands that Egypt opens the Rafah crossing
      permanently. There's a story to tell to our children: Why is the Rafah
      crossing closed today? Why has it been mostly closed since 2006? Isn't
      Egypt an Arab country? Aren't Palestinians Arabs or is it that Gazans
      aren't Arabs? How do we explain this to the children of Gaza?

      To the five-year old
      whose legs are being amputated as I write this: Does she know that the
      Rafah crossing was closed before she was born? Does she know that she
      had to lose her legs just because she is Palestinian, and lives in Gaza, and Israel is very, very scared of her? So scared that they had to
      shell her house 10 times in quick succession? So scared that this amount of fire power is the only thing that will stop her from scaring the
      Israelis?

      7pm Saturday, July 19 Two colleagues from Al Aqsa University, Jamal, Nasr and Khaled Nasr, have
      lost their two sons! RIP our lovely boys. How do I face your parents?
      How do your parents face tomorrow? And how many Israeli colleagues
      sympathise with us?

      8pm Saturday, July 19 More than 100 Palestinians killed in Gaza in 48 hours! Our population is
      only 1.8 million. This is a massacre! They are insane. This is ethnic
      cleansing. World, wake up!

      9pm Saturday, July 19 Bolivian President Evo Morales calls what is happening in Palestine a genocide. Some are
      saying that it should be investigated. There is no need to investigate
      if the Israelis do not punish the instigators and perpetrators of
      genocide! Judge Richard Goldstone detailed the guilt of the Israeli army in 2008-2009. No one was held accountable or punished. The Gaza Docket
      of the 2008-2009 atrocity was given to the South African government who
      could act in terms of the Rome Statute. No one was held accountable or
      punished. Words are meaningless when 60 are killed in one day, when
      children have legs amputated, and when they sit alone in the dark, and
      cry next to the dead bodies of their parents.
      10 pm Saturday, July 19 Massive protests in London in support of Gaza. I tell friends there that they
      should demand nothing less than the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador, military embargo, and sanctions against Israel! That is the only way to stop the ongoing genocide of Palestinians - the holocaust of the 21st
      century! The horror!

      Midnight Saturday, July 19 A black, dark summer night. No water, no electricity. The smell of smoke
      and fear and panic fills the night. The relentless sound of Israeli
      shelling: thump, thump, thump. All night long. Huge explosions in the
      east of Gaza, Shujayea the only mistake of the people there is that they live right next door to Israel and they follow the wrong religion! So
      they must endure multiple explosions all night long. Ambulances are not
      allowed in. The Red Cross does not go in - too dangerous. So what will
      the people there do? Sit with their injured and dead? That sound of
      non-stop explosions - it drives us mad with anger, with fear, with
      despair. How many are dying? How many are in pain? Where is the world?
      They told them to run away from there because they are going to attack,
      but where do you run to in Gaza? The borders are closed. It is the
      Israelis who want the borders closed, but it is also the Israelis who
      say "run away"!

      2am Sunday, July 20 Summer in Gaza. We should be walking on the shores of the beautiful
      Mediterranean, enjoying the cool breeze now that the sun has gone down.
      Young people should be playing night football, commiserating with those
      who supported Brazil in the World Cup, retelling every moment of
      excellence in Colombia's games, insulting those who supported Germany,
      making Spain's supporters the butt of a thousand jokes. Young people
      should be dancing dabkhe, staging theatre shows, planning Eid.

      But this is Gaza under
      Israeli bombardment and young people here have to hold tight onto the
      hands of their young siblings, while at the same time checking that the
      road is clear, that the sky is clear. Sometimes they must carry a
      mother, a grandmother, a baby, and they must run, run, run, quick before the drones see us! Quick before an Israeli filled with hate pulls the
      trigger, quick before an American-made missile blows us into the sky so
      that we become part of that big, yellow flame that lights up the dark,
      Gaza night.

      4am Sunday, 20 July Can't sleep, thinking about the people being attacked. F16s are flying
      almost next to my window! With every explosion, I wonder, who? How many? What is their state now? Who is gone? Who is left? Where will it end? I know what death tastes like now.

      8am Sunday, July 20 Another sleepless night! The Israelis will not allow the Red Cross into
      Shujayea! And the bombings continue with no one to pick up the bodies on the streets, no one to help the injured. Thousands of families walking
      into Gaza City from the north, from the east, walking away from the
      approaching Israeli army. Is this 1948 or is it 1967?

      Palestinians are again
      walking away from a murderous Israeli with a death weapon in his/ her
      hand, ready to kill to take another 20 metres of land away from us. A
      hundred people, 200 people, 1000 people - a small price Israelis think,
      to get another 20 metres of the precious land of Palestine. They love
      our land but they hate us. Why did they come here then? Why did they not stay in the western civilisation that they value so much? Why did they
      come to the land of the dark Arab, the land of the peasant olive farmer, the land of the fedayeen that they created by their presence here?


      INTERACTIVE: Gaza Under Attack

      10am Sunday, July 20 The question from the media to Palestinians: Israel is saying that its
      defence forces try to avoid civilian casualties, and that it warns
      civilians before any military action in their neighbourhood. Answer from us: This is not downtown Manhattan or London, with trains, buses,
      planes to take us from here to anywhere we would like to go!! We are
      under siege, have been since 2006, with the support and complicity of
      the United States, United Kingdom, the castrated United Nations, the
      socialist government of France which is refusing to let their citizens
      protest in support of Palestinians under Israeli bombardment. They have
      not allowed doctors to enter Gaza, doctors from Malaysia, United
      Kingdom, Turkey, many countries. Human beings who empathise with us, who want to stop the blood, ease the pain, stitch the gaping holes in our
      bodies.

      12 noon Sunday, July 20 17 children, 18 women, 14 elderly (so far) in Shujayea, among 60 dead. Today the Israeli war machine butchered 104; the number
      of those injured in Gaza so far is 3000. There is no gauze in the
      hospitals, no painkillers, no anaesthetic for the operation, no beds, no sleep for the doctors, no silence for the injured.

      3pm Sunday, July 20 Random shelling and air strikes across the Gaza Strip. Eight killed in my neighborhood, Remal.

      5:40pm Sunday, July 20 The words of Mark Regev reach my unbelieving ears. I look outside and see huge mountains
      of thick grey smoke, the same smoke that has engulfed Gaza for the last
      12 days, the same smoke that has blocked out the sun and the blue
      Mediterranean Sea for the last 24 hours. This spokesman of the apartheid Israeli regime is justifying the killing of Palestinian civilians in
      Shujayea because the most "moral" army in the world dropped pamphlets to tell people to leave their homes before they bombed. "Leave your homes
      or we will kill and rape you" - that's what the Haganah and the Stern
      Gang told my parents in 1948; my parents died dreaming of returning to
      their Zarnouqa. There was no satellite television then, no Facebook, no
      Twitter, no cell phones, no way to tell the world what was happening to
      them. So much technology, so much communication, so many words, so
      little action, so little change. Gaza oh my Gaza! Palestine, oh my
      Palestine! My land of sad oranges!

      8pm Sunday, July 20 Another evening, another hour of Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip. Will
      Beit Hanoun and/or Beit Lahia, in the north, witness the second massacre tonight? BBC and CNN are not calling what has happened a massacre?! How many should be killed in order to convince the editors in London and
      New York to call it a massacre? What if their children were to be
      slaughtered by apartheid Israel? Would that change their "neutrality"?!

      Should we accept an
      Egyptian ceasefire initiative calling on us to surrender to Israel?  A
      ceasefire that will result in the continuation of the siege? An
      initiative that calls our resistance to occupation and apartheid
      "hostilities"? Why are people dying? For the status quo to remain as is?

      No!

      Gaza, the Sharpeville, the Guernica of Palestine will become our Saigon! We cannot afford despair!

        Israeli would be right, "Palestinians" would be wrong, and I don't care HOW many crying children you show me; that doesn't change the truth.  But, in fact, anyone using that tactic immediately reveals themself as a "dirty player".   (I can just hear them now, in deciding matters of world importance: "Bring in the crying children!".  Stuff it).

          P.S.  I wouldn't be surprised if they smack 'em around a little, before they take those pictures.  Hey  -  -  we know that children are regularly used by this population as "shahids", why would that be a big deal for some "good" P.R.?  (You notice that the one thing you don't ever see in those photos is the image of any of the adults trying to comfort those crying children.  HOW COME?).

          Israeli would be right, "Palestinians" would be wrong, and I don't care HOW many crying children you show me; that doesn't change the truth.  But, in fact, anyone using that tactic immediately reveals themself as a "dirty player".   (I can just hear them now, in deciding matters of world importance: "Bring in the crying children!".  Stuff it).

          At least 75 people have been killed overnight in Gaza's Shujayea neighbourhood[AFP]

          I sit in my apartment in Gaza City for days and nights, watching the sky
          turn grey with thick smoke during the day, and bright yellow and orange
          in the darkness of the night. The grey and yellow and orange are
          courtesy of Israeli bombs, missiles, shelling, drones - gifts from the
          people of the United States to the people of Gaza. We don't want your
          gifts, we want our land, our birthright. And because Israelis want it
          too, we must live in an open-air prison, be the target of your "best"
          pilots, be dehumanised so that you can kill us and blame us for making
          you kill us!

          6pm Saturday, July 19 It is summer in Gaza, Ramadan. Families should be together, sitting on the rooftops, having iftar, cutting open a red, juicy watermelon, eating
          roasted pumpkin seeds, shelling nuts, going to the mosque, staying awake late into the night, praying. It is the time to take our children to
          the beach, to tease them for being too clever, if they got very high
          marks and to tease them for not being very clever, if they did not get
          high marks. It is the time to visit family in Sheikh Radwan, in Rafah,
          in Khan Younis, to have iftar with brothers and sisters, and nieces and
          nephews. But we dared to leave our homes for the last 12 days.

          We have to confess to
          our children that we cannot observe Ramadan like everyone else. We are
          Palestinian, so our lives are different, must be different. Their lives
          must be different. They have land that the Israelis want. They are
          different, they have Israelis in their lives. They are the goyim, the unwanted other, the native American, the nigger of the American South, the kaffir of South Africa.

          6:30pm Saturday, July 19 The Palestinian Resistance demands that Egypt opens the Rafah crossing
          permanently. There's a story to tell to our children: Why is the Rafah
          crossing closed today? Why has it been mostly closed since 2006? Isn't
          Egypt an Arab country? Aren't Palestinians Arabs or is it that Gazans
          aren't Arabs? How do we explain this to the children of Gaza?

          To the five-year old
          whose legs are being amputated as I write this: Does she know that the
          Rafah crossing was closed before she was born? Does she know that she
          had to lose her legs just because she is Palestinian, and lives in Gaza, and Israel is very, very scared of her? So scared that they had to
          shell her house 10 times in quick succession? So scared that this amount of fire power is the only thing that will stop her from scaring the
          Israelis?

          7pm Saturday, July 19 Two colleagues from Al Aqsa University, Jamal, Nasr and Khaled Nasr, have
          lost their two sons! RIP our lovely boys. How do I face your parents?
          How do your parents face tomorrow? And how many Israeli colleagues
          sympathise with us?

          8pm Saturday, July 19 More than 100 Palestinians killed in Gaza in 48 hours! Our population is
          only 1.8 million. This is a massacre! They are insane. This is ethnic
          cleansing. World, wake up!

          9pm Saturday, July 19 Bolivian President Evo Morales calls what is happening in Palestine a genocide. Some are
          saying that it should be investigated. There is no need to investigate
          if the Israelis do not punish the instigators and perpetrators of
          genocide! Judge Richard Goldstone detailed the guilt of the Israeli army in 2008-2009. No one was held accountable or punished. The Gaza Docket
          of the 2008-2009 atrocity was given to the South African government who
          could act in terms of the Rome Statute. No one was held accountable or
          punished. Words are meaningless when 60 are killed in one day, when
          children have legs amputated, and when they sit alone in the dark, and
          cry next to the dead bodies of their parents.
          10 pm Saturday, July 19 Massive protests in London in support of Gaza. I tell friends there that they
          should demand nothing less than the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador, military embargo, and sanctions against Israel! That is the only way to stop the ongoing genocide of Palestinians - the holocaust of the 21st
          century! The horror!

          Midnight Saturday, July 19 A black, dark summer night. No water, no electricity. The smell of smoke
          and fear and panic fills the night. The relentless sound of Israeli
          shelling: thump, thump, thump. All night long. Huge explosions in the
          east of Gaza, Shujayea the only mistake of the people there is that they live right next door to Israel and they follow the wrong religion! So
          they must endure multiple explosions all night long. Ambulances are not
          allowed in. The Red Cross does not go in - too dangerous. So what will
          the people there do? Sit with their injured and dead? That sound of
          non-stop explosions - it drives us mad with anger, with fear, with
          despair. How many are dying? How many are in pain? Where is the world?
          They told them to run away from there because they are going to attack,
          but where do you run to in Gaza? The borders are closed. It is the
          Israelis who want the borders closed, but it is also the Israelis who
          say "run away"!

          2am Sunday, July 20 Summer in Gaza. We should be walking on the shores of the beautiful
          Mediterranean, enjoying the cool breeze now that the sun has gone down.
          Young people should be playing night football, commiserating with those
          who supported Brazil in the World Cup, retelling every moment of
          excellence in Colombia's games, insulting those who supported Germany,
          making Spain's supporters the butt of a thousand jokes. Young people
          should be dancing dabkhe, staging theatre shows, planning Eid.

          But this is Gaza under
          Israeli bombardment and young people here have to hold tight onto the
          hands of their young siblings, while at the same time checking that the
          road is clear, that the sky is clear. Sometimes they must carry a
          mother, a grandmother, a baby, and they must run, run, run, quick before the drones see us! Quick before an Israeli filled with hate pulls the
          trigger, quick before an American-made missile blows us into the sky so
          that we become part of that big, yellow flame that lights up the dark,
          Gaza night.

          4am Sunday, 20 July Can't sleep, thinking about the people being attacked. F16s are flying
          almost next to my window! With every explosion, I wonder, who? How many? What is their state now? Who is gone? Who is left? Where will it end? I know what death tastes like now.

          8am Sunday, July 20 Another sleepless night! The Israelis will not allow the Red Cross into
          Shujayea! And the bombings continue with no one to pick up the bodies on the streets, no one to help the injured. Thousands of families walking
          into Gaza City from the north, from the east, walking away from the
          approaching Israeli army. Is this 1948 or is it 1967?

          Palestinians are again
          walking away from a murderous Israeli with a death weapon in his/ her
          hand, ready to kill to take another 20 metres of land away from us. A
          hundred people, 200 people, 1000 people - a small price Israelis think,
          to get another 20 metres of the precious land of Palestine. They love
          our land but they hate us. Why did they come here then? Why did they not stay in the western civilisation that they value so much? Why did they
          come to the land of the dark Arab, the land of the peasant olive farmer, the land of the fedayeen that they created by their presence here?


          INTERACTIVE: Gaza Under Attack

          10am Sunday, July 20 The question from the media to Palestinians: Israel is saying that its
          defence forces try to avoid civilian casualties, and that it warns
          civilians before any military action in their neighbourhood. Answer from us: This is not downtown Manhattan or London, with trains, buses,
          planes to take us from here to anywhere we would like to go!! We are
          under siege, have been since 2006, with the support and complicity of
          the United States, United Kingdom, the castrated United Nations, the
          socialist government of France which is refusing to let their citizens
          protest in support of Palestinians under Israeli bombardment. They have
          not allowed doctors to enter Gaza, doctors from Malaysia, United
          Kingdom, Turkey, many countries. Human beings who empathise with us, who want to stop the blood, ease the pain, stitch the gaping holes in our
          bodies.

          12 noon Sunday, July 20 17 children, 18 women, 14 elderly (so far) in Shujayea, among 60 dead. Today the Israeli war machine butchered 104; the number
          of those injured in Gaza so far is 3000. There is no gauze in the
          hospitals, no painkillers, no anaesthetic for the operation, no beds, no sleep for the doctors, no silence for the injured.

          3pm Sunday, July 20 Random shelling and air strikes across the Gaza Strip. Eight killed in my neighborhood, Remal.

          5:40pm Sunday, July 20 The words of Mark Regev reach my unbelieving ears. I look outside and see huge mountains
          of thick grey smoke, the same smoke that has engulfed Gaza for the last
          12 days, the same smoke that has blocked out the sun and the blue
          Mediterranean Sea for the last 24 hours. This spokesman of the apartheid Israeli regime is justifying the killing of Palestinian civilians in
          Shujayea because the most "moral" army in the world dropped pamphlets to tell people to leave their homes before they bombed. "Leave your homes
          or we will kill and rape you" - that's what the Haganah and the Stern
          Gang told my parents in 1948; my parents died dreaming of returning to
          their Zarnouqa. There was no satellite television then, no Facebook, no
          Twitter, no cell phones, no way to tell the world what was happening to
          them. So much technology, so much communication, so many words, so
          little action, so little change. Gaza oh my Gaza! Palestine, oh my
          Palestine! My land of sad oranges!

          8pm Sunday, July 20 Another evening, another hour of Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip. Will
          Beit Hanoun and/or Beit Lahia, in the north, witness the second massacre tonight? BBC and CNN are not calling what has happened a massacre?! How many should be killed in order to convince the editors in London and
          New York to call it a massacre? What if their children were to be
          slaughtered by apartheid Israel? Would that change their "neutrality"?!

          Should we accept an
          Egyptian ceasefire initiative calling on us to surrender to Israel?  A
          ceasefire that will result in the continuation of the siege? An
          initiative that calls our resistance to occupation and apartheid
          "hostilities"? Why are people dying? For the status quo to remain as is?

          No!

          Gaza, the Sharpeville, the Guernica of Palestine will become our Saigon! We cannot afford despair!

              When there were photos of the Fogel family murdered, the children of
              the Fogel family
              was shown and the Palestinians ESPECIALLY their children CELEBRATED IT.
              READ THAT AGAIN - the Palestinian Children CELEBRATED the death of
              Israeli JEWISH
              Children. Doesn't that tell you something? That was BEFORE there
              was the war there,
              2 years ago. They celebrate every time they kill Israeli children ALWAYS.

              Why doesn't the UN complain about that?
              Where was the UN when the Palestinians were shooting Kassam rockets
              into Israel for
              years? Where was the UN to complain about it? THE UN NEVER CARED.

              WHY SHOULD THE UN NOW CARE?

                Thursday, July 31st | 4 Av 5774

                Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati said he was
                able to speak freely about witnessing a Hamas
                misfire that killed nine children at the Shati
                camp, confirming the Israel Defense Forces
                version of events, but only after leaving Gaza,
                "far from Hamas retaliation."

                On Twitter, Barbati, Jerusalem Correspondent for
                Radio Popolare Milano, and a former reporter for
                Sky Italia, in Beijing, said, "Out of #Gaza far
                from #Hamas retaliation: misfired rocket killed
                children yday [yesterday] in Shati. Witness:
                militants rushed and cleared debris."

                He said, "@IDFSpokesperson said truth in
                communique released yesterday about Shati camp
                massacre. It was not #Israel behind it."

                On Tuesday, the IDF released aerial photos
                showing how a rocket from Gaza targeting Israel
                hit the Shati camp, run by the UNRWA, and Al
                Shifa Hospital, which has become a de-facto Hamas
                headquarters, against international rules of war.

                Barbati said he was unable to speak about the Al
                Shifa hit, but he was certain that it was a Hamas
                rocket that hit the Shati camp, and a witness saw
                militants rushing to clean the debris.

                Blogger Elder of Ziyon, who praised Barbati for
                telling the truth in a war where many journalists
                have been intimidated by Hamas, noted that "When
                Hamas made the area off limits to reporters, it
                was cleaning the area from any debris that could
                show the truth."

                On Tuesday, CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in
                Middle East Reporting in America, called out two
                correspondents from The Wall Street Journal for
                deleting photographs that would implicate Hamas
                in the war crime of using the Al Shifa hospital
                as a military headquarters. Other journalists,
                including a Gazan reporter for French media
                recounted to France's Libération how Hamas had
                interrogated him in the same hospital, but later
                asked the newspaper to take down the story.

                Elder of Ziyon said, "Every single report on TV
                from Gaza should have this disclaimer: 'Our
                reporters have been threatened, implicitly and
                perhaps explicitly, by Hamas to only report one
                side of the story.Viewers must not trust anything
                they are saying.'"

                "There is an assumption of fairness in
                journalism, a contract between the media and the
                viewers," the influential blogger said. "This
                contract has been broken, as far as I can tell,
                by nearly every single reporter in Gaza in nearly
                every report, with a couple of rare exceptions."

                  Chaim David Eric Targan

                  WE'RE ALL ONE FAMILY
                  ====================
                  The father of a Chayal (soldier) who is now in Gaza told how his son
                  was informed on Friday that his unit will not be going home for
                  Shabbos, which was a problem because they did not have any provisions
                  for Shabbos.
                  The father ran to the supermarket to buy some things, as much dips
                  and salads as he could, then he stopped at the schwarma place in
                  Petach Tikva. He asked for a portion to be put into an aluminum tray
                  and explained that it was for his son who is in Gaza without food for
                  Shabbos.
                  The owner said to him "what do you mean for your son? How many
                  soldiers are in his group?" The father answered "70"
                  The Schwarma place owner called all of his workers. They prepared all
                  the schwarma they had, brought out all of their meat, fried
                  schnitzels, prepared Moroccan salads and chips and within an hour he
                  and all of his workers had emptied the entire restaurant and given it
                  over to the father. The father, who has seen people do acts of
                  kindness in his in his life, just stood there crying and thanking him.
