In this Genocide in Gaza everyone has a role to play
by Abu Yasan
In this genocide everyone in Gaza was effected….If you were not killed, your brother, your sister, your mother, your father, your friend, your relative, someone you know, half of them or all of them together were killed. All houses were effected, some houses were leveled to the ground, some are half destroyed, some were destroyed partially but not good any more for living, some are slightly destroyed and if you’re lucky, your house would have lost only windows.. In this genocide we don’t cry the dead as much as we cry the injured; among the 9000 people injured, there are at least 3000 who are going to live the rest of their lives handicaps; some of them have lost legs, some have lost eyes, some have lost hands and some will be traumatized for the rest of their lives. In this genocide, Israel has destroyed our mosques, our schools, our hospitals, our universities, our homes, our streets, our water wills, our power plant and our shops. In this genocide Israel has returned Gaza to the stone age..
Despite everything mentioned above; This war is a victory for us; because in this genocide, we Palestinians are able to unite, we are able to live together, care for each other, open our houses for each others and love each others.. In this genocide, we forgot about our political differences, religious issues and cultural back ground. Our Muslims raised the Adan and prayed in the churches, our liberal girls fall in love with the conservative freedom fighters, our women and our men stood together as one hand, Fateh, Hamas, PFLP, Islamic Jehad, DFLP and all the other parties are fighting like an army.. In this genocide everyone knows his or her role and everyone trys to help everyone; Some of us are carrying weapons and fighting, some of us sitting in front of the laptops 24/7 typing, updating and exposing Israeli crimes, some of us are in the hospitals helping medics, some of us are in the UNRWA schools helping families who evacuated their homes and some of are working as politicians trying to make sure we reach a truce with good terms.. In this genocide, The Palestinians are able to wipe their own tears and say we’re ready to give more blood; They are able to show more steadfastness, more patience, more love, more care, more generosity and more fighting..
In this genocide, everyone is with everyone and everyone is for everyone.
