Gaza: Where Cemeteries Serve the Living

Welcome to Baraka City --Gaza

(SALEM / GAZA) - Most people know about the suffering in Gaza, or do they? Israeli propaganda groups like to send out photos of shopping malls with happy people and claim they are from Gaza, and God knows people of Gaza deserve what everyone else has, but I would bet my life on the fact that a very tiny percentage of Gazans ever actually go to a mall.

But they do go to their graves.

Sometimes, as we learn in the video report below from Hussein Haniyeh in Gaza, the people calling them home aren't dead... yet.

Loving the people of Gaza does not equate with being against Israel. Espousing criticism of Israel is not antisemitic. Speaking up for the downtrodden population of any culture is not terrorism.

I feel a bit like a broken record because I have written this so many times. The elected government of Gaza is Hamas. Many years ago Hamas halted two practices; suicide bombs and rocket attacks.

Rockets are intermittently fired from Gaza in self defense but most are fired by civilians unaffiliated with the Hamas. Either way, fewer than 30 Israeli people have been killed in rocket attacks since they began in the early 1990's.

But Israel, like the US, uses drones and F-16's to terrorize the population of Occupied Palestine, Gaza in particular. Israel does everything it accuses Gaza of a thousand times harder and more intense. There is no secret these days, anyone in Gaza who dares raise a fist toward Israel will likely be targeted and killed, and a lot of innocent people may go with them.

News media in the US, UK and Israel cause people to believe these unguided rockets kill people constantly, it is far from the truth.

Most people in Gaza just wish they could live out their lives

45 Families presently live in the cemetery in Gaza Strip. The Baraka City association Decided to collect some money for them, the IBAN is already in the video and the We donate page is attached to the video.

You sound a bit weary, Tim. Boiling frog principle. The liberation of Palestine is more within reach than ever. I'm a pessimist about our capacity for change, yet in this, I could dare to say that I nearly taste it. This is the first time I've come across your articles. Refreshing. Interesting content. Will be bqck.
