Human Rights Group Calls Conditions in Gaza 'Unlivable' for One Million Children

Julia Conley, staff writer

Save the Children called on Israel to lift its blockade of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, reporting that one million children there are coping with "unlivable" conditions, as schools and households struggle to function with limited basic services and the constant threat of conflict.

Meanwhile Bebe and his concubine are sunning themselves by the pool adjacent to the manse built with money they stole from the Israeli government. Not unlike his pal, DJT and his courtesan.

Great article.

But.

Hamas didn’t do a 'seizure of the Gaza Strip in 2007. There general elections to Parliament in all of Palestine, something both the U.S. and Israel said they supported. Of course they expected Fatah, which had become a Vichy style organization doing Israel’s bidding, to win.

But Hamas won, overwhelmingly. Throughout all Palestine. The president of the Palestinian Authority, though, was not up for election and it was Fatah. He and Fatah just nullified the election in the West Bank under Israeli and U.S. orders.

But in the Gaza Strip they were not able to keep Hamas from exercising it’s governmental authority due to being elected.

Despite their lauding democracy all the time, both Israel and the U.S. immediately condemned Hamas being in charge.

That’s the “seizure” that happened in 2007.

Why did such a good article otherwise use language reflecting the U.S. and Israeli rejection of Hamas winning a fair election?

“Following the seizure of the Gaza Strip in 2007 by Hamas…”

This completely false and Orwellianly backward statement by the author is unforgivable. This just demonstrated the power of the Zionist and U.S. propaganda machine. Even this well intended author believes the opposite of what the reality is. See LibWingofLibWing’s post, quoted here:

Great question! Thank you for bringing up such a glaring omission.

And Hamas offered Palestinians access to FREE medical clinics, schools, clean water, housing, jobs, and means to save their lives and those of their children from starvation, homelessness, and deprivation. Not so the Israelis and complicit USAn’s. What a concept: win over the loyalty of starving, displaced human beings with caring and compassion rather than bombs, drones, walls, and barbed wire.

Israel delivers 800 truckloads per day of food & supplies to Gaza.


#8

At least they claim they do and lord knows the quality of the food delivered. What a statement that makes…having to truck in food to people they mistreat and marginalize along with destroying their villages/communities with rockets, bulldozers, etc. and constructing walls (not unlike DJT and his ilk). How humanitarian of them!!! “Zionism – the opposite and negation of Judaism.” And Netanyahu is a Zionist first and foremost.

Sure they do.

Thank you for the link and response JG.


#11

Acknowledging and Protecting the Human Rights of the Palestinians is the defining call to our Generation

If we cannot perceive this…


#12

Unlivable for 1,000,000 children and a huge number of cute puppies and kittens.
Just why is it so difficult to care about the adults, too.


#13

The Palestinians of Gaza have fired thousands of rockets & mortars killing or injuring 2,000 Israelis.
How many countries would give anything to people trying to exterminate them?


#14

What about the human rights of the Israelis?


#15

Obesity is a major problem in Gaza.


#16

If Palestinians weren’t trying to exterminate the Jews, then the Jews wouldn’t need
bombs, drones, walls, and barbed wire.


#17

Israel and the U.S. had every right to condemn Hamas’ being in charge just as Hamas has every right to condemn Trump’s being in charge.


#18

You speak as if Human Rights are mutually exclusive

One really must respect All People’s Rights… Correct

Surely you don’t suggest we jail an entire people for the actions of a few

It is clear that all Americans do not share the hate displayed in Charlottesville

Would you say the same is true in Gaza

How does the Kool-aid taste?

Sure were sound bite responses.

Was that a bot?
