Civil Society in Humanitarian Gaza

Again Israel is pressured into a cease fire for “humanitarian” reasons.

Again Hamas takes advantage for its own destructive purposes.

Cartoonist Branco gets it:

Australia’s’ Dave Sharma gets it, he said “civil society does not exist in Gaza.”

So why do John Kerry and Ban Ki-Moon not get it?

Shimon Peres was President and said Israel had to “end the occupation.”

Israel took every last Israeli out of Gaza in 2005.

Destroyed hundreds of Israeli families, homes and green houses and their financial security.

Many are not resettled today after these years.

Canada’s Vivian Bercovici gets it:

To paraphrase, Hamas just stop the rockets.

Nothing is uniting Israelis more than Hamas trying to kill us, over and over again.

So where is civil society? Where is the real humanitarian crisis?


Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
