Gaza a cold misery is sinking with hostility from Illegal invasion by Israel and Egypt.

The winter storms have wiped Gaza into abject misery.

With the flattening of the entire town by Israel last summer, many families are huddled under plastic tarpaulins, most in the rubble of their prior homes. The onslaught by Israel left the open prison, which is Gaza, with little or no electricity, aid agencies have become very popular entities because unemployment is  100 % the charitable agencies buy sub-quality  blankets and other general goods, from Israel to donate to the people of Gaza. Most people stay in their homes, if they managed to keep a residence, in

bed to escape the bitter cold.

Individuals like Enas Mohmad has a Face Book page; https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008033869063,  where she asks people worldwide to give her money to help and to feed the children.  People like her are, in a small way, are  helping the local economy and helping the devastated children who seemed to be the target of the aggression.

The Israelis have destroyed most of the hospitals in Gaza, now they also control the lives of the sick and dying victims of the onslaught and at the gates which barriers Gaza into Israel.

Egypt have partnered with the Israelis to close the smuggling tunnels, the deliberate effect has left local retail business shuttered, as Israel prevents goods entering into Gaza, the merchandise which is allowed to enter Gaza, is of sub-quality, over priced in a manner which is abusive and unfair, all in favour of the Israelis.

First they destroy the city then they get paid to supply it with over priced, sub-quality goods  and services.

The Israelis have plundered Gaza with three wars in five years and broke it, the decade long economic blockade imposed by Israel, the one party rule by Hamas and the distant Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, have drove a double edged sword into the back of the rickety social system composure that was Gaza.

Ismail Haniyeh formally surrendered the bankrupt open prison to a unity government but this action did not equate to the release of the choke hold, by the war like neighbours of an otherwise peaceful Palestinian people, the resultant power-sharing agreement left Hamas’s forces in charge of security, however the otherwise incompetent Mr Abbas is always distrustful of any entity which does not comport to his model of appease with the Israelis.

Mr Abbas has dragged his foot over forwarding funds from Qatar to pay the salaries of Gaza’s civil servants, who have stepped down and reapply for their jobs, subject to Fatah’s vetting.

Hamas’s employees show up for work even though they have received only three partial salary payments in 18 months. “We won’t let Gaza collapse,” insists an officer manning Hamas’s passport-control office”.

Egypt’s strongman, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, has failed to lift border restrictions. The people of Gaza are in a death trove, the children of Gaza are especially hurt this is by expressed intention by the Israelis.

Israel’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, is sometimes referred to as a genetic psychopath, this condition has bred resilience to resist international pressure to open the borders allow food and medical materials and to care for the sick and dying.

The ceasefire was an insulting joke on the international community,  a deliberate non starter and an abject punishment to the people who are the victims of the blockage.

The money pledged for reconstruction eventually ends up in the hands of the same people who first destroyed the enclave. Hamas on the other hand has noting of value to demonstrate that it did any good.

The social media have exposed the whole morass for the hell that is in Gaza, a three thousand year old city. Israel has allowed ten percent of the allotted amount of building materials into Gaza,  but the people have no money to buy the materials. The local economy is totally bootstrapped.

Gaza’s children dream of escape from the enclave make such statements as “Daddy, why don’t we become Christian?” asks Walid, an eight-year-old boy, learning that Israel did a public relations stint, as a show-off gig for the international community, recently Israel have kidnapped two score of young boys, the boys were trying to get across the walled border.

Gaza is noting but a real prison where slow death plunder the lives of the victims who call Gaza their home.

“”WHEN you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.””
