From Gaza, with Love

home sweet home ...I wonder

All that is happening right now in Gaza

26th of July
6:45 pm
Al Awda Hospital Emergency Room
Jabalia refugee camp

Shahd, an 8 month baby girl, and Maria, a 4 year old child, arrived at the hospital dead.

Somia and her remaining two daughters arrived at the hospital suffering from serious injuries. The 2 girls are now in the operating room where doctors are trying hard to save their lives. The mother’s injuries are very critical; she was referred to Gaza City's central hospital, Al Shifa, for treatment.

Samir, an extremely traumatized husband and father, was unable to believe what happened to his family.

Early this evening an Israeli army tank launched one missile at this family’s home inside Jablia refugee camp. The Israelis are conducting a large-scale raid against the camp and the eastern part of Gaza City.

This assault started in the early hours of this morning. At 4 am loud explosions from the sea, air and land woke me and all the of Gaza City and Jabalia's citizens. I did not know what was happening until I switched on my little battery powered radio. The death toll reached 24, a number that might increase. Tens of injured are being sent to all of the town’s different hospitals including Al-Awda in Jabalia.

Many homes were demolished, many places are hazardous to reach. The roads are deserted and the general mood is anxiety and insecurity. Many children lost their parents, many parents lost their children. Our news isn’t covered; people are feeling disappointed, devastated and abandoned by the world’s reaction, especially the governments.

Your solidarity is highly needed at these times. Please spread the truth - the Israeli occupying force is using excessive force in Gaza and Lebanon.

End occupation! End the aggression against Palestinians and Lebanese!

Yours in love and solidarity,


  • Mona, I am angered by the worlds reaction to what is happening. What is wrong with people can they not see the truth and the slaughtering of inocent people? Do they not have a heart or have they grown cold? My heart goes out to all in Palestine and Lebanon for what is happening.

    Stay safe Mona.
    God Be With You

  • I'd like to apoligize for my Prime Ministers, Stephen Harper, remarks through out this horrible attack on civilians.

    We are trying hard to force the present government to listen to the people. Slowly I believe they're coming around, Hang in there Mona.

  • “I am against the rose beds

    turning into trenches,

    And yet when fire...

    cremates my friends,

    my youth…

    and my country

    How can I stop a poem

    from becoming a gun?”

  • Neo-Cons MUST Be Exposed

    "The Splash art, the political cartoons, and many articles on Jeff’s website target George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld as the villains in the U.S. Government.

    Indeed, they are all involved in the Planned Destruction of America. But they are just the puppets out in front.

    They have very little real power.

    Impeachment of President Bush would accomplish nothing. The Neo-Cons who control him would remain in position and replace Bush with just another puppet. And nothing would change!

    These unelected infiltrators would continue to run the government from behind the scenes.

    Almost no mention is made of these masterminds of evil behind the scenes (the real Axis of Evil), the puppet Masters who manipulate Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld.

    These are the Neo-Conservatives, “Neo-Cons” for short, who are ALL Jewish, Zionist, Trotskyite-Communists who now masquerade as “Republicans”.
    They include:

    William Kristol, (the son of Communist Irving Kristol, author of Memoirs of a Trotskyite), the editor of The Weekly Standard and a frequent political commentator on the totally Zionist Jewish-controlled media,

    Paul Wolfowitz, former Under Secretary of Defense (who for years has held the puppet strings of Donald Rumsfeld) and who now is head of the World Bank,

    Douglas Feith, underling to Wolfowitz,

    Richard Perle, Advisor to the Pentagon,

    Natan Sharansky, Ariel Sharon’s Israeli Ambassador to the Jewish Diaspora (Jews around the world) who, according to George W. Bush, wrote, or supplied the ideas for the writing of at least one of George W. Bush’s recent major speeches.

    Many of these infiltrators have dual citizenship in the U.S. AND in Israel.

    They have taken over our government. And, unfortunately, their actions boldly proclaim that their allegiance is to Israel - and not to America!

    These dangerous men, and many others like them, who hold positions of power in our government, are the ones who are the real destroyers of America.

    They are the ones who should be exposed!"
