animals need to be fed before slaughtering

Dear All

, please forgive me , what shall i tell you , shelling , shooting , Apachi heliocapters are in the skies of diffrent parts of Gaza , borders were opened today , to let in food and medications into Gaza !!!! feed us before killing !!!! 
 Israeli cabinet stated  : the army should have  the free hand ,to decide how to attack Gaza .

my friend Yohannes in Germany asked in his nice email :Mona are you still alive ? , iam alive and will try to tell you all  the truth as i used to do , i will keep fighting for peace and justice 


  • Wow i sure am glad your life sucks because you attack Israel with rockets on a daily basis even when israel isnt attacking you all, let me correct your little mistake, most of the people killed were militants, but you know if israeli civillians were killed you would be in the streets celebrating, so go pray to allah and dont forget to blow yourself up first.

  • I read your blog for awhile. It's heart breaking what's going on Gaza.
    I dont know how i can help really. Here in Iran they called us to give money and food. But i hope untill the time they bring them, borders stay opened. :(

  • Dear Mona,

    I have read the following article titled: Gaza humanitarian crisis worst in 40 years: report from Reuters.

    This article clearly confirms what you have been writing, although I never doubted your words. I am glad to see that the humanitarian disaster in Gaza is getting some widespread coverage in the international press. Unfortunately, I am very sorry to say that the American media is not talking about the situation in Gaza at all, except to report on Israel's fight with the Hamas militants. I hope the Reuters article will change this. I will continue to monitor the news here. I sometimes write to my U.S. Senators about issues that are of great concern to me. They approve large sums of money for Israel every year. It seems to me that the U.S. should have something to say about how Israel conducts itself! I will give some thought to a letter.

  • Hi Mona,

    Does your daughter watch the show "Pioneers of Tomorrow"? What does she think of it? What do you think of it?
    It sounds like an exciting show. To those of you who don't know the show, here's a quick summary:

  • I heard you on the Today programme on BBC Radio 4 this morning (Thursday 6th) and I thought I must read your blog and urge you to keep writing.
    I was in the Occupied West Bank last year at a conference at Birzeit University in Ramallah and I was so moved by the generosity of the Palestinian people. I tell people about the way in which every aspect of everyday life is made so utterly impossible for the Palestinians - please keep writing, you are being read, and many, many people heard you this morning.

  • Hi Mona,
    I follow the news about Gaza and I know how hard it's getting day after day. Yesterday we had the report of human rights organizations on the crisis going on there.
    I came across this investigative report in an American magazine (which I'm sure, you already knew about it) but it gives in detail how the US tried to stage a coup against Hamas having Fatah on his side:

  • This confrontation is a total disgrace.This is American democracy. If they agree, you are free. Fight on, the World is on your side.

  • Dear Mona, those who truly believe in peace and justice will recognize the injustice of occupation. Please know that the people of Gaza are faultless in the methods they take up to resist 60 years of hell on earth.

    To Alain, David, Ari, jfrancis and all the others seeking "balance" in the so-called Israeli/Palestine issue, please consider that knowing history, understanding privilege and subordination (do Israelis have to show ID cards to Palestinian soldiers to get to their low-paid jobs at the bottom of the heap?), and having a critical literacy of state manipulations is a start to "fairness". Like the Hezbollah of Lebanon, the Hamas is not the cause nor the reason for the continuing conflict. Their rockets are not 'balanced' with the military might of the Israeli war machine that is financed and armed by US war technology and expertise. Hamas and Hezbollah, the organizations themselves, and the rockets that they fire are a RESULT of decades long aggression by the militaristic Israeli regime, multiple stakeholders complicities and meddlings, ignoring the poverty of disadvantaged peoples.

    For the crimes happening now in Gaza, turn your Israeli-clouded eyes to blame US complicity, not Hamas. Here is a link to a detailed journalistic report about that:¤tPage=all

    As a non-native Canadian of privilege (I am of European descent), I share ground with privileged Israelis. First Nations peoples in Canada continue to suffer land theft and the theft of natural resources (the oil sands in Alberta is one such case). Canada is a settler nation like Israel, built through colonizing the indigenous peoples. The Canadian state continues to ignore First Nations peoples legitimate claims for restitution, and does not acknowledge the racism embedded in social institutions. It's no wonder Canada and the state of Israel are such friends these neoliberal days, they share ground on denying justice.

  • Why don't you ask to Egypt and focus always on Israël ?

  • Hi Mona.
    Be strong for you and for your peopla. European leaders should be ashamed for their behaviour... the reality is that nobody cares about people from Gaza...
    With love from Portugal.

  • To be more clear about my question:

    Why do you ask to your enemy, to the country that you want to see the destruction, to the people that you are fighting with, that they send you electricity, water, medics, food, gaz....You target them, you send them fighters (called also terrorists), you send them rockets and human bombs and you want to receive peace and food ? No kidding!

    Why don't you ask all your needs to your brothers, to Muslim countries, to your neighbours (Egypt), why don't you condemn Egypt for the wall they are building ?

    Sorry, even i can understand your distress, even i can be agree with you that israeli military reaction are often unbalanced, I cannot understand either your conplains about Israël. If you consider them as enemy, they will consider you as enemy too. I think that you would be more honest by conplaining about your friends, brothers who just don't care about you since 1948! Think about this !

  • Dear Mona, may the divine light watch over you and all the people of Palestine and the world. I pray for peace everyday, and I pray for all this terrible situation to end. I feel so powerless sometimes b/c I would love for the world leaders to have some common sense. I'm sending you a lot positive energy so you may have some more strength. With all my love!

  • Hello Mona,
    This is Jimena from Mexico City. I just want to say that I am with all of your people, because I am one of you. I am a human being and I will notn stand for this injustice. I am a person, a sister of yours and I will not cross my arms and do nothing.
    I know I cannot go to Gaza because I do not have the money, but this will not keep me from helping my brothers and sisters in Palestine.
    Just remember we love you very much and we will not forget you. Never.
    I will fight with you.

  • To all the Zionists who either lie or do not know what they are talking about, how dare you expect praise for letting people have a little of what you have taken from them.
    And when you are illegal occupiers, YOU are in the wrong obviously!The occupied, under international law are entitled to use whatever force required for their freedom!
    Palestinian - is not a religion!
    Israeli is. They do not want anyone who is not a Jew.Christians are Palstinians too and are every much a part of the resistance e.g George Habash.
    The reason no other country can come near to help, if you are so ignorant you need to be told is because of those hundreds of nukes that the Israelis have not signed the treaty over!They are given by the U.S so they can be basically a base for them in the region.
    They cannot provide anything for themselves because nothing is let in and nothing is let out.
    This is the nearest thing to the Warsaw Ghetto!
    Oh,how your ancestors would be so ashamed, that after what they suffered, thier own people would emulate the NAZIS!!
    After all the Palestinians had nothing to do with the persecution of the Jews.
    Israel was founded on terrorism, countless attacks on the people, Hanging our British soldiers from trees packed with explosives ready for the next soldier to get them down, blowing up the British in the King David hotel, bombing the ship U.S Liberty.
    If you really want peace and not ethnic cleansing for the land, then give them a home to call their own where they can be free and give the 5 MILLION refugees STILL stuck in camps after 40 and 60 years their right of return and maybe even the land which was stolen and is now illegally farmed by settlers.
    Moaning about everyone wanting your destruction, everyone hates you for what you have done to these people,it is not about religion but it becomes that. It is Palestine that has been wiped off the map!
    No justice no peace.
    If you are not happy there you could always bog off back to where you came from, like Brooklyn etc!
    It must be nice to claim TWO countries as your home when the Palestinians cannot have one.
    And there is no way I would roll over and accept it if the Italians turned up in my country,telling me they have the right because the Romans were here 2000 years ago, drove millions out into refugee camps into other countries, shoved the rest of us into one of the most densley populated pieces of land, surrounded us and kept us in abject poverty and with a soldier's boot firmly on our necks.
    No-one would!
