Post Who Am I?
This story is based on the true events of the Gaza Holocaust. Israel launched its deadly attack on ‎besieged Gaza on Saturday, December 27, 2008 through January 22, 2009 and beyond. Gaza Strip was under siege by Israel for three years. ‎

If you went to the Gaza Strip, you would see empty storehouses and cemeteries growing larger – it ‎is too hard to keep a tight hold on one’s emotions. If you strolled near the outpost of the city, you ‎would feel the uncertain freedom or even a future.‎

This made it so had for the world to sympathize anymore with the Jews’ holocaust, after the ‎holocaust they committed in the Gaza Enclave.‎

Here the story goes...‎

I am six years old; I used to live in a small place in besieged Gaza with my mom, dad and three ‎brothers. My dad used to go every day to work, while my mom stayed at home to take care of ‎us, especially my five months old baby brother.‎

I was so happy this September because it was my first day of school. I was then old enough to be ‎in grade one, I would make many friends, we would grow up together and who knows, maybe ‎we would all go to the same university and work at the same place too.‎

I love my family and like to go out every weekend to play soccer with my neighbours.‎
I am doing great at school and my teachers are very proud of me. It is my third month in school ‎and I already made three close friends, we want to be together forever.‎

Mom said that I had to start wearing heavy clothes because by the end of December, it would ‎get much colder and she was worried that I might catch cold.‎

Friday was our weekend and we would all go to the mosque close by to pray. I love it there; it ‎felt so peaceful. After that, we would all go for lunch at my cousins’ home.‎

Tomorrow is a new day at school; I could not sleep the night because we had a field trip. For the ‎first time in my life, I was going on a field trip with my friends. I went to sleep dreaming of it.‎

I heard a big bang and felt as if the ground was shaking, I thought that the school bus took the ‎wrong route to the field trip or one of its tires blew up. Suddenly, I woke up; I was not in the ‎school bus, it was not the tire that blew up. What was that then!‎

My mom came dashing into my bedroom, my two brothers were still in their pyjamas, and my ‎dad was carrying my baby brother. Where are we going? What was that noise? Am I not going to ‎the field trip?‎

There was no answer, we just fled our home and went to the mosque. At the mosque, there were ‎my other neighbours some of my friends and many more people. What is going on mom? Today ‎is Saturday; I must go to school now!‎

The big blowing noise started to get louder, children started to cry, I felt hungry and...‎
Dad said, school will be closed today son, I do not know when it would open. Aeroplanes are ‎dropping bombs, we do not know if our home is safe. Dad, I am hungry!‎
Dad left the mosque with some other men to bring some food.‎

I asked my mom, who were those people? Why were they sending their aeroplanes to hit our ‎homes? What did they want from us?‎
Mom said, it was Israeli aeroplanes, they did not like us to have any kind of weapons to protect ‎ourselves, and they do not want to see us here. But why mom? This is where we were born and ‎this is our land! That is exactly why son, because we are Palestinians, because we are Muslims, ‎and they do not want us to be here in besieged Gaza anymore.‎

Dad came with some food and water and said, be careful we might not be able to get more food ‎afterwards. Dad said that many buildings were destroyed, black smoke was all over and there ‎was complete chaos. We heard boisterous ambulance sirens and other cars screeching to a halt.‎

The ground shook again and a big opening on the sidewall of the mosque suddenly appeared,‎
people were trying to transfer wounded women and children to the hospital.‎
Everyone was running everywhere, babies were crying, blood was all over, people were covered ‎with dust, some were trying to pull others from under the rubbles, the aeroplanes were ‎bombarding us from every direction.‎

Mom took me, my brothers and ran out; we did not know what hit us! We did not know where ‎to go! I looked around only to see our neighbourhood destroyed. I wish everything would stop, ‎please stop. If you love God stop, just stop!‎

We went inside one of the houses and hid there. After a while a few soldiers found us, they had ‎their huge guns pointed at my brother’s chest and they fired.‎
My mom screamed and fell over my brother trying to wake him up, my baby brother was crying. ‎The soldiers kicked us out. We kept running. I could see fireworks in the horizon, except they ‎were all white and fell on the ground instead of spreading colourfully in the sky, and then I saw ‎something fell on a woman and her baby, white smoke came out and she started to burn. ‎

A car came, picked us up and took us to the hospital, the woman was my mom and the baby was ‎my baby brother, his face and chest were so red and looked very strange.‎
I looked around for my dad, but he was not there, one doctor said that my mom would be all ‎right.‎

He gave me some water. I sipped half and went to give my mom the other half; I told her that ‎the doctor said that she would be ok. I told her that soon they would stop, I told her not to ‎worry and that I would take care of her until my dad comes back right mom?‎

Mom! Mom... mom... maaaaaaa

The six years old boy’s life will never be peaceful anymore...‎

Zionism has always been carrying out the policy of the “burnt land ‎”, under the banner of ‎extending their land from The Nile to The Euphrates Rivers ‎, no matter if that was over the dead ‎bodies of the Palestinians or any other humans; the end justifies the means.‎

‎‘The Guardian’ has obtained vivid footage of the effect of white phosphorus ‎ allegedly used by ‎Israel during a bomb attack on Gaza (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jan/20/gaza-white-‎phosphorus)‎ ‎. ‎

The result – this time around too - was the disfiguration and destruction of Gaza City, one can ‎look there at the face of hunger and plagues, the face of fire and the face of death; worst of all - ‎the face of betrayal and the dreams that have not been fulfilled.‎

It is important to note that the annexation of Jerusalem by Israel is illegal under international law.
