“Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced,” UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl said in a statement on Wednesday.

Theres so much crap going on and heart breaking casualties, im seriously considering just not reading about it.
I cant do anything about it, i know that sounds callous but i cant read about children being left messed up every week. But i need to know what my EU/UN/NATO is doing in my name about it - and its NOT enough and it makes me mad.

Doctors simply cannot help patients without water and electricity. That is a fact. That there is such a great need for emergency treatment in Gaza and not the same need in Israel is telling in and of itself. The Israelis are not suffering the same amount of injuries as the Gazans are. This war on Gaza is disproportionate. The Gazans do not have an Army and no where near the weapons that Israel has. The children of Gaza do not have the "iron dome" protection and warning sirens. They get warning pamphlets to go to a "safe" area and then that very area is b*mbed.
Hamas is a t*rrorist organization? What are our alphabet agencies then? Do they never do harm? It seems there are factions the world over that can do good and bad and often the lines are blurred relevant to what they do and why.
So much over kill in this entire scenario. Now, Israel is calling up 16,000 reserves to defend against those rusty old rockets an old guns and rocks. Will the troops have popcorn given as standard issue for troop moral?
