Wow this is one of the only MSM articles I have ever read describing the plight of the Gazans. It's been 3 years and all I can ever remember reading in the mainstream press is that Gaza is a terrorist haven bent on destroying Israel.

So sadly I see this article as "Breaking Alternative News" due to the fact this side of the story is rarely (if ever) presented in the US mainstream press.
