'Dutch Children Protest the Killing of their Palestinian Peers'
Dutch children have taken part of a short movie to protest against the continuing Israeli bombings of Palestinian civilians; children in particular. In a short video by filmmaker Abdelkarim El-Fassi, eight Dutch children tell the story of eight Palestinian children killed by Israel.
War, bombs, terror. The video tells exactly where the children were at the time of their death. Some were on Facebook, while others were greeted with violence that no innocent person should be exposed to, while sleeping or while watching a World Cup match.
From the year 2000, every three days, a Palestinian child has been killed at the hands of Israeli forces, a appalling and confrontational number. In recent days, during the ground offensive on the 'open air prison' GAZA, this average only increased.
"I am no longer here, do you care?" is an awareness campaign to bring injustice taking place in Palestine closer to home This is necessary because the disproportionate actions of Israel, which violates many international and human rights, have not been condemned.
Is the life of a Palestinian child worth less?
The recent Israeli attacks on Gaza have slaughtered more than 160 innocent children, and counting. Such an inhumane policy should cease as soon as possible. Therefore El Fassi start this campaign that brings the innocence of hundreds of now deceased Palestinian children forward.
El Fassi had previously made a video denouncing the injustice in Palestine in 2012; the video on Mahmoud Sarsak went viral. Mahmoud Sarsak is a Palestinian footballer who went on hunger strike for more than 200 days because he was arbitrarily arrested and locked up in an Israeli jail without trial. Because of international pressure, he was finally released. Are we going to get that done now? #doyoucare?
Something to mention...
FACEBOOK didn't let me post that video by (as usual) just add the link to youtube. I had to "trick" them and add it via a picture.
BEIT HANOUN, Gaza Strip - At Kamal Adwan hospital, the ambulances arrived unusually full with several injured at once. While this is becoming an increasingly regular sight in Gaza, there was something new about these ambulance that were rushing in people from a UNRWA school at Beit Hanoun.
Everyone of those injured or killed had hoped that they would be safe under the UN’s protection. But they were not. In recent weeks, people have been flocking to UN-run shelters and the UN said it was sheltering 117,469 displaced Palestinians sheltering at 77 schools before today’s bombing. This is more than double the number at the peak of the 2008-2009 Israeli incursion, but many of these internal refugees now feel like they have been left with literally nowhere else to go, now that even the UN schools have succumbed to the Israeli bombardment.
The scenes at the school in northern Gaza are horrific. The peaceful light blue walls of UNRWA schools are still spattered with blood. The children who once studied here, suddenly forced to see another face of their school.
The black and white floor is covered with pools of blood, with a blood soaked blanket and a pair of lonely sandals scattered nearby. The blood belongs to the people who were fasting and were waiting to break their fast three hours later.
Medics informed MEE that out of this single school massacre, 18 people, including a baby, have been killed and over 200 were injured.
Since the attack the panic levels among the already frightened families have reached new levels. Women and children have now fled the school and are taking refuge in hospitals, but these are also full and struggling to cope.
The sheer influx of wounded is too much for one hospital, forcing causalities to be sent to four different hospitals: Beit Hanoun, Kamal Adwan, al-Awda and Shifa hospital.
It is an exhausting feat for a mother to go by foot, searching haphazardly for her children who could be in any one of these four hospitals scattered throughout Gaza. Several people have still not been accounted for, with relatives continuing their frantic search.
SAVE GAZA!!! ...ACT NOW!!! ... "Israel is deliberately targeting children, random shelling at everything, we cannot even list the number of dead, or the number of whole families dead, there are too many are coming in too fast to count... and they are going crazy, shelling whole buildings randomly without emptying them... Ive never seen anything like it before, its never been this bad, not in 2009, not in 2012, this is much worse, MUCH worse... we are shocked, why are no governments standing up for us?"
