The Plight Of The Palestinians In Ten Tweets

For those who struggle to understand the hardship Palestinians are going through, here’s their plight presented in 10 tweets. It goes without saying, share and follow the accounts below.

1. David Ward, Member of Parliament, United Kingdom

The big question is – if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? – probably yes

2. Jon Snow, British journalist and presenter

If you strangle a people, deny them supply, for years, extreme reaction is inevitable. the one begets the other.

3. Jon Snow, British journalist and presenter

Were any other country on Earth doing what is being done in Gaza, there would be worldwide uproar

4. Mehdi Hasan, Huffington Post UK’s political director

Can the media stop allowing Israel apologists to say Gaza isn’t occupied? Israel controls Gaza’s airspace, borders and coastal waters.

5. Chris Gunness, UNRWA Spokesman

Imagine being a 5 year old in #Gaza.This is the 3rd terrifying bombardment in your short life. Where else have 5 year olds suffered thus? RT

6. Ferrari Sheppard, Artist

80% of Palestinians in Gaza are refugees, descendants of ppl forced off their land in what is now Israel. There are no bomb shelters in Gaza

7. Abby Martin, TV anchor for the channel Russia Today in the USA

Can’t imagine any other country being able to kill 600 people & claim the victims killed themselves, rather than the bombs.

8. Jermy Bowen, BBC Middle East Editor

Grotesque, brutal statistic. @UNOCHA: In #Gaza, one child has been killed every hour for the past two days. http://www.ochaopt.org/documents/ocha_opt_sitrep_23_07_2014.pdf

Jemima Khan ‏@Jemima_Khan Jul 17 Gaza- an open air prison, its border, waters, resources, airspace & power illegally controlled by Israel. Read this: http://tinyurl.com/qbsbxhd

  1. It is totally an act of coward by Israeli military. They are killing innocents,children,women’s and blaming gazans…

  2. No words for what israelis are doing inhuman, unimaginable,isolation & war crime of all time but i cant leave without thanking you all for ur moral support& humanity to the pple of palestine.

  3. Thanks Yvonne! a concise, yet brilliant expose. Using social media( a boon we never enjoyed in the past)to tell a story the world would have never heard otherwise.

  4. I am citizen of Canada who is peace keeping country and I am very shameful about the GOVT. who is supporting Israel and even people are not protesting against Israel. It is all fake and double standard in Canada, USA, UK and all so called civilized countries who support Israel, for killing innocent civilians specially children.

  5. Question is why UN is taking any initiative to stop this cold blooded killing of innocent men women & most venerable our kids of GAZA, I condem Israel’s act of state terrorism, end the occupation free Gaza, so that our brothers & sisters leave peacefully in Palestine.

  6. The real and the big question is, WHY isn’t the world doing anything about this ???Why?? What’s the real reason?? Are some of these nations provoking a world war three?? So millions more can die…I guess for some people the earth has become too small for all of us…sad.

  7. Israel are fighting us openly, what about Saudi monkeys (read Sheikhs)? What about ‘themselves calling Salafis’ who are claiming propagating real Islam?

    • why to blame saudis or salafies alone what other shit r doing ,may they be sunnies or shias or any other dame fellow or a group or a govt. and above all what u and me r doing . cannot we even demonstrate every day through out the world and press our govts. to take action especially the muslim govts. no we r all just praying with our hands tide behind our backs and blaming xy and z

  8. The children, the women and the vulnerable elderly people including the thriving youngsters have just plunged into the unfathomable plight the human history has ever watched in Gaza. The veracity of the trauma has been able to draw people from all walks of life of the world, indiscriminately of their caste and creed, rites and religion.

    Yet, the world leaders, who very often wreck their brains, lose their voices, in screaming for the sensible issues like Malaysian Airline crash or Tsunami (we appreciate rather being critic); they hardly utter a single word for the traumatised civilians, more than 80% of whom are women and children when 50% are merely under-aged, in Palesine. They even didn’t send a message to the “Terrorsits”(according to their definition!) Israel for ethnic cleansing in the form of manslaughter in Gaza.

    Nevertheless, the UNO has feebly muttered pointing to the carnage “…..might be genocide!” at the eleventh hour, whilst in the meantime Israel smashed the most of the infra-structure including a school set up as a shelter by the UN.

    Unfortunately though the nature of the fire is to swallow its launcher, the fire that is set today in Gaza by Israeli settlers, will one day devour their masters.

  9. i am not shocked for what Israelis r doing because they r doing it since the day of their occupation .i am shocked what we Muslims r doing just praying or giving some bucks.we r a billion + living in 50 + Muslim countries and still just praying. aren’t we afraid of Allah’s wrath for our criminal silence

  10. I do not know what type of world we have to live in future .Because in the name of “defence right” no innocent person will be safe from the bombardment or attack any government can launch ruthlessly.The justification will be sought from the brutal inhuman and criminal actions of Israel.The tacit approval of all this mayhem by the western powers is pointing towards this futurist world we all have to live as every care and consideration for human child or woman rights has been thrown to the winds by Zionists during recent crusade against hapless civilians of Gaza

  11. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of phistine, Gaza and west bank. This madness of the zionists has no end. The whole World needs to wake up and stand up in any every way. I have lost my sleep and i wont be celebrating eid. House pakis we have a problem you are selling israeli zionist apartheid settler dates soft drinks and more, by the way im a field paki similar to brother Malcolm X. “A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything”

    The Arabs are semites too you imbecile dastard fools. This is the zionists folly.
    BBC biggest brainwashing corporation. We in England pay to be brainwashed.

  14. Every jihadi zionist black bart should be arrested on the way back to so called democrazy countries after murdering innocent people.

  15. ” Your not to be so blindwith patriotism that you cant face reality. Wrong is wrong no matter who does it or says it. Malcolm x

    “The duty of a true patriot is to protect his Country from its Government .” Aldous Huxley

    ” The Zion ists argument to justify Israels present occupation of Arab Palestine has no intelligent or legal basis in history.” Malcolm XXX

    “Ignorance and inconsideration are the two great causes of the ruin of mankind.”

    ” There are more fools in the World than there are people” Heinrich Hine. SO TRUE

  16. I don’t trust the UN (united Nazis) how the hell can they allow massacres on this scale to go on. They are there to protect the Zionist state. Humans need to wake up entirely no matter were we are against this madness. We need a new revolution in Egypt and Zio Jordan and all over the World where people are oppressed no matter what color, creed or religion they are.We all resonate on the same frequency. Where are the South Africans when the Palestinians need your help? the Palestinians were there for you when you needed help!!!
    May i remind Africa that Uncle Zio Sam is coming back there.
