"Sderot cinema. Israelis bringing chairs 2 hilltop in sderot 2 watch latest from Gaza. Clapping when blasts are heard." - A tweet by Allan Sørensen, a Danish journalist for the newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad,
The paper reported that the gathering involved more than 50 people who had transformed the hill into something “most closely resembling the front row of a reality war theatre”. It said that people were seen taking popcorn up onto the hill with their chairs, and that they sat cheerfully smoking hookahs.
It is the 5th day since Israel has stopped all water supply to Gaza

Israel would have us believe that bombing civilian homes, hospitals & public infrastructure is a compromise. It is simply barbarous violence. Homelessness, shattered limbs, families frantically digging through rubble to find loves ones, this is what Israel has brought to Gaza. That our tax dollars fund the weapons tearing apart the people of Gaza should outrage us all. We are not silent actors. We are complicit.
"Stop pretending the US is an uninvolved, helpless party in the Israeli assault on Gaza. The Obama administration’s unstinting financial, military and diplomatic support for Israel is a key enabling force in the conflict." .. (Glenn Greenwald, from this article)

Every single member of my family on both sides was exterminated. Both of my parents were in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. And it is precisely and exactly because of the lessons my parents taught me and my two siblings that I will not be silent when Israel commits its crimes against the Palestinians.
We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.
