That is how we should understand Israel’s assaults on forty-six of Gaza’s fishing boats, and its attacks (on Day 16 of Protective Edge) on agricultural sites in the Northern Gaza Strip and Gaza City. That is how we should understand Israel rendering two-thirds of Gaza’s wheat mills inoperative, and the deprivation of 3,000 of Gaza’s herders of animal feed (to say nothing of the loss of animal life). That is the implication of Israel damaging more than 20 health facilities, including a direct strike on al-Aqsa hospital and the destruction of the el-Wafa rehabilitation hospital with strikes on multiple days. That is how we should understand the intensification of the long-running degradation of housing and deliberate destruction and dismemberment of Gaza’s economy, to add to the misery and disease which are the inevitable consequence of the intentional denial of access to the basic requirements of civilized life : sewerage and clean water; shelter and electricity.
Before anyone attempts to defend the Terror State of Israel, they must consider, and then explain, the words of its leaders ….
“Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I : Yea, thine own lips testify against thee.” – Job 15:6
Three Israeli military operations in the past six years, in addition to eight years of economic blockade, have ravaged the already debilitated infrastructure of Gaza, shattered its productive base, left no time for meaningful reconstruction or economic recovery, and impoverished the Palestinian population.
‘Operation Protective Edge’, the most recent military operation, compounded already dire socio-economic conditions. The UN calls it the ‘de-development’ of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, a process whereby development is not merely hindered but reversed.
