I received a gift from Palestine today. My friend Yassmin Ben has published her book “Through the eyes of a women”. Yasmin works for SOS Gaza Children organization and is also continuing her education She is an amazing person and her book is a very well written and informative. A bit if insight into the struggles of women because of the occupation. Especially when the struggle hits home and communities. A man without a job, a home, a family, the stress and struggle through the eyes of its women. If you wish to buy it the link is here:

My friends: For those that do not understand the situation. Palestinians can not leave. They are trapped. With 2% clean drinking water, 4 hrs a day electricity and Israel constantly stealing their land. Destroying their homes, farms, schools and cultural buildings we are witnessing something out of a Ww2 history book. A genocide. Please take a stand, educate yourself and if it all possible contribute in any way possible to help. With America’s latest cuts to Palestine it is unacceptable. Most of the population is unemployed and can not work due to Israel’s checkpoints and constant terrorizing of its people and the murdering of its children.

If anyone is wondering why I am so passionate about Palestine. Well. It’s the human thing to do but here in Canada we were taught about the holocaust and to be sympathetic to Jews. Fuck that. School taught me the words “Never Again”. Never again is what isn’t happening and the UN and neighbouring countries do nothing. Partially because of the USA letting Israel get away with Genocide. That’s all for now.

Life in the Gaza Strip

Life in the Gaza Strip

Life in the Gaza Strip is difficult. The conflict is still there, as well as poverty and there is just enough fuel to provide electricity a few hours a day. Two million people live in this 365 km2 territory, which makes it the most populous place in the world. The borders with their neighbors, Egypt and Israel are both closed and traveling in these countries is extremely controlled. Life over there is often compared to that of an open prison, or worse. In this picture, girls watch the sunset from the port of Gaza City. Living in Gaza is undeniably difficult but being a woman there is so much more.

Women are the real invisible heroines of Gaza.

Women, real invisible heroines of Gaza

Women and children are particularly vulnerable in times of war and blockade. Since 2007, Israel and Egypt have imposed a land, air and sea blockade of the Gaza Strip. They control all borders and the movement of people and goods authorized to enter and leave the band. On this small piece of land, how do women manage to live their lives in such terrible conditions?




In 2015, more than 8% of Gazan households were headed by women. According to the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), nearly 800 women have been widowed as a result of the Israeli terror of 2014. Nearly 24,000 girls and 23,000 women are still displaced as a result of the destruction or damage to their homes. their homes during hostilities. They were forced into temporary accommodation in foster homes, rented apartments, prefabricated units, tents and makeshift shelters and, for some, in the rubble of their old homes. These precarious dwellings pose a series of protection problems.

According to the latest figures, more than 70% of households receive running water only 6 to 8 hours every few days, while the entire population suffers from planned power cuts of 12 to 14 hours a day , as Israeli bombs destroyed power plants. This decline in basic services has undermined the ability of most women and girls to engage in income-generating activities or to have time for their own needs. This is also linked to the traditional division of labor in Palestinian society, where women and girls bear primary responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the home, which now takes longer.




Gazan cuisine is similar to the culinary styles adopted by the rest of the Levant countries and is strongly influenced by the Mediterranean coast. Gaza had a large fishing industry, with fish being the staple food for most people in the region. And women and girls are highly skilled in fish-based preparations. One of the popular dishes was a grilled fish stuffed with coriander, garlic, red pepper and cumin and marinated in a mixture of coriander, red pepper, caraway and lemons. This is now history for most people since 2014, the Israeli Navy has attacked fishermen more than 300 times. Over the last two years, the Israeli Navy has killed 9 fishermen and has arrested 422. According to the Oslo Accords the fishing limit from the coast should be 20 nautical miles, but Palestinian fishermen can at most fishing 3 nautical miles from the beach, where the fish are too small and insufficient to feed a family.

Education is supposed to create a starting point for paid jobs, but not in a Gaza blockaded and bombed. While both sexes attend schools and universities, years of underfunding have overburdened and amputated the education system in Gaza, with nearly 95% of schools operating in dual rotation, with a morning class and one of afternoon. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) has launched a campaign for healthy lifestyles in Gaza schools, aimed at educating educational staff, students , refugee and other communities to promote a healthy school environment.

Most employed women are concentrated in two economic sectors. According to the Palestine Office of UN Women, 76% of Palestinian women in Gaza work in services and only 17.5% in agriculture. The unemployment rate is highest among women: 82.6% of women aged 15-29, 74% of single women, 63.6% of married women, compared to 37.4% of men (OCHA). Many educated mothers are more or less alone because they are active in local politics and looking for jobs, while caring for their children, while their husbands enter and leave Israeli prisons.

Some women are trying to create their own jobs. One such initiative is “6 Fleurs”, which was created in 2014. Instead of giving their work, some women started to make and sell traditional Gazanese embroidery. After a successful exhibition, they sent some of their work to Qatar and had recipes. But when they wanted to send their work to other countries, Israel stopped them – another way for Israel to prevent Palestinians in Gaza from flourishing.

Women are the real invisible heroines of Gaza.

Israel pounds Gaza, killing a pregnant woman and her child

At least three Palestinians, including a pregnant woman and her 18-month-old child, were killed by Israeli air attacks and artillery shelling on the besieged Gaza Strip.

Israeli launched more than 140 attacks after about 150 rockets were fired from the coastal enclave, injuring at least six people in Israel.

 




Israel’s military on Thursday warned Hamas against a further escalation in violence, and Israeli media said officials were considering evacuating residents from areas near the Gaza border.

“The way things continue to play out is significant. Hamas will understand in the coming hours, as in the past months, that this is not the direction it wants to choose,” a senior military official was quoted as saying on the military’s Twitter account.

Military officials were quoted as saying by local media that Israel is close to a military operation in Gaza in which “Hamas will be hit hard.”




Yuval Steinitz, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s inner cabinet, told Israel Radio: “We are not eager for war and are not interested in a broader confrontation, but at the same time it could certainly happen because we will not make any concessions to Hamas.”

The tragic situation in Gaza

Nearly two million people are stranded in Gaza, with very limited access to the most essential services. Deprived of the right to move, millions of Palestinians find themselves separated from their families and have no prospects.

Although illegal, the Israeli blockade has been in place for more than ten years. The consequences are immense and the humanitarian needs gigantic: the blockade has ravaged the Gaza economy and restricted access to food, water and essential services such as health and education. By preventing most residents from leaving Gaza, they also cut ties between Palestinians.

The blockade also prevents trade with the West Bank or foreign markets, and restricts the entry of essential building materials. General fuel shortages result in power outages lasting up to 20 hours each day, resulting in many failures in the water and sanitation systems and the difficulty for hospitals, schools, and small businesses to continue operating.

80% of the population is dependent on humanitarian aid. Many key industries have been decimated and 50% of youth are unemployed, the highest unemployment rate in the world.

In light of the tragic conditions In Gaza strip, SOS Gaza children team is working to highlight the lives of children in this forgotten area.
