As the troops enter, we fear the worst
I hope that everyone reads this article and gets a sense of how this invasion and this ongoing violence in Gaza is affecting the regular civilian population, who are being punished for simply living (under Hamas.)
How much worse can it get? After a horrifying week, the Israelis have arrived once again at our doorstep. What now? Already we have experienced so much terror and want.
When the Israeli strikes first began, my wife and I were worrying about lentils. She said we could not have lentil soup for lunch because there were no lentils in the shops. Nor any rice or flour. Suddenly there was a deafening noise, followed by a succession of blasts the likes of which I had never experienced. Our house was rocking, the windows rattling in their panes.
