School in Sheikh Jarrah 'could constitute a threat to the facility and its combatants,' state says. NGO: 'The government has found a new excuse to prevent building schools in East Jerusalem.'00:01 11.02.16 | 0 comments
The level of cynicism here is extremely disturbing. Just b/c 50% of households in Gaza have computers (with only 30% of those having internet) certainly does not mean everything is rainbows and kittens there, OR that blockaded a ppl into a tiny piece of land is legal under international law (btw, 50% of households not having a computer? Do you know ANYONE that doesn't have a computer in their own home?) Let me tell you something. People find a way. In the Warsaw Ghetto, there was a symphony orchestra, schools and various cultural activities. They even had cafes (for a while at least). Now I'm not a fool like all of you, who will say anything to further their ideas, and I know that the Warsaw Ghetto and the situation in Gaza are not disasters on the same level, but my point remains the same. People find a way, and that does not discredit the reality that 90% of drinking water in Gaza is unsafe, the rolling, daily blackouts or the lack of building supplies.
