According to Ethan Bronner, "what most struck her, she says, was the depth of human experience.
and he explains:
“From the bullet hole in the wall above the child playing on his outdated computer in a middle-class home, to the couple having dinner sipping Coca-Cola smuggled in from Egypt, the situation in Gaza — the war, the blockade, Hamas — touches everyone,” she said. “I saw energetic, smart young women learning about the world in university, and I saw young girls who spent their days sorting through trash to find reusable materials to sell to factories for a few measly shekels. I saw happy families taking a break from their daily struggle to have a picnic on the beach, and met a traumatized family who hasn’t been to the beach in two years even though it’s only a 15-minute drive from their home.”
What I see is a people that refuses to free itself from the Hamas rule.
No unwillingness to seek to release themselves from the true occupation and oppression from which they suffer.
I guess it's all a matter of how you look at the situation.
