Salam,

I don't want to post the graphic pictures here as per our rules but I'd like to point out some articles about what is happening.

From the Times Online: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/middle_east/article5489317.ece?print=yes&randnum=1231682341736

Quote
In the emergency room of Al Shifa hospital in Gaza City, Dr Raed al-Arayni was entering his 12th day of nonstop work and was preparing for yet another operation when his worst nightmare came true.

The bloodied little boy being carried into the room by a neighbour was screaming at him. “Baba, baba [daddy, daddy],” the child cried.

“I did not recognise my own child because of his injuries,” recalled Arayni. “For a few seconds I couldn’t move, my knees became weak. I could barely stand at the sight of my child halfway between life and death.”

Running over he realised that both his sons – Hathifa, 7, and Abdul Rahman, 5 – were lying in his emergency room, severely wounded.

Tears streaming down his face, Arayni began working feverishly on Hathifa, who had the worst injuries. A chunk of shrapnel had pierced his chest, his right leg was broken and blood poured from his wounds.

A colleague began treating Abdul Rahman. The nerves in his broken left arm had been severed and he had no feeling in his hand. They were able to stabilise the two boys.

“I just thank God my children didn’t arrive to me in bits and pieces, missing body parts as the women and children I see arriving daily,” said Arayni, standing by Hathifa’s bedside, his face showing the exhaustion of almost two weeks of back-to-back operations. The slight, bearded surgeon had not returned home for 12 days,grab-bing a nap or a meal at the hospital when he could.

[...] The surgeon pushed aside the thought of his own children as the wounded poured in, sometimes so many that the operating floors were slick with blood. Injured men, women and children were piled in the corridors and surgeons commandeered the recovery room.

Quote
Ambulance driver Kayed Abu 'Okal told Asharq Al-Awsat about the horrific scene he encountered in the town of Beit Lahia, north of Gaza City: Stray dogs were feeding on the bodies of 4 civilians who were killed by an Israeli shell in the courtyard of their house 4 days earlier. The dead were 2-year-old Shahd, her 17-year-old brother Matar and 17-year-old cousin Mohamad, along with an unidentified person. Israeli troops had prevented ambulances from accessing the area for at least 4 days.

Abu 'Okal told the newspaper:

"I have seen a lot during my years of work at the Ministry of Health, especially scenes of martyrs who have been killed by Israeli occupation fire throughout the past years. But the sight that never leaves my memory is that of the innocent child from the Attar Family whose limbs were snapped off by stray dogs and only her torso remained".

Witnesses said the rest of Shahd's family members were taken prisoner by the Israeli army

Asalaamu Alaikum

Local press over here in the Middle East show the graphic pictures and its amazing how the expats see the Palestinian plight in a better context than I'm sure they would in the West.

Just shows you the power of the modern age media.


From sources here, I've heard that a lot of the aid trying to get to Gaza from the region just simply can't get through and there are trucks simply queuing at the border.


For all of us who have children, we can't even begin to imagine what our brothers and sisters are going through over there.

InshaAllah may Allah grant them relief soon.

Asalamu alaikum wrt wb,


All praise be to Allah.


In the West, they believe that it is distasteful to show pictures of the dead, yet I consider it much more offensive to be the ones doing the actual killing, or supporting it, then showing the pictures so the world can see the horrors of one's foreign policy.

I will search for a fiqh opinion on this issue, but I have heard the scholars strongly supporting the cameramen who put their lives in danger to show the pictures of the evil being done.  A picture is worth a million words, and it is all the more important when you have liars twisting the story and claiming babies and children are terrorists and that our tax dollars should be used to massacre them.


And Allah knows best.

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.

These bombs can't really be that "smart" can they if a third of the fatalities are actually innocent children.

There have been many articles written about how the purpose was to destroy and destroy civilians. This proves there were no real targets, just death and destruction. -- J.

Israeli troops shot and killed zoo animals

http://archive.gulfnews.com/articles/09/01/26/10278858.html

By Ashraf Helmi, Videographer, and Megan Hirons, Photographer
Published: January 25, 2009, 23:25

The Gaza Zoo reeks of death. But zookeeper Emad Jameel Qasim doesn't appear to react to the stench as he walks around the animals' enclosures.

Watch video of Gaza zoo carnage

A month ago, it was attracting families - he says the zoo drew up to 1,000 visitors each day. He points at the foot-long hole in the camel in one of the enclosures.

"This camel was pregnant, a missile went into her back," he tells us. "Look, look at her face. She was in pain when she died."

Around every corner, inside almost every cage are dead animals, who have been lying in their cages since the Israeli incursion.

Qasim doesn't understand why they chose to destroy his zoo. And it's difficult to disagree with him. Most of them have been shot at point blank range.

"The first thing the Israelis did was shoot at the lions - the animals ran out of their cage and into the office building. Actually they hid there."

The two lions are back in their enclosure. The female is pregnant, and lies heavily on the ground, occasionally swishing her tail. Qasim stands unusually close to them, but they don't seem bothered by his presence.

As he takes us around, he is obviously appalled at the state of the animals. The few animals that have survived appear weak and disturbed.

"The foxes ate each other because we couldn't get to them in time. We had many here." There are carcasses everywhere and the last surviving fox is quivering in the corner.

The zoo opened in late 2005, with money from local and international NGOs. There were 40 types of animals, a children's library, a playground and cultural centre housed at the facility.

Inside the main building, soldiers defaced the walls, ripped out one of the toilets and removed all of the hard drives from the office computers. We asked him why they targeted the zoo. He laughs. "I don't know. You have to go and ask the Israelis. This is a place where people come to relax and enjoy themselves. It's not a place of politics."

Israel has accused Hamas of firing rockets from civilian areas. Qasim reacts angrily when we raise the subject.

"Let me answer that with a question. We are under attack. There was not a single person in this zoo. Just the animals. We all fled before they came. What purpose does it serve to walk around shooting animals and destroying the place?"

Inside one cage lie three dead monkeys and another two in the cage beside them. Two more escaped and have yet to return. He points to a clay pot. "They tried to hide", he says of a mother and baby half-tucked inside.

Qasim says that his main two priorities at the moment are rebuilding the zoo and taking the Israeli army to court. For the first, he says he will need close to $200,000(Dh734,000) to return the zoo to its former state - and he wants the Israelis to cover the costs. "They have to pay me for all this damage."

We ask him why it's so important for Gaza to have a zoo. "During the past four years it was the most popular place for kids. They came from all over the Gaza Strip. There was nowhere else for people to go."
