Gaza Strip

I was trying to bite my tongue on the situation between Israel and Gaza for the longest, but it should be blatantly obvious by now that Israel has gone far beyond what was necessary to handle Hamas. The situation has caused some countries to stop supporting Israel until they come up with a non-violent solution that doesn’t have a 80 to 90% civilian death/injury rate. With that slither of land, citizens in Gaza have no where to go and no real secure shelter to shield themselves from.

Yesterday more than 200 citizens in Gaza were killed since the 72 hour ceasefire; the total death toll is an estimation of 10,000, missing children, and people injured severely. With a population of about 1.816 million, this can only be described as a genocide.
