The past couple of days i didn't have regular access to the internet. I'm afraid i got my friend to worry again. since i didn't have internet to post what i write i thought about typing what goes around and now here i am posting the thoughts and events of the past couple of days.

19th of June:
today is the first day of the truce, a basic understanding of the truce would be saying no shooting from any side, it's a way to calm down the situation specially in Gaza which has been under siege for more than a year by now [started 15-6-07] carrying 180 souls , thousands immigrated, 85% of citizens became under poverty line, 96% of factories were closed, 67 thousands of factories employees became unemployed, estimation of one billion of economical loss... and more that the sky has witnessed this passed year. i do not think such a truce would make children forget that they lost their parents or their beloved ones, or would return to Ahmad the legs he lost during one of the strikes on the strip but i pray and i hope it would give for those who survived some peace... even if temporary!
the truce was suppose to be active at 6:00 a.m Palestine's time [3:00 a.m. GMT] and thank God it did. before that and at about 3:00 a.m. our time [12:00 a.m.GMT] the Israeli air forces striked a place in south Gaza killing one person and wounding more than four, some in a very critical situation that's without mentioning the financial loss of such a strike [i.e. buildings and shops in the area of the strike]. i was wondering... does anyone else have the same right to kill as the one that Israel has?! i dare you to find one. it just seems that Israel is happy with the idea of assassination!
in 2004 a prominent rabbi supported the killings of Palestinian civilians by Israeli occupation troops in the Gaza Strip, saying killing non-Jewish civilians is compatible with religious laws!!! that was Rabbi Dov Lior, Chairman of the Jewish Rabbinical Council, quoted as saying "during warfare, killing non-Jewish civilians is permitted if it saves Jewish lives" in other words he's saying that Jewish lives are more important than non-Jewish lives. i wish if i could ask him; aren't we all sons and daughters of Adam and Eve created by the same God?!
it is very sad to speak in God's name in approving the killing of His creation. one of the main commandments of the Torah is 'thou shall not murder'. God is Most merciful, i do not think such mercy would allow such murder and God knows best!
i don't know what else to say ... hopefully things would get better now.
