One of the manifestations of the suffering of the people of the Gaza Strip who have been under a tight blockade for 13 years is that the electric current only works for them (4 hours, on average). Therefore, those whose financial resources allow them – and the least of them among the two million people in the Strip – are forced to search for energy sources Alternative. The catastrophe is embodied in the poor who resort to lighting their dilapidated and miserable homes with candles, then the fires that take away lives and property burn, and the last of them were three children from the Al-Hazen family, who were burned and charred their fresh bodies in Nuseirat camp because of a candle at the beginning of this September, and the reason of course is the blackout due to the unjust Israeli blockade. The oppressor.
Slow death, surrender, or war
Poverty and unemployment are killing the people of Gaza, and the blockade is killing them in a slow death manner, and the Corona pandemic, which they were comfortable with, has been accused of increasing their misery and pain, without remorse or invoking fancy expressions; What is required from Gaza is for the resistance factions in it, especially (Hamas) to hand over their weapons, especially rockets and missiles, in order to reduce this siege to an extent that allows the people of Gaza to practice normal, routine things that any other population gathering in the twenty-first century would do. Otherwise, the slow death On the back of the siege, the people will be ravaged, and the resistance factions are not strangers or emergents, but rather they are the people of the Gaza Strip who were born and raised in it. The third option after a slow death or humiliating and humiliating surrender, is a fierce war in which the occupation leaders intend to kill the largest possible number of Gazans, especially children, women, and defenseless civilians, and experiences are known, with the difference that the number of dead and the size of the destruction will be times what was the case in previous rounds!
Knock walls with balloons
But Gaza refused to surrender and will continue to refuse it, with the help of God, until God decides something that has been in effect, and its people have lost their patience with the siege and the slow, orderly death that eliminates the hopes of the youth who make up the largest segment of its population. In light of an Arab situation, he chose either to watch or scramble to normalize relations with (yesterday’s enemies), and an international situation bends over the leaders of the occupation out of fear, greed, or hatred for this people. The resistance in Gaza believed that if war was imposed on it, it would fight it valiantly, but it would try to avoid it, or at least postpone it, because every day that passes is in the balance of strengthening and accumulating its fighting capabilities, as it has become known to everyone near and far.
Gaza, which has always dazzled the enemy, friend and observer, with its creativity and ideas, decided to knock the walls of the siege tank, so it set off incendiary balloons, the cost of which was very simple, but the effect was great. Hundreds of fires erupted, which caused great material damage in the area of the settlements on the Gaza Strip and the Western Negev, and it is known that the occupation does not care much about material losses. Occupied Palestine is not with missiles, missiles and infiltration operations, but in a simple manner, the leaders of the occupation and its media have not ceased to describe it as primitive!
Escalate down to shaky calm
Here, the occupation decided to deal with its well-known method (the apostate arrow) in order to change the equation and upset the rules of the game that has been going on for years, so it decided to deal with incendiary balloons as it dealt with missiles by responding by launching missiles at resistance sites and agricultural lands and so on using warplanes and tanks, while tightening the siege by preventing fishermen from sailing. To capture their livelihood, the crossings are closed, and the entry of materials that are already scarce through the crossings is prevented, including the fuel needed to operate the power plant. The resistance factions do not adopt the launch of balloons and consider them to be a form of popular resistance that rejects the siege, and their launchers use the names of organizations and groups that are not known, but the truth is that the resistance factions are the ones that hold the rudder and do not launch the balloons without their knowledge, funding or actual participation, and they do not stop without a signal from them.
Here, the resistance factions launched a carefully thought-out missile bombardment, as it seems, with media statements that are far from excessive slogans, and their position is a refusal that does not accept negotiation or study to change the rules of the game and that the equation (missile versus balloon) has no place in what will be the case, and that the blockade has It was prolonged and could not bear it any longer, and it announced its readiness to enter a broad military confrontation with the occupation. Here the mediators moved, and an Egyptian security delegation came to exchange messages between the resistance and the occupation, and the Qatari ambassador (Muhammad Al-Emadi) came and reached hearts and throats, until Al-Emadi announced that an agreement had been reached to stop the escalation, in which Qatar participated – in addition to Al-Emadi – Deputy Prime Minister Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al second.
The Qataris, Palestinians, occupation leaders and Zionist settlers realize that the agreement only defused the crisis, and resulted in a postponement of the explosion of the situation, waiting for a new round, we do not know how it will end, after two weeks of escalation and heating. And the leaders of the occupation had their accounts in light of the Corona crisis, the internal partisan political crisis with them, the approaching date of the American elections, the tension with Hezbollah in the north, and their desire not to disturb the atmosphere of normalization with the Emirates and others now … But Gaza remained a thorn in the throat of the Zionist project, and an intractable puzzle. ; Its weakness is its strength, and it is neither a major nor a superpower (a narrow coastal strip of 365 km2).
Gaza gives what is lost
There are many poems that flirt with Gaza and its heroism and resistance, and more than articles, publications and videos, they deserve this compliment and spin and more … and more! I am not here in the exhibition of flirtation, the agent of praise for Gaza, its resistance and its people, and I also do not have the queens of those who did and do well and well demonstrate.
Rather, I will go for a relatively different doctrine and say:Gaza is not an ideal situation. It has some problems that burden statistical data, it lacks good management and good governance, and it expels by virtue of its reality many young people who aspire to live like the rest of their counterparts in the world, and perhaps even in the neighborhood, and in Gaza, crimes and heinous crimes sometimes occur, just like any other region. Other, and its people want to enjoy education and health services appropriate to their needs and numbers, and they feel that they are in a large prison, which is the most densely populated region of the world and they want to work after graduation, and those who do not learn want to work in a sector that suits their abilities, and they want to sit and return to Houses that do not have electricity cut off … They want everything that people want, and they do not want their end – in general – to be scattered by the bombing of F-16 and Merkava tanks … But they simply do not want this to be in exchange for submissiveness and surrender to the occupation and forfeiting rights, especially the right of return … as a reminder. About eighty percent of the residents of the Strip are refugees.
Gaza, regardless of all its problems and shortcomings, is the spearhead in confronting the Zionist project, and works miracles to spite the occupation, and this is what distinguishes it from others. There is something that the Arab excelled in, and it was based on a disgusting nervousness, so Islam came and reformulated and shipped it towards the belief that it is pride and dignity … The Arab, no matter how globalized, loves pride and dignity, seeks it and sees it worthy of sacrifice, and it is present in Gaza in a time of betrayal, normalization and betrayal … and this Not emotional rhetoric. The Arab may hate Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, which is their Palestinian branch, and some Arabs may have a stance that is not friendly towards the Palestinian person for one reason or another, but the Arab (unless they are purified) loves what Gaza keeps for the Arabs, and it is the most important thing they took care of and their pain of losing or diminishing it. A certain time or place in a given circumstance … that is, dignity and pride, and not to submit to the dictates of the enemy, no matter how strong and powerful those who stand behind him and support him … This is the fate of Gaza in this circumstance and this age.
Before, during and after the latest wave of escalation, the resistance continues to launch experimental missiles towards the sea; These missiles are not powerful and effective (Scud or Cruise) and others, but they can strike Tel Aviv and others without being entrenched behind the phrase (the right to respond at the appropriate time and place). Rather, the Gaza resistance, even when there was an agreement to stop the fighting, was bombed in the last minutes to start a date. Implementation … Gaza is the one that always sets the compass in the direction of the unquestionable truth, so how at a time when another compass became pointing towards normalization and acceptance of worldliness in this world and religion ?!
Gaza has become the last fortress of Arab and even Islamic pride, and it is the only hope from which hopes may arise, despite poverty, unemployment, worn-out infrastructure, misery and a blocked horizon. The means that are renewed and changed according to circumstances … God was with Gaza’s aid, and may God protect it, as it crystallizes for the nation a model of dignity and pride.
