“These policies punish innocent civilians with the goal of exerting pressure on the Hamas government, violating the rights of 1.5 million people who seek only to live ordinary lives – to be reunited with family, to pursue higher education, to receive quality medical treatment, and to earn a living.”
This statement is from ZNet, talking about the perpetual policy toward the Gaza Strip of Zionist Israel.
Here’s one big problem – if you’re in the Gaza Strip, and you seek only to live an ordinary life, you’re seeking the wrong thing.
“An ordinary life” doesn’t match up too well against air strikes, checkpoints, and minimal natural resources. The only effective way to live is to incorporate the destruction of these air strikes, checkpoints, and problematic access to resources into one’s everyday process.
The Gaza Strip is nothing but ordinary, and it calls for merely exceptional lives.
If the statement is truly correct and all 1.5 million Gazan residents are seeking only to live ordinary lives, the Gaza Strip is doomed.
