While Israel is physically outside Gaza, it still completely controls our lives, all aspects of our lives: health, education, economy and freedom of movement. Life under occupation is degrading to human dignity. It has deprived us of our freedom, and only free people can make peace. It is most peculiar that we are forced to deal with the patterns of life under occupation as normal, well-established facts.I am copying and pasting this from the blog of a Palestinian doctor in Gaza. We have left Gaza completely two years ago and since the Oslo agreements a generation ago, we have been trying to disentangle ourselves from their lives and put the largest distance possible from their physical personas. But they are still obsessed with us. We control... How on Earth we control their health? their education? their economy? Their freedom of movement? Children under 15 in Gaza have never met nor seen an Israeli. Still she says she is living under occupation? Are we phantoms in her sick mind that she feels controlled, occupied, unable to take free decisions?
I would understand that feeling of being unable to escape the fascination of the Israelis if instead the old hag she is, it had been a Palestinian boy. The pic shows one of our fashion models. Conquering. Occupying. Controlling. Enslaving. Impossible to escape the power rays emitted by certain parts of her body.
