People of Gaza: When They’re Not Being Killed by Israel

Do an image search for ‘Gaza’ and hundreds of gory, bloody photos will pop up instantly. That’s the face of Gaza we see on the screen. I won’t post those pictures. But many don’t seem to realize that Gazans do have better things to do than be constantly hounded, pounded and terrorized by Israel (and yes …I said ‘terrorized’). These photos are the ones we don’t usually see. These are the people of Gaza.
