With deep pain and bitterness she asked, while her tears were falling on her cheeks like rain. She was carrying the remains of a school bag and some books in her hands. She asked: “Will the israeli killers of my little child, a piece from my heart and my liver find their way to justice, or they will survive their crime unpunished, as usual? I hope that they will be tried, or does the justice, which the international community is talking about so effusively, ONLY apply in Libya and Sudan but when the Israeli occupation murders, it is outside of the reach of their justice?

These are the very simple and clear words of the mother of Ayyoub Useila, 12, who was murdered in Gaza by an Israeli-American missile on last Sunday 11 March 2012. His body was torn to small pieces that were difficult to collect because the explosion caused the pieces of his body to fly even over the trees. His cousin (another child) was injured seriously in the same criminal israeli attack.

The bloodthirsty Israeli criminals were not able to differentiate between a “resistance member carrying a rocket” and a little boy carrying a school bag on his way to school. Simply said, Israel is pursuing a policy of premeditated murder and assassination against Palestinians. All the Palestinians children, women, elderly, and also the resistance, are targets of Israel.

During the past years the mother of little Ayyoub had already lost two of her children during different criminal israeli airstrikes. Each year she lost a child.


This is a disaster, a catastrophe, said Ayyoub’s the mother. “That morning, as usual, Ayyoub packed his bag and went to school carrying a piece of bread filled with potato in his hand. A few minutes after he went. I heard the “Zannaneh”, an Israeli Apache, firing a missile on the road which the students use when going to school. I ran to the street in search of my little son who just went out. He had been killed; he was the target of the Israeli missile. His bag flew dozens of meters and small pieces of his body were spread all around the place. The rests of his body were stuck in small pieces on the branches of trees and a piece of bread and the potato were scattered on the ground. He was murdered before he could eat his breakfast”.

The story of the mother of little Ayyoub in the Gaza Strip is the story of all mothers in Gaza, of all mothers whose children go to school in the morning but who have no guarantee that their children will return home in safety, walking on their own legs and in one piece. Some children in Gaza get murdered by missiles and others are injured with shrapnel and return to hospitals instead of home or going to school. Many others suffer pain, trauma and fears which last a life.

The mother of little Ayyoub received the body of her child in small pieces which were collected in a plastic bag. This was the third time that Ayyoub’s mother received the bodies of her children in pieces. During the funeral of her child, she insisted in putting to rest with him the piece of bread with potato and his books.

While israel continues its criminal career unhindered, many other mothers must fear that their children will not return home safe. And israel’s criminal career will continue until that time when it is given a sobering beat-down when it picks the wrong fight. That is the global experience with bullies, from schoolyards to neighborhoods to the middle east with israel: appeasement only encourages bullies, who are seldom smart enough to understand when they are spoken to in polite words. They only stop their antisocial and criminal behavior when they are given a memorable smack-down.

Israel is not looking for Peace



Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
