The Incredible Tragedy That is Gaza - by Justin Amler

In the 13 years since Israel left, the focus of the Arabs in Gaza has never been about the future or about building a better life. It’s never been about helping their people. It’s been all about destroying Israel.

The United Nations, that incredibly morally defunct, hypocritical organisation, that thinks it has some kind of higher moral authority to dictate to others, said that a new war in Gaza would be an ‘incredible tragedy.’

“An incredible tragedy.”

Once again they have it wrong about what exactly a tragedy is. Because the tragedy is what has been brewing in Gaza for the last 13 years.

In 2005, Israel left Gaza, pulling out all soldiers and all civilians – uprooting peoples’ homes and uprooting their lives and uprooting their families. When Israel left, it left behind good working infrastructure to give the Arabs in Gaza a chance to make something of their lives. Israel gave them a chance to build a largely independent entity which would allow them to plot their own destiny. Israel gave them opportunities, including a successful greenhouse business with crops ready for export.

But instead of embracing the golden opportunity presented to them, an opportunity for self-determination never offered by any of their ‘Arab brothers,’ they chose not to take it. Instead of lifting themselves up with the greenhouses, they looted them. Instead of inhabiting the previous Jewish community settlements, they ransacked them. They carted off materials such as irrigation hoses, water pumps and plastic sheeting.

The money and the materials that were poured into this coastal strip, determined to help the Arab residents of the Palestinian Authority become a successful model of the so-called Arab dream of yet another Arab state, turned out to be a nightmare instead.

In those 13 years since Israel left, the focus of the Arabs in Gaza, under their thuggish terrorist dictatorship has never been about the future. It’s never been about building a better life. It’s never been about helping their people. It’s never about making the future one of hope and opportunity and aspirations.

It’s been the polar opposite.
