Please watch the film and make up your own mind about what is happening in Gaza. We know that Hamas is shooting missiles at Israel using people as shields but everything in life needs a balance. When you take the innocent human toll on the two countries you have to see that innocent people in Gaza are being killed by Israel everyday and in so much greater numbers. If someone slaps you in the face for no good reason and you are packing a gun, would you shoot them? Even though shooting them could cause you to hit the children playing where you both are.
No one in my life can be compared to my mom. My love for her has no limits. Yet she and I had awful arguments at one time when she took to silence over my brother Juan Orlando, He making a young sassy underage girl that was living with us pregnant. She would say that I most not criticize someone in the family and not go against the family. I would try to make her understand that not everything can be excused due to family and friendship. There are certain things that are so unequal and thereby so wrong that you can not keep quiet or you become guilty yourself. Because as we learn with the AIDS crisis, silence=death.
Pleasure needs to be mounted on both sides.

This is no time to yell at each other but make the case with common sense and intelligence. A lower tone voice with smart lips over what you believe, which ever of the two issues you believe:
1. Should one nation do anything on the name of self defense?
2. Should the world put pressure on Hamas to stop using people as shields and stop supplying them with the weapons to attack not to defend themselves? Giving them the miles of cement to make tunnels and infiltrate Israel is not self defense for them. Supplying them with rockets is neither. The spot light has to be place at the complicit in this war. People talk about the US supplying Israel with weapons. which is true but this is being going way before this crisis. Before we crucify the US lets look at what other nations like Iran, Russia through Syria and even North Korea are doing. Hamas are like the people that killed all of those in 9/11. They believe they accomplish their goal by killing the innocent and then throwing blame at the other side.On the other hand the leader of Israel, elected by his people is not doing his country no favors. What Israel is doing will be remembered just like people remember the Holocaust. ‘ hey that should know better have fallen in the trap and have become murderers themselves'. What ever reason you give when you keep killing innocent people day by day, knowing what your actions are causing, then you have lost your moral high ground and you have joined those you fight down in the gutter.
There are humanitarian crimes being committed by both sides,the children are being both killed by Israel and Hamas. If Israel stops the killling is neither going to get invaded nor you going to have hundreds and thousands killed there.
This two minute film, produced in Dutch, has highlighted the lives of eight Palestinian children killed during the latest conflict in Gaza.
Entitled, ‘We are no longer here, do you care?’ the images are striking: young children playing on the beach, an infant being put down for the night, and a young teenage girl playing on the computer. It’s only later in the video you realize that these were their final moments; these are the places where they died.
The children the Dutch actors portray are real-life stories from the victims of this tragedy:
Aahed Baker, 10 years old, with his family members, Ismail Baker, 9, Zakareyya Baker, 10 and Mohammed Baker, 11, died while running from attacks on a local beach.
Ranim Abdul-Ghafoor, a 1-year-old infant, died in her sleep when her house was shelled.
Anas Qandeel was a 17-year-old girl whose last message on Facebook read, “I can’t sleep, when are you going to attack my home?” She died an hour later, when the IDF did just that.
Nour Al-Najdi, a 10-year-old girl, died when her house collapsed after the building next door was shelled.
Sahir About Namous, a 5-year-old, discusses his love for the park; Sahir and his mother were playing at the park when they were hit by a missile and killed.
