1st August 2014 | International Solidarity Movement | Gaza, Occupied Palestine

This morning a group of over 70 people, mostly women and children carrying foreign passports, planned to take advantage of the ceasefire to leave Gaza and enter Egypt. Israel began bombing Rafah and the Egyptian personnel closed the Egyptian side of the border, leaving them trapped at the crossing, as the bombs fall around them. The Red Cross is not being allowed to reach them due to the bombing in the area.

Their nationalities include German, Norwegian, Bulgarian, and Egyptian.

Call the Egyptian Embassy in your country.

Call the German, Norwegian, Bulgarian foreign office and political representatives to demand that the Egyptian government opens the crossing and allows civilians to take refuge.

“The situation is very scary, the borders are closed and we are here, 70 people, mostly women and children trapped. I can see the smoke and fire, and I can hear the explosions very close to where we are,” said Nalan, one of the women trapped at the Rafah Crossing, talking to The Real News.

Listen to the audio recording of a phone call with Nalan Al Sarraj, correspondent for The Real News Network, trapped at the crossing here.

A call issued by civil society organizations and public figures including African National Congress (ANC) leaders Ahmed KathradaRonnie Kasrils, and former vice president of the European Parliament, Luisa Morgantini and Richard Falk states that “Despite a call from Egyptian citizens to lift the siege, the Egyptian government which controls one border and has the option to be part of a humanitarian response to the besieged people of Gaza, has instead supported the Israeli plan for return to the status quo of slow genocide.”

Israeli shelling killed at least 15 Palestinians sheltering in Jabaliya Girls Elementary School in Gaza’s biggest refugee camp on Wednesday, the Health Ministry said.

Some 3,300 Palestinians, including many women and children, were taking refuge in the building in Jabaliya refugee camp when it came under fire around dawn, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said.

There were blood splattered floors and mattresses inside classrooms and survivors picked through shattered glass and debris for flesh and body parts to bury.

"Children, women and men killed & injured as they slept in place where they should have been safe and protected. They were not. Intolerable." said UNRWA chief Pierre Krahenbuhl on Twitter, adding"This is 6th time one of our @UNRWA schools has been struck. Our staff leading int’l response are being killed. This is a breaking point."

One headline perfectly captures the U.S. media’s Israel problem

Cairo-based photojournalist Mosa’ab Elshamy caught this headline from the Monday edition of the Baltimore Sun that seems to capture Palestinian sympathizers’ frustration with mainstream media coverage of the ongoing conflict in Gaza. While Israeli combat fatalities are given up-front attention, Palestinian fatalities are brushed off as “others.”

Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems. But they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them.

why would he come back through the park?
you thought that you saw him but, no, you did not
it’s not him who’d come across the sea to surprise you
not him who would know where in London to find you
