"I saw that the Ajrami family's house was bombed in the Jabaliya refugee camp, where I live, so I called my family, but no one was answering. "Finally my younger sister answered and was crying. I couldn't understand her."

This world is very sad these days - here included.

and i am crying for my uncle who was killed by the ones you said you respected.

Perhaps it's best to read the articles and comments more carefully before attributing a quote from a Palestinian business man to me.

"and i am crying for my uncle who was killed by the ones you said you respected."

If in fact that statement about your uncle is true why are you so reluctant to explain it the several times you have been asked about it?

And once again I will say read the articles before attributing a quote from someone else to me. I did not say I respected Hamas. Perhaps your reading comprehension is so poor you can not tell the difference, but I can.

because i think that there is no more to say. you said that i a comment you made. not from the article. i don;t need to explain anything to a person who has learned to respect the one who killed him.

Then stop bringing it up and please do learn how to read and comprehend what you read.

“I was never a Hamas supporter, but today I say that I highly respect the resistance movements as they managed to resist until the last second. And we tell the Israelis that they will never succeed to break our will. We will teach the love of our country for our children who will continue the struggle to liberate Palestine. We will rebuild what was destroyed; we will defy our fears and fight for a better future,” said Asaad Mahmoud, a businessman of 40 in Gaza city."

THAT is a quote from another article I posted In Gaza, Palestinians Celebrate Resistance, And Credit It With Victory. That means I did not say it ~ someone else did. Notice the quotation marks. Of course, had you read the article before commenting , you would have known that anyway.

Perhaps you should stop making up stories to make your life seem more tragic or interesting or whatever the reason. That way you won't have to try to explain when people ask you questions.

Noted with sadness and shame that the USA is supporting this bloodbath with money and weapons and who knows what else! NO one's mother, father, sibling, uncle, aunt, cousin, friend or neighbor should die in violence! NONE! Corporate arming of our World must be stopped! All of it. The US should stop funding armed insurrection everywhere, including Israel. The occupation/colonization/appropiation of Palestinian lands needs to stop, and all, i mean ALL actions which oppress the People must end! Am utterly sick of ANYONE treating any biblical writing as a Deed to land, resources and a right to kill the folks who've lived there for centuries, if not longer. I want all branches of the US government to acquire a spine by (almost) any means necessary. I want effing AIPAC defanged, delegitamized and even disbanded. I want all the bloodshed to stop, and i want the World in on peacemaking!
Suppose this comment falls under a "rant" category. If it disappears, i won't be surprized. The notions expressed here have been percolating since the first horriffic war on Gaza, and the continuing one in the West Bank. Enough!

Took me long enough to gather my thoughts so that there was more commentary to assimilate. Good work, Carrie. Am i correct in assuming that one of the above writers is your personal stalker? Blessings...

The loss of family, parents, children friends, relatives --- loss, and being thousands of miles away, not knowing, scared, and learning one's loved ones have been killed -- for nothing!!
what is there to say? nothing changes it, and no justifications and obfuscations alter the reality.

Death and murder of innocents in Gaza, and hundreds of children and others maimed, by the Israeli regime is heinous and disgusting - a revolting massacre.

This young woman and so many have been scarred, violated - Shame on Israel! Shame!
Netanyahu and his bloodthirsty war mongers and land grabbers are psychotic, manipulative maniacs. Israel and the rest of the world would be better off, without their cowardice, grandiose delusions and sanctimonious mendacity.

Americans, wake up. Israel is using your taxes to invade and occupy Palestinian lands for profit and exploiting the U.S.
DEMAND AN END TO ALL us aid to Israel, now! call the White House.
Refuse to be complicit in Israel's crimes against Palestinians and humanity.
And send a written letter, too. Obama, apparently, likes to read a few, every day..

One more sad and meaningless story from Gaza.

Palestinians voted for Hamas....they don't want peace....

..In 2005, Israel gave Gaza to the Palestinians. Israel gave up every inch of the land, uprooting thousands of settlers and relinquishing strategically vital territory. Rather than getting peace in return, Israel got terror: Hamas control of Gaza, Qassam rockets raining down on southern Israel, and the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit. The Gaza experience proves that "land for peace" doesn't work.



. I can't feel pity towards Palestinians who celebrated our losses on 911 and on the anniversary as well ...I cannot dishonor 3000 people who died on 911 when Palestine was celebrating their deaths. DISGUSTING

Jan, get a grip, with such comments, one could read the voices of Israel in the US or the JP

Palestine: Old Photos Expose Old Lying. Palestine was already a garden before the 'chosen people' arrived there.
It was difficult to find uncultivated country there at all.
The Palestinians had already built up their international markets, which were then taken over by the Israelis in 1948 with the nationalization.

For some reason there are those who keep making the same comments over and over again ~ as if saying it often enough will somehow make it all true and the world will once again turn a blind eye to Israeli atrocities.

Carrie, yes you do, you carefully put up anti-Israel and anti-Semitic stories yet when I ask you to comment on the suffering of Jews & Israelis because of Muslims you remain silent. Why is that? When you are shown how Hamas and the PA abuse the Gazans and produce lies as propaganda, you remain silent. Why is that? When you are shown how Palestinians suffer in Muslim controlled counties in the Middle East you remain silent. Why is that?

I have lost friends and family who died trying to ensure that Palestinians were not hurt or killed in a conflict. Their deaths should not have happened because Hamas should not be living and fighting within a civilian area but, yet again, you remain silent. Your silence speaks volumes of hatred.

It must be difficult for some of those making comments here to live a happy and contented life considering all the anger and animosity I see expressed in your comments. And toward people you don't even know.

GeM, if you want o pick on someone, maybe consider doing it face to face, not online, Enough with your abuse.
You have absolutely no right to come on this thread or any other to badger or malign Carrie, or anyone else.
That goes for anyone else. I do not come here to see viral abuse. You are not entitled to demand or expect any kind of response; if you receive one and cannot accept it, and continue to smear or attack people, personally, and do not wish to accept someone's comment, it would be better to leave it there, than continue. That is obvious. Refusing to do so to provoke or force a response, as far as I am concerned, is ridiculous, especially, when common civility and courtesy is absent.
Harassment and bullying, is not acceptable.

Thank you Jess, but please don't worry about me. I have been receiving these kinds of attacks for several years because I refuse to spread hatred and lies about Muslims. It doesn't really matter to me what angry and hate filled people say to and about me. I appreciate people like you Jess ~ and the many friends I have made on care2 who are just as disgusted as you and I are by the attacks made on others.
