Israel's stranglehold on the territory and the resources increases every single day. Gaza is effectively the world’s largest prison, A Middle Eastern Bantustan controlled by a new Apartheid State, Israel.
Till July 2015, the number of homes destroyed had reached more than 12,000 with 100,000 damaged. Tens of thousands of people were left homeless and more than 500 children were among the 2,100 Palestinians, the majority of them civilians killed.
The Western media presents the Israeli narrative. There only a few dissenting voices in the international media.

Speaking of media, even reporters and journalists do not escape the wrath of the Israeli forces:
Haunting images of bombed out civilian buildings; burnt bodies of babies too gruesome to post on this forum appear via twitter and FB every single day.
The Israeli Defense Forces fury is not only limited to the imprisoned Gazans but also to outside media representatives that attempt to cover the crisis:
On a different front an ever belligerent Israeli Government appears unmoved and vast swaths of the population appear to endorse their stance.
On a recent Facebook post Israeli lawmaker, Ayelet Shaked, issued a call for a total genocide of the Palestinians. The post declares “the entire Palestinian people is the enemy” and justifies its destruction, “including its elderly and its women, its cities and its villages, its property and its infrastructure.” It further calls for the eradication of Palestinian mothers who give birth to “little snakes.”
Her post was shared more than one thousand times and received almost five thousand “Likes.”

There are also disturbing images of people enjoying the bombing campaign from a hill side overlooking Gaza.

There is mounting evidence to suggest that Israel and IDF intend to take their marketing campaign to the social media by paying students to right pro-Israeli stories.
They continue to assert that the carnage in Gaza is a result of self-defense against Hamas rockets and incursions. For the large part Hamas rockets fall on empty fields and away from main centers of populations whereas Israel continues to bomb thickly populated city centers in Gaza with impunity.
They are also getting armed and ready for a ground offensive that will follow the devastating air strikes. We have seen this cycle get repeated every few years.
Meanwhile the largest prison in the world today presents an eerily similar picture to a Warsaw ghetto from World War II. Ironically the custodians of this barbaric prison seemed to have learnt little from the holocaust inflicted on their ancestors by Hitler decades ago.
The sorrowful cry of “never again” referring to the holocaust rings hollow today as the powerful occupying force of Israel carries out Apartheid practices similar to the Nazi persecutors of yesteryears. By all accounts the victim has transformed into the wolf.
