Surviving in Gaza

The Israeli journalist has left Gaza just today, she was told by Hmas police that her life is in danger. She has written a remarkable piece about the life here in this animal pen. Writing about Gaza remarkably is not unusual for Amira, who spent years here during the early nineties; but what about us who are surviving the Gazan miseries. We are getting away from realities to repeat slogans, to speak about the effects of unprecedented siege, to argue about the effects of internal schism and to blame Hamas or to defend it, to articulate partial facts, to exaggerate realities or to generate fabricated lies, to do everything but not telling our real story.

Who can tell the real story of Gaza?
I am only trying to survive the life of Gaza!
