Israel - Gaza conflict

Israel - Gaza conflict | Conflicts and racism |
Israeli airstrikes began November 14, following months of Palestinian rocket fire into Israel.


"Monday, the top leader of Hamas dared Israel to launch a ground invasion of Gaza and dismissed diplomatic efforts to broker a cease-fire in the six-day-old conflict, as the Israeli military conducted a new wave of deadly airstrikes which included a second hit on a 15-story building that houses media outlets."  This photo essay shows 34 powerful images that are emerging from this deadly conflict.  If students need some background to understand who are the major players in this conflict, this glossary should be helpful.

Hossan Epiques Novelle's insight:

The two countries should take the chance to resolve the conflict amicably before the situation tips over and war is inevitable. The loss of lives resulting from the war would be pointless.

I was so shocked while reading this ariticle and seeing those pictures. The conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis is something that is deeply rooted in the history of the two nations. And the war, resulted by this conflict, has taken away many people's lives. The 2 countries's people are suffering. Many kids are just at our ages, they could not get education or anything else that we take for granted here, even had to bear the pain of losing relatives and homes. I could never imagine how sad and disastrous wars can be. :(

In my perspective, why does people will have a thought of eliminating prejudice is that prejudice can lead to unfair treatment or the violation of rights of individuals or groups of people just like the conflict between Israel and Gaza.

Israel-Palestine Conflict: Grief of a mother

CNN's Becky Anderson sits down with the mother of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, the Palestinian boy who was brutally murdered.
Hossan Epiques Novelle's insight:

It is sad to see such an atrocious crime being committed by a human being on another human. Aren't men all equal? Why are we categorising ourselves by race, nationality, beliefs, etc? 

Zhidoh Fok's curator insight, July 13, 2014 5:54 AM

This is an extremely disheartening and mournful news . It is downright atrocious and unfair towards the innocent child , and to all the other victims , families and friends that have to suffer despite not being in fault . When there is conflict , innocent civilians will suffer . Peace is the only remedy .

Hossan Epiques Novelle's insight:

Killing innocent civilians should be condemned, no matter what the reason. Wars sparked by racial prejudice are pointless. What can the involved parties gain from it?
