A Mother's Loss - Operation Cast Lead Mass-Murder

My time in Palestine is always enriching; but it is also heartbreaking. 'A Mothers Loss': latest video from Gaza.

(GAZA) - If this does not break your heart you could hardly be considered a sane human being. I will forever be deeply affected by my time with the Samouni family, anybody with a heart would be.

As reported earlier this month, this family lost 48 people at the hands of Israel's military; children shot in front of parents, parents shot in front of children.

Little Ahmed Samouni was shot twice in the chest by Israeli military forces; the type of people who gun down four-year old kids in the street. Made to live amongst the mutilated and dead for several days, ambulances were kept away from the area where Ahmed was delivered to his mother, mortally injured, dying slowly over hours and days.

If you knew the details of this story you would conclude as one mother did, those soldiers that committed these acts, could not be considered human. They're the same conscience-free military thugs who have destroyed life throughout history without remorse. They have been Romans, Nazi's, Khmer Rouge; now it is the IDF.

The faces, uniforms and flags change, but their ruthless behavior and the dismissive regard for the pain they cause others to suffer, continues.
