Shattered Lives and Endless Sorrow: Inside Gaza’s Deepening Tragedy

The Zionist regime’s narrative in Palestine and Gaza is not just recent history; it dates back 75 years to when an artificial nation was established that upset the regional stability due to foreign meddling, predominantly by Britain. This historical backdrop institutionalized a systematic injustice that continues to unfold. Recent events and media coverage reflect a crisis that Western organizations, including Amnesty International, acknowledge as part of an enduring apartheid system. While this system persisted over the years, it gained global attention only when the resistance group Hamas initiated operations in its homeland. On October 7, 2023, Hamas forces, emerging from the open-air prison of Gaza housing around

two and a half million people, launched “Aqsa Storm.” The Zionist regime’s surveillance and control over the Palestinian people, spanning the West Bank and Gaza, are immense. However, Hamas successfully executed this operation, surprising the ruling body of the Zionist regime and other nations. In response to this intelligence failure, the Netanyahu government, already under internal pressure for judicial reforms, embarked on a reckless bombing campaign targeting residential areas in the densely populated Gaza Strip. The desperation of the Zionist regime manifested in extreme measures such as

cutting off water, food, energy, electricity, and internet to Gaza, reminiscent of ethnic cleansing practices.

These actions, coupled with the silence of Western and international communities on blatant human rights violations, reveal a stark double standard. As the world witnesses

these events, the failure of legal and international mechanisms to protect the rights of Palestinians may drive them toward a doctrine of self-help. The Israeli regime further compounds its intelligence failure by propagating baseless narratives, such as falsely claiming “Hamas beheaded 40 Israeli children.” This misinformation is disseminated globally, even reaching the

highest levels of the American government. Meanwhile, the

regime conceals crimes, settlement constructions, and violations of international law through news censorship. In international law, the “right to resist” recognizes the legitimacy of opposing oppressive power. Put yourself in the shoes of a Palestinian enduring occupation, displacement, second-class citizenship, constant surveillance, and systematic insults to sanctity. In such circumstances, is it not legitimate to defend one’s dignity? The fundamental question arises: Why did Hamas initiate this operation, knowing the Israeli army would retaliate? The answer lies in the deplorable conditions,

unbearable oppression, and the international community’s silence. The only hope for the Palestinian people facing such adversity is armed resistance. To address

this issue, Western schools must acknowledge that stable peace requires justice. If Western governments seek peace in the region, justice must prevail. In the case of Palestine, justice entails a referendum for all residents to determine their government structure. Amidst the conflict, an estimated one million Gazans have been displaced, creating a catastrophic situation. As tanks and weapons are amassed on the Gaza border, it’s a moment of great sorrow, recognizing that even as you read this, a child might lose parents, or a parent might lose a child in Gaza. In the end, Mahmoud Darwish, a Palestinian poet in the best way, described the Palestinian people’s situation and how they endeavour to stand against oppression.

“Here on the slopes of the hill, facing the dusk and canon of the time, Close to the garden of broken shadows,

We do what prisoners do; We cultivate hope.
