A few days ago Israel bombarded the Mishal cultural centre in Gaza destroying it completely. Why? This centre has been the gift of Said Meshal to the youth of Gaza to help them cope with all the pressure of living under siege for the last twelve years. It is neither a Hamas nor a Fateh Centre. In fact there is an Egyptian cultural centre in the building. Ironic indeed when Egypthas been trying to mediate some sort of a long term truce “Hudna” between Israel and Hamas.
Is it not enough that those young people as well as all the people of Gaza are deprived of a normal life, that it was too much for Israel to see them enjoying some fun with music art, and drama. Once again, I cannot help but see the irony of it when at the same time Israel is asking that help to UNRWA in Gaza should not be curtailed because it will make life for the people of Gaza much worse.
Indeed it will, and so will the demolition of a cultural Centre that was supposed to lift up the spirit of the youth, and engage them with activities that are normal to all children of the world ?
