policy of divide, blockade
and conquer used against the Palestinian people strikes right to the
heart to family life. Families in Gaza can no
longer visit their relatives in the West Bank. Wives are torn from husbands and husbands from wives. Many
are forced to live apart some in the West Bank others in Gaza. All across
the Occupied Palestinian Territories there is a common shared
experience of humiliation. The
West Bank is constantly
shrinking under a deluge of illegal Israeli Settlements and new settlement construction. The countless
thousands of Gazans left homeless after the Israeli bombings can find a paler
shadows of the same existence among their friends
and family in East Jerusalem where
forced evictions and house demolitions are a daily occurrence.
The children of Gaza are the ones who suffer most.
