Anonymous asked: Frankly, the rockets in Israel do cause damage. They cause long term effects. 75% of children in southern Israel suffer from some sort of post traumatic stress disorder. This includes not sleeping, nightmares, not eating, violence, and not speaking. So many forms of this. Just because a rocket has fire/bigger explosion, doesn't make one without less powerful
Well first thing should be first… I don’t wish the pain for children of Palestine and I don’t wish it for any kid in this universe, children are children they should be out of this!!
Now, I’m not going to talk about the numbers & I’ll not ask you to show me your source of these statistics!! But you wanted to talk about the long term effects, fine!! for children of Gaza, take all what you just said about disorders, not sleeping, nightmares, and violence, all of it and add the following: children of Gaza face death, oh yah some of them ended up on graves! If you don’t believe me, fine!! Go and check it yourself, see the dead or burned bodies of 10 months old kid or 3 years or 10 years…etc. Children of Gaza not only have to deal with nightmares, they face it alone, yah because they experience something else called loss!! and not just losing your house or your favorite stuff that’s actually become nothing beside losing a mother or a father or your brothers or sisters or friends!! they have to live with the loss of an arm or leg or maybe both, oh and some kids lost their ability to talk forever!! or how about losing eyes forever!! they have to live the rest of their lives with disabilities!! Children of Gaza have to become adults early because when their mom and dad got killed they left him/her with the burden of taking care of their baby brothers and sisters!! All of this is nothing compared to reality cause reality is much much more and much worse!! So for me, rockets still less powerful cause seeing a nightmare isn’t exactly as living it every single day!!
So if you care about children, and feel sorry for what they have to deal with & the future they are facing, put children of Gaza first, because they are facing the worst!!
