Well, my children are also well-fed, well-spoken little consumers and will certainly complain about a bomb had it hit their home. I will complain, too. You make it look like it's OK to have people's home hit with a bomb just because they're well-fed, well-dressed and well-spoken. I can't understand your argument in another way.
..TOYS! Sunglasses, necklaces, bracelets..
Maybe you think hers are the fancy stuff you'd find in a department store. They're definitely not. The last time I've been to Gaza Strip was when I was about 12 years but the misery is still engraved in my memory. It was Eid (Our big feast as Christmas) time and kids would get presents and sweets and new clothes. Parents would buy these things for their kids but the affordable, and therefore available, variety was of the worst ever. Cheap toys that cost a dollar to make hundreds of is the norm. The world dumps its worst products there and elsewhere where poverty and/or instability prevail.
That little girl is as smart, as educated, as safe, and as healthy as any American child I've ever met. Her little sweater is adorable. Children living in terrible living conditions do not have adorable sweaters, toys, sunglasses, bracelets, food, drawers for storage, necklaces or rings.
She may look smart and healthy and most likely goes to school but.. safe? A rocket had targeted her home and you call this safe? You mean she should die or get injured? She was lucky to escape that attack. Do you guarantee her safety next attack?
If they want pity, they need to show us the damaged children
OK. I'll post some pictures soon. But it's not pity we want. We want some sympathy. Compassion. Understanding. These people are victims of a brutal war machine that attacks and then cries if a stone is thrown on it.
..Is there not a nicer, newer suburb to move to?
Unfortunately, there isn't.
