Dear mothers of Gaza, you are the light upon this dark world

'Since October, Israeli occupiers have killed many thousands of your flesh and blood. To say that I feel sorry for your loss would be demeaning the pain you have felt and will stay with you for the rest of your life.'

'My Dear Mothers of Gaza, to say that I feel sorry for your loss would be demeaning the pain'

My Dear Mothers of Gaza,

I sit three thousand miles away from you and yet your wails, your laments, your cries pierce my soul like an arrow. I feel helpless as I see your loved ones being dug out of the sprawling rubble — bones, bereft dolls, torn masonry — and brought back in black polybags and white shrouds.

Since October, Israeli occupiers have killed many thousands of your flesh and blood. To say that I feel sorry for your loss would be demeaning the pain you have felt and will stay with you for the rest of your life.

The cruelty of Israel’s death and destruction is a blot on the face of human civilization. They can kill all of humanity in Gaza but they can’t kill you — the indomitable mothers of Gaza.
