Writing an Op-ed in The Jerusalem Post in November of 2012, Gilad Sharon, the son of former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, said:
“We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima — the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too.
“There should be no electricity in Gaza, no gasoline or moving vehicles, nothing.”
The footage ‘This is my Home’ is from Jabaliya, Gaza taken on November 30, 2012 just after Israel’s Pillar of Cloud operation.
In the process of destroying entire Gazan neighborhoods and severely disrupting the lives and dreams of the residents, the IDF pride themselves on having dropped warning leaflets and using ‘non-lethal’ dummy bombs as precautionary measures.
Scenes like this one in Jabaliya can be seen all over Gaza.
When asked why he felt his neighborhood was targeted, a Jabilya resident and young university professor responded, “for pure propaganda just to terrorize the people here.
And terrifying us will only bring violence. As the saying, ‘violence by violence, peace by peace.’”
