VIDEO: Message from people of Israel to people of Gaza (Arabic with English subtitles)
We are not happy when we see your children cry
Message to the residents of Gaza from the people of Israel
Danielle/Dahlia of Jewlicious.com narrates
Here is the English:
Dear Residents of Gaza,
This is a message from the people of Israel.
We do not hate you.
We do not rejoice in your suffering.
We are not happy when we see your children cry.
We allowed shipments of medical supplies to enter Gaza and some of your wounded are being treated in Israeli hospitals.
These are not the actions of an enemy.
We are your neighbors.
All we want is a life of peace and prosperity for your children, and ours.
Please urge your government to stop their violent actions against us.
Show to the world that you are committed to peace and a better life.
There is no glory in death; only widows and orphans, blood and tears.
For peace is not a dream but can become a reality.
We know you yearn for a better future.
Yet, acts of violence against your closest neighbor is not the appropriate way for a better life.
May God bless you.
Please excuse my flawed Arabic.
