This time in Gaza was different when observing people’s louder voice of expressing the deterioration of their lives. From one side you cannot but see the heartfelt scenes of poverty , of humanity being taken to its edge , and from another side you see buildings,hotels, pochi restaurants and cafes, new cars, youth dressed with Nike and Adidas.
One of the most compelling comments I heard was from a taxi driver who expressed his concern and others rage on the building of another mosque . We don’t need more mosques . I keep stressing on all the time as a Moslem who sees expensive built mosques where no cultural centers or services provided in paces where people lack the basics. As a secular person-maybe- I thought I am just another bad moslem when I complain .but hearing this is Gaza for me was beyond my expectations.
It came with no surprise that people are taking the streets in distress asking for better life.
