Where's the help coming from?
ALI, A PALESTINIAN communication officer from Gaza sent me some new pictures of his homeland yesterday. I'm not sure where he got them but the pictures show some of the hardships face by the locals. Floods in Gaza had added to the problems the embattled people of Gaza is going through. The pledges of billions of dollars made by donor nations to help rebuild Gaza have yet to find their way into the occupied territory. Even if the money find their way into Gaza, where would they find the equipment and material to rebuild the damaged homes, mosques, government offices and schools. When I was in Gaza, Ali was one of my interpreters and was helpful in taking us around. See the pictures and make your own conclusion.
