Have we all missed something?
The territory went dark on Sunday when the only power plant was shut down.
"As far as I'm concerned, all the residents of Gaza can walk and have no fuel for their cars, because they have a murderous terrorist regime that doesn't allow people in the south of Israel to live in peace," he [Ehud Olmert] said.
BEFORE I START CAN YOU PLEASE READ TO THE END AS IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.
Brothers, sisters, Muslims, not Muslims & All Humans.
Gaza Strip (Palestine) is on the brink of one of the greatest humanitarian catastrophes of our time. Since the beginning of 2006, the European Union, America and most of the world have been part of those who have uimposed sanctions on Gaza.
Today...Now (20/01/2008 17.46 GMT) There is less than one hour until all power to Gaza gets cut off. Since this morning, Israel has not allowed fuel to enter Gaza. This may seem trivial, but below are just some of the things which the innocent citizens of Gaza Strip will have to live with (those who are lucky enough to stay alive through this strangulation):
* No fuel for cars
* No fuel for generators
* Hospitals will have no more electricity. This means that anyone who is attatched to a machine will no longer be able to use it. THIS MEANS THEY WILL DIE!
* 400 Kidney patients will no longer be able to use dialysis which means that they will also die
* Children who are born will have no heating ( the temperature in Gaza now is -3 degrees Centigrade)
* Everyone in gaza will have no heating
* There will be no way to sterilise hospital equipment, so disease will spread.
The list can go on for ever, just think now, if we had no electricity, no petrol, no diesel, and electricity generators which are made to work for a couple of hours before they overheat, what would happen to us.
All of the above is inaddition to there being no food entering gaza, and hardly any local produce, since the Israelis have been known to bulldose most farmland in Gaza.
Also, since imports into Gaza is prohibited, there is no cement, not to build houses, BUT TO MAKE THE GRAVES FOR THOSE WHO DIE. So they die in despair, and dont have a proper grave. This again will; lead to the spread of disease in Gaza.
This is a very quick picture of what Gaza is going through as we type this letter.
So what to do? TELL EVERYONE YOU CAN. FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LISTS. TV stations in gaza will have to close because of the power cut, so only God knows what the Israelis will do to Gaza tonight.
I urge everyone to contact your local MP, and anyone in authority to put what little pressure we can on them to try to make a change.
There is a petition which is being authorised by the prime ministers office, which should be in circulation soon.
We ask God to help our brothers and sisters in Islam, Christianity and Humanity to end this catastrophe.
