    Trapped between Israel and Hamas, Gaza’s wasted generation is going nowhere

    By William Booth, Hazem Balousha

    They are the Hamas generation, raised under the firm hand of an Islamist militant movement. They are the survivors of three wars with Israel and a siege who find themselves as young adults going absolutely nowhere.
    In many circles in Gaza, it is hard to find anyone in their 20s with real employment, with a monthly salary.
    They call themselves a wasted generation.
    Ten years after Hamas seized control of Gaza, the economy in the seaside strip of 2 million has been strangled by incompetence, war and blockade.
    Gaza today lives off its wits and the recycled scraps donated by foreign governments. Seven in 10 people rely on humanitarian aid.
    Young people say they are bored out of their minds.
    They worry that too many of their friends are gobbling drugs, not drugs to experience ecstasy but pills used to tranquilize animals, smuggled across Sinai. They dose on Tramadol and smoke hashish. They numb.
    Hamas has recently stepped up executions of drug traffickers.
    Freedoms to express oneself are circumscribed. But the young people speak, a little bit. They say their leaders have failed them — and that the Israelis and Egyptians are crushing them.
    Why not revolt? They laugh. It is very hard to vote the current government out — there are no elections.
    “To be honest with you, we do nothing,” said Bilal Abusalah, 24, who trained to be a nurse but sometimes sells women’s clothing.
    He has cool jeans, a Facebook page, a mobile phone and no money.
    He and his friends get by with odd jobs, a few hours here and there. They worked at cafes during the busy evenings of Ramadan in June. They will help an uncle in his shoe shop as the school year approaches in August. They make $10 a day at these kinds of jobs, a few coins for coffee and cigarettes.
    “We are the generation that waits,” Abusalah said.
    Reporters asked a 25-year-old college graduate, who got his degree in public relations, what he did for a living.
    He answered, “I stare into space.”
    Raw sewage washes onto the beaches. The water looks blue at the horizon, where Israeli gunboats lurk, enforcing a six-mile blockade. But the surf line is a foamy brown.
    The rappers of Gaza see this as a metaphor. They are literally trapped in their own excrement.
    Most young people in Gaza have not been out, either through Israel, which is almost impossible, or through the Rafah crossing into Egypt, which has been mostly closed for the past four years. (Continued)

    Hamas are bloodthirsty Sunni extremists.
    In Gaza, they shoot Shi'a Muslims on the spot.
    Decent Irish people should not be supporting them.....

    B'Tselem בצלם

    Under the blazing summer sun: Israel confiscated water tank that was a main water source of Palestinian communities that Israel refuses to hook up to water grid.
    This afternoon Israel’s Civil Administrating confiscated a tanker which supplies water to the communities of Msafar Yatta (Greater Yatta; Firing Zone 918) in the southern Hebron Hills, citing “entering a firing zone”. The truck, owned by a resident of Yatta, was carrying 20,000 liters of water and is the only one of its size serving the communities in the area. The truck managed to supply water only to the community of Khirbet al-Fakhit, one of twelve communities in the area which Israel has been endeavoring to displace and also refuses to hook up to the water grid. Soldiers then confiscated the truck. Israeli security forces kept the B’Tselem field researcher who was on site from filming the confiscation.

    1959 Jordanian guidebook calls Israel "occupied area of Palestine" while the West Bank was just Jordan.

    The Israeli army confiscated 70 dunams (17.3 acres) of Palestinian lands in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem on Tuesday, allegedly to build a military training site.

    The move reportedly affected the villages of al-Jabaa and Surif. Al-Jabaa village council head Thiyab Meshaala told Ma’an that the Israeli army escorted bulldozers to al-Khur, an area in western al-Jabaa, and razed some 10 dunams of lands belonging to the Abu Latifa, Hamdan, Abu Luha, and al-Tus families.

    When residents of al-Jabaa went to the site in protest, Meshaala said, Israeli soldiers told them that “the army declared this area a closed military zone to be used for military trainings,” adding that Palestinians were forbidden from entering or approaching the area.

    Meshaala said that Israeli forces had also razed lands in western al-Jabaa near an existing Israeli military checkpoint a week earlier.

    The IDF terrorists are well used to stealing land and their inhumanity is well known throughout the world.

    Only in "Palestine" can you build houses like this, and still convince people that you live in a ghetto.

    Just like in Israel, there are people who are wealthy and those who have nothing.
