MK (Ra’am-Ta’al) Dr. Ahmed Tibi on Wednesday 10 Menachem Av sent a letter to US President Barak Obama. The letter contains the names of 1,840 Gazans that he reports were killed in IDF strikes in Gaza.
Tibi adds “All the Palestinian children killed in Gaza had hopes and dreams, just like your daughters Malia and Sasha. I ask you; aren’t the children of Gaza entitled to freedom and a life? Are they entitled to your empathy Mr. Obama? I am writing to express my disappointment regarding the White House’s and your handling to the Israeli offensive in Gaza”.
According to Tibi, 80% of the dead were civilians. The IDF spokesman places that figure at about one half.
Tibi stresses how the IDF targeted schools, hospitals, apartment buildings, mosques, ambulances, UN buildings and the Gaza electric plant.
Tibi concludes by pointing out the Gaza children were killed by bombs manufactured by the US and that this should weigh heavy on the US president’s conscience.
