469 Gaza children killed, over 370,000 need ‘psychosocial aid’ – UNICEF

Epigraph:

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. (Matthew 18:1-5)

  1. Matthew 18-6 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

  2. Really, Luca, who has caused innocent children to sin? Those raining 160,000 tonnes of bomb on their homes,hospitals, playgrounds, beaches and mosques for the crimes of a small tribal faction within Hamas?

  3. May Allah bring peace and justice in Palestine.Israeel is doing unprportional response against Palestinians.This looks a great cruelty on the part of Israel.

  4. Put the blame for this where it belongs. Hamas is responsible for having ignited this by sending rockets to Israel. They instigated the response and kept the children near the rocket launchers.
    Hamas has their trauma on its head.,

    • It is to be recalled that it was Israel who helped in creating Hamas (in order to split the Palestinian vote, which was before Hamas 100% behind Yasser Arafat). Another reason was that they can use them all the time as an excuse not to make peace. Both aim wonderfully achieved. Congratulations.
