American Thanksgiving: A Thanksgiving Message From Gaza!

Well, its American Thanksgiving in the United States.  (Canada had its Thanksgiving back at the beginning of October)  This is supposed to be a time for friends and family to gather together to celebrate the good lives they have with good food and good hospitality.

However, while Americans are celebrating Thanksgiving, the Palestinian people in the Israeli prison camp called Gaza are barely scraping by in their daily lives.   Recently  I put up several articles that show how the Israelis, besides murdering the Palestinians in Gaza indiscriminately, are also conducting a policy of slow starvation for these people.   It is disgusting to see how the world continues to turn a blind eye to the plight of the 1.5 million people locked up in Gaza!

To further understand the real plight of Gaza, I want to turn to a great article that was put up by a fellow truth seeker, Desert Peace, at, entitled: "A Thanksgiving Message From Gaza".   Here is that article in its entirety:


As you Americans sit down with your family on this Thanksgiving Day, think of the Gazans that have nothing to thank you for. Think of the over 1500 citizens of Gaza that were murdered with weapons made in your country. Think of the additional 3 BILLION dollars that will be spent on warplanes bound to Israel soon to continue the process of genocide.

As you look at the glowing faces of your beautiful children think of the over 5 hundred children in Gaza whose lives were snuffed out because you didn’t care enough to tell your government to STOP SUPPORTING GENOCIDE.

As you enjoy your good health think of the people of Gaza who are denied the basic humanitarian needs including medical supplies, thanks to a siege and blockade that your government has supported from day 1.

The following video will help you think about those things mentioned above….. pass your laptop around the dinner table today and share it with your guests…. it’s a must see for all Americans.


NTS Notes:   So while my American readers sit down for a meal to celebrate their good fortunes, many quickly forget about the suffering endured by these proud  people at the hands of Zionist Israeli criminality and cruelty.

Yes, Americans have plenty to be thankful for.   At least they are not suffering like the 1.5 million people of Gaza do every day!  

More to come
