The Only Human Being in Gaza

On January 17th, I told the tragic story of Dr. Izz el-Deen Aboul Aish. This man has obligated the Israeli media to confront the humanitarian situation in Gaza. Here’s the latest (and most probably last) update on his situation (limited by my translation):

You’re probably wondering, what justice Dr. Aboul Aish is referring to? It seems this is what the Palestinians have been reduced to: The good doctor is just happy that he got to tell his story and that as a result, an investigation was made. He feels now that he’s been treated like a human being. That is how little Gazan’s have come to expect of their lives.

Dr. Aboul Aish’s story is the only Gazan story, from the onslaught, to come through the Israeli mainstream media. How many more of these stories exist? As far as Israel is concerned, Izz el-Deen Aboul Aish is indeed a "rare man"; The only human being in Gaza.
