Photographers Capture the Truth: Israel’s Environment is Being Attacked While the World Stays Silent
In the past three months, since the beginning of the Nakba protests, Gazans led by Hamas attacked Israel in many different ways.
Lately, Gazans have used a new strategy to terrorize Israeli civilians in southern Israel. On a daily basis incendiary kites are sent over the border from Gaza towards Israel burning of thousands of acres of land. Local wildlife - birds, turtles, deer, and other animals are either killed or chased out of their native habitats. Plants, trees, forests, gardens, and crops – are also ravaged from the widespread destruction caused by the incendiary devices.
The international community didn’t condemn Hamas for this new environmental warfare which endangers civilians, wildlife, and ravages Israel's southern region.
A group of Israeli photographers led by Edi Israel decided that this destruction should been seen by the whole world. Hundreds of photographers today are documenting the devastation caused by flaming devices lofted into Israel by balloons and kites. The pictures taken should be seen by everyone so that the world knows the reality of Israeli civilians living close to the border with Gaza.
It will take years, for the destruction orchestrated by Hamas to be reversed. Environmental warfare is condemnable everywhere in the world but for some reason many do not believe it is a crime when it comes to Israel. What country in the world would stand idly by for this type of attack? The answer is none.
Yet for some reason, Israel must fight for its existence on a day-to-day basis. It’s an open secret that Israel is not given the same treatment diplomatically, politically, or in the international media on the as other countries. Otherwise, the international community would widely condemn Hamas for this destruction.
Today we are calling on you to share these pictures so that the world sees the truth and acknowledges that while Israelis try to build a better future for their children, country, and world, Hamas only destroys. Hamas destroys their own people, they destroy their environment, and they attempt to destroy Israel.
