"Neighbors gathered on the roof of a family’s home in Gaza, hoping Israeli pilots would refrain from bombing the house once they saw the number of people on the roof. Israeli pilots bombed the house just now, committing a massacre. In Gaza solidarity means offering your own body to protect your neighbor’s house because your body is your last and your only line of defense. These are the people of Palestine." - Mahmoud Mroueh
