"Yaaaabaaaaa!!!"...Another Israeli Atrocity
Her screams are still ringing in my ears, more than 9 hours after I first saw the footage of the Palestinian girl crying for her father. They had been picnicking on the beach. What other activity could be more peaceful than parents taking their children on a picnic at the beach? Out of nowhere, the shells hit the children making sand castles and enjoying the day with their family. Within minutes, the joyous outing had turned into a fatal one, with blood covering the sand and the bodies spread out across the targeted area.
I cannot get her voice out of my head. Her screams pierced through my body and soul as she began to fathom the fate of her father lying lifelessly in front of her. "Yaaaabaaaa" means "Daaaaddyyyy". Her Daddy is no more. Her Mommy is no more. Her siblings are no more.
(this is my recording of the AlJazeera report on the incident)
Oh, and by the way, it was an "accident".
