"Let there be light" for Gaza

(Let there be light) is a phrase that comes from the third verse of the book of Genesis in the King James Bible: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness (From Wikipedia encyclopedia).

** Then Israel was established as the agent of darkness on this earth and as a main patron of evil!
We are the “Warriors of Light” who are fighting against the oppression and the darkness that Israel is trying to impose on Palestine and other areas of the world....

So let there be lightFor GazaIsrael with all of its might
Clamping down on the childrenOf Gaza
Let there be light
At the end of the tunnel
Support and hope
We have to funnel
For Gaza

Garrison of evil Israel is
Prison of Hope Gaza is
For humanity a major quiz
To dismantle the wall of hate
And let the light permeate
The homes and streets of besieged Gaza

Israeli soldiers opened fire on Palestinians on their way to Friday prayer seriously injuring Nablus resident Ahmad Mohammad Abu Hantash in the head. The incident happened at noon as worshipers were heading to Al Shuhada Mosque in the western part of Nablus.

He is currently undergoing surgery in Nablus Specialty Hospital located near the mosque in an effort to save his life. Several witnesses say that the shooting was unprovoked and expressed their anger and frustration for the Israeli Army complete disregard to human life and the sanctity of holy places. One of the worshipers who was walking with Mr. Abu Hantash said “I was walking with Ahmad to the mosque and suddenly I heard a gunshot and saw Ahmad fall beside me, I was horrified to see his blood splashing all over the ground, and did not know why the army shot at us, we ducked for cover and when the Israeli jeep left we rushed Ahmad to the nearby Specialty Hospital.”
Ahmad Abu Hantash is a 35-year old Palestinian worker, married with two children, Fadi, 4 years old, and Hadi, three months old.
