Most Helpful Guy
I'm a Palestinian from the West Bank, and unfortunately I wasn't able to go to Gaza nor I have ever met any person from Gaza during the 19 years that I lived in Palestine, even though the distance between Gaza and the West Bank is ridiculously short. Thank to the occupation, the two parts generally aren't allowed to visit each other.
The first time I met a few people from Gaza was in Germany when I moved here 5 months ago. Those people eventually became close friends and it was actually a big joy that I finally met those people with a bit of sadness that I was only able to meet them in a foreign country and not in our homeland. Well, obviously I was always curious about how my brothers and sisters on the other side used to live and how it felt for them to live under attack. So of course I had to ask my friends, and the stories and experiences that I heard from them really left a big mark inside my heart. ironically, I used to believe that we have it worse in the West Bank because of the settlements and the check points, it turned out that I used to live in heaven comparing to them, they really had it the worst, no food, no clean water, no electricity at the most part, Etc etc. Those people fight to live and they live with dignity and honor and die with their dignity and honor, surprisingly, they are mentally strong and fear literally nothing, there mentally and will is stronger than any rocket that was thrown on them, and after all the hard things they faced, you still see that honest smile on their faces.
You might find this weird, but after meeting my friends from Gaza and knowing how they used to live, I feel that it's not fair that I as a Palestinian didn't experience the same things they experienced in Gaza, it makes wish to go back to Palestine and live in Gaza so I can die there just like those thousands of those innocent honorable people of Gaza.4
