A son in the Gaza mourns for his father

Fares Akram lost his father in the current Israel airstrikes in the Gaza and wrote a moving piece about the tragedy.

I am finding it hard to distinguish between what the Israelis call terrorists and the Israeli pilots and tank crews who are invading Gaza. What is the difference between the pilot who blew my father to pieces and the militant who fires a small rocket? I have no answers but, just as I am to become a father, I have lost my father.

(My Father Was No Militant, But Israel’s Bombs Reduced Him to a ‘Pile of Flesh’ is the title of the original article.)
