Fifth child dies from exposure to freezing temperatures in war-torn Gaza


Another tragic death of a child from the results of last summer’s “conflict”. This in the face of the US congress threats to cut off any further aid to these suffering people in retaliation for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas signing the treaty to join the ICC (International Criminal Court).  

Just a personal observation: When, and I do mean when not if, severe judgment is poured out on the United States of America, we will deserve it: and none will deserve it more so then the so-called Christians who have sat by and allowed this, and much more, by their silence or warped theology, to continue.

The 5th child to die of the cold – one died on 9 Jan, two on 10 Jan, and one on 13 Jan. The oldest was 1 1/2 years old. Father finds five-month-old son frozen to death in Gaza GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip 20 Jan —

A grieving father has recounted to NBC News how his five-month-old son froze to death after the family’s Gaza home was bombed by Israel. Sami Abu Khesi is among the Palestinians who have yet to rebuild in the wake of last summer’s conflict which left more than 2,100 people dead. His son, Wadie, was born in Gaza’s Nasser Hospital as fighting raged between Hamas militants and Israeli forces on August 15. After the cease-fire, Wadie was brought home. But amid the worst winter weather in years, Wadie was found dead on January 15. “His mother was nudging but there was no life,” Khesi said in what remains of his home in Gaza City’s Shijaiyah neighborhood, some walls nothing more than scrap metal and nylon sheets. “So I looked at the boy and he was frozen. She woke me up and I found that he was frozen.” The Gaza Ministry of Health has not issued an official cause of death, but the family believes it was hypothermia. Relatives say he had previously been in good health. The ministry has confirmed four children have died as a result of hypothermia this winter … “We have never seen a winter like this,” said Khesi, whose two other daughters, Jannat and Suna, remain bundled up in heavy clothes even when inside. “It has been cold in the past, but at least we could put them in homes to protect them. Now, there is nothing to put them in. All we have is nylon.”

The Lord looked and was displeased that there was no justice. He saw that there was no one, He was appalled that there was no one to intervene. (Isaiah 59:15-16)

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
