Night in Gaza

I don’t understand the Palestinians. I don’t understand their strength and resilience. I don’t understand how they withstand decades of brutal occupation and oppression.

What is even more incomprehensible is silence of the international community. Why do so many of us choose to not see and let evil prevail?

This book is an account of what Dr. Mads Gilbert witnessed at al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza in the summer of 2014 when, once again, Israel bombarded Gaza. The majority of the people injured and killed by Israel were children and women — unarmed civilians.

This book is important because it documents what happened when Israel attacked Gaza. Western main stream media would not tell this story, would not let you see the human cost of a war on unarmed civilians. May be they are afraid that if more people wake up to the brutal reality of Israel’s crime, our voice will become loud enough and strong enough to bring an end to the occupation and demand justice for the victims.


Reading the stories was difficult. Looking at the photos was heart breaking. I don’t have the words to succinctly describe the emotions I felt while reading this book. How is one supposed to feel when one sees so much pain and suffering inflicted on a people? It made me feel helpless. It left me wishing I could do more. Why do we let decades of injustice to continue?

If you would read only one book about Palestine, read “Night in Gaza“. It will make you question the misinformation propagated by the mainstream media.

Mr. Obama — do you have a heart? I invite you — spend one night — just one night — with us in Shifa. Disguised as a cleaner, may be. I am convinced, 100 percent, it would change history.” ~Dr. Mads Gilbert

You can get the book from Kinokuniya or Amazon.
