Atrocity Sanitized

“My parents live in the the city center, and the Israeli war planes attacked people and locations all around them. Over 50 “targets”by 60 warplanes, read the headlines in Haaretz. And over 220 killed- in broad daylight; in the after-school rush.
Like a movie tagline. Or a game. If you say it enough times, it does not sound real anymore: 50 targets, 60 warplanes, 200 people, 1 day.
All very sanitary. Very sleek. Neatly packaged: war in a gift-box.” –Laila El-Haddad
