“Here is the power plant that supplies the Gaza with 75% of it’s power. We can cut it off very easily….we do not because we are humanitarians.” -Aroma
Aroma lives on a Kibbutz that looks into Gaza. The power plant that supplies Gaza is fueled by Israel and could be shut off at any time. She explains that people do not understand how much Israel is doing to help Gaza — in spite of the bombs fired at them. Last year, a tunnel was discovered right in the center of her Kibbutz, built by Palestinians for the purpose of kidnapping Israelis. Current IDF policy is 1,000 Palestinian soldiers for every kidnapped Israeli. This policy is a reflection of the army’s value of their soldiers but also they are a motivation for Gaza kidnappings.
