This weekend Nasr Abu Sa’ad will demonstrate with his five children outside the U.N. in Gaza, asking them to rebuild his home. It has been shelled into rubble in nine attacks; one killed his wife Naama. Now they live in a tent. Outside their former home, a white sheet flies from a stick, a call for mercy. Video of the Israeli forces shows them preparing to stop the next Gaza aid flotilla, as they have vowed to do. Because, clearly, the people of Gaza do not need aid.

"They shoot at us almost every day. They were shooting today, at our plants and at the earth.” - Nasr Abu Sa'ad.
