In an interview with Ynet,  Sami Obeid, a journalist living in Rafah, said that “Most of those who live in Rafah are in tents. I see the tremendous suffering. There is no aid, the prices are very high. A kilogram of sugar is 40 shekels, a liter of milk is 50 shekels. There are no goods and no money. A pack of cigarettes costs 120 shekels.”

Asked whether he had received aid from the numerous humanitarian trucks entering the Gaza strip, Obeid replied bitterly: “How will they distribute it? There are many thieves. There is no police to control things. The residents are hungry. People take a bag of food and sell it to have some money. There is no police and no one to really deliver it. We are in a dilemma. The situation is difficult. You told us to move to Rafah. We have moved. Now you enter Rafah to fight, so return us to northern Gaza. What about us? We live in this hole. No money, no life.”

Obeid claimed that most residents in the Gaza strip had nothing to do with the October 7th infiltration and massacre: “We didn’t do October 7,” he avers. “Hamas did it. They did it and were wrong. Tens of thousands of dead, 100,000 wounded. How long will this last? Open the sea for us. Let us go. Hamas controls Gaza. If they come to my house, what can I do? What can I tell them? No one in Rafah will say a word about Hamas. They are afraid of Hamas, they control the area,” he said.

In a desperate plea to Israel, Obeid says: “Find us somewhere to go. Get us a country that will accept us. You don’t want us, find us a place. Load us on ships.”

And yet these people cheered when Hamas rode by waving Jewish heads and dragging Jewish bodies. They brought weapons into their homes and taught their children that Jews must be slaughtered like roaches. Don’t expect us to pity you now that the chickens are coming home to roost

Yeah. And have Hamas escape by ship. Sorry, you can’t be trusted. You are all Hamas.

Go far south of Rafah, blow a hole in the separation fence (you can do it), and now you’ll be in the Egyptian side of Rafah. Let’s see Egypt having to make a decision.

These dogs all elected Hamas so have no mercy for any of them they want us dead. Even little infants you see buried under rubble have no mercy for them because they’ll just grow up to kill jews. Let them all die. Everyone of those 2 million and all the west bank ones as well

The majority of Germans were not Nazis, but they allowed naziism to flourish. If the majority remains silent and complicit, it doesn’t matter what they feel or believe

Strap them all to the rockets they own and blast them off to sea.

Ireland said they would take them. Please let them enjoy their stay in Ireland.

Sami Obeid,
We have heard your plea.
President Biden & Governor Hochul are working on a plan to resettle thousands of Gazans to the Monroe & Monsey areas.
