The Palestinian Center for Human Rights has issued a statement about the cesspool disaster in Gaza. The incident is a disgusting example of the combined effects of Israeli occupation and their closure and bombing policies of Gaza, and the incompetence and negligence of the Palestinian Authority. The logical conclusion of this deadly combination is that poor Palestinians drown in a flood of sewage. How fitting!
Something like this was actually predicted by the Palestinian writer Sahar Khaliefeh, in her post-Oslo novel The Inheritance. A sewage project, presented as the fruit of Oslo, ends up drowning Wadi el Reehan with stench. The drowning there was metaphorical. What happened in Gaza is no metaphor, because Gaza, it seems, does not like poetry.
Update: here you can read the statement of the Palestinian Medical Relief Society.
