Man site in ruin, Gaza

Man sits in ruin, Gaza

“Dear Mum… ‘aving a smashing time here in Gaza. The ‘otel is a bit rustic and needs a coat of paint and the telly don’t work proper. It’s fully booked with dozens more dying to get in. Last night was a firework show put on by the IDF. Lovely people and no expense spared. I ‘erd that Mr. Obama actually paid for the fireworks since Israel is broke. We saw lots of lovely Israeli people watching the display from their deck-chairs on their side of the fence. One little girl actually got a sparkler dropped on her ‘ead. She lite up like a blooming candle. What fun. Gotta run as the IDF want to play more games. TTFN and hugs, your son Mo.”
