[and] Muslims have been forced to transform warehouses, parking lots, stadiums and supermarkets into places of prayer": Hamas’s decision to carry on fighting in recent weeks despite catastrophic civilian losses owed as much to Egypt’s refusal to lift this blockade as it does to Israel’s: "At least 17 people have been killed and 160 wounded in an Israeli strike that hit a fruit and vegetable market near Gaza City ... during a four-hour truce called by the Israeli military": Muslims and Christians in Palestine come together amid the current crisis, where a Greek church becomes "a haven not just for Christian but also hundreds of Muslim families seeking shelter there as the offensive drags on" ... ... but while the world celebrate the end of Ramadan, Palestinians in Gaza are shy to send each other Eid greetings, because they "don't feel right this year" said Mohammed Al Masri:   HSBC bank closes some Muslims accounts, and claims that the action was not taken based on race or religious discrimination.
