This morning I saw Gaza from the airplane #GFM

Flying straight south this morning along the Jordan-Palestine border the weather was so clear I could see west all the way across Palestine to the Mediterranean Sea. First I saw Jerusalem spread out over the red-brown hills like an ivory-colored blanket. Then at a certain point I could clearly see the distinctive curve of the coastline that runs from al-Majdal/Asqalan in Palestine to al-Arish in Egypt. Between them lies Gaza. The iPhone picture above is not nearly as clear as with the naked eye. But this morning I saw Gaza. Whether we will see it from the ground we don't yet know.
