The crisis in Gaza is so serious, it can be seen from space

International Space Station astronaut Alexander Gerst has posted his “saddest photo yet.” From all the way up in the thermosphere, ISS personnel orbiting 200 miles over the Middle East can see bombs and missiles exploding in Gaza and Israel as the two sides go to war.

Detailed explanation of the photo | Follow micdotcom 

OK except this is fake. You know how people say you can see The Great Wall of China from space? Well, you can’t. And the Wall is way bigger than Israel. Israel is just a bit smaller than New Jersey, Gaza included. This is just a normal ariel shot of Israel at night. People will use anything to try and convince others that Palestinians are being oppressed and attacked, rather than a bunch of useless people who elected terrorists as their government and then found out the hard way what a bad idea that was.
