Imagine Cheltenham was in the Gaza strip

The Gaza strip is tiny. If Cheltenham was in the centre, then the northern tip of the strip would be somewhere around the Toddington roundabout, just beyond Winchcombe, and the Rafah crossing to the south would be just before you get to Stroud.  Now imagine this area with 1,816,375 people living in it ….  now imagine all those kids, and all that destruction.

Doesn’t bear thinking about, does it?
