As the world watches what’s unfolding in the Gaza Strip, some people are now lucky enough to tell the story of what they endured.

Most of the roughly 400 Canadians who were trapped in Gaza have escaped through the Rafah border crossing into Egypt and are safely back in Canada, but they’re still worried about loved ones they had to leave behind.

Touria Izri speaks with some of those Canadians about their bittersweet feelings of returning home.

  1. Thanks for continues updates 👍I'd rather trade the Crypto market as its more profitable. I make an average of $44,300 per week even though I barely trade myself 🎉🎉🎉🎉❤️❤️❤️

  2. It’s true when he mentioned “they smell it”. I’ve lived 2 km from a bombed site and it stinks horribly as toxic fumes like burnt steel pots and it gave me permanent sinus problems for life.

  3. If you live in a country where your own government makes such catastrophic decisions as building army bunkers under children's hospital, and horrific projects like massacre civilians in the neighbouring country….YOU ARE TAKING A BIG RISK.

  4. “Truly I tell you, if anyone obeys my teaching he shall never know what it is to die.” – (The Prophet and Messiah Jesus of Nazareth at John 8: 51) – So never worship and pray in the way of the many false prophets who lead all religions.

    “But when you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you.

    In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.

    Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him.

    This is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

    Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,

    Give us today our daily bread,

    Forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us.

    And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.

    For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever.


    For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (Jesus the Messiah at Matthew 6: 6-15) –

    “Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged. For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you.” – (at Matthew 7: 1-2) –

    “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.

    Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” – (Matthew 7: 12-14) –

    “I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe. He shall go in and out and shall find pasturage.

    The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.” – (John 10: 9-10) –

    “Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (Matthew 7: 15-16) –

    “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – (Matthew 7: 21) –

    “I am the resurrection and I am life. If a man has faith in me, even though he dies, he shall come to life; and anyone who is alive and has faith shall never die.” – (John 11: 25-26) –

    “I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world” – (John 12: 47) –

    “Whoever then will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) –

    “I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) –

    “An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’” – (Matthew 22: 35-40) –

    “There is no greater love than this, that a man should lay down his life for his friends.” – (John 15: 13) –

    “Do not call any man on earth ‘father’ ; for you have one Father and he is in heaven. Nor must you be called ‘teacher’ ; you have one Teacher, the Messiah.’” – (Matthew 23: 9-10) –

    “Take care that no one misleads you: For many will come claiming my name…” – (Matthew 24: 4) –

    “Many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many; and as lawlessness spreads, men’s love for one another will grow cold. But the man who holds out to the end will be saved. ” – (Matthew 24: 11-13) –

    “Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. And be assured, I am with you always, to the end of time.” –(Matthew 28: 20)–

    Yours, in true Spirit and in our one given prayer, 2gointruth, on Wednesday the 15th of November 2023: – (Matthew 5: 14-16) – Where every minute (of both day and night) can be a new beginning for any one of us. Let it always be you. Pray to God often, as prescribed above, before it is too late.
