In a village in southern Gaza, an old Palestinian woman stood surveying the wreckage of her life, and her home - bulldozed by the Israeli army.Still Blair made a jolly good speech.
Subhiya Mouamr pointed out her family's store of flour strewn in the rubble, and the tent she now lives in.
"We sit here - between the earth and the sky - and we survive just on what the Red Cross brings us," Subhiya Mouamr said.
"They destroyed everything."
But on that night when the Israelis came late last week, Subhiya Mouamr lost even more than her home and all that she owned.
She also lost her son and her daughter-in-law.
What happened in the village of Um al-Nasr is typical of the nature of the Israeli offensive in Gaza - which is now going into its fourth month.
