Just More Killing in Gaza



  1. Over 1,000 Palestinians dead - today Israel hit a UN food warehouse in Gaza. Israel claims Hamas was launching rockets from there.
  2. A few days ago a Palestinian hospital was hit in Gaza. Israel claims Hamas was launching rockets from there.
  3. A week ago, a UN school for children was hit in Gaza. Israel claims Hamas was launching rockets from there.

My God, with the amount of rockets being launched by Hamas that is just forcing those poor, poor, defenseless Israeli's to mercilessly bomb the people of Gaza, this must surely be an-all out assault on Israeli, I mean the people of Israel must be really suffering!

  1. Paul Young is coming to Israel and eager to check out some Israeli cuisine.
  2. A brilliant group of dancers and an inquisitive choreographer offer an intriguing work that explodes with energy.
  3. Israel's only shoemaking school, nestled in the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station, celebrates a successful year.

These are the sub-headlines in the Jerusalem Post Arts & Culture section. Must be nice to even have an Arts & Culture section, the people of Gaza don't have water, food or electricity, let alone a newspaper!

It is apparently clear to everyone in the world but the United States that what Israel is doing now is not defense but genocide. They are killing off the Palestinian people and those they don't kill with their bombs, they kill by denying aid. And you know the best part, as the BBC says, "Israel has refused to allow international journalists to enter Gaza," (More Than 1,000 Killed in Gaza, January 15, 2009, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7828884.stm). If you are not doing anything wrong, if you are defending your country, as Israel claims, from the big bad Hamas (which was democratically elected btw) than why not allow foreign journalists onto the other side, see the supposed, "bad guys?" Why are you denying aid or bombing aid workers, if what you are doing is right?

I am disgusted.

Nobody wins. Though I understand why Israel is doing what they are doing, I oppose it. This kind of random killing does not help in any way, shape, or form.

Jeez, it's 2009 people, when will we ever learn?????
