Sanitary crimes against humanity


The Palestinians refuse to cooperate in their own eradication, so they must be annihilated. The Israelis are doing their best to accomplish it. The American people pay for it.

Laila El-Haddad got through to her parents in Gaza city center.

My mother was in the Red Crescent Society clinic at the time of the initial wave of attacks, where she works part-time as a pediatrician. Behind the clinic was one of the police centers that was leveled. She said she broke down at first, the sheer proximity of the attacks having shaken her from the inside out. After she got a hold of herself, they took to treating injured victims of the attack, before they transferred them to Shifa hospital.

...the Israeli war planes attacked people and locations all around them. Over 50 "targets"by 60 warplanes, read the headlines in Haaretz. And over 200 Palestinians killed. Like a game, if you say it enough times, it does not sound real anymore. Like a dare. 50 targets, 60 warplanes, 200 people. All very sanitary. Very cool. Neatly packaged; war in a gift-box. ...

The rains of death continue in Gaza.

And it will all seem, in the end of the day, that they are somehow a response to [Palestinian] rocket attacks [on Israel.] As though the [everyday] situation were not only acceptable -- but normal, in the absence of such attacks. The warden improves the living conditions now and then, in varying degrees of relatively, but the prison doors remain sealed. And so when there are 20 hours of power outages in a row, the prisoners wish that they were only 8; or 10; and dream of the days of 4.

Like our rulers, they do it because they can.

Thank you

are people already at the door of the Israeli Consulate in San Francisco demonstrating? if not, don’t wait for a Jewish or an Arab organization to call you for a demonstration. Call them. Do something please.

i will keep looking forward to a change in the USA. Let all this suffering bring wisdom to your rulers through your actions. from here, in Lebanon, i will not despair to see Truth and Justice prevail, although it is difficult to stop crying recalling the Warsaw Ghetto
