Take Action to Stop Collective Punishment by Massacre
Children killed in their sleep… "Today the world stands disgraced," declared Pierre Krähenbühl, commissioner-general of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees.
Rashid Khalidi cut to the heart of what's occurring in the New Yorker:
That these truths could make into the New Yorker shows how much U.S. public debate over Israel-Palestine is shifting. But it will require a lot more to start impacting actual U.S. policy. A host of actions and education initiatives are underway. Among them are the efforts listed below.

Peace!
