It's sick what Israel is doing, it's genocide, and the fact the U.S. blindly backs them is even more sick.

Although we shouldn't be surprised, what with our own gov't guilty of war crimes as well.

It should be banned for use as illumination and a smokescreen. That only provides an excuse...

One would think the terrorists would be man enough to quit hiding being the civil population and lobbing rockets at Israel. I feel for the poor civilians who get caught up between the two as the terrorists will make them stay there otherwise be killed by Hamas or other like minded terrorist organizations.
Like you, I am hoping Israel kills all those terrorists embedded like lice in the good people of Palestine.

The Inaugural Concert today was very moving but, in the face of all that hope among Americans, I couldn't help thinking about Gaza, where there is only mourning. I blogged about it, and included a brilliant video letter to Obama from an Israeli progressive. You can see it at www.suekatz.com. Thanks for all you do, Phillip.
