Gaza is dying

And so are the Palestinians there. Kel points to one of the most brutally grim articles I have read in awhile, and there have been plenty of those lately. Patrick Cockburn delivers an horrific report about the plight of Palestinians in Gaza who are now effectively in prison and slowly being starved to death. Kel also asks the pertinant question that, if you were Hezbollah and were watching what Israel was doing the Palestinians in Gaza, would you disarm? After reading this, the answer will be plainly obvious.
Gaza is dying. The Israeli siege of the Palestinian enclave is so tight that its people are on the edge of starvation. Here on the shores of the Mediterranean a great tragedy is taking place that is being ignored because the world's attention has been diverted by wars in Lebanon and Iraq.

A whole society is being destroyed. There are 1.5 million Palestinians imprisoned in the most heavily populated area in the world. Israel has stopped all trade. It has even forbidden fishermen to go far from the shore so they wade into the surf to try vainly to catch fish with hand-thrown nets.

Many people are being killed by Israeli incursions that occur every day by land and air. A total of 262 people have been killed and 1,200 wounded ...
Read more about the actions of that peace-loving nation of Israel. All being done in the name of the United States version of freedom and democracy. I'd like to ask Bill fucking Maher if he still likes what he sees going on there.

There are no words that express the shame that has been cast upon us for our tacit support of this atrocity.

when the tide changes, and it will, the only question will be how lenient will those who've suffered under the gun be with their former torturers and murderers
civilised? these killers and gangsters are nothing but a bunch of savages masquerading as civilised beings
