Gaza Massacre

The Gaza Massacre Continues … and The worse is to come :

The fact that Israeli army reservists have been called up… suggests that the air strikes will be followed by ground incursions

More than 300 killed most of them are civilians and 800 injured !

No humanitarian aid, fuel or other commodities were able to get into Gaza, Monday, as the crossing points into the Strip remained closed, the United Nations reported.

Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert defended the action, saying the airstrikes came in response to repeated rocket attacks by Hamas on Israeli civilians, and warned that military operations in Gaza would “take time”.

Ismail Haniyeh, leader of the Hamas government of the Gaza Strip, said: “Palestine has never witnesses an uglier massacre.”

Hamas said the casualties included children walking home from school.

The United States did not call for the air strikes to stop but said caution was needed.

  1. I am trying to understand the logic of men who put their ideology above the safety of their children. For example by firing rockets form civilian areas and not expecting retaliation that might injure kids. It is both sad and infuriating all at once. I wish I could understand what the Palestinians expect would happen to them? I believe the only solution here may be for once side to eradicate the other. Old chineses saying…”never slap an enemy.”

    I suffer at the thought what the children are going through and truly wish no ill on the innocent on either side.
