On this day July 21, 2014 I find myself horrified anew by the atrocities being committed in Gaza, once again. As I write this, per The Guardian "more than 425 Palestinians - mostly civilians - have been killed and about 3,000 injured." This probably isn't accurate, the numbers are sure to climb. Never mind the displaced, the destroyed property, the trauma. That Israel can do this again, and again, and again with seeming impunity is mind boggling.
THERE IS NEVER ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR KILLING INNOCENTS. Israel has the strongest army in the region. Gaza is a tiny area from which the population cannot escape. People running in the streets, bodies everywhere, the bombs falling--and now ambulances are being shelled, hospitals being bombed!!! It is sickness and lunacy. I beg the world to wake up and see this for what it is -- the indifferent murder of innocents under the usual cynical guise of "self defense"!!
