"Terrorizing Every Single Person in Gaza"

This is an important six and one-half minutes about what is happening and what the people are feeling in Gaza.

While some foreigners have left Gaza, the vast majority cannot. One such person trapped in Gaza is Taghreed El-Khodary, a journalist. She talks to Al Jazeera.



Meanwhile the U.N. call for ceasefire goes unheeded as Israel continues its massacre.

  1. The resolution made by this Congress is nothing short of approval of an Israeli pogrom of genocide.

    The ceasefire goes unheeded because Israel knows the US backs their every move. And as long as the US renders the UN irrelevant, so can Israel. And of course Hamas won't stop bombing until Israel does, and Israel won't stop until Hamas does.

    I am hearing more in the mainstream press about this from Gaza's perspective than I ever had before. It isn't enough, but it is a start, and it may educate some folks in the US about the reality of life as a Palestinian. There is hope - small hope, but hope none the less - that public opinion may compel the upcoming administration to be less sycophantic towards Israel's actions. But they probably won't do much until they learn the outcome of the upcoming Israeli elections.
