THE GAZA STRIP IS DYING

Today at 1:30 PM MST
An hour or so ago, I was online chatting with Rana Alshami, my friend and a 21 year old college student from Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip. It is Zero degrees right now with a new storm forecast for later in the week. Many of Rana’s neighbors are in the hospital. The streets are filled with sewage. Israel let loose a couple of dams, the sole purpose apparently to make life harder than it already is for the people of the besieged Gaza Strip. Electricity is available only a few hours per day. People are freezing to death and starving.
      This is not warehoused slaughter like Nazi Germany, just the opportunistic use of bad weather to wear Palestinians down and to let them know that their destiny is being manipulated by and is subject to the whims of a cruel and sadistic oppressor with no regard for their well being..
     Please contact your congresspeople and state department officials and let them know that decent people do not support the Israeli government’s assault on the indigenous people of the land it claims exclusively for itself, nor do decent people pander to phony claims of security by a nation whose behavior in the name of security and in the name of the Jewish people incites anti-Semitism, making Jews around the world less secure.

  1. It is incredible but true. The US administration and the Congress are more concerned with campaign and other donations and with reelection prospects than human life.
