A Murder story in today’s Guardian; WHTT comments:

Only in Gaza can the world look the other way while a neighbor systematically murders unarmed persons almost daily. Jewish power over the press hides acts like this one from all but a few of us, while US presidents, one after another, look the other way. Worse yet, our current one, and those who support him blame the killings on the unarmed victims.

But lately, those of us who stand with the victims have a new ally we could not count on 17 years ago, when this writer visited Gaza, saw and filmed an Israeli murder raid from my rooftop in Gaza city. The United Nations is no longer remaining silent, nor is the London based Guardian who brings us this tragic story.

Peace must start where war is being ignored, in our American churches. We will continue to expose the silent complicity of our church leaders, as we have done since I watch Gazans being murdered by Israelis flying US Apaches, firing Hellfire Missiles on unarmed people. [Ed.-CEC]

United Nations officials described the killing of sleeping children as a disgrace to the world and accused Israel of a serious violation of international law after a school in Gaza being used to shelter Palestinian families was shelled on Wednesday.

At least 15 people, mostly children and women, died when the school in Jabaliya refugee camp was hit by five shells during a night of relentless bombardment across Gaza. More than 100 people were injured.

Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary general, said the attack was “outrageous and unjustifiable” and demanded “accountability and justice”. The UN said its officials had repeatedly given details of the school and its refugee population to Israel.
