ISRAEL UNLEASHES A MASSACRE IN GAZA
Larry Everest (with research and assistance from other Revolution
correspondents) www.revcom.us

Beginning mid-day on Saturday, December 27, waves of U.S.-supplied
Israeli warplanes suddenly appeared over the skies of the Palestinian
territory of Gaza in broad daylight and unleashed a deadly barrage of
bomb and missile attacks that continue as we go to press. This could
not be taking place without the approval of the U.S., for whom Israel
serves as an enforcer in the Middle East. The U.S.-supplied Israeli
F-16 warplanes and Apache helicopters attacked all of Gaza's main
towns, including Gaza City, Khan Younis and Rafah, striking more than
210 targets in the first 24 hours of what Israel threatens will be
"war to the bitter end." Police stations—located in the middle of
civilian areas—government offices, the Islamic University, and many
other sites were hit. By Sunday, over 300 had been killed—including
many civilians and an estimated 700 wounded. It was the most
Palestinians killed in a single day in decades.

  2. Frankly, I think Hamas and the right-wing hardliners in Israel deserve each other. Its just too bad they can't just kill each other and leave everyone else alone. Hamas needs to be wiped off the face of the earth - they are a bunch of murdering thugs. As it is, they feed off of each other - Hamas gives excuses for the Israeli hardliners to get elected and launch airstrikes and the hardliners give cover to the murdering thugs of Hamas to claim that their evil is justified. And so on it continues, with the innocents in the middle getting killed.

    Yeah, the deaths of millions of people would definitely make my life slightly more convenient.

    You're all heart, DBB.
