When the Sky and Sea Burned in Gaza

Via Juan Cole

I know that a majority of Americans including progressives supported the murderous attack against Gaza but you should at least watch the video above. If that doesn’t move you then I don’t think anything will. Take a good look at the results and perhaps it will move you because that is what war is -- human suffering, look at the horribly burned children screaming in pain. There is nothing noble about this but then insanity never is.

Apparently medical supplies are still in short order for Gaza causing unimaginable suffering even after the assault ended. Please go to this link and donate what you can. If any bloggers are reading this please pass the word along.

This and Juan Cole's post are both excellent and needed reminders. As far as your assertion that most Americans approved of the attacks on Gaza, I hope you are mistaken.

Hi Jonathan,

I believe the Rasmussen Poll showed 44 percent in favor of the attack, 41 percent against the attack, and 15 percent undecided. I found those numbers to be pretty disappointing and chalked it up to the propaganda provided by the news media and that a lot of people were just not aware of the facts.
