Single Bloodiest Day

[U]nprecedented waves

of airstrikes Saturday, killing at least 155 and wounding more than 310

missiles struck in densely populated areas as children were leaving

school, and women rushed into the streets frantically looking for their

children. . . . ''We are treating people

on the floor, in the corridors. We have no more space. We don't know

who is here and what the priority is to treat."

LIES AND PRETEXTS

"Security"
[N]o Israelis were killed or seriously injured in the recent [Palestinian] attacks.


http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/28/world/middleeast/28mideast.html?_r=1&hp

Who is the Real Victim Here?
By contrast, Israel has terrorized 1.5 million Gazans, locked them inside their awfully narrow borders, throttled their economy, and killed and seriously wounded thousands of them.

Livni talking in the news confrance Israel would not tolerate Hamas' rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip. From Reuters Pictures by REUTERS." class="photo" height="132" width="200">


Zionist Electioneering
Leadership

credentials will be built on spilling Palestinian blood.
http://counterpunch.org/amiri12262008.html

Breaking Palestinian Resistance


Israel wasn't willing to live and let live with Hamas - it was intent on

making them cry uncle or, ideally, on getting rid of Hamas altogether

by turning Gaza's population against them.

Coup d'etat
Gaza's

final and unpardonable sin was, in a completely fair election, to elect

a party that displeased Israel and the US. Elliott Abrams of

Iran-Contra infamy helped the reprisal along by engineering civil war

between Hamas and Fatah (see Vanity Fair, April, 2008.)

--Hours after the Israeli assault,

Gaza fighters fired home-made rockets into southern Israel, heeding

calls by Hamas and other affiliated Palestinian groups to avenge the

attacks, unprecedented in their scale. One Israeli was killed in the

rocket fire, medics said.

for Israeli air raids, assassinations and the sort, they would only

serve to help Hamas regain some popularity - and not only in Gaza, but

also in the West Bank and across the Arab-speaking world.
