The conveyor belt of death.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Cindy Corrie wrote 'I want to point out that this past week, 19 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed by the Israeli military. The dead include five children, an old man, and a handicapped male. Thirteen of these deaths occurred in Gaza City's al-Shojaeya neighborhood where additionally forty Palestinians were wounded. Access to ambulances and medical staff was obstructed. Walls of some homes were destroyed. One thirty-six year old and his family were forced out of their house, ordered to take off their clothes and were then used as human shields to protect the Israeli soldiers from Palestinian resistance men confronting the forces. This use of civilians as human shields is illegal under international law.

This week, in other Palestinian areas, other children were killed and injured when Israeli forces opened fire damaging houses and hitting a hospital and school. One child was killed when forces opened fire on stone throwers.

A British journalist, James Miller, making an HBO documentary on the lives of Palestinian children in Rafah, was killed by Israeli forces though he and others had come out of a house waving a white flag and wearing vests marked "TV."

Eighteen houses were destroyed in Rafah this week, leaving more than 100 more Palestinian civilians homeless. According to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Regugees, since the beginning of the current strife in 2000, 12,737 Palestinians have seen their homes demolished. A great many demolitions have occurred near Gaza's border with Egypt where Israel is building what they call a security fence.'
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Israel is not a nation, it is a production line of dead bodies and despair, of ended family lines, of torture, of weapons creation, of weapons use.

Removal of resistance: It may be the worst place in the world, morally. Unification: That makes it harder to deal with, of course, but all the more important for EVERYONE to deal with. Perhaps the USA is just an infected object, stolen by one lot of people, now infected entirely by the power of Israel.
