Tzipi Livni, said that there is "no humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip"
She rejected a 48-hour cease-fire to allow humanitarian aid to enter the Gaza Strip, saying that Israel keeps the humanitarian situation..... Ready?
"completely as it should be" by distinguishing between soldiers and civilians.

"Health officials in Gaza say at least 400 people have been killed during Israel's six-day assault on Hamas. The United Nations estimates that about one-quarter of those killed were civilians" (i saw the pictures of the wounded children on cbs news). "One-point-five million Gazans are left with little food or supplies".

Okay but still Hamas started

Mone said...

I really don't understand politics, but I think they are firing these bombs because of the siege they are in, they have become like a cornered cat. I still don't understand what they are hoping to achieve though... but again, if Israel call them a terror state how can they ever talk together... something must happen out of the ordinary for a change...maybe some man who carries a character out of this world..otherwise civilians are dying for no reason at all!!!

mone - just so you know.. they started firing before we left.. continued while we left and never stopped.. except temporarily during several months over the truce..

i remember one of the first truces when it was violated hours after it commenced.. and i was praying so hard "please dont tell us it was hamas" and it yet it was :(

and then the spiral of disbelief went into turbo charge and since then hell has become a much nastier place from day to day..

mind you the seige is strange to me.. i understand our closed borders because we have a hostile state of affairs.. but our friends in egypt? i dont get it.. maybe they're sending a message to the muslim brotherhood.. but at what price? no one is sending thousands of qassams and mortar shells at them..

oh my god.. this is stright from the hospital in gaza, at the end there is a foreign doctor (probably german accent) and he is saying over 90% are civilian casualties and that Israel is not letting doctors in.. horrible..I m starting to think now that israelians are not made of blood and bones like the rest of us.. but wait the rest of the world is silent.. maybe I am on different planet!!!
