The villages of Khuza’a, Al Fukhari, Abasan Alkabir, Abasan Al Sa’ir, Jarara, and Bani Suhela received no warning of the attacks, and no warnings to evacuate before the bombardment began at around 11pm last night.

The intensity of Israeli shelling around the Algerian Hospital in Abasan Alkabir shattered its windows, and led to its evacuation, leaving only the emergency department operational.

Calls for genocide enter Israeli mainstream

21 July 2014 — Jonathon Cook

As we watch the horrifying slaughter unfold in Gaza, bear in mind the Israeli psychosis that fuels and justifies it. Here are comments from three rightwing Israelis – two leading politicians and a professor – who very much reflect a strain of mainstream thinking in Israel, one that the international media largely avoids noting.

The End of Israel? By Gilad Atzmon

21 July 2014 — Gilad Atzmon

GazaFriends: A plea from Dr. Mona ElFarra

Every day I have been trying to get news to the world—through radio interviews and writing in email, on Facebook.
