Israeli Miltitary Murders Gaza Refugees at School

You didn't ask me, but the invasion of Gaza by Israel has now turned obscene.

The United Nations reports that at least 30 men, women and children were killed in a mortar attack on a U.N. school in Gaza.

And, in an act of utter contempt for truth seeking, Israeli has barred all journalists from the battle zone in Gaza - but they do give journalists full access to sites in Israel hit by Hamas rockets.

This is obscene.

These actions by the Israeli military mirror actions by dictatorships, totalitarian governments and human rights abusers.

These actions mirror those of governments without a moral compass.

This is obscene.

Back in the good ole USA, Barrack Obama said that "the loss of civilian life in Gaza and in Israel is a source of deep concern for me."

Wow - how's that for moral outrage?

This too is obscene.

Gaza is now sealed off, it's border with Egypt is closed, no medical personnel are allowed to enter the area.

Does this remind anyone of ghetto conditions?
