Janie Freeman: Suffering in Gaza

November 20, 2012 

Suffering in Gaza

What can justify raining bombs down on a very small area such as Gaza that is densely populated with families and children? The United States continues to give Israel $3 billion a year in aid to defend itself despite Israel’s strong military. The aid continues although homes in Gaza are demolished, checkpoints cut off travel, water flowing into Gaza is diverted, illegal settlements continue to rise.

Where will it end? Before it is too late The N&O and other media must report equally the pain and suffering of the Palestinians as well as tell the Israeli story.
