No resting in peace for Gaza dead

Of course, it is an effective way for Israel to make sure that its victims are dead!

Oh wait, may be it is the first phase of clearing it up before the L.A.-based Wiesenthal Center builds a "Museum of Tolerance" on top of it too!


No resting in peace for Gaza dead
By Nidal al-Mughrabi

GAZA (Reuters) - Stench, debris and human remains greeted Palestinians in the city of Gaza on Wednesday after an Israeli missile strike at dawn -- but in this case no one died.

A big explosion tore through the increasingly packed Sheikh Redwan cemetery, shattering tombstones and ripping bones and recently buried flesh from the earth.

I have somehow the hunch there won't be anough finances for the

Gaza ... words fail to describe how I feel. The genocide, the suffering, the helplessness, fear despair, the CHILDREN ... it is tearing me apart! I have friends in Gaza, DEAR friends .. non-political. All they want to is LIVE a decent life in dignity and provide appropriate education for their children. I have no clue if they are alive as there is no connection ... they live off Sheikh Radwan!

Thank you for standing up against hatred and for co-existence! There is far too much violence in this world ...
