Abu Muhammad was 200 meters from the hospital, when an awful sound was heard: Three large police centers which were bombed, were located close to the hospital. "Within seconds, this was a little Baghdad, bombs everywhere, smoke, fire, people not knowing where to hide. Fear everywhere, and rage and hatred," he said.

Two and a half years later, these words repeat themselves, to our horror, with chilling precision. Within the span of a few hours on a Saturday afternoon, the IDF sowed death and destruction on a scale that the Qassam rockets never approached in all their years, and Operation "Cast Lead" is only in its infancy.

Not that our brave peace envoy, Lord Blair, would have much to say about it. He's the man, remember, whose only proposed trip to Gaza was called off when yet more "Israeli experts" advised him that his life might be in danger. Anyway, he'd still rather be president of Europe, something Sarko wants to award him. That, I suppose, is why Blair wrote such a fawning article in the same issue of Time which made Obama "person" of the year. "There are times when Nicolas Sarkozy resembles a force of nature," Blair grovels. It's all first names, of course. "Nicolas has the hallmark of any true leader"; "Nicolas has adopted..."; "Nicolas recognises"; "Nicolas reaching out...". In all, 15 "Nicolases". Is that the price of the Euro presidency? Or will Blair now tell us he's going to be involved in those "conversations" with Obama to "build on some of the progress" in the Middle East?

'Israeli' Palestinians react to the massacre in Gaza


Violent clashes erupted on Sunday between Israel Police officers and Israeli Arabs in the town of Umm al-Fahm, where protesters have been staging a mass demonstration against the Israeli campaign in Gaza, which has so far killed more than 280 Palestinians and wounded scores more.

We can be sure 'Israeli Jews' will be protesting against this massacre, even if their reaction is of less interest to the media.

Background: who broke the ceasefire?

Only if Egypt sent helicopters would the majority of serious cases be able to accept the offer, said Head of Emergency and Ambulance Services in the Ministry of Health Muawiya Hassanain.

Hassanain appealed to Arab states to send medical supplies so cases could be treated without being moved, and Saturday night Egypt made a second promise to send four loads of medical supplies to Gaza hospitals.


Greek police issues appeal for solidarity to Germany and Israel


Greece 'runs out of tear gas' during violent protests

Greece has issued an international appeal for more tear gas after supplies ran low because police fired so much of it during a week of violent protests across the country

You'd think this was the title of an article in a satyrical media, like The Onion.
But no! It's the Telegraph...ok some people might say that is a satyrical paper, but that's another debate.

The greek government is urgently seeking fresh supplies of tear gas from Israel and Germany, the police said.

This is all too grotesque to be true...surely. No? Please!
