Gaza

I'm enraged about the Gaza blockade. I saw a photo in the NYT last night of a kid sitting on top of a pile of food bags, and the NYT called it something like "A Palestinian sits on top of bags after a shopping spree..." Not, "A child sits on top of gruel he had to walk miles and miles through the desert for because the governments that surround him have failed to see that his life is worth something."

Leila Abu Saba has a really great round-up here on Gaza commentary and news.

My favorite thing being said right now is that the bust-out is a signal that people are taking their survival into their own hands.

There was also an amazing thing said on Al Jazeera: "If Gaza is the world's biggest prison, this is the world's biggest jailbreak."

As I stated before, the gazans have not only liberated themselves, but also the egyptians. this earthshattering burst-out is a mighty spit in the faces of the arab rulers, particularly non-mubarak, who are all complicit in the siege and starvation of the gazans.
