Israel attacks continue in Gaza

leave a comment »

 

The death toll in Gaza has risen to 769 and just over 3000 people wounded. Without trivializing the Gaza invasion at all, that is just under half the number of people who have died of cholera in Zimbabwe since October 2008.

 

 

Attacks are still being carried out in Gaza, despite the acceptance of  United Nations resolution 1860 for a cease fire in Gaza that would lead to the withdrawal of Israeli troops.

Above:  If we take the generally accepted definition of bravery as being a quality which knows no fear, I have never seen a brave man.  All men are frightened.  The more intelligent they are, the more they are frightened.  The courageous man is the man for forces himself, in spite of his fear, to carry on.
