U.S. Helps Destroy Gaza


Amazing that 100 out of 100 U.S.senators approved the Israeli invasion (thanks to American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobby) and said that the rockets from Gaza were unprovoked. Unprovoked! Israel has imprisoned the entire population of Gaza for eight years and that is not a provocation? Israel broke the 2012 cease-fire agreement 120 times, and that is not a provocation? Israel has randomly imprisoned hundreds of Palestinians and assassinated many despite its promise of no hostility. That’s not provocation?

The U.S. has blood on its hands. U.S. taxpayers are supplying or funding every explosive that tears a child apart in Gaza. I’m so ashamed of the U.S. government. I’m so ashamed of the corrupted media and citizens who don’t take responsibility to check alternative news like Democracy Now.
