“I was severely tested by the plots of the Jews.”
Those are the words of the Apostle Paul from the New Testament Book of Acts, chapter 20, verse 19. I wonder how many people today might feel an affinity, or at least a measure of empathy, for the sentiments the apostle was expressing.

A Shift Among Evangelicals … Especially Among the Young
We documented yesterday that the biggest supporters of Israel are American evangelical Christians … Protestants or – to a lesser extent – Catholics.
But that support base is slipping …
Independent Catholic News
The Holy Family Latin Church in Gaza has just received an evacuation order warning them that Israei is planning to bomb their neighbourhood tonight. In a message, a priest writes: ” The church of Gaza has received an order to evacuate.. they will bomb the Zeitun area and the people are already fleeing. The problem is that the priest Fr George and the three nuns of Mother Teresa have 29 handicapped children and nine old ladies who can’t move.
“How will they manage to leave?? If anyone can intercede with someone in power, and pray, please do it. We are trying.. may our impotence be taken up by his Omnipotence!!”
The House of Christ in Gaza, is a care home dedicated to looking after disabled children. The disabled children were removed from the care home into the Holy Family Church recently because Israel was targeting the area.
The parish appeal for prayers.
an other Gaza
in chaos one man collects
his daughter into a plastic bag
oh my god the bag is leaking
one kisses a cave was baby boy face just this
morning braids unplaiting phosphorous
wordless exhaust smoke shock
Rami Rayan was a 23-year-old Gaza journalist who worked for a local website…
Gaza journalist Mohammed Omer, appearing on Democracy Now, says that Israel is targeting children in Gaza. He also mentions a bombing attack upon a Gaza cemetery, following which he observed a Palestinian woman gathering the bones of her son who had died some years previous. Click here to view his report.
“Anytime you see a person attacked by the Israel Lobby, you know for certain that the person under attack is the salt of the earth. The distinctive mark of a moral human being is to be attacked by the Israel Lobby and the presstitute American media.”
–Paul Craig Roberts
All the evidence that we are seeing now points to a campaign of genocide being waged in Gaza. Below are a couple of stories that would support that conclusion, the first regarding a leaked account of “revenge attacks” being carried out by Israeli soldiers against the civilian population of Shujayya, the second concerning a call by Moshe Feiglin, deputy speaker of the Israeli Knesset, who says the entire Palestinian population should be expelled and the Gaza Strip resettled by Jews. Also below–a story about a New York rabbi saying in a speech that Palestinians who voted for Hamas are legitimate military targets, and I’m also including a recent poll taken in Israel showing that less than 4 percent of Israeli Jews think “excessive firepower” has been used in the course of their government’s military operation in Gaza. This is very similar to a poll conducted five years ago that showed 96 percent of Israelis supported Operation Cast Lead.
Most people may remember Geoffrey Pyatt as Victoria Nuland’s sidekick. That’s him in the photo above when he and Vicky went handing out cookies in Kiev’s Maidan Square in November of last year.
