and who is responsible for this massacre?

don't tell me that those who take up armed resistance to 61 years of occupation are to blame.

Here are the names of some of the criminals:

"Ehud Barak, Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni, Chief of Staff General Gabi Ashkenazi, and Air Force Commander General Ido Nechushtan."

The Guardian UK has posted a video from Fida Qishta in Gaza personal narratives of human rights abuses in Gaza.

The overworked doctors and nurses in Gaza City are the lifeblood of help for the injured of Gaza. These outstanding people are doing humane work under inhumane conditions--now their residence has been bombed. Watch Aftermath of attacks on Tar El Hawa district.

Yet, thanks to the corporate media of the US (and Canada, I would add), as Shirin Barghi and Dex A. Eastman state in "The rosy picture US media paints of genocide":

"While the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one that has its roots in the injustices of history, the average American who follows the news has almost no knowledge of the endless problems faced by the Palestinians as well as their philosophy of resistance.

Most Americans therefore know not even the simplest fact about the conflict: that there was no Israel before 1948 and that their own corrupt government joined European powers to steal the native land of the Palestinians. "

That's why every American should watch that very interesting debate you posted of GRITtv. I, thoroughly enjoyed it and sent e-mails to family and friends to watch it and also wrote in Arabwomanblues (but she hasn't opened her comments) and in my blog. Hugs, M.
