(July 26, 2014) Israel's rank and rotten fruit is being called fascism
The images from Gaza are searing, a gallery of death and horror. A dishevelled Palestinian man cries out in agony, his blood-soaked little brother dead in his arms.
On a filthy hospital bed a boy of perhaps five or six screams for his father, his head and body lacerated by shrapnel.
A teenage girl lies on a torn stretcher, her limbs awry, her face and torso blackened like a burnt steak.
Mourners weep over a family of 18 men, women and children laid side by side in bloodied shrouds.
Four boys of a fishing family named Bakr, all less than 12 years old, are killed on a beach by rockets from Israeli aircraft.
As I write, after just over a week of this invasion, the death toll of Palestinians is climbing towards 1000. Most are civilians, many are children.
Assaulting Gaza by land, air and sea, Israel has destroyed homes and reduced entire city blocks to rubble. It has attacked schools, mosques and hospitals.
