Summary of reports from Gaza. Children are victims of continued terrorism & violence by Israeli Army

Most of the casualties in the latest violence by the Zionist USA Funded Israeli Army have been civilian.  The murderous campaign continues yet in another day of utter destruction.  Homes, apartment buildings, blocks of civilian housing areas, and businesses are being obliterated by high power missiles fired from the Israeli gunships that hover over the imprisoned defenseless Palestinians.

Bombs were dropping as children were walking in the streets on their way home from school. 

Journalists from the Foreign press association are not being allowed entry into Gaza to report on or to take pictures of the damage and human carnage.  They go as far as not even allowing the press near the borders.  This criminal homicidal atrocitiy continues as the whole world sits still and takes no action. 

The US and Britian had an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council and rejected a draft UN resolution to the halt of the Israeli attacks in Gaza.  Our US gov't and Britian are allowing the bloodshed just like they did in Lebanon.  President Bush is backing Israel's position against any type of ceasefire/truce.

The UN has trucks overflowing with supplies to help aid the Palestinian civilians, but they are not allowed to cross the border.  The UN is being charged an estimated $250k per month to rent storage space from the Israelis to hold the supplies.  (So, they are now profiting again)

Most of the bakeries and food businesses have been forced to close because there is no fuel to heat the ovens & cook the food.  There are bans on fishing off the coast.  Fisherman have been shot and killed.  Fishing boats are blow up and destroyed by the Israeli army.  They only allow a small number of persons fishing licenses (3,000 licenses).  A humanitarian aid boat was attacked and forced away when it was trying to deliver supplies, doctors & news media to the Gaza strip on Monday 12/30/2008.

Preventing humanitarian supplies (medical supplies, water, fuel, food, and equipment) from entering Gaza is another Zionist tactic.  People are not only dying from the bombings, but they are dying because there is no medication, a low supply of bandages, no blood products & plasma, lack of anti-biotics, need for surgery equipment, need for oxygen, need for fuel to keep the electricity running, need for clean water to clean & disinfect the wounds, clean drinking water, and IV fluids.

The few working hospitals are over crowded with seriously injured victims.  The hallways are drenched in blood and they stink from all the dead bodies.

The Gaza strip has a population of more than 1 million persons squeezed into about "Measuring only 360 square kilometres in area.  750,000 are registered refugees, 55% of the this population living 8 tiny refugee camps.  More than 50% of the entire population in Gaza are children.  The population of Gaza civilians are both Muslim and Christian.

If you watch the news coverage in the USA, it is not reporting an accurate account of what is happening in Gaza today.  The real number of injured is more than 2,500 and the number of dead is more than 1,000 it is not the low numbers they are reporting and printing in the newspapers.  The casualties may be even higher once the UN can get in and begin counting all of the dead.

At this very minute, the Zionist Israeli Ground Troops, tanks, and bull-dozers are massing at the borders.  They are gearing up for another day of Bomging, terrorizing, and murdering more civilians (including children).
