Israelis protest Gaza atrocities
Note to Obama: Silence on Gaza is a moral choice, but the wrong one. From Tom Hayden.
How not to make peace in the Middle East. From the always wise Hussein Agha and Robert Malley, in the Jan 15 New York Review of Books.
What you don't know about Gaza. By Rashid Khalidi, professor of Arab studies at Columbia University, in the International Herald Tribune. For example: Most of the people living in Gaza are not there by choice. The majority of the 1.5 million people crammed into the roughly 140 square miles of the Gaza Strip belong to families that came from towns and villages outside Gaza like Ashkelon and Beersheba. They were driven to Gaza by the Israeli Army in 1948.
