As I write, the Israelis have slaughtered 160 Palestinians in their latest mad-dog military adventure, the vast majority being civilians including 35 children. 934 others have been wounded, including 280 children.

No sooner had peace talks restarted under the warped patronage of the United States than Israel’s prime minister Netanyahu published bids for the construction of more than 1,000 new housing units in Palestinian East Jerusalem and existing illegal West Bank squats.
While a fanfare of trumpets announced the resumption of so-called peace talks between Israel and the trampled Palestinians, to be held under the watchful eye of America’s Zionist ‘facilitators’, the Israelis were awarding special priority grants and other government funding to a number of their outlying West Bank “settlements”.
The day after Israel laughed at Obama, things got awry. Not on the formal level; American flags are larger than ever, Netanyahu’s baritone is deeper than ever, and Palestinian despair is sadder than ever.
