US complicity in Israel's attack on Gaza

Israeli attack

by Nora Lester Murad

It was very kind of Brenda from the US Consulate in Jerusalem to finally return my call at 7pm, long after work hours.

But the right-wing Israeli government took advantage of the tragedy to whip up ultra-nationalist sentiments, engage in a new wave of repression in the occupied West Bank, launch heavy mortar attacks and air strikes against civilian targets in the besieged Gaza Strip, and now to threaten all-out war.
