Carlos Latuff on Operation Cast Lead TWO: Is Gaza on the verge of another Israeli massacre?


Comment: See Occupied Palestine for live coverage of Israel's brutality in Gaza.

Also see Glenn Greenwald's article "Obama's Kill List Policy Compels US Support for Israeli Attacks on Gaza" (November 15).

This quote from Greenwald's conclusion captures his argument succinctly:
"Obama - the killer of Anwar al-Awlaki, Awlaki's 16-year-old American son Abdulrahman, and countless other innocent men, women, teenagers and children - could not possibly condemn Israeli actions in Gaza without indicting himself. Extra-judicial assassinations, once roundly condemned by US officials, are now a symbol of the Obama presidency, as the US and Israel converge more than ever before: if not in interests, than (sic) certainly in tactics."
