After Killing 1300 Palestinians, Israel Tries To Give Palestinians CandyJanuary 20, 2009 at 3:24 pm | Posted in American politics | 2 Comments
A most telling moment in this article.
In an effort to show the ordinary Gazans that the war was not aimed against them, Israel on Sunday opened a regional medical clinic for the people of Gaza in the huge new passenger terminal at the Erez border crossing.
By Monday afternoon only three patients had shown up for treatment, according to medical officials there, none of them casualties of the war.
There have been efforts to try to make the place cheerful, with colorful plastic jungle gyms for children. But when a group of children passed through on Monday, all cancer patients on their way to a hospital in East Jerusalem, the parents accompanying them had stony expressions on their faces, and the jungle gyms and a table of Israeli candies and snacks were left untouched.
Guilty conscience, Israel?
Maybe you should have tried that BEFORE you killed 1300 Palestinians.
