Look again, Badger. That link is NOT for donating to the 1.5 million Palestinians being subjected to collective punishment and strangulation in Gaza. It is for the Israelis whose towns are being hit by their rockets.

Good! That will probably increase the generosity of the donations.

They are always begging for money, a handout, while hoarding Billions/Trillions, like the diamonds they have stored to control the diamond market. Why doesn't AIPAC fork over some of the millions it gets/uses to manipulate the US government. Over 2 million jews in NY, if each gave a $100 bill, why that's $200 Million. Didn't WE, the American taxpayers just give them another $3 Billion plus more in military aid?

Thanks. You are so right. I saw Gaza and thought I could donate to Gaza.

However the tide is turning away from even media sympathy for the poor Israelis. Look at the latest Newsweek. Subtle, but obviously sympathy for the Palestinians. Before, what we saw pictures of was the suffering Israelis.
The JCC thing was a farce. People leaving right and left. One man said he was a liberal Jew and just wanted to see what these people were saying. He left very early. The statements from the panel were basically ridiculous....like the cowboys talking about how the Indians weren't really using the land. Those wandering Arabs weren't really using the land that God's People were supposed to have either. The parallels there are pitiful. Interesting to really follow that analogy on.....

From today's Common Dreams :
"It is time Israelis and Palestinians start talking about pain instead of guilt," says Ido Gideon. "Both sides have to realise that the holocaust is as much a part of the Israeli national psyche as is the Nakba for the Palestinians." Nakba refers to the mass deportation of a million Palestinians from their cities and villages, massacres of civilians, and the razing to the ground of hundreds of Palestinian villages when the state of Israel was founded in 1948.
