Bomb Disposal Experts, Italian Journalist Killed by Gaza Blast

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Three members of a bomb disposal unit were killed in Gaza on Wednesday when an Israeli artillery shell they were attempting to move exploded, officials said. The blast in the northern town of Beit Lahia also killed 35-year-old Italian journalist Simone Camilli, who was working for The Associated Press. He was the first Western reporter to die in the current conflict. AP translator Ali Shehda Abu Afash also died in the blast, and 38-year-old AP photographer Hatem Moussa was among two seriously injured, the news agency confirmed. Earlier, police said four bomb disposal experts had died but this was later revised to three.

Israelís new lawyer: Hillary Clinton

by Peter Beinart

She sees the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through Bibiís eyes, which could be the reason she gets so much wrong.
Whoís the Israeli governmentís best spokesperson? Ron Dermer? Michael Oren? Bibi himself? Nope. Itís Hillary Clinton. In her interview on Sunday with Jeffrey Goldberg, Clinton offered the most articulate, sophisticated, passionate defense of Netanyahuís conduct Iíve heard from a government official on either side of the Atlantic. Unfortunately, important chunks of it arenít true.

Letís take her claims in turn

anyone else see General Russel Honore on CNN?

He was on a panel talking about Gaza, and was the sanest, most logical, reasonable person I have heard since this started. Basically he said :
This is a disaster, catastrophe and emergency. THEY HAVE TO STOP THE FIGHTING. JUST STOP. These people need water, food, medical care, the entire infrastructure, even sewage systems have been destroyed. We can get medical ships in there, and food, and start helping these people rebuild.
He didn't touch the politics of it all, and seemed disgusted no one is talking about the needs of the people.
I love him.
