Gaza doctor who lost 3 girls in Israeli shelling demands explanation
excerpt~

He said he wanted to meet with Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak to hear firsthand why his children were killed.

"I want him to have the courage, to have the concern to meet me to tell me why, without falsification," he told Associated Press Television. "I'll be proud that my children were the symbol of this war - that their blood wasn't futile. That it awakened the concern of some, not the majority, of Israelis."

1. If Ehud Barak could find the courage to meet this man
I wonder if he'd give the same explanation his friends in the Bush administration used in Iraq:
"You have to break eggs to make an omlette."

People aren't eggs, you fucking murderers.

2. that was awful..
heart-breaking to listen to, even though I didn't understand the language. I suppose I should be grateful for that.

3. He should also ask Obama how Obama would feel if an occupying army
slaughtered his innocent daughters. Obama is quick to side with the Israelis but has not shown empathy for the Palestinians.

4. During an interview as he was wheeled from the hospital
in Israel, after his friends there had arranged for ambulance access (he was a regular commentator on Israeli TV as well as being a doctor in an Israeli hospital before the blockade of Gaza made that impossible), he was being screamed at by Israeli men and women who were utterly vicious. They were saying he was responsible for the deaths of his children because he surely had been using his home as a launch pad for rockets or harbored Hamas fighters who were shooting at the Israeli army.

Sound familiar?
