Palestine update

This just in:
A bomb dropped by an Israel Air Force plane destroyed the Palestinian Foreign Ministry building in Gaza City early Thursday, witnesses said.

The bomb collapsed the building and caused widespread destruction in the area.
Meanwhile, both the U.S. and the E.U. have condemned Hizballah's seizure of two Israeli soldiers, with the U.S. escalating its attack on governments it doesn't like by blaming Iran and Syria, while at the same time no one--no one in the U.S. government, no prominent politician, no U.N. official--as far as I can tell, has said a word about Israel's murder of nine civilians by intentionally dropping a bomb on their house, nor any other action taken by the Israeli government. And as a representative example of the liberal response in the United States, the Huffington Post has more than 20 posts/essays on its front page as I write this, covering such important subjects as Bill O'Reilly, Karl Rove, Superman, and other topics (why there's even one or two about Iraq). Not one even mentions Palestine.

Here in San Francisco, there's another demonstration against this outrage tomorrow; hopefully, the same is true elsewhere around the country and around the world. Stand Up, Speak Out.
