It's a massacre

No, not Republicans. Palestinians:
Israel was placed on high security alert Wednesday, hours after Israel Defense Forces artillery shells struck a residential area in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanun early Wednesday, killing at least 18 Palestinians and wounding dozens of others.

Eight children and seven women were among the dead, the Palestinain Health Ministry said, adding that 18 of the victims were members of the Athamna family.

Khaled Radi, a Palestinian Health Ministry official, said all of those killed were civilians. According to witnesses, the victims were sleeping when the 15-minute barrage of shells first hit.

Radi also said at least 40 people were wounded, all civilians. Four hospitals are treating the wounded across Gaza.
Will any of those newly elected "antiwar" Democrats speak out against this American-financed war slaughter? Short answer: no. Now that the election's over, it will actually be a shock if they speak out against the other war, the one in Iraq (and even more of a shock were they to speak out against the war in Afghanistan).
