U.S.-backed baby-killing continues in Gaza

When last we reported on the subject, at the end of February, the death toll stood at 98. Now, despite the signing of a "truce" between Israel and Hamas, the U.S.-backed, Israeli-executed crimes against humanity continue:
The Palestinian Health Ministry reports...that 46 patients have died due to the continued Israeli blockade of the coastal region since the Egypt-brokered truce deal came into effect between the two sides 78 days ago.

It said that 10 children were among the dead.

Palestinian patients died in Gaza hospitals due to the lack of medication while they were barred from leaving the impoverished strip for medical treatment elsewhere.

The ministry said that a total of 241 patients have so far died due to the Israeli siege.

More than 1,500 patients are currently facing death.
Will Barack Obama, or John McCain, or Condi Rice, or George Clooney, or anyone else do anything to save those 1,500 people, or to condemn the ongoing genocide in Gaza? Not bloody likely.
