We will not go down (Song for Gaza)

The conflict continues.
Neither side will talk about conflict resolution, as usual..
The world is watching, as usual.
Israeli peace groups are protesting, as usual.
Children and other non-combatants are being injured and killed, as usual.
Israeli casualties are remarkably light, as usual.
In America, Christian Zionists shrug their shoulders, as usual.
Populations worldwide have antisemitism reinforced, as usual.

And with every child that is killed or injured, another Palestinian family is bonded closer than ever to the very group Israel is trying to defeat.

At some level the dynamic is not very different from genocide. Read the essay below.
I repeat what I said a year ago: I can't find any evidence that any other country is either trying or being invited to join Israel in the management of Gaza.
