Been going to a lot of protests lately ...

I went to one this morning, this one on the 30th

and another one that shut down traffic when they started the ground invasion.

Once again, the news tried to ignore or distort the size and makeup of the protests, saying things like "hundreds of Arab-American protesters" when protesters numbered in the thousands and comprised a huge cross section of the American public, including many Jews. Today at the Federal Building where Nancy Pelosi's home office is, there was a whole Jewish band with us.

Right is right and wrong is wrong. Why aren't UN peacekeepers putting a stop to Hamas's "oh-so-scary" rocket attacks (no one was killed until Israel started firing, BTW, and Gaza has food, water, gas and all entry and exit points blocked off to them.

I'm heartsick about what's going on in Gaza right now, and very worried this will be used as a springboard for a wider war -- meanwhile Israel continues its land-grab that has been going on for 60 years financed with American tax dollars ...
