      It seems the beast that is the right wing Likud comes out from hiding every decade or so to feast on the blood of Palestinians. Infused with the taste of fresh blood like a parasite mosquito, we see hoards of Israeli gathering on the hilltops overlooking Gaza and cheering the outright murder of Gazans with what has to be some of the most damning evidence of war crimes captured on video. The risible claim of forewarning residents of homes about to be bombed was all over American TV today and showed the 58 second time frame in which family members had to evacuate their two story home. Then boom, the house is blown to bits along with its occupants. The Israeli ambassador comes on TV to defend this practice too. A bloodlust pure and simple as Israeli officials want nothing more than to drive every last Palestinian into the sea to make room for yet more settlements. I would remind them of the good old book and the David vs. Goliath tome. Stranger things have happened.
