Israel Gaza Genocide: 72 Killed Including 17 Children
(Five-month-old Muhammad Nasser Al-Bur’i was asleep in his parent’s bed in the family’s home when the Israeli missile aimed at the ministry of interior building in Gaza City struck on Wednesday evening. His mother had only just left the room when the tin roof collapsed and Muhammad was suffocated by the dust which filled the house as the Israeli planes shelled the nearby ministry.)
Israel pressed its genocide against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip with a series of strikes on Saturday, killing 35 people, including five children. According to medical sources, the number of Palestinians killed in the Israeli army incursion into the crowded Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza has reached 72 since Wednesday including 17 children and newborns, 3 women and 28 civilians. The sources added that at least 185 people have been injured including 78 on Saturday alone adding that 25 of them are in intensive care units. Speaking to Al-Jazeera satellite channel a senior medical official from the Palestinian Health Ministry said that no medical aids can reach Palestinian hospitals in Gaza because of the Israeli imposed blockade.
Isreal has threatened the besieged Gaza strip with a “holocaust.” Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said earlier Israel was considering the possibility of launching a wide-scale ground operation in Gaza.
Demonstrators poured into the streets on Friday throughout the impoverished and isolated territory to denounce the air strikes. “They’ve killed my right to childhood,” read a sign held by a child, clad in a red-stained white funeral shroud, who attended a large rally in Jabaliya.
“Gaza today faces a real war, a crazy war led by the enemy against our people,” said Ismail Haniya, the premier in the Hamas-led government. Haniya lashed out at the US administration, which he claimed backs the Israeli attacks by portraying them as “self-defense.” He also accused the Arab world of “encouraging the Israeli aggression” through its silence.

Abunimah is also a harsh critic of Israel and has protested outside pro-Israel events in the Chicago area.
“I knew Barack Obama for many years as my state senator — when he used to attend events in the Palestinian community in Chicago all the time,” stated Abuminah during an interview last month with Democracy Now!, a nationally syndicated radio and television political program.
“I remember personally introducing [Obama] onstage in 1999, when we had a major community fundraiser for the community center in Deheisha refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. And that’s just one example of how Barack Obama used to be very comfortable speaking up for and being associated with Palestinian rights and opposing the Israeli occupation,” Abunimah said.
According to quotes obtained by Gulf News, Abuniham recalled a 2004 meeting in a Chicago neighborhood while Obama was running for his senate seat. Abunimah quoted Obama telling him “warmly” he was sorry that “I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race.”
