While they await their fate, they will still be subject to shelling by artillery and British warships and NATO bombing, and food, water and electricity have already been cut off.

Gaza: We have reached a point where answering the Zionist arguments is both useless and unworthy of humanity
8 January 2009 | There are surely millions of us, invisible to each other, enraged and powerless as we watch the massacre of Gaza and listen to our media describe it as a "retaliation against terrorism", "Israel’s right to defend itself". We have reached a point where answering the Zionist arguments is both useless and unworthy of humanity. So long as it is not recognized that the shells landing on Ashkelon are likely to have been fired by descendants of the inhabitants of that region who were driven out by the Zionists in 1948, talk of peace is a smoke screen for continued Israeli assault on the survivors of that great injustice.

The Ostrovsky Files - A Message From Hell
December 2000 | Occasionally an article appears that is so disturbing in nature that one wants to cry out to the world in anger and frustration, “stop!” The Tel Aviv daily Ha’aretz carried just such an article, by Aviv Lavi, on Dec. 23. For the most part Ha’aretz translates its articles—or somewhat sanitized versions—into English and makes them available on its Web site at www.haaretz.co.il/english. But others, like the one described below, remain untranslated for reasons that will become obvious.
