And a happy New Year to you too, Israel. Revel in these pictures for now, but your turn will surely come; how can the cycle of violence stop while you continue to maintain your inhuman and vindictive siege of Gaza?
Postscript 3 January 2009: On the 8th day of Israeli attacks, the death toll has reached 440 and number of injured 2285. Israeli tanks have been shelling a number of areas to prepare the way for incursions into Gaza from several entry points. A number of civilians have been reported killed as a result of the shelling.
