To rescue one soldier –
Hundreds of thousands of civilians in the Gaza Strip are on the brink of a humanitarian crisis after Israel bombed the area’s only power plant.
The bombing Tuesday night cut 40 percent of power to the Gaza Strip and threatens to leave many of its 1.4 million civilians without water, Jan Egeland said.
As I write this, Google News lists 5,239 stories on the Gaza invasion, way more than normal for a big story. The whole world is watching this one.
That Israel used the kidnapping of one soldier as a pretext to try to destroy Hamas is a given. That the unintended consequences and repercussions from this will be staggering is also a given.
