Letter to the Editor

Gaza being crushed by Israel

Regarding "Israel invades Gaza as attacks rise," the people of Gaza are equivalently on death row (July 18).

Besieged by a hostile and powerful Egypt at one end and by Israel, the fourth-strongest military force on Earth at the other, the people of Gaza have no army, navy, air force or even an air field. They are David, senselessly and desperately hurling unguidable pebbles at the Israeli Goliath, giving Israel the excuse to continue its economic and military crushing of the Gazan people.

Because Israel and Egypt have been the two principal recipients of U.S. foreign aid, the blood of Gazan children, women and men is on our fiscal American hands.
