PALESTINE  : OPINION/EDITORIAL:

THE DOGS OF WAR 
By Osamah Khalil, The Electronic  Intifada, 29 December 2008 

As a consequence of his foreign policy  misadventures, Bush
leaves the Middle East in flames and America's  reputation
in tatters. Yet, one thing has remained constant for the
aloof  president: deference to an Israeli "show of
strength" rather than diplomacy.  Only a year ago, Bush
hosted the Annapolis conference that "relaunched"  the
"peace process" and then predictably stood by as it
stalled out.  Unable to launch a war against Iran, capture
Osama bin Laden, pacify  Afghanistan or Iraq, or broker a
Palestinian-Israeli peace, rather than ride  into the
sunset in the waning days of his presidency, Bush is
determined  to leave in a final blaze of malicious
incompetence. As it has been so often  over the past eight
years, the site of his enmity is Gaza. Osamah  Khalil
comments for The Electronic  Intifada.

PALESTINE  : DIARIES: LIVE FROM PALESTINE:

THE LONGEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE 
By Safa  Joudeh, Live from Palestine, 28 December 2008 

Here's an update on what's  happening here from where I am,
the second night of Israeli air (and sea)  raids on Gaza.
It's 1:30am but it feels like the sun should be up
already.  For the past few hours there's been simultaneous,
heavy aerial bombardment of  Gaza City and the northern
Gaza Strip. It feels like the longest night of my  life.
Safa Joudeh writes from the besieged Gaza  Strip.

PALESTINE  : ACTIVISM NEWS:

GAZA CARNAGE SPARKS PROTESTS THROUGHOUT PALESTINE 
By  Mel Frykberg, The Electronic Intifada, 28 December 2008 

RAMALLAH,  occupied West Bank (IPS) - Anger, shock and
revulsion at the continuing  carnage in Gaza has ignited
spontaneous demonstrations and riots across the  West Bank
and Israel, sparking concerns of a possible third
Palestinian  uprising or intifada. More than 300
Palestinians were killed and at least 900  wounded
following an intensive Israeli air bombing campaign over
the Gaza  strip through the  weekend.

PALESTINE  : HUMAN RIGHTS:

MOST GAZA CASUALTIES WERE NON-COMBATANTS, CIVILIANS  
Press release, Al Mezan, 28 December 2008 

In one of its bloodiest  military operations, the Israeli
Occupation Forces (IOF) initiated a  wide-scale air strike
operation against the Gaza Strip. Dozens of targets  were
attacked from the air simultaneously using heavy missiles
and bombs.  Mostly, the strikes targeted police and
security installations across the  densely populated Gaza
Strip, which is indicative of IOF's disregard for  civilian
life and  well-being.
