How Politics and Lies Triggered an Unintended War in GazaJ.J. Goldberg - Forward "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately placed a gag order on the deaths.

Terror attacks are a fraction of the level during the nightmare intifada years — just six deaths in all of 2013. But few notice. The staged agony of the kidnap search created, probably unintentionally, what amounts to a mass, worldwide attack of post-traumatic stress flashback." ca 11/7/2014

Israel Bombs Gaza Back To Stone Age: Razes Only Power Plant And Plunges Strip Into DarknessJuan Cole - Countercurrents - Israel has completely reduced to rubble some 5,000 homes and damaged 26,000.
