Power Shortages Hit Gaza Maternity WardJesse Rosenfeld - the Daily Beast "Members of the hospital staff say they are seeing 15 to 20 percent more premature births since the Israeli offensive began in Gaza more than two weeks ago. Then, on Tuesday, the Israelis hit the Gaza power plant. Many homes and institutions have their own generators, but fuel for those is running out, and without electricity to operate pumps, many people are going without water. At Shifa Hospital the generators are old and cranky and don’t always kick in right away." ca25/7/2014

Blast, a Fire and an Israeli Soldier Goes MissingISABEL KERSHNER and JODI RUDOREN - The New York Times - Capturing an Israeli soldier — or even withholding a soldier’s remains — can have a powerful impact on Israeli society, more in some ways than death. Israel in the past has traded the freedom of hundreds of prisoners in exchange not just for the living — like Gilad Shalit, who was held from 2006 to 2011 before Israel negotiated a trade for his release — but also for the corpses of soldiers who died in battle.-rh 24/7/2014
Why Israel should accept Hamas` termsBen-Dror Yemini - Ynet - So Israel must make a move: It must accept Hamas` conditions, add to them, and announce its agreement to a ceasefire, in exchange for the Strip`s demilitarization by an international force.-rh 24/7/2014
It is a war crime to target densely packed Gaza homesRaji Sourani - The Irish Times - The purpose of the Gaza doctrine is straightforward: disproportionate force is used to cause terror among the civilian population to exert political pressure on the authorities in Gaza. This policy of collective punishment, of deliberately causing terror, is unequivocally illegal but it is all too real.-rh24/7/2014

Gaza faces imminent water crisis Ala Qandil - Al Jazeera "For seven days now, when Khalil Hassan turns on the tap, he finds no water. He must now go back and forth between his home and an open vegetable stand in Zeitoun district, where he collects water from a truck with a water tank."I have 30 people living at home, and not a drop of water for almost a week,” Hassan told Al Jazeera." ca 18/7/2014

Ravaging Gaza: The War Netanyahu Cannot Possibly WinRamzy Baroud - Antiwar.com "But there is still more to Israel’s war on Gaza than this. Fearing an intifada that would unite Palestinians, threaten the PA, and slow down the construction of illegal settlements, Netanyahu’s war on Gaza means to distract from the slowly building collective sentiment among Palestinians throughout Palestine, and among Palestinian citizens in Israel.This unity is much more alarming for Netanyahu than a political arrangement by Fatah and Hamas necessitated by regional circumstances. The targeting of Hamas is an Israeli attempt at challenging the emerging new narrative that is no longer about Gaza and its siege anymore, but the entirety of Palestine and its collectives regardless of which side of the Israeli "separation wall" they live on." ca 18/7/2014

Intolerance becoming all too common in IsraelMazal Mualem - Al-Monitor - Ben-Ari, who`s on the far right of the political spectrum, is constantly expanding his list of targets. In fact, he now calls for shipping the chairwoman of Zionist Meretz, Knesset member Zehava Gal-On, to Gaza. At the same time, he lashes out and curses, fouling the mood and further exacerbating the existing tensions between right and left over Operation Protective Edge.-rh 16/7/2014
No Exit from Gaza: A New War Crime?Richard Falk - The Palestine Chronicle - The entrapment of the Gazan population within closed borders is part of a deliberate Israeli pattern of prolonged collective punishment that has for the past several years been imposed on Gaza. This amounts to a grave breach of Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which qualifies as a potential Crime Against Humanity.-rh16/7/2014
