Beginning mid-day on Saturday, December 27, waves of U.S.-supplied Israeli
warplanes suddenly appeared over the skies of the Palestinian territory of Gaza in
broad daylight and unleashed a deadly barrage of bomb and missile attacks that
continue as we go to press. This could not be taking place without the approval of the
U.S., for whom Israel serves as an enforcer in the Middle East. The U.S.-supplied Israeli
F-16 warplanes and Apache helicopters attacked all of Gaza's main towns, including
Gaza City, Khan Younis and Rafah, striking more than 210 targets in the first 24 hours
of what Israel threatens will be "war to the bitter end." Police stations-located in the
middle of civilian areas-government offices, the Islamic University, and many other sites
were hit. By Sunday, over 300 had been killed-including many civilians and an
estimated 700 wounded. It was the most Palestinians killed in a single day in decades.
Israel's massacre and its ongoing crimes against the people of Gaza could not have
happened without U.S. support-and people living in the U.S. have the responsibility to
oppose the crimes of "our" government. Protests have erupted across the Middle East,
and there have also been protests (with more planned) in the U.S. and Europe. There
needs to be massive, visible political opposition to the U.S.-sponsored assault on Gaza,
here, and now. Silence and acquiescence to these crimes in any form is complicity. The
world needs to see that within the U.S., there are people who are not going along with
the crimes being sponsored by their government.
