Israeli officials claim that "there is no humanitarian crisis," citing the fact that they re-opened the border crossings today to allow humanitarian supplies to enter Gaza.

To which Christopher Gunness, a spokesman for UNRWA - the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees - responded:

"When women, children and babies are killed in Gaza, how can you say Gaza is not in a humanitarian crisis? When hospitals are overwhelmed with patients, how can you not say Gaza is not in a humanitarian crisis? When bakeries are shut down, how can you say Gaza is not in humanitarian crisis?"

WITH ALLIES LIKE ISRAEL, WHO NEEDS ENEMIES? I'm sorry man, but I am up to my eyeballs with this asshole murdering outfit. We are trying to learn how to run a humanitarian planet!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
