Gaza: has the genocide begun?

No. It began sixty years ago. Google Gaza, see what happens. Any mention of a humanitarian disaster? Not today. Maybe clicking on that link months or years from now it will indeed say "humanitarian disaster" in the headlines. But how many have to die preventable deaths between now and then? Anyway there have been many email alerts flying around about the humanitarian disaster that is Gaza right now.

A look at the mainstream headlines suggests that there is an urgent situation in Gaza. Yes, they hedge their reports on the crisis befalling Gaza right now and you have to cut through a lot of non sequiturs about "rockets" and Sderot to understand that between Egypt and Israel, the Palestinian people of Gaza are being starved while western governments and media look on.

I don't know anything about this Free Gaza site but it is worth reading this.
