Israel on Monday bombed the Islamic University and a government compound in Gaza City, key centers of Hamas power, in the third day of its aerial assault on the . Witnesses saw fire and smoke at the university, counting six separate airstrikes there just after midnight.Regardless of media reports, this is causing outrage among ordinary people. I saw that for myself yesterday on the demo.

Don't worry, there are sympathetic sites around the net and three of their guests or contributors, two of whom are self-styled leftists, have posts supporting what Israel is doing on Harry's Place here, here and here.
