Altnews editor’s comment: The biggest and most unfathomable mystery to me is how otherwise apparently decent people and their politicians and governments completely turn a blind eye to what, to me, appear to be the most despicable crimes against humanity ever committed by a (self proclaimed) democracy.

But one would be hard pressed to find any serious media coverage of the fact that, despite the overwhelmingly harsh conditions that Israel has inflicted on the Gaza Strip, it still routinely delivers sophisticated bombs to maximize the suffering.
The United States is not a passive player in this particular conflict, which shows no signs of de-conflicting in the near future.
