Gaza, Day 18

My friend Hannah in Palestine sent another update today. She pointed out how 935 Gazans killed would translate into 200,000 Americans proportionally to total population, of which 65,000 would be children. Can you imagine that kind of death toll in less than 3 weeks?
She spoke of the importance of continuing to raise our voices: “It is
important. It may not seem like it right now, but whenever this does
stop, it will be sooner for the protest. The people of Gaza cannot
afford our inaction.”
She recommends the following sites to learn more and take action: (after the jump)

Take action:

This is more long-term, but no better time than now to launch a
boycott campaign against Israel:
