Quote of the Day...

If every time the IRA killed a British soldier, 100 Catholics were killed on the Falls Road, people would think it was outrageous.
Martin Linton MP, commenting on BBC TV on news that 400 Palestinians were killed in hostilities in the past week, compared to just four Israelis who died during the same period.

Meanwhile, Palestinian civilians continue to suffer most in what is now all-out war. After a week of Israeli air-strikes, some 50 Palestinians were reported killed today in the first day of the Israeli ground offensive, including five people apparently bombed in an Israeli attack on a market area in Gaza's shopping precinct.

UPDATE: from the American newswire Associated Press

is 'military precision' why the Israelis killed five people from the same family yesterday who were out shopping in a vegetable market...or why they destroyed a school??

don't get the right wing extremist connection Geoffrey, but if the cap fits...
