A second wave of bombers came half an hour later, and the gunfire began again and woke her up. She did not stir from bed, being very tired. She lay and listened to the raid for nearly an hour, and presently dozed off again, accustomed to the noise. She woke to the shrill scream of the bomb that hit the house next door, an instant before it burst. She had no time to do anything, hardly time to realise what the noise denoted, before the appalling thing happened. Her bed was lifted bodily up into the air and slammed down again upon the floor, and a great pressure blast came on her that made her cry out with the pain in her ears. Then, as she watched, the solid wall at the end of her room split and crumbled and dissolved in shreds of plaster, and was gone, and a thick, choking cloud of dust was over everything that made her gasp for breath. She lay petrified with fright in bed; then something happened to the roof above her. A half-ton coping stone came crashing through the ceiling and fell down on to the lower half of the bed. The bed collapsed down on to the floor and she lay pinned there, stunned with the shock and with the pain in both her legs....... She saw him faintly in the starlit darkness, through the fog of dust. He was a very dirty man, in a tin hat and a blue boilersuit, with an armlet bearing the letters A.F.S. He was a man of about fifty, still lean and athletic. He said: ‘This floor isn’t quite what it might be. Come on lady. Let‘s get out of this toot sweet.’ She said: ‘I can’t move, I’m afraid. I think both my legs are broken. Look.’ He switched on an electric torch and examined the wreck of her bed. He tested the weight of the coping stone with his hands: it was utterly beyond his power to shift it. In three weeks of intensive raids this man had learned a great deal, had amassed a sad store of experience. He knew that there was only one thing that would save this girl. A doctor must come up, alone, because the floor would bear no more than one, and amputate both legs where she lay. And he must do it quickly.
As Thanksgiving 2000 approached, the justices and their clerks planned their vacations and scattered, leaving a skeletal staff — generally only one of the three or four clerks assigned to each chamber — behind in case the impossible happened There was just no way, Justice Stephen Breyer remarked over the holiday, that the Court would ever get involved How the US Supreme court stopped the ballots in Florida from being countedBush v.

Unspeakable grief and horror

Nanci Pelosi — U.S. House Democratic leader — Congresswoman California, 8th District Speaking at the AIPAC agenda May 26, 2005 There are those who contend that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is all about Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. This is absolute nonsense. In truth, the history of the conflict is not over occupation, and never has been: it is over the fundamental right of Israel to exist. The greatest threat to Israel's right to exist, with the prospect of devastating violence, now comes from Iran. For too long, leaders of both political parties in the United States have not done nearly enough to confront the Russians and the Chinese, who have supplied Iran as it has plowed ahead with its nuclear and missile technology.... In the words of Isaiah, we will make ourselves to Israel 'as hiding places from the winds and shelters from the tempests; as rivers of water in dry places; as shadows of a great rock in a weary land.'
The United States will stand with Israel now and forever. Now and forever.

What the army used here yesterday was not tear gasIsrael, chemical weapons and phosphorous bombs New and unknown deadly weapons used by Israeli forces Undetectable poison-needle gun for 'clean' assassinations
We know what tear gas is, what it feels like
That was something totally different… Israel's soldiers are not going to march into Gaza and truck all the inhabitants away.
The strategy is simply to make the place into a garbage dump picked over by destitute people. The typhoid poisoning of Palestinian wells and water supplies in 1948 The conversion of F-16s into nerve gas ‘crop dusters’ in 1998
