Gaza: The Contemporary "Concentration Camp"

The Pope described Gaza as a contemporary concentration camp. Israel has restricted necessary supplies to Gaza since their attacks 18 months ago, which left many Gazan families without basic shelter, medical supplies, sanitation, and food.

Israel is becoming that which it sought to resist--racist, authoritarian, repressive, genocidal.

To argue that Israel is becoming racist and genocidal is not to excuse Palestinian terrorism.

However, Israel's actions are disproportionate and have the effect of producing the terroristic backlash they seek to eliminate.

The recent Israel murder of citizens in the aid flotilla proves the point that Israel is moving to the dark side through actions that are repressive, lethal, and disproportionate.

The Israeli dream is threatened from within by these actions.
