The first round up I produced about the current situation in Gaza can be located here. Part two can be found beneath this. As always I will do my best to try and update this as possible throughout the day. If you have posts that you think should be included email them to talktojack-now-at-sbcglobal-dot-net or let me know in the comments.
FYI- I gather these links from a variety of places. In some cases I am tipped off via email and sometimes through the blogs I am visiting. I do my best to try and provide credit where it is due. My apologies for any credit that I miss giving out.
We’ll start out with some links to stories in the MSM:
CNN reports that Israel is in an all out war with Hamas. There are a number of blogs linking to this story moaning over support for Israel’s actions. As always I’d like to see what they would say if their next door neighbors spent all day throwing bricks at their homes.
The Washington Post reports that Israel is pounding targets in Gaza. Nice to see that some people keep repeating the “we may not like it, but Hamas is the legally elected government so we have to deal with them line.” They are being dealt with in the appropriate manner. You don’t hold hands with people who are trying to kill you.
The Grey Lady wrote about Arab Anger. Great, show your anger with Hamas and then let’s see what happens.
Surprise, surprise, the protests have started.
Spiegel Online reports that German Chancellor Angela Merkel blames Hamas for the current violence.
In the blogosphere we have a collection of posts that are worth reading. Take a look at:
