Welcome to another edition of updates on the War in Gaza. Due to the high value of spam and some of the comments I have turned on comment moderation. It appears that some of you would very much like me to engage in an act that is anatomically impossible.
Actually those comments are tame. Some of the other foaming at the mouth, hate filled screeds are almost comical. Anyhoo, we can smile and blow kisses at the blowhards later. Suffice it to say that periodically I let a few of the monkeys escape from the cage so that everyone gets to see what they have to offer.
And now we’ll head off to the next round up of news and information about the war in Gaza.
