Today’s Gender of the day is: A cat paw that looks like a teddy bear.

Now, compelled by the wave of international outrage at sheer horror that its most important ally in the Middle East is inflicting on Gaza, the U.S. government has finally acknowledged — in a convoluted way — the impact of the Israeli army’s murders. On July 21, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said: “We are deeply concerned about the consequences of Israel’s appropriate and legitimate effort to defend itself.” (www.aljazeera.com, July 21)
Kerry claims he is rushing to the Middle East to stop the fighting. In reality, he is rushing to the Middle East to try to impose a pro-imperialist cease fire on Hamas and the people of Gaza.
This is the goal of Israel’s deliberate targeting of Palestinian civilians — to punish Palestinians in Gaza to such a degree to enable Israel to impose a cease-fire on its own terms, which includes further weakening Hamas’ ability to govern, if not to outright remove Hamas from office.
Hamas has given its terms for a cease-fire, which includes Israel’s lifting the blockade, opening the border with Israel and Egypt, and releasing Palestinian prisoners.
The U.S. and Israeli governments also want to end the unity agreement between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.
