This is the type of story that makes me want to scream in fury, beat a tabletop, weep and curse in frustration.
For those not up to playing “follow the link”, it’s a piece about three boys – aged 6-9 – who were gunned down in Gaza City today as they prepared to go from car to school. It was a “send a message killing”. The boys were all sons of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ chief intelligence aide. Abbas/aide are members of the moderate Fatah faction. Gee, I wonder what faction could have been behind the murders?
It is mind boggling. It is wrong. And so overwhelming it hurts to contemplate.
