    Had the killed and injured been Israelis I have no doubt but that condemnation would have come from the White House and the State Department. But when the killed and injured are Palestinians the silence is deafening and telling. Jewish lives are worthwhile. Palestinian lives mean nothing. Several of the dead and injured live in Gaza. Should Gaza retaliate by once again shooting their puny rockets at Israel the Israeli government, backed by the US and the UK, would declare that Gaza broke the ceasefire and that they were to blame. No one would examine the truth. Israel is continually breaking the cease fire with Gaza while killing or almost daily killing or injuring Palestinians in the West Bank. The occupation has bred an army that cares nothing for human life unless it is Jewish Israeli life. How lamentable.
