US officials visit Gaza
whats-left-to-cut
In what is certainly a hopeful turn of events, Senator John Kerry and Reps Keith Ellison and Brian Baird visited Gaza last week, the first US government officials to do so in more than three years. The three were by all accounts absolutely shocked by the devastation that they witnessed, and Reps Ellison and Baird, at least, have issued very strong statements. Rep. Baird’s statement is printed below.
He writes, for instance: “what went on here, and what is continuing to go on, is shocking and troubling beyond words.”
In an extraordinary interview with the BBC [LISTEN TO IT HERE | BBC], Rep. Ellison describes his impression in terms strongly critical of Israel, reporting:
“Devastation. Devastation and destruction of facilities that to my mind were not legitimate military targets in any sense of the term, for example the American International School of Gaza was hit, and it is not in a crowded densely packed area, it is kind of out in the middle of a field almost, and it is hard to see how it represented any sort of threat to anyone.”

These are all very hopeful signs. The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation has put out an action alert asking (among other things) for people to thank Kerry, Baird and Ellison. [Article | EndTheOccupation.org]

As he fills out the entry form, the immigration officer asks him:
“Occupation?”
The Israeli promptly replies: “No, no, just visiting!”
