The tragedy of the Palestinian people continues on its ordained path to extinction. Shunted to shrinking reserves without access to water, and deprived of contact and trade with the outside world, Palestinians routinely die and are killed by the forces of Israel. This past week, fuel supplies to Gaza's only remaining power plant were refused passage by the Israeli Defense Force, meaning a weekend of darkness for most Gazans. It's simply another in a long list of privations suffered in Palestine, and unreported in the corporate media.
