Pictures speak louder than words.
Although Israeli authorities have banned foreign journalists from entering Gaza, photos have been making their way out.
Mads Gilbert, a Norweigian civilian doctor working in Gaza despite the desperate shortage of medical supplies, has spoken of 'an attack on civilians'. These harrowing photos bear out Gilbert's claims.
Listen to Gilbert's comments on an AOL video here.
Save the Children says that a hundred or more children have been killed by the IDF in the course of this criminal campaign. Many more have been injured and are in need of medical treatment that is increasingly hard to come by as the crisis continues.
It should be clearly pointed out that the outrage over these killings is not restricted to those who are non-Jewish and non-Israeli. Many Jews have been deeply upset and angered by this. Today in Toronto a group of Jewish women staged a protest demanding an end to the violence.
These atrocities shame our common humanity.
