Obama And Netanyahu Are Authors of "Blood, Destruction, Pain, Grief And Sadness”

It's all smiles amongst the baby killers. 

An excerpt from, "Netanyahu Presses for Disarming of Gaza, Says War Could Drag On" by Saud Abu Ramadan, Jonathan Ferziger and Calev Ben-David, Bloomberg, July 29, 2014:
Yesterday, streets were almost empty in Gaza City, the territory’s biggest urban area, as people visited fresh graves, bouquets of flowers in hand, paid hospital calls on family and friends wounded in the fighting, and surveyed the damage done by the Israeli strikes. The Eid is usually the best season for business in Gaza, yet this year, many shops were closed.

“This isn’t Eid, it’s the worst Eid I’ve seen in all my life,” said Mohamed al-Ejla, a 45-year-old father of seven. “I still remember the Eid when I was young, it was full of happiness and we enjoyed it. But this Eid is full of blood, destruction, pain, grief and sadness.” 

While the military operation has barely affected Israel’s markets, the Bank of Israel cited the conflict in its surprise rate cut yesterday, though it said it was too early to tell the economic effects of the security situation.
