Since July 8, Israel has been pounding the nearly two million Palestinian people locked down in the tiny, densely populated Gaza Strip with thousands of attacks by fighter jets, helicopters, missiles, tanks, warships, and drones. Over 500 Palestinians have been killed including many children, people living at a center for severely disabled people, and whole families. On July 17 Israel escalated the slaughter with a ground invasion. These are war crimes backed by the U.S.
 
 
Join us Friday to dig into the reality of this situation, including the role of the U.S. which provides massive backing to Israel, and what the people must do now.
