DEBKAfile said Israel's ground operation was planned for Sunday. It's now delayed one or two days. It's unclear whether Cairo talks will resolve things. According to Hamas, they failed.

From Bangkok on his Asian tour, Obama said:

"We are fully supportive of Israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. And we will continue to support Israel's right to defend itself."

He ignored Gaza's siege, Israel's overall occupation harshness, and that Palestinian rockets and missiles respond defensively to Israeli attacks.

Washington supports Israel's worst crimes. Palestinian rights don't matter. They never did and don't now. Israeli aggression is called self-defense. Gazans are accused of terrorism for defending themselves.

Relentless Israeli attacks continue. Civilians remain most vulnerable. Electronic Intifada (EI) contributor Rami Almeghari lives and teaches in Gaza. He said "Gaza families huddle together." They hope doing so provides a measure of safety.

Fifteen Dalloul family members sleep in one room. They live in Gaza City's densely populated al-Zaytoun neighborhood.

Naeema Dalloul, a mother of seven, told EI:

"All the children and elder members of our family squeeze onto these mattresses when night falls."

"When the air strikes began on Wednesday I was on the phone with my husband, who is now traveling. I was concerned about my seven children, so I moved here to stay with them."

"But as you see the attacks are widespread and no one seems safe."

Israel has been heavily bombing al-Zaytoun. Other civilian neighborhoods are struck. Israel claims only militants are targeted. Israeli officials lie.

Days are terrifying. Nights are worse. Naeema added:

" My little four-year old daughter, Tala, just hides behind me whenever there is a loud Israeli airstrike heard in the background."

"This time is rather scary and no one can predict how things will turn out. But we are trying to cope as best as we can."
