My country of the United States, which sends 3 billion in military aid every year to Israel, fails to use any leverage to get the state of Israel to move away from Gestapo-like tactics since  the recent murders of many in and out of Gaza over the past month, including the siblings of Amar Sharrub, whose story is outlined as follows:

Two weeks ago Friday, Amar Sharrub’s “dad and two brothers were fleeing their village when their vehicle came under Israeli fire. His brother, twenty-eight-year-old Kassab, died in a hail of bullets, trying to flee the vehicle. His other brother, eighteen years old, Ibrahim, survived the initial attack, but Israeli troops refused to allow an ambulance to reach him and his father until twenty hours later. By then, it was too late. Ibrahim had bled to death in front of his father.”

The entire detailed story can be heard on last Thursday’s DEMOCRACY NOW.  As the father was contacted by Al-Jazeera by cell-phone just moments before the second son died, much of the Arab world has the story.

So far, no Israeli officer has been arrested, although the events are nearly ten days old and despite the fact that both Palestinian and Israeli witnesses were on site.
