To read that in the US somewhere between 51 and 57% of Americans support Israel in this current onslaught of violence in the Gaza strip, and even worse, only 14% "sympathize with the Palestinians is pretty shocking as I sit here in Xico, in our colonia. I haven't spoken directly to my neighbors about this, but I am pretty sure the most of the sympathy lies with the Palestinians. The support is not strident. In newspapers horror at the terrible destruction of lives and landscape dominates, and not just in La Jornada. This is a link from today's Jornada of an Israeli attack that hit a street where two ambulances had arrived to rescue victims. It is very graphic. Maybe you all should watch it, but beware, nothing is hidden from you.
