They have tasty rabbits in Gaza

Isn't the "free press" wonderful? Whereas a real free press would be screaming out in anger at the illegal blockade of Gaza, we have today's 'Independent' writing, ".... rabbits have become an unlikely siege-beating lifeline for some of the poorest families in Gaza. Relatively cheap to feed and famously reproductive, the fluffy creatures are helping families like the Motawes to survive the desperate shortage of income – and nutritious food – imposed by the economic collapse of a Gaza under blockade."

Of course, this is drivel of the worse sort and we have our "mainstream" readers sitting in the comfort of their homes thinking, "ah, well at least they have rabbits to eat and rabbits are, after all, quite tasty." If the mainstream press cannot get the message accross, I will make a, no doubt, forlorn attempt to do so; the blockade of Gaza, is a disgrace, it is not only immoral, it is illegal.

The American media is obviously biased to the interest of the elite, and this is no different. Since Israel plays a major role in US imperialism, I'm sure the US will do whatever it can to prevent public opinion from being swayed against it, because once the American people demand that the US stop supporting Israel and all of its illegal activities, the US will have no choice but to do the will of the people, and that will be a major blow to US imperial interests in the Middle East.

In the meantime, I feel very sorry for the Palestinians who are suffering under this illegal siege and illegal occupation.
