There have been at least 23 Palestinian deaths and 73 injuries, mostly civilian, in the latest Israeli assault on Gaza, all for bogus strategic and political motives. And the U.S. is complicit here: A new policy paper published by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation documents, over the last decade, the sale to Israel of 670 million U.S. weapons, rounds of ammunition and other equipment, including almost 600,000 tear gas canisters.
