Defending the Indefensible

Abby Zimet

Israel's attack on the Gaza flotilla in international waters - and its
equally obscene, absurd attempt to justify it - horrifies, enrages, proves
finally that, in Israeli Bradley Burston's words, "We are no longer capable of stopping

"We will not stop. We
will go again." - a Twitter from the flotilla via Free Gaza.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
