Caught in the Middle: Young Hearts and Minds

Abby Zimet

Gaza's 700,000 children have been caught in an
unconscionable tug of war between competing summer camps run by Hamas
and the U.N., with gunmen
for the second time burning the U.N. camp and slashing its plastic swimming pools in the zealous name of preventing kids from being kids.
Sad, sad, sad.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
