As the violence in Gaza escalates - at least 46 Palestinians dead, including eight children, and over 400 injured, about half women and children - stories and photos emerge.

Israel's crimes, notes one observer, are "further reminders of what happens when eliminationist settler-colonialism hits the will of a people which refuse to die."
