Just a few days ago Obama was saying he couldn’t comment on the Israeli assault on Gaza because there is only “one President at a time”. Now that Obama is the President and Bush has departed from the White House, what is his excuse?
Why didn’t Obama honor the request of Father Manuel Musallam, the pastor of the Catholic parish in Gaza City?
We ask that you offer to God your most ardent prayers and that no Mass or religious service be celebrated without remembering before God the tragedy in Gaza.
Where was Gaza in the prayers that were said at the inauguration? How could we forget their suffering at this time of celebration for so many in the USA? Will the “first Black President of the United States” be only the latest in a series of Presidents that have unconditionally supported Israel’s undisrupted 60 year assault on the Palestinian people?
