On the afternoon of Nov. 21, 2012, Peace & Justice activists staged a demonstration in front of the White House. Four of them shared their views with this reporter. They demanded “mercy for the children of Gaza!” Inside the White House, the annual ritual of the President issuing a pre-Thanksgiving Day pardon, in the Rose Garden, for two turkeys was supposedly taking place.
To date in the Gazans/Israeli clash, 150 Palestinians have been killed, including 37 children and over 1,180 wounded. The Israeli death toll stands at five, with 94 wounded.
