  1. Dear BFP,
    Is it possible to make such timely, podcasts available to all in the hopes of saving lives through information?

  2. Done. Open to all.

  3. Thanks for this enlightening podcast. This horrific mass slaughter and occupation of Palestine that has been going on for 47 years needs to be stopped. I thought your comparison to US slaughter of the native Americans was so telling given the role America plays in this current holocaust. Although I have followed the Palestine issue for many years, I learned much from your podcast–such as the fact that Hamas came into existence through Israel’s intelligence agents. I was unaware of this. I also thought your description of the density of the population inside Gaza made the situation much clearer. I find it unbelievable that the world seems to turn a blind eye to what is going on or the part the US plays in it. For a long time it puzzled me how Jews, of all people, could commit such crimes. I remember back in early 90’s having a heated discussion with my then boss who was Jewish and who defended the killings. She lives here and it made me think all or at least most Jews thought it a justifiable situation. I know now that Zionist have to be separated from the Jewish population and religion as a whole. Just like I think most Americans do not believe what our Govt is doing in other countries is right. So much of the suffering that is going on world wide is caused by the US empire. It makes me feel ashamed to be American. Of course Israel and the US are not the first to commit such heinous crimes. It makes one ponder whether mankind is primarily a vicious animal. One would like to think we have become civilized but what is going on today has been going on throughout the ages. Where is the compassion? Where is the empathy? When will man’s inhumanity to man STOP?
