Document the Atrocities

Photos from Gaza serve two very important purposes. They have provided evidence of Israeli use of white phosphorous on civilians, the bombing of hospitals and ambulances (not to mention mosques, government offices, houses, and the rest of the non-military infrastructure of Gaza which are not considered acceptable targets in war). But they also display and document the suffering of Palestinians. The fill the record so that when the United States wakes up from its slumber, its government and citizens will be able to look back on the suffering they had previously ignored. Here are some of the most important photos from Gaza:
