"Racism is not dead, but it is on life support -- kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as racists." -- Thomas Sowell

Israel intensified airstrikes in Rafah on Wednesday as Israeli officials are threatening to invade the city, which is packed with an estimated 1.5 million Palestinians.

Reuters reported that the Israeli bombardment in Rafah killed over a dozen members of the al-Noor family, including a one-and-a-half-year-old girl. At the site of the bombed house, Palestinians criticized the US for vetoing a ceasefire resolution at the UN Security Council and for its support of the Israeli onslaught.

“Since October 7 and until this moment, the US has been supporting Israel with rockets, aircraft and tanks. All of these massacres are because of America,” said  Youssef Sheikh Al-Eid, whose brother was inside the targeted house, according to Reuters.

Gaza’s Health Ministry said a total of 118 Palestinians were killed in Gaza from February 20-21, bringing the total death toll up to 29,313, with 69,333 others wounded. About two-thirds of the casualties are women and children.

Claire's Observations:  It appears to me that Israel's 10 March Deadline/Ultimatum on the return of Israeli hostages, and surrender of Hamas, to stop further genocide in Rafah,  may well have been moved up by Israeli and Military officials.  This date is now just 17 days away; but I wouldn't hold my breath, that Israel won't start a major offensive before that, in an attempt to throw Hamas off-kilter.
