Where is Peace Corp? The Red Cross? Why hasn't this been brought up to the floor of the UN? If people can float flotilla devices to the Gaza, they would be better served to bring relief where it's really needed.

It is only a matter of time before the world hears of another famine taking place in Africa. Timely reminder of the words of Jesus when he says that even if we give a glass of water to the least of these my brothersl, you have done it unto me!
