Israel Threatens to Shell Hospitals

One never knows who's at the end of a cruel robocall. This time it was Israel calling a besieged hospital, something George W. Bush found difficult to do after Hurricane Katrina. News reports stated:

The Al-Wafa Hospital eastern Gaza Strip received warning that they would be shelled, but the hospital administration and staff refused to evacuate on account of the number of injured people being treated there. Some of the wounded have been injured so severely that they cannot be safely transferred.

Shelling hospitals? Bush told Israel to avoid civilian casualties (wink, wink) and Obama stands silent on Day 10. Sad...
