Massacre in Gaza

I received the following email a few moments ago. Maria Khoury is the wife of an Orthodox priest who serves in the Holy Lad where they both live.   Many of you have most likely heard on American broadcast media about the Israeli attack.  You have heard one side.  Read directly from the battleground.
