The number of displaced persons in Gaza doubled in one day and more than 25,000 Palestinians moved into UNRWA schools only on July 18, 2014. The number of displaced Palestinians seeking shelter in UNRWA schools in Gaza has now equaled the peak number from the 2008/9 conflict, and exceeds 50,000 in 44 schools. UNRWA is now warning that its funds and supplies are running critically low. (www.unrwa.org/donate)

As death toll climbs to 343 on the 12th day of the Israeli assault on Gaza, “at least 73 Palestinian children have been reported killed as a result of airstrikes and shelling by Israeli aerial, naval and ground forces” UNICEF’s Catherine Weibel told AFP. She said the youngest was reportedly three months old and more than half of the children killed are under the age of 12.

You’d never see this side of Mexico in the media

The images pieced together in the news — of corruption, poverty, violence and crime — are grim, but they don’t capture the full, textured reality of life in Mexico. As there are approximately 33.7 million Mexican-Americans living in the United States today, it is worth thinking more about what the country looks like beyond the headlines.

THE KILLING SEASON 4 TRAILER

Netflix has revived the twice canceled- twice renewed AMC series and breathed even more brooding life into it. Detectives Holder and Linden (my favorite investigative partnership since Mulder and Scully) are back in business in this season 4 trailer, but it seems that both characters are keeping a deep, dark and deadly secret. Very intriguing! The Killing premieres on Netflix in August.

A Border Patrol agent reads the birth certificate of Alejandro, 8 — the only thing he brought with him as he and others crossed the Rio Grande near McAllen recently. Alejandro is one of more than 52,000 minors traveling without parents who’ve been caught crossing the border illegally since October. Seventy-five years ago, the St. Louis, a German trans-Atlantic liner carrying 938 Jewish refugees, was turned away from the United States and forced to return to Europe. U.S. law didn’t allow them sanctuary.  Writes author and former Dallas Morning News reporter Christine Wicker: “The St. Louis is famous now as a failure of compassion that haunts American history. Today we are preparing to send 45,000 children back to Central American countries controlled by drug cartels that routinely torture, rape and kill children who refuse to work for them. So routinely are children menaced that their families sent them away, alone, across thousands of miles on just the slimmest of hopes that they might be safe. U.S. law doesn’t allow them sanctuary.  “They walked through some of the most hostile, hot, barren, dangerous country in the world. They were sent by poor families so terrified for their safety that they paid many thousands of dollars and entrusted their children to criminals hoping they might arrive in America and be safe. “Our hearts are not touched by these children. We want the law enforced. This is our country. Ours. And we don’t have to share it. Not now. Not 75 years ago. “Yes, these are children whom we’ll send back to be raped, maimed and killed. They aren’t our children. Our children are precious.”

I want to know how you can lack compassion for children?! I want to know what twists your humanity to the point where you can’t value our most innocent?! I want to know how you can be so disturbed as to deny basic rights to children?
