Please, I need your help regarding the Palestinian civilian

population. I am a rather poor shmuck living on SS. But if I can donate $10 to the ACLU, then $5 per month for helping those people in such a terrible situation won't make me much poorer. I don't want that money to go to Hamas, but rather to a humanitarian charity helping the people in Gaza. Does anyone know such a group? This way I demonstrate in a miniscule way my disgust at our governments continual support of Israel's actions as well as perhaps helping just one devastated family over there.

I used to support Israel very much until Sharon got in. After his actions I became very critical; by now I am disgusted by the actions of the Israeli government. Just one American citizen trying to help the "prisoners".

So, if anyone here knows of such a charity, please, let me know.

Thank you

You see, I cannot just sit here and complain, I have to take the walk, outside of the talk.
Thanks again
