Over at Harry’s Place the Gaza situation preoccupies. Most commentators are predictably pro-Israel however there are also some photos of one of the London demos which have been curiously under-reported in the mainstream media.Gordon Brown too is now calling for a ceasefire and has commented how Israel’s actions are making an unstable region even more dangerous.  I want to turn to something HP just before New Year though. David T slipped in this story about what happened to Hicham Yezza.

Yezza was held for six days on tenous anti-terror grounds after printing off an Quaida material from the web on a Nottingham University printer for his mate’s dissertation who was out of printer credit. Now he faces deportation on immigration grounds.

David has filed his story under the “Do something” tag. Take heed!
