On the third day of Israel's civilian bombing campaign of the Gaza strip, 350 Palestinians are killed, over a thousand wounded, and the death toll is expected to rise substantially; we get a first-hand description of a major hospital in Gaza right after the first rounds of bombing and we'll hear from human rights activists, reporters and bloggers on the ground in Gaza, talking about the extent of the damage so far; we'll also have a report on an emergency action called in downtown San Francisco by the Palestinian community registering their outrage at the continued ethnic cleansing; and Ali Abunimah joins us for in-depth analysis of the current crisis.
