As President Obama spoke in Egypt yesterday, children in Gaza came to the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt to demand an end to the U.S.-backed Israeli siege. Just last week, the United Nations reported that 30 percent of children three-years-old and younger now suffer from anemia. The widely reported deaths of one-year-old Odai Samir Abu Azzoum and 10-year-old Ribhi Jindiyeh due to lack of medical supplies and services in Gaza are just two of many children who suffer because of the siege.
