Thanks to you, and this Palestinian blogger for bringing this video and situation to the mainstream. Why doesn't this make it to CNN or BBC? Every
person on every corner of this fragile planet deserves to see this, and truly learn from it.
I suppose there will always be acts of hate and agression between races and cultures. I suppose we will never truly end war. However, I am shocked
today at the hypocritical ideals of this latest Israeli agression. Is this a measured response to rudimentary rocket attacks; of which stem from
frustrations arisen from exile, starvation, and military blockade. No....this is not the religious ideology, 'eye for an eye'. This, is Genocide;
pure and simple.
In this information age, where we have access to as much world events as one can process, there is no excuse for this. We know all the historical
precedents for situations like this, and yet people are ALLOWED to be butchered and murdered, not just in plain site, but WITH THE WORLD WATCHING!
Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Zaire, Russia, Germany, China etc. etc. Why on earth can we not learn from history?
The United Nations as well as most of the civilized world say that they 'condemn' this Israeli action. And yet it STILL goes on! The United Nation
comes to an overall consensus to publicly condemn Israel, and yet an official press statement is NOT allowed because the United States vetoes that
action in favor of condemning Hamas and blaming them for all of this.
Well...I wonder who Hamas actually is. Do the Israelis really know. Are they rolling into Gaza with one of the world most technologically advanced
militaries, and simply engaging any combatants that stand against them. Personally, that could make anyone in Gaza a potential member of Hamas. And
if they aren't a member of Hamas, they soon will be. When a more or less sovereign territory such as Gaza is invaded, the residents will do all they
can to protect and defend what life and liberty they have left. In doing so, the Israeli government will turn this into a plausible alibi for why
they are invading in the first place.
I am truly sickened by this. Please everyone. Spread the word.
