update

The war started 20 days ago and so far more than 1066 Palestinians have been killed including 355 children! 😦 Today the Israelis have been indescriminatly bombarding the Gaza City. A UN compound and a hospital were hit by the bombardment.

Aisha al-Najjar,3,was killed by the Israelis yesterday! She died minutes after this picture was taken!

Check out this new poll that was taken in the US:

WASHINGTON — Forty-four percent of Americans support Israel’s use of force in the Gaza Strip, while only 18 percent considered Hamas’ use of force appropriate, according to a new McClatchy/Ipsos poll. Fifty-seven percent think that Hamas is using excessive force, while only 36 percent said Israel is.

When it comes to who’s to blame for the latest Middle East crisis, Americans blame Hamas hands down.

44% of Americans think that the killing of all of those people is appropriate! The media they are listening to is to blame for that. The media and the politicians in the US are major participants with Israel on its crime against our people in Gaza.

I wish those Americans read the following letter posted by the Guardian:

We the undersigned are all of Jewish origin. When we see the dead and bloodied bodies of young children, the cutting off of water, electricity and food, we are reminded of the siege of the Warsaw Ghetto. When Dov Weisglass, an adviser to the Israeli prime minister, Ehud Olmert, talked of putting Gazans “on a diet” and the deputy defence minister, Matan Vilnai, talked about the Palestinians experiencing “a bigger shoah” (holocaust), this reminds us of Governor General Hans Frank in Nazi-occupied Poland, who spoke of “death by hunger”.

The real reason for the attack on Gaza is that Israel is only willing to deal with Palestinian quislings. The main crime of Hamas is not terrorism but its refusal to accept becoming a pawn in the hands of the Israeli occupation regime in Palestine.

The decision last month by the EU council to upgrade relations with Israel, without any specific conditions on human rights, has encouraged further Israeli aggression. The time for appeasing Israel is long past. As a first step, Britain must withdraw the British ambassador to Israel and, as with apartheid South Africa, embark on a programme of boycott, divestment and sanctions.
