Subject: RE: BS: New Israeli atrocity: attack on Gaza aid
"Sometimes we have to look into our own back yards before we start pointing fingers at our neighbours down the street. "
Yes I agree.
The British and American Government, our governments, are sitting in our back yard giiving tacit support to a campaign of repression and violence in Gaza, a place described by Gerald Kaufman (a friend of Golda Meyer and Tsipi Livni) as being comparable to the Warsaw Ghetto.
"The Israelis said that the aid on that convoy would be delivered if landed at a regular port."
What about the medical and dental surgeries on board the ships designed to give Gazan's access to a doctor or dentist?
How exactly were they meant to deliver these things without the ships going too?
And how about the Aid workers?
The majority of Aid to Gaza has been smuggled in. The UN and all the main Aid agencies all contradict the Israeli claim that they are allowing enough aid in.
In fact they all support a view that Israel is starving Gazans of the things they need to survive.
"and I have no interest in discussing the legality of the war or Israel's existence for the umpteen zillionith time"
Well you are the only person to bring these issues into the discussion, so if you could try and stick to the point that would be appreciated.
