Subject: RE: BS: New Israeli atrocity: attack on Gaza aid
As Emma B rightly points out - the Israeli-Palestine question is a complicated one, far too complicated to be satisfactorily disscussed here - certainly by me.
What is not in question is Israel's brutal behavior; the act of piracy, the slaughter of refugees, the use of weapons, chemical or otherwise, on civilians, the destruction of homes, hospitals and schools, the open attempts at humiliation and persecution of the ordinary citizens of Gaza, the failure of the Israelis to meet the basic standards of conflict agreed upon so that humanity does not descend into bestiality and its refusal to even participate, never mind adher to the findings of the UN Human Rights Committee investgation.
That issue is ongoing, with more examples every day - stories that could have been ripped out of the pages of Martin Gilbert's oral history, 'Holocaust', the parellels are so obvious.
It is this that the Israeli apologists have totally failed to address and continue to ignore - their deafening silence says it all far more eloquently than any of us possibly could.
