Jim is absolutely correct. The attack on Gaza was a war crime in all its aspects.
The slaughter of around 2000 people..at least 400 children...hundreds of women some of whom were pregnant and the wounding of around 9000 others is a war crime.
The horrific wounds were caused by blast injuries, shrapnel, crush wounds and fire.
The IDF stands revealed as an army of highly trained child killers cheered on by rabid crowds of right wing young Zionists!
Hospitals, clinics, UN Schools and whole apartment blocks and neighbourhoods in Gaza were blown up.
A city of nearly 2 million now has no water and no sewage plants ...around half a million people are homeless.The power station was blown up by Israeli bombs.
Farms and orchards on the edge of Gaza have been destroyed by shelling, tanks and bulldozers.Unexploded bombs and shells litter the ruined city.Gaza's main bomb disposal expert was killed just a few days by one such shell.
But it is important to remember that Gaza itself is a refugee city. Its residents were refugees from what is now Israel driven out at the point of a gun.Or they are the children or grandchildren of the original refugees. The city which we have seen destroyed was built on top of sand dunes by these people.
The Palestinians have a right to resist the occupation of their homeland and the murder of its people.
On the occupied West Bank huge numbers of Palestinian men have been imprisoned at one time or another by the occupying state. Thousands of homes have been bulldozered and land stolen.
Although many politicians in the West continue to support Israel this murderous terrorist state has been rumbled as the huge pro Palestinian demonstrations across the world has shown.
