Posted in Palestine and the Middle East

Indict Barak, Omert and Livni

The larger part of the day has been spent walking around what is a rather pretty city, no time to catch up with the “real” news and there was me supping my coffee and eating my burger and chips in ‘Flaherty’s, getting bored watching Bolton Wanderers Vs Manchester United, Seville has more to offer, the sun had its hat on and with the temperature between fourteen and eighteen degrees it was walking, walking walking.
In Seville you can get the latest foreign language press early in the morning and I did manage to catch a similar headline in the ‘Economist’ and in the ‘International Herald Tribune’. The front cover the ‘Economist’ just simply asks the question, “war crimes in Gaza? The article can be read online and the reference has been given below. The ‘International Herald Tribune’ on the other hand has a headline that suggests that both “parties” might be guilty of war crimes. Now, the fact that the mainstream press is bringing up this topic can only be welcomed and who knows we might yet see Ehud, Ehud and Tzipi being indicted for their crimes against humanity. Nevertheless, we should for the benefit of the readers of the ‘Herald Tribune’, at least, get a couple of facts straight. Firstly, on the one hand, ‘Hamas’ has being designated a terrorist organisation by the United States, the EU and, of course, by the zany Zionists. Now, wouldn’t war crimes just be sort of par for the course for a terrorist organisation? On the other hand the IDF is a regular army and regular armies just don’t kill women and children, do they? Secondly, during the present conflict in Gaza, how many women and children have ‘Hamas’ killed and how many have the Israelis killed?
It is time for the world to wake up. The evidence would seem to suggest that the mainstream press can no longer completely ignore the facts. That, at least, should offer us some hope.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
