Adding Insult to Injury

Amnesty International has accused Israel of commiting war crimes in Gaza and the reaction in Israel is that, which we have come to expect from the Zionist state; the usual denial, the usual “nobody listens to Amnesty”, the usual accusations of anti-semitism. Quite simply, the evidence does more than suggest that there were war crimes, the evidence is overpowering, it is captured on film, it is documented and it is available for all and sundry to see, furthermore, people do listen to Amnesty when it comes to human rights, Amnesty does not point the finger only at Israel, it points the finger at anyone, anywhere, who abuses human rights and, finally, Amnesty International has many Jewish members, it works for human rights, regardless of ethnicity. Nevertheless, what are we confronted with? Once again we are confronted with the usual drivel from Israel when they are accused by anyone, even by human rights organisations within Israel itself. Drivel, which ranges from, “the other side committed crimes too”, to a disgusting denial of the crimes committed; a denial, which adds insult to injury, a denial that is an affront, an insult, to all of us but is a particular insult to those innocent men, women and children who were slaughtered. When will the world wake up?

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.
