PALESTINE - THE SUFFERING GOES ON
Israel just recently wiped out an extended Palestinian family of eighteen in the Gaza Strip, an unfortunate mistake they called it, meanwhile the Iraq debacle goes from bad to worse. I think that public opinion is at last beginning to understand that the Middle East is the most volatile place on earth with the potential to spill over into major warfare from which no - one will be spared. That slow understanding also shows signs of realising that the reason for this is the rogue state of Israel, hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees all over the world can still remember their homes, farms and villages which were taken by force by the Israeli terrorists. Like most Palestinians I would like to see a return to 1948 Palestine with Jews being accepted as fellow citizens of equal stature no matter where from. This now looks unattainable and a return to 1967 borders looks like the best solution, the Israelis however have shown that they can't be trusted to agree to that, despite the revulsion of the rest of the world ( excluding the USA ) and countless UN resolutions against them, they continue to brutalise the Palestinians and, with the help of the worlds biggest bully, America, they ignore the international cries for justice. Someday the decent nations of the world will put a stop to this historical war crime, let's hope it's not too late.
