These 2 conflicts are pretty much top of the news with regards to conflicts, and just last week we had someone spray the following on the server, which resulted in some saying it was wrong to do so, however with something that is so contentious as the plight of people in Gaza, is it really so bad ?
We see all types of art put put a point of view across,that is not always welcome by some. and is seen as down right inflammatory by others. You cannot have items such as gay rights on the forum and yet shy away from political and human rights with such conflicts as these.
Today in the news we had Baroness Warsi resigning over this countries stance about Gaza, and you can see why when you look at how much David Cameron has got on his high horse about the Ukraine, and helping to dish out sanctions against Russia, whilst saying very little about Gaza.
Foreign Office minister Baroness Warsi has resigned from the government, saying its policy on the crisis in Gaza is "morally indefensible".
I completely agree, and In fact the whole group of EU politicians that are lambasting the Russians, and rightly so imho, are saying little about Israel and the Palestinians.
They are so quick to scream Human Rights and War Crimes when it comes to the Ukraine, but do not shout loud enough about killing children, whilst the murderers say we will look into it, then kill even more.
Isn't it about time someone stood up and said enough to the Israelis, yes once upon a time someone did something nasty to you, so why are you acting in the same way ?
Gaza is an area of land that has been isolated from the rest of the world, through blockades for many years, and yet because the Yanks support Israel, no one has said, hey can you remember Warsaw, where a city was ringed of with German troops, and Jewish fighters were killing off German soldiers from within that blockade. Yes it is different in some ways, but transpose Warsaw to modern times or Gaza to be surrounded by Storm troopers, and then make your own comparisons. Israel is, historically, made up of an invading force, forging their own country from someone else's land and circling an area to keep the original citizens as prisoners.
Hamas has been blamed for hurling rockets into Israel, and I am sure that if rockets had been available in Warsaw, the Jews would have done the same. Isn't it about time Israel was made to toe the line and stop being belligerent now, and let people live there lives in peace. You cannot moan and whine about the past, whilst in the present be the antagonists
Our political leaders need to be even handed and fair. You cannot say we are truly multicultural, until you can support each of your citizens no matter what part of the world they come from, it is just cynicism and lies by a Government that is not fit to rule. Mind you the Conservatives have always shown they are just lapdogs to the Yanks, down boy, you can't say that, or look I have my hand up now you say this.
