GAZA CITY — Israeli forces killed at least 11 people, including several children, in a single airstrike that destroyed a home here on Sunday, as Israel pressed its bombardment of the Gaza Strip for a fifth day, deploying warplanes and naval vessels to pummel the coastal enclave. [article on hold]
Five days of horror and tragedy. Take a look at this:
Five days of children dying, parents weeping, funerals being held and hospitals brimming with the wounded (and dead). And what are the Muslims doing?
Praying? Collecting donations? Turning a blind eye? Turning the other way round?
[Me included]. This is as much to myself as it is to the rest of the Muslim world. Here you've got a Muslim leader, of an Islamic party...
pledging that his country won't leave Gaza along to fend for itself. Really? What is there beyond this mere lip service, I ask? What has he actually done? He's the "nearest neighbor!" ... He has an army. [It's a separate question who controls their army]. But really. It's been five days Mr. Morsi. Where are all your promises before you got elected? Condemning Israel's attacks is the exact same thing as former PM Yousuf Raza Gilani condemning drone attacks in Pakistan. Mere movement of lips/tongue, nothing more.
Important bits are in bold. Now check out the statements of this particular man in Bangkok right now.
Israeli Strike in Gaza Kills at Least 11, Including Children
Oh yeah? Defend itself from 50 year old ladies, women and small babies? Defend itself by attacking media outlets that broadcast their attrocities? Funny how people completely change the fundamental definitions of human rights, when it's not in their own interest. This is the media building they bombed.
And this is the 10-month old, they killed, using their right to defend themselves.
