OIL AND GOLD WORTH MORE THAN BLOODSHED OF PALESTINIANS
I feared turning on the news this morning. More deaths, more carnage, the blood of innocents flooding the 139 sq mile coast which makes up Gaza city. But the media was concerned about the jump in oil prices and gold. Anyone would have thought that the loss of human life was insignificant.
God news is that Desmond Tutu has spoken up once again:
Israel’s bombardment of Gaza “bears all the hallmarks of war crimes”, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said in a statement on Sunday.
“In the context of total aerial supremacy, in which one side in a conflict deploys lethal aircraft against opponents with no means of defending themselves, the bombardment bears all the hallmarks of war crimes.”
The attacks, in retaliation for rockets fired by the Palestinians, would not contribute to the security of Israel, he said.
“It is a blight not only on the Middle East, but on the entire world – and particularly world leaders who have consistently failed the people of Palestine and Israel over the past 60 years.”
New death toll = 315 people had been killed in the three-day raid, including seven children under the age of 15,
Wounded = more than 1,400
