The actions of Israel overnight attacking a school designated a UN safe area in Gaza, is nothing short of a war crime. 15 innocents killed and dozens injured - disgraceful in any language. There is absolutely no excuse for this slaughter. Even if rockets were fired from the local area it is no excuse to kill already traumatised children. Slaughter of the innocents.

For years, the state of Israel has treated the Palestinian people like scum.
They deserve to be treated as full humans and accorded the full rights
all humans deserve. No more settlements on Palestinian land. After the
horrors to the Jews in WW2 you would think Israel would want to help
build a kinder world. Not a bit of it! They seem to want to spread hate.
I know Hamas must stop firing rockets at Israel and I know there are
good Jewish people, but the war on Gaza is fostering hate and yet more
What is needed are real substantive talks leading to a comprehensive and
fair peace for all in the region. Now is the time for jaw, jaw not war,
war. Will Israel never learn? If you treat the Palestinian people as
less than human what do you expect?
At the moment, Israel, supported by the USA and the UK amongst others,
is not even seriously trying to get a lasting peace. Any eye for an eye
seems to be all Israel understands. Now is the time for real love and kindness to be shared and
long-term peace to be given a real chance. People of Israel - wake
up! USA and UK: support the Palestinians at the same level as Israel.
Give peace a real chance!
