“Brown is appeasing domestic horror at the Israeli massacre in Gaza by calling for a ceasefire. Meanwhile British diplomats on the United Nations Security Council are under direct instructions to offer “tacit support” to United States’ efforts to block a ceasefire.
I have been told this directly by a former colleague in the UK Mission to the United Nations.”
Craig Murray. Former British Ambassador.
“December 27 ‘will live in infamy.’ The people of Gaza were ‘suddenly and deliberately attacked by….air forces of the’ State of Israel. The ‘attack was deliberately planned many (months) ago. During the intervening time (Israel) deliberately sought to deceive (Palestinians) by false statements and expressions of hope for’ the peace process.
“‘The (weekend and continued) attack(s) caused severe damage to’ property throughout Gaza. In addition, ‘many (Palestinian) lives have been lost. The facts (on the ground) speak for themselves….this ‘unprovoked and dastardly attack’ must not go unanswered.'”
Steve Lendman, paraphrasing Franklin Roosevelt addressing the American Congress after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. Lendman is a Research Associate of the Centre for Research on Globalization and co-host of The Global Research News Hour.
“The barbaric Israeli assault on Gaza will go down in infamy alongside Deir Yasin and Sabra and Shatilla as one of the defining events of the Palestinian tragedy and resistance.
“The atrocities are continuing – so too must the world-wide protests. We in Britain have a particular responsibility. Our government, alongside George W Bush, has sickeningly placed the blame on the Palestinians for their suffering in Gaza.
“Our government arms the quisling Arab regimes whose cowardice and greed are as necessary to Israel’s murder as its US supplied weapons.
“Historically, it was a British foreign minister who authored the Palestinian tragedy when he signed their country away to the Zionist movement.”
George Galloway, Member of the British Paliement.
