Since most people are moved in one direction or the other by the headlines then this will not get much rise out of many…..I know with the refugee crisis we can only handle one horror story at a time…..but this is as big as the refugee story…..just NO one gives a damn!
I know that few Americans will remember the Israeli attack on Gaza last Summer……I mean why should they it is not like it was any of their concern, right?
Wrong! Anytime we have a nation that decides that the destruction of a way of life be their personal benefit is nothing short of war crimes and should be charged as such.
Let me refresh your memory….last Summer Israel used the time honored excuse for the destruction of a way of life…..self-defense to destroy as whole society….
What once looked like this……a thriving city…….
Now looks like this……..
Their actions did not intend on punishing those that want to fire rockets into Israel proper but rather a destruction of a way of life and an entire society…..whose citizens had nothing to do with those fearsome, yet inaccurate rockets that are allegedly fired into Israel from Gaza.
Their action, the Israelis, was begun with one aim to make Gaza uninhabitable and in doing so they believe they have removed any threat. Not damn likely!
The total destruction of Gaza was aimed not at the infrastructure that could be used for future attacks but rather the people as a whole…..they spent hours and days bombing everything from power plants to schools to hospitals….all of which is approaching a genocide.
But after the dust settled the world came to the rescue of Gaza with assistance in the rebuilding of their society and lives….all to have the operation crapped on by Israel who refuses to allow materials and supplies into Gaza to begin the reconstruction….sorry, that is not self-defense…..more like hatred.
With all these delays….what is the future of Gaza and its residents?
Israeli military action and economic blockade have rendered the coastal strip unfit for civilian life, report says

If Gaza is to have a future then Israel MUST be made to follow some sort of decorum and allow the reconstruction begin. If not then charges should be filed to the ICC as war crimes…..crimes against humanity…..Israel must pay a price for their hatred and their actions. The rest of the world would demand it from anyone else….Israel is NOT immune to the laws of humanity.
