Israel continue their sickening war crimes

Whilst Israel continue their sickening war crimes against Palestinians in Gaza......
  • Obama and co. loudly demand a ceasefire whilst quietly but simultaneously signing off military support to restock Israel's weapons and ammunitions. links to story on,,
"The United States is committed to the security of Israel, and it is vital to US national interests to assist Israel to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defense capability," Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.  "This defense sale is consistent with those objectives."
This "self-defense capability" has killed 1600 Palestinians and counting, the vast majority of them civilians, since the Israeli operation began on July 8.  The US give Israel $3.1bn is military aid per year BUT they want a ceasefire???
  • The Independent reveal evidence that British supplied arms are being used in the Gaza massacre.  The Government refuses to investigate.  link to article.
  • 1600 dead, Over 8000 injured.  400 thousand are homeless or displaced. Much of the Gaza Strip has less than two hours electricity a day and medicine and safe water are increasingly scarce.  Whoever initially broke the ceasefire is irrelevent when you consider all this and how Israel have now actually intensified their attacks since the ceasefire was broken.
Why won't world leaders actually do anything meaningful to stop this?  why are Israel untouchable?  David Cameron is scared to criticise Israel too harshly, is it because he'll lose support of the wealthy pro-Israeli conservative Party donors?  He does have a big election campaign to fund soon.....
