No, it is the so called "international community" that merits our prime condemnation; an "international community" made up of First World authorities, the UN Secretariat, and civil society movements that presently participate in the few debates they agree to have in a primitive fashion with lies, fabrications and deceit, while children are slaughtered.
The great majority of the citizens of this commercialized industrialized world community of wealth manipulation and power have watched as their governments acquiesced and accepted Israeli crimes against humanity. They watched inhibited to react in spite of seeing through conglomerate media attempts at justifying the massive amount of death. And most of us dare not speak out for we still hear the ghosts of the holocaust victims silently screaming, pleading against the apathy of the international community at the time of their round up and executions.
Under the frighteningly phantasmic protective excusability of a planetary-sized black umbrella of ghastly and nightmarish, but inescapably real, memories of a mad horror in Europe, the violent Zionist conquerers of Palestine are allowed to go forward in grisly payback.
There is little point in condemning the actions of those gone insane, who are unable to remember that we all, each, and every one of us, are going to die relatively soon. Better we try to understand what is behind the insane behavior. Hastening the day for thousands of fellow human beings is merely one symptom of the irrationality of the mentally deranged.
Better yet, would be to condemn the heartless connivence of politicians in 'the international community who excuse the insanity of wildly uncontrolled mass-homicide, rained down on so many innocent brothers and sisters, at the very same moment that the individuals in command are being accused of crimes against humanity in the International Court in the Hague.
Would that citizens of today's 'international community' could avoid a repeat of the kind of disinformation after World War II, when the corporate capitalist world was able to explain away the involvement of European and American industrialists and their colleagues in governments, and spare them condemnation, and even the mildest criticism of complicity.
We watch in frozen horror Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warmly shaking hands smilingly over and over again with those sons and daughters of Europe who command a heavily armed high-tech air force, navy and army bombarding mercilessly the tightly packed and imprisoned Mid-eastern population of Gaza.
We patiently wonder if the Secretary General would brave entering air and ground attacked Gaza to warmly shake hands with those elected government leaders not yet assassinated for having allowed the firing of rockets into southern Israel to protest the years long unending Israeli blockade - cognizant of the fact that these rockets had caused no fatalities or serious injuries prior to the Israeli Gaza bombing and invasion which as of latest count has taken more than one thousand two hundred lives.
Instead of all-smiles photo op posing for cameras to the enormous comfort and propaganda effort of the Israelis making war on a captive population, would not a compassionate and serious, perhaps even grim, countenance be more appropriate out of respect for the huge toll of dead children? Enthusiastic repeating handshakes for video cameras, be they handshakes with anyone involved in a such a man made catastrophic human tragedy - is this not a bizarre message to the world audience and to that 'international community' the Secretary represents.
