Other relevant issues also matter. Media scoundrel suppress what viewers and readers most need to know. They're on their own to find out.
On November 21, 137 global academics, activists, and other pro-Palestinian supporters published a " Letter on Gaza : The World Cannot Stand by as Palestine is Battered to Death." In part is said:
"We the undersigned watch with horror yet another ruthless and criminal Israeli assault on the defenceless people of the Gaza Strip."
"The assassination of the Hamas' military commander, Ahmad al-Jabari, by Israel was intended to disrupt any chance for a permanent cease fire between the two sides and caused the current cycle of violence."- Advertisement -
"For the last five years, al-Jabari had been responsible for limiting rocket attacks on Israel."
Western inaction shows complicity with Israeli crimes. Washington, EU states, and other NATO partners share responsibility.
"No other people in the world has been subjected, for more than sixty years, to such relentless acts of collective punishment and military brutality as have the Palestinian people."
End Gaza's blockade. Let people and goods move freely. Ease a humanitarian crisis. The world no longer can wait. Palestine is being "battered to death." Stopping it must be enforced.
