NO GLORY IN WAR

What did some Israeli troops leave behind on the walls of Helmi Samouni's two-storey house in Zeitoun, on the southern outskirts of Gaza City?

"Most disturbing of all was the graffiti they daubed on the walls of the ground floor. Some was in Hebrew, but much was naively written in English: "Arabs need 2 die", "Die you all"; "Make war not peace", "1 is down, 999,999 to go", and scrawled on an image of a gravestone the words: "Arabs 1948-2009".

(From Rory McCarthy's account, The Guardian, 20 January 2009)

This slaughter, I will not call it a war, was so filled with hate, racism and contempt for the lives of the Palestinians. And as if the Palestinins were not aware of this already these hate-filled messages were left inside their homes and buildings, what should have been their places of safety, to remind them of the despair of their situation.

I cannot understand nevermind accept, the lack of action by the world - the US, UN and Britian are complicit in these war crimes because they did nothing to stop them. Indeed they did not even condemn them outright.

How can we expect justice from our government when they do not even have the moral strength to stand up and speak out at such blatant acts of inhumanity and in the face of what amounts to as a holocaust??
