Gaza blockade a ‘collective punishment’ in ‘clear violation of international humanitarian law’


The dire situation in Gaza cannot be resolved by providing humanitarian aid. The closure imposed on the Gaza Strip is about to enter its fourth year, choking off any real possibility of economic development. Gazans continue to suffer from unemployment, poverty and warfare, while the quality of Gaza's health care system has reached an all-time low.

The whole of Gaza's civilian population is being punished for acts for which they bear no responsibility. The closure therefore constitutes a collective punishment imposed in clear violation of Israel's obligations under international humanitarian law.


The words not of George Galloway, Seumas Milne, or John Pilger, but the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Clearly they’re a bunch of Jew-hating, terrorist supporting anti-semites.

Meanwhile, the Middle East country that thinks it's above international law has announced its own internal inquiry into its deadly raid on the humanitarian aid flotilla. How very decent of them. And guess who one of the two foreign observers in the inquiry is going to be- why it’s none other than the Henry Jackson Society-supporting, the Rt Hon Lord David Trimble!

You really couldn’t make this stuff up, could you?

Neil; you've hit the nail on the head by saying that you couldn't make this stuff up. However try writing a novel about a rouge state, with nuclear weapons, getting $30bn in aid from the US, and surreptitios support from almost all the global main stream media, you'de be told it just doesn't ring true.

David Trimble. You've gotta laugh. Time for Israel's orange revolution.

Totally off topic. I remember you writing on Jamaica a while back. I just came across this great little piece:

Hopefully the countdown for the end of the terrorist state that they call ( israel) has start ticking.... how many supporters left for the zionist child murderer gangs

How many people along history dared to call killing children a ( success) other than the zionists and their terrorist leader Ariel Sharon?

That would be the same International Red cross that knew of the dissections of living people by our "police2 back at least as far as 2001 & has refused to answer questions about what it has done to find where the body organs went.

(Since it is known that the organs were flown out from Tirana airport there will certainly be records of where the aircraft went & thus of who took them through customs & thus of what hospitals they went to.)

The IRC may or may not be anti-Semitic but they certainly know which side their bread is buttered on.
