The Massacre

Posted: June 10, 2006 in War crimes

The world watches as the 21st Century Nazis continue their Ethnic Cleansing and War crimes. It's time that the United States bomb Israel just as it did Serbia, Iraq and Libya. Otherwise, who stands for justice these days?

From an AP story:

…Kamal Ghobn said he had just arrived at the beach on a bus with about 50 relatives when the attack took place. "I was still parking the bus and everyone got out to go to the beach. As I locked the door I felt the thud of the shells and felt a sting in my side," said Ghobn, who was slightly wounded by shrapnel. Gobn said he saw four shells land.

The artillery fire scattered body parts, destroyed a tent and sent bloody sheets flying into the air. A panicked crowd quickly gathered, screaming and running around hysterically.

A sobbing girl lay in the sand, crying for her father. "Father! Father!" she screamed.

The body of a man lay motionless in the sand nearby.

Palestinian officials said seven people were killed and more than 30 wounded at the beach. Hardest hit was the Ghalia family, which lost six members, among them the father, one of his two wives, an infant boy and an 18-month-old girl.

"This was his first day at the beach this summer. He was taking his kids to play. It's destiny," said Nasreen Ghalia, a sister-in-law of the dead father. She said one of the survivors was a 7-year-old girl, Hadeel, who had not been told she had lost her parents and siblings.

"Hadeel is now an orphan," she said.

UN, US reaction

A spokesman for Kofi Annan said the UN secretary-general "is deeply disturbed at the killing of civilians, including women and children … and calls for a full investigation".

While France, Egypt and Russia condemned the attack, Sean McCormack, spokesman for the US State Department, said: "Let me just state what we have said before: That Israel has a right to defend itself.

"We also at the same time encourage Israel to … consider the consequences of its actions."
