The U.N. organization has criticized Israel’s decision to close border crossings into Gaza, preventing aid deliveries to the 1.5 million people living in the territory, saying on Saturday that the move could provoke a humanitarian crisis.
Such action cuts off the population from much-needed fuel supplies used to pump water and generate electricity to homes and hospitals,” Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, said.
Ban also urged an immediate end to violence in Gaza and Palestinian sniper and rocket attacks into Israel.
John Holmes, the UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs, said on Friday:
“We all understand the security problems and the need to respond to that but collective punishment of the people of Gaza is not, we believe, the appropriate way to do that.”
Holmes said the Israeli response was unwarranted.
“This kind of action against the people in Gaza cannot be justified, even by those rocket attacks,” he said.
More than 38 Palestinians have now been killed since Monday.
And the Arab leaders are deep in sleep. They were not summoned by the White House, as they were in the past, against Iraq – when they rushed to support the U.S. and its allies. These Arab leaders are our “friends and allies” and we must not disturb them from their deep coma. Let the Palestinians die.. why should any of you give a damn? Collect your millions, sleep in your luxurious palaces and drive your brand new Mercedes… celebrate and get drunk. You’re truly a worthless bunch of pigs.
Can’t you just learn from Africa? Africans supported their “brothers” in South Africa until that Apartheid tumbled down.
Your Master, Bush, visited most of you recently and you kissed his ass. He insulted you to your faces, mind you, your existence and whatever it is you stand for: which really amounts to nothing, unless dictated by your Masters! You have no honor or dignity…
Another Holocaust is taking place against a nation or what’s left of it. If the rest of the world is blind, does that mean you too have to look away? You have no voice and no power; your hands are also covered with blood: Palestinian blood. I’m “happy” to see that you joined hands with the NaZionists in their attempt to annihilate the Palestinians.
Drop dead. Please. You too Israel.
