Israel’s Slaughter of
Civilians in Gaza!
“Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.” —Pierre Krähenbühl, Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees
Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN designated shelter in Gaza. Krähenbühl voiced outrage over the behavior of the Israeli military, who he says was repeatedly given the coordinates of the school:
“The precise location of the Jabalia Elementary Girls School and the fact that it was housing thousands of internally displaced people was communicated to the Israeli army seventeen times, to ensure its protection; I condemn in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces” Krähenbühl said. http://commondreams.org/news/2014/07/30/world-stands-disgraced-israel-bombs-another-un-designated-shelter-gaza

On the basis of our ethics and practice, we are denouncing what we witness in the aggression of Gaza by Israel. http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(14)61044-8/fulltext Nobel peace laureates and celebrities call for military embargo on Israel

“Israel is a Terrorist State”
Bolivia President Evo Morales said “we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” Morales said the Gaza offensive shows “that Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”
