|It is a horrid situation. A nation that had to endure holocaust should know better. And the US, of course, is the only country in the UN Security Council blocking any decisions in that regard.|

|Its funny how the western world turns a blind eye to Israeli aggression. What the Israelis have done to the Palestinians is no better than what Hitler did to the Jews, it just more subtle and longer lasting. Slow but steady ethnic cleansing. They have already stuffed the popultion in their camps (the minute wastelands of Gaza and the West Bank) after having taken over the land, wealth and resources, and then the world wonders why muslims turn to terrorism?|

Nothing subtle about that.
The western world is the BIGGEST beneficiary to whats going on, thats why they're quite and pleased. You think what REALLY happend in Rwanda is just a friction between 2 tribes? You know what time it is. The middle east & Africa are indisputably the RICHEST territories in the world for 1000s of years, all you gotta do is look up the history.
The bigger the conflicts, the fatter the outcomes that the western world reaps.

|I dont know why are you all talking about the "Western world". The European countries have said their word. It was diametrically opposite of what the US did say. Blame the U.S., not the Western World.|

| This is getting ridiculous. Israel is now breaking international humanitarian law and possibly committing war crimes.

And here is a video which pretty much sums up the whole situation.
(I don't know how to embed... mods?)
Israel's prime minister today alluded that Israel is not subject to international law. Anyone who follows politics will know this is a big big deal - without international law, we are nothing but barbarians.
This is simply unbelievable. It is beginning to look a lot like genocide

This is an OUTRAGE!
Nothing about this is being reported in U.S. media. I haven't heard much about the crisis in Gaza since last week. The main talk here is the inaguration, the economy, and Blogojevich. The Gaza Crisis has been pushed completely off the front page.

hmmm... I wonder why
Israel has also prevented any journalists (as well as essential humanitarian aid) from entering Gaza. Even UN aid workers were injured by Israeli fire
As it stands, the US is the only nation in the world who has come out in support of Israel.
President Bush blamed Palestine exclusively for the war and blocked any UN resolution against it. As far as I know, all Obama has said is that he does not share Bush's view.
Eventually, in the face of international pressure, the US backed down saying it would not to block any resolution. But bizarrely, when it came to the vote, the US abstained from the vote. Literally every other nation on the face of the planet condemned Israel, and America stayed silent.

That's because they support Israel.

Tony, where you've been? It's BEEN a genocide for decades.

But usually, they at least try to hide it. They're not giving two shits this time - they're even firing on the UN
