Lebanon Latest: Israeli War Crimes?
A war crime?
One of many?
Committed by Israel's IDF against innocent Lebanese civilians?
Civilians who were fleeing the continuing ferocious Israeli onslaught on their homeland . Fleeing in fear of their lives. Fleeing on the express orders of the ruthless Israeli invaders' 'evacuation' instructions .
Was this yet another one of many recent war crimes committed against all of humanity in general, and the poor Lebanese people in particular ?
Before forming a personal opinion, first read the following clip, then the relevant Guardian report in full.
Read the rest of the Guardian's gut-wrenching article right here.
The ambulanceman gave Ali the job of keeping his mother alive.
The 12-year-old did what he could. "Mama, mama, don't go to sleep," he sobbed, gently patting her face beneath her chin.
Behind her black veil, her eyelids were slowly sinking.
"I'm going to die," she sighed. "Don't say that, mama," Ali begged, and then slid to the ground in tears.
On the pavement around mother and son were the other members of the Sha'ita family, their faces spattered with each other's blood. All were in varying shades of shock and injury. A tourniquet was tied on Ali's mother's arm.
A few metres away, his aunt lay motionless, the white T-shirt beneath her abaya stained red.
Two sisters hugged each other and wept, oblivious to the medics tending their wounds. "Let them take me, let them take me," one screamed.
Their mother was placed on a stretcher, and lifted into the ambulance. "God is with you, mama," Ali said. She reached up with her good arm to caress his face.
The Sha'itas had thought they were on the road to safety when they set out yesterday, leaving behind a village which because of an accident of geography - it is five miles from the Israeli border - had seemed to make their home a killing ground.
They had been ordered to evacuate by the Israelis.
Then there's this, from today's Independent's front page.
And then there's the Mirror.
This Old Brit has this evening sent a message to his Member of Parliament, expressing his absolute outrage and demanding she immediately join the ranks of parliamentarians who've had enough of Blair's abetting of both Israel's and America's willful roles in this ongoing horror story.
Only if & when enough constituents show their elected representatives that they are deadly serious re: their votes -- the very next time they get to cast them -- will these politi-pigs pull their fat, stinking snouts from the trough, and sit up and listen.
So, what did you do today?
And/or what will you do tomorrow?
In the interests of decency & honesty absolutely no mention of (nor reference to), an American Bushwoman named Rice, has been made in this article -- since we see her as simply a shyster.
