So bizzarly, the news machine has gone into overdrive about israel's attack on a civilian aid convoy. Interestingly, we've seen all manner of politicians from Turkey, Germany, Italy and the UN yet nothing in particular from the higher ups in the UK. Sure William Hague said something ballsy about how Israel needs to stop the blockade of Gaza, but if you read between the lines, little is said about israel's damnable offenses.
When i first read about it, i decided to read different newspapers and articles from around the world to get a feel for the varied stances certain papers and countries. As it stood, the readers of papers from the guardian to the sun to the BBCs website, commented in a sensible way condemning israel's actions. Over we go to comments posted by Americans on an american paper and boy oh boy. Apparantly, there is no need for aid in ghaza, they're all fine and all terrorists there. And loads of cries of support for the state of israel.
just to clarify, killing civilians is illegal. Let's not bug Israel with the issue of morality, let's just deal with accountability. Killing people is illegal. Storming a ship in international waters is illegal. Denying people basic human rights is illegal.
Yet, nothing is being said or done regarding israel's blatant disregard for the law.
And on a side note, what is tony blares new job? Something something about middle eastern something or other. It'll be interesting to see what he says about this latest act of evil.
Typing all this on my iPad has been way fun. This thing rocks.
Seriously though, Israel is fucked up.
But my iPad! Which, let's face it was probably designed somewhere in apple labs in Israel. Yuck, im sick of this thing already. My only solace lies in the fact that it was manufactured in china and that china will soon rule the world. And there's no room for a wild card like israel in china's vision of the future.
My iPad!!!!!! So shiney and nice and new!
Anyway, I have work tomorrow. Good night.
