The latest Israeli human carnage wreaked upon the basically defenseless people
of Gaza appears to have, finally, turned stomachs the world over. Over 2,000 were killed, 10,000 are wounded, thousands of homes are turned into rubble and 500,000 are in search of shelter. Of those, 70% are women and children. This was inflicted in a closed area twice the size of Washington D.C. These horrors follow a well-established if redundant script we already detailed in 'What War?'. The names have changed but the methods remain.
Israelis overwhelmingly applauded the mass slaughter of Palestinians, an admirable people defending themselves under international laws. It is them, the Israelis, that are the illegal occupiers of lands stolen beyond 1967 borders. In their blind and inhumane enthusiasm, they exposed the true face of a racist state turned fascist.
The DullesNOW Executive Committee reiterates the previous public positions taken but the first step today is to support the immediate and unconditional lifting of the illegal siege of Gaza.
