Lament for the children of Gaza

This piece of music sprang from the onslaught of images of children from Gaza. Be warned that some of these images are pretty horrific.

My intention in putting this together is to bring forward revulsion that this can happen, as a riposte to the arguments as to whether such violence is right or wrong, whether it is justified or not.

Are we an evolved species? This is not only about Gaza it is about it’s about us, human-kind.

I overheard a man talking about his kitchen in my local supermarket today, he said “my kitchen looks like a bomb hit it” I thought “tell that to a Gazan” How far removed from these atrocities we are, and yet our tax’s help pay for the weaponry that is being used, our governments refusal to condemn Israel, and yet in the same breath will condemn ISIS in an instant, brings in to sharp focus the double standards and hypocrisy of the UK and the US.

This is not new, we have been killing each other throughout our history. As far as I can ascertain, in all of recorded history there have only a couple of hundred years where there were no wars happening and those periods followed massive empire building.

Only now we can see it, we can sit in our comfortable rooms and see the children cut in half. We must speak out against this in any way we can. To not speak up is to condone it.

I also intended to write an emotive piece of music.

IDF’s Gaza assault is to control Palestinian gas, avert Israeli energy crisis

Boycott Israel Today

undiscovered

Israel’s defence minister has confirmed that military plans to ‘uproot Hamas’ are about dominating Gaza’s gas reserves.

Yesterday, Israeli defence minister and former Israeli Defence Force (IDF) chief of staff Moshe Ya’alon announced that Operation Protective Edge marks the beginning of a protracted assault on Hamas. The operation “won’t end in just a few days,” he said, adding that “we are preparing to expand the operation by all means standing at our disposal so as to continue striking Hamas.”

This morning, he said:

“We continue with strikes that draw a very heavy price from Hamas. We are destroying weapons, terror infrastructures, command and control systems, Hamas institutions, regime buildings, the houses of terrorists, and killing terrorists of various ranks of command… The campaign against Hamas will expand in the coming days, and the price the organization will pay will be very heavy.”

But in 2007, a year before Operation Cast…

Why Israel Fears the Boycott

Boycott Israel Today

JERUSALEM — IF Secretary of State John Kerry’s attempts to revive talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority fail because of Israel’s continuing construction of illegal settlements, the Israeli government is likely to face an international boycott “on steroids,” as Mr. Kerry warned last August.

These days, Israel seems as terrified by the “exponential” growth of the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (or B.D.S.) movement as it is by Iran’s rising clout in the region. Last June, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu effectively declared B.D.S. a strategic threat. Calling it the “delegitimization” movement, he assigned the overall responsibility for fighting it to his Strategic Affairs Ministry. But B.D.S. doesn’t pose an existential threat to Israel; it poses a serious challenge to Israel’s system of oppression of the Palestinian people, which is the root cause of its growing worldwide isolation.

The Israeli government’s view of B.D.S. as…
