PHOTO COLLAGE: Israeli warplanes continue to strike Gaza 21Aug11 August 21, 2011
Editor’s note: Israel is continuing to pound Gaza – MEMO reports 19 killed and 42 injured. More distressing photos on MEMO website.
Is anyone going to do something about Israel’s flagrant disregard of human life? Children are being slaughtered and parents have nowhere to run to escape. Israel has the entire population of Gaza under siege and there is no safe haven for the Palestinians. Collective punishment directly contravenes Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, and is identified a war crime. How big must the numbers be before journalists will have the courage to write and editors to publish what Israel is doing again with impunity in violation of international law?
