Your Excellency

As israel’s isolation grows, so does the ignominy of the unqualified and stupid British support for Israel’s impunity to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Britain’s recent fatuous blaming of Gazans for Israel’s Pillar of Cloud atrocities is both spurious and vile….

Rights And Accountability: In a letter to activists, the UK foreign office blames Palestinians in Gaza for bringing suffering on themselves (20 January 2013)

As with Operation Cast Lead, it was Israel that broke the ceasefire to launch Operation Pillar of Cloud.

Furthermore, January 19th saw the 56th Israeli violation of the  truce.Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired at Palestinian homes to the east of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.
Israeli soldiers stationed in military watchtowers and armored vehicles opened heavy machinegun fire at the Gaza international airport with no reports of casualties or damages reported.

‘The incident is the latest in a series of breaches of the calm agreement brokered by Egypt on 21/11/2012 that killed four Palestinians and wounded dozens. The violations also included the arrest of 30 fishermen at sea and blasting and seizing control of many fishing boats off the coasts of Gaza.’

Hamas has not violated the truce.

Britain with its abstention vote on Palestine’s  membership to the UN is out of step with the majority of  the  world’s nations and preposterously persists in making a fool of itself diplomatically, morally and legally by reneging on its obligation under international law to protect the State of Palestine and its citizens  from Israeli war crimes including the illegal occupation of the  State of Palestine, colonial expansionism, apartheid policies and aggression.
