Remarks About Gaza From An Unlikely Source

by Dick Mac

The actions of Israel in Gaza are reprehensible and opportunistic. They choose this time to attack Palestinians because there is nobody keeping watch in the White House. Bush will say nothing about their brutality, and Obama is in no position to take action against them, because he is not the President. Israel's rogue activities go unchecked. American tax dollars pour into Israel and nobody in power says anything about Israel's slaughter of civilians.

Musician and producer Brian Eno has published a brief statement about the troubles in Gaza:

Stuff one and a half million people into a tiny space, stifle their access to water, electricity, food and medical treatment, destroy their livelihoods, and humiliate them regularly...and, surprise, surprise - they turn hostile.

Brian Eno - perhaps you can find out what fellow Arab countries have done for the "Palestinians." Till then, stay behind the board.
